MADRIZ DE HAAN, Pedro. Células Madre: Fuentes no embriónicas accesibles. Med. leg. Costa Rica [online]. 2010, vol.27, n.2, pp.35-46. ISSN 2215-5287.

In the past few years the angle in which stem cells are being evaluated has changed greatly from the way it was before, these are no longer just a distant possibility, they have become a real alternative for the treatment of several diseases, more importantly in the case of auto-immune diseases. The methods of obtaining the cells should not be a reason of controversy in our country; because it is possible to get the cells from two particularly and accessible sources: 1) umbilical cord and 2) adipose tissue.

Keywords : Stem cell; auto-inmune diseases; human embriens; umbilical cord; adipose tissue.
