Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell - Safety For Regenerative Medicine
... The major concern with the potential clinical application of iPSCs is their propensity to form tumors ... Much the same as ESC, iPSCs readily form teratoma when injected into immunodeficient mice ... Since iPSCs can only be produced with high efficiency at this time using modifications, they are generally predicted to be less safe and more tumorigenic than hESC ...
Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell - Identity
... The generated iPSCs were remarkably similar to naturally-isolated pluripotent stem cells (such as mouse and human embryonic stem cells, mESCs and hESCs, respectively) in the following respects, thus ... Colonies of iPSCs were also similar to that of ESCs ... Human iPSCs formed sharp-edged, flat, tightly-packed colonies similar to hESCs and mouse iPSCs formed the colonies similar to mESCs, less flat and more aggregated colonies than that of hESCs ...
