Embryonic stem cells and their possible use in medicine

Embryonic stem cells (ZKM) are a promising subject of research for modern science. With the potentially unlimited potential differentiation may become a dream come true modern medicine by providing enabling cells to replace any worn or damaged tissue. At the moment the key is to develop a technique that allows for control of the fate of the ZKM. The article discusses the basic properties of stem cells and techniques for the ZKM. In addition, control techniques are approximate differentiation ZKM and their potential applications in medicine.


The tolerance of the organism to potent drugs and methods of treatment ( and such methods are , without exception, the control of hematological malignancies ) depends both on the age and the presence of accompanying diseases . In turn, the occurrence of these disorders increases with age , so these are statistical parameters (although not individually ) correlated. The second issue that must be taken into account here is the possible discrepancy chronological age and biological age in individual patients .

The role of Rel proteins / NFkB / IkB in the pathogenesis of cancer

Rel family of transcription / NFkB / IkB plays an important role in the regulation of a number of processes related to immune and inflammatory responses and control the growth of normal and neoplastic cells. In the present knowledge of the structure of proteins Rel / NF-kB / IkB, mechanisms of action, physiological significance, and discusses their role in the pathogenesis of retroviral-induced cancers and other human cancers, especially leukemias and lymphomas. The paper presents a method of counteracting the disturbances in this family of proteins leading to tumorigenesis.
