Another potential application of human stem cells is to recognize side effects of drugs

Biological therapy is a form of treatment that uses biological materials such as antibodies and stem cells. Several biological therapies, including monoclonal antibodies, are now well established as part of the treatment for many diseases such as cancer, transplant rejection, autoimmune disorders, and infections. Personalized medicine is now a key emerging technology in drug development. However, they can cause adverse side effects in humans. Therefore, biologic therapies require the use of human tissue-based bioassays to measures the efficacy and safety of the drug.

Convalescent plasma therapy could be an effective treatment to fight against the Ebola virus

The Ebola virus causes a serious and deadly disease transmitted by animals and humans. The current Ebola epidemic is the largest outbreak in history, affecting many countries in West Africa. The Ebola virus likely originated in African fruit bats, but apart from zoonotic transmission it can also be transmitted from one human to another via direct contact such as through broken skin or mucous membranes, bodily secretions or fluids, or by contact with surfaces and materials (e.g. bedding, clothing) contaminated with these fluids. So far, no FDA-approved vaccine or medicine is available to treat Ebola infection. Only a few primary prevention measures are available which are largely based on symptomatic treatment and by avoiding direct contact with infected people and animals.
