Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide to produce more cells. In a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all specialized cells but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs, such as blood, skin or intestinal tissues.
There are three known accessible sources of adult stem cells in humans: bone marrow, adipose tissue and blood, every one of those three require a different method of extraction.
Stem cells can also be taken from umbilical cord blood immediately after birth – they are called extra-embryonic fetal stem cells.
Embryonic stem cells are taken from embryos in early stages of development, mostly from aborted fetuses. Because of the controversy regarding the moral and ethical use of those cells, there are currently no approved treatments using embryonic stem cells.

The capacity to differentiate into specialized cell types
The most widely used stem-cell therapy is bone marrow transplant, autologous or from a donor. For more than 30years, bone marrow transplant has been used to treat cancer patients with leukemia and lymphoma. Other sources of stem cells include fat, legally aborted fetuses and placenta.
