Stem cell  has become a main focus for not only reseacrhers but also society due to its potency in cell-based therapy. Regardless ethical issues surrounding the human embryonic stem cell, adult human stem cell became the alternative of choice for transplantation. In the an effort to minimize ethical problems of human embryonic stem cell transplantation, many breaktroughs have been conducted, like ANT (Altered Nuclear Transfer) and iPS (Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell). Development of stem cell technology  in producing testing model will assist a lot in potential drug testing, which might decrease potential side effect and numbers of human clinical trial.
