Embryonic stem cells can be maintained in their undifferentiated state over long periods in culture. They are pluripotent, able to form all the cell types of the body. These two findings open the way for the expansion and differentiation of embryonic stem cells for use in therapeutic transplantation for a myriad of diseases. Here we look at the hurdles that must be overcome for them to reach their potential use in the clinical arena
