The potential of pluripotent stem cells

Therapeutic breakthroughs based on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) signify a paradigm shift in healthcare as they could allow us to replace diseased or injured cells. iPSC-based therapies could replace, for example, the neurons that die off in Parkinson’s disease or the retinal tissue damaged by macular degeneration. They could one day even obviate the need for a heart transplant.
