If the adult stem cell is taken from the person to be treated, it will not cause rejection in the body. The body also recognises the cells as 'different' and will reject them without the use of drugs. Report Fri 18th November, 2016 16: Stem Cell Research - Advantages and Disadvantages.
Disadvantages Embryonic Stem Cells embryo destroyed when cells removed - some people think embryos have a right to live Embryonic Stem Cells body recognises the cells as 'different' and will reject them without the use of drugs All Stem Cells may produce cancer cells instead of healthy cells Adult Stem Cells difficult to find and extract from tissue Adult Stem Cells produce only a few types of cell. Report Thu 14th June, 2018 11: Embryonic stem cells are easy to extract from the embryo and can produce any type of cell, but the downside of using embryonic stem cells is that the embryo is destroyed when the cell is removed, this is an ethical issue because some people believe that embryos have a right to live.
