Plasmids are not the only cloning vectors that can be used, but they are very common.
Doctors will be able to manufacture bone, fat, connective tissue, or cartilage that matches the patients tissues exactly
This would prevent problems with silicone leaking or immune disease associated with plastic surgeryCosmetic Surgery
Yes or No?
What do you think?
Nonmaleficence (Doing No Harm)
Beneficence (Doing Good)
Risk factors involved
Mother/Surrogate, even Clone
High percentage of animal clones have not implanted or gestated due to genetic abnormalities
Reports of congenital malformation
To date 5% of cloned animals live births
Billings has also said that stem cell therapies have been “wildly oversold”
Copying an aged cell (Dolly)
Dolly developed arthritis very early on
Cells being cloned may develop genetic mutations very early on
Recessive traits critical to evolution
Allele extinction can occur
Lack of alleles mean less diversity
