    Abstract Tooth Regeneration is a procedure in the field of stem cell biology. Regenerative medicine has always contributed significantly in the field of dentistry; however, research is still ongoing. Different methods and various types of cells are vital in teeth regeneration. Periodontitis and pulpitis disease destroys teeth with periodontal repair. Various techniques are used to aid in the repair process. They include; bone grafting and GTR. Tooth Regeneration

    Cyclosporine Transplantation is the act of transferring cells, tissues, or organs from one site to another. The malfunction of an organ system can be corrected with transplantation of an organ (eg, kidney, liver, heart, lung, or pancreas) from a donor. However, the immune system remains the most formidable barrier to transplantation as a routine medical treatment. As the immune system is responsible for the rejection of grafts understanding the mechanisms by which the immune system reject the graft

    Piaget’s four stages of Cognitive Development is a theory that maps out the stages of cognitive development that takes place from the moment of birth all the way adulthood. Each developmental stage consists of new milestone in thought, judgement, and knowledge, and each stages were created by a psychologist and a developmental biologist Jean Piaget. Piaget’s four stages takes place in different age of a child, it start with the sensorimotor stage that takes place from birth all the way through the age

    Flowers for Algernon is a story that proves that one who changes themself for someone else, will only make their life worse. In various journal entries, Daniel Keyes wrote in the point of view of the main character, Charlie Gordon, to show the thought process behind his actions to change himself. It goes through the process in which Charlie undergoes experimental brain surgery to become intelligent and raise his IQ by 300 percent. In Flowers For Algernon, Daniel Keyes presents the idea that one should

    COMPARATIVE ANATOMY OF AORTIC ARCHES IN VERTEBRATES DEFINITION: Aortic arches are also called as pharyngeal arteries. They are vascular structures that emerge from the ventricle of the heart. There are 6 pairs of these arches in embryonic stages which give rise to several major arteries later. They arise from the aortic sac and are present on the ventral and dorsal aorta. As discussed earlier that there are 6 pairs of aortic arches present in embryonic stages giving rise

    7301-22964 PHIL 164 The Argument Against Unlimited Procreative Freedom As scientific progress marches forward, the possibilities associated with process of procreation and childbearing have expanded significantly. The idea of procreative freedom follows generations of extending the right of bearing children, and supports the freedom to participate in non-coital procreative activities. Considering modern technological innovation, such as in vitro fertilization(IVF), the potential ethical and moral

    Body Hair Transplant In most hair transplant procedures usually, scalp hair is used for transplant. This is only possible if the patient has a good quality and amount of hair in their donor’s area which is mostly the back of the head. In cases where the patients do not have a good donors area to serve the purpose. In such cases, the hair surgeons may use hair from the body e.g. they may transplant beard hair to the head. Most patients call body hair transplant as chest hair transplant but mostly

    The third principle in the cell theory states that all cells arise from pre-existing cells. Cells are able to do this through the cell cycle. Every cells goes through this process, some more than others. The stages of the cell cycle are the G1, or Gap Phase 1, S phases, or Synthesis Phase, G2, or Gap Phase 2, the Mitosis phase, and the last phase, cytokinesis. There is also a G0 or Gap Phase 0, which occurs in nerve and muscle cells. All of these phases work together for the cell cycle’s end result:

    Essay Rough Draft “I was able to spar the other day. I felt good. My leg feels healthy,” said Cormier. “In like the third, fourth week is when the stem cells really start to take shape, really start to help the healing process. I’m in week five now. Man, I feel pretty good. I don’t have much pain in it. I just really have to control myself as I go forward because you want to go in head first.” Stem cells have been tested on for many years. Stem cells are cells that are unspecialized cells and they

    One of the most important arguments to this debate is presented through the scientific lens. Although embryonic stem cells pose enormous potential to treat and cure diseases and conditions, adult stem cells are more effective in treating these conditions. Adult stem cells pose a much lesser risk of forming tumors or not functioning as originally intended (Smith). Adult stem cells are also currently used today, as bone marrow transplants are a form of stem cell treatment (Stem Cells in Use). Understanding

The other stakeholder, the eggs, feel no pain seeing that they are too early in the developmental stage to even feel pain/have nerves; therefore, there is no harm inflicted upon the eggs. Finally the recipient of the eggs is the final stakeholder and the use of excess eggs for research does not affect the recipient. Consequently, stem cell

    Advancement in genetic research has enabled setting up of laboratories in various countries for trials of human cloning from somatic cells. Some institutions argue that they have successfully cloned human embryos although such claims are not yet proven (Ayala 8879). Genetic engineering and technologies aim at recreating human beings a process that poses an ethical dilemma despite being of high application in various medical fields such as in animal cloning. The first clone on sheep named Dolly was

    Mexicanum Life Cycle

    A. mexicanum’s life cycle is rather special, since this species exhibits neoteny, which means that it retains its larval form into adulthood and becomes fertile without going through metamorphosis (Clare 2015). In the laboratory, it is possible to induce the metamorphosis by injecting thyroxin, but the metamorphosis is lethal for the organism (Khattak et al. 2014). The life of A. mexicanum is divided in five stages. As with every amphibian, the life of A. mexicanum starts as an egg, surrounded by

Lastly, the endoderm which is the internal layer will form the lining of the gut and other internal organs such as liver and lung. In addition, Professor Lewis Wolpert who is the developmental biologist remarks that "it is not birth, marriage, or death, but gastrulation, which is truly the most important time in your life” (Wolpert, 1986). It means that gastrulation is a very important event in the

    Mike Archer, an Australian paleontologist, looked down through a microscope and saw that a single fertilised frog egg had divided in two, and so on. Eventually, the egg produced an embryo containing hundreds of cells. But this egg was special. Archer’s team had changed it with the DNA of the southern gastric brooding frog, a creature that has been extinct for more than 30 years. Archer’s goal is simple: To bring the extinct gastric brooding frog back from extinction and, provide hope for the hundreds

    Globally, scientists are turning to stem cell research as the most promising step to curing many of the harshest diseases and conditions including cancer, Alzheimer’s, stroke, paralysis and many more. Stem cells are useable as a replacement for damaged cells because of their self renewing properties. Their form allows them to act as other types of cells and regenerate as a substitute for the affected cells or as a way of testing new medications. Stroke related disabilities alone account for more
