Gr. 9-12. The science and technology are detailed, dense, accurate, and up-to-date in this title in the New Biology series, and the readable discussion of the ethical issues shows that there are no simple answers. Physiologist Panno explains how stem cells can be used to treat, and possibly cure, a wide variety of diseases, and he predicts that the use of adult stem cells will soon be routine. An important chapter looks at legal practices in the U.S., Europe, and the U.K. The book includes occasional diagrams; an extensive, detailed glossary; and many bibliographical references to science and ethical discussions in print and on the Web. In addition, there is a chapter summarizing cell biology and recombinant DNA technology. A carefully done, in-depth series that will work well for researchers and debaters, adults as well as teens. Other titles in this new series: The Cell, Aging, Animal Cloning, Cancer, and Gene Therapy. Hazel Rochman Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
