As technological advancement grow, scientists begin to speculate the realistic doing of human cloning, as this happens opposing groups and organizations raise their voice against it and create the question whether scientists should be allowed to clone humans, the promise of cloning at any level can revolutionize the world, and change it for the better, but are we are not ready for human trials. If successful, cloning can have a lot of positive technological advancements that would help humanity. Dolly, the first cloned mammal, inspired many scientists to speculate a new era in cloning technology and raise hopes for future probability in which human cloning was possible. At the center of the controversy, surges the closest thing to a clone that lives a healthy and regular life, identical twins. The promise of cloning at any level can revolutionize the world, and change it for the better, but are we really ready for human trials?
Fredrick made a ground breaking discovery with diabetes and provided a treatment and saved millions. Gene therapy began to prove itself in medicine as it reversed affects from a previously untreatable disease. Genetic engineering still has long ways to go, however it is a promising treatment that will bring us more treatment and cures in the future.
This new study is challenging the way people think about DNA. This study by the ... ... middle of paper ... ... Medical companies give their clients safe medicine and this is another reason why the genetic medicine and treatment should add on to medicine the world already have. Genetic testing is revolutionary it has the capability to help the world advance and grow. The United States have the ability to use technology and develop technology that could change our world. Through genetic experimentation diseases could cease to plague our citizens, the world could have a new and exciting medical renaissance, and the treatments to diseases would be enduring.
There would also be savings in terms of energy and resources dedicated to studying experiments that result potentially irrelevant and dangerous results. Stem cell research is ethical and requires deeper experimentation. From increasing the safety of medicine to developing treatments that cure diseases, stem cells are the key to success. Stem cells can also be used to determine how diseases and injuries progress and affect certain cells within the body. Furthermore, using stem cells for research purposes will save money by cutting out some if not all animal testing, provide safer and better medications, as well as allow the allocation of saved resources to other research endeavors.
Rilutek is the first effective treatment for people with ALS. Laboratory studies suggest that Rilutek is “neuroprotective” which means it protects nerve cells from damage. So in simpler terms, this drug fights off the high amounts of glutamate in hopes of slowing down ALS. This drug is not a surefire cure for ALS though, and also any abilities lost before taking the drug will not be restored. So far it is just a hope for the future; maybe someday studies and advancements such as this will lead to a cure for ALS.
Human cloning is very valuable in surgical treatments and procedures. Through cloning, organs with cancerous cells are replaced preventing the spread of cancer in the body. With human cloning, doctors are able to repair and replace damaged tissues, nerves and organs by cloning them with new ones. Kidney and liver failure can also be treated through clonin... ... middle of paper ... ...oning is right and further research should be encouraged on the issue since it is a good way to save and improve lives. No matter what we say or do, future studies on human cloning will continue, as more and more ethical and moral issues arise.
Cloning can be helpful to those who. “The hope is that cells can be generated to cure these types of diseases where one cell has gone wrong. The growth and transplant of new nerve cells would help with Parkinson’s, the growth cells to produce more insulin for diabetics, and new heart muscle for those suffering from heart disease.” –MCB181 Honors Biology Group 1. Taking the risk of this cloning procedure cannot only extend a person’s lifetime but can also save their life from having to worry about reoccurring organ problems. The medical application of this achievement, benefiting an immense amount of people, is the therapeutic use of cloning.
Benefits of Human Cloning Some of the Benefits of cloning are very appealing. Listed below are some of the benefits which could be possible with the use of cloning technology: • Rejuvenation. Dr. Richard Seed, one of the leading proponents of human cloning technology, suggests that it may someday be possible to reverse the aging process because of what we learn from cloning. • Human cloning technology could be used to reverse heart attacks. Scientists believe that they may be able to treat heart attack victims by cloning their healthy heart cells and injecting them into the areas of the heart that may have been damaged.
Gene technology or the genetic engineering is the outcome of the technology itself; it’s going to cast both positive and negative impacts on humans as well as other entities of the biological family. Promoters and enthusiasts of this technology argue that, this technology has the potential to free the mankind from the sufferings and solve his problems. Gene technology has the potential to improvise the human circumstances by treating diseases, infertility problems, food shortage as well as repairing any physical damages like wound marks, burns or wrinkles. The changes which would be brought by the gene technology will positively change the whole landscape of the mankind. With the help of gene technology scientists would be able to cure the diseases by manipulating the DNA, health of society would be improved drastically, and food shortage problem would be solved.
It not only may be the answer to paralysis, but it also has the potential to cure many of our society’s “incurable” diseases. and be the starting point for numerous other futuristic challenges; therefore, the United States should continue to invest in stem cell research due to its medical benefits, potential to cure various diseases, and it is the basis for other regenerative projects. Background Webster’s dictionary states that a stem cell is, “a cell that upon division replaces its own numbers and also gives rise to cells that differentiate further into one or more specialized types, as various B cells and T cells” (Webster’s). In other words, stem cells are the mother cells of the body, having the ability to turn into any type of regular adult cell. However, once a cell specializes (like a skin cell, muscle cell, or hair cell) it can not change its function or type.
