Descrizione

Found to be a rich depository of adult stem cells that offer therapeutic promises, the umbilical
cord blood is considered as a morally legitimate alternative source of stem cells
to cure degenerative diseases. Serious scientific and medical investigation on cord blood
has confirmed its therapeutic potential and clinical applicability eliciting aspiration that
cord blood will do much to advance regenerative medicine. To draw the line between
the legitimate and illegitimate use of cord blood-derived stem cells, this present work
offers a humble contribution when it analyses the impact of their use on human nature,
through which it ascertains which applications are morally valid or which are not.

William J. Santiago is currently the Director of the Archdiocesan Family Ministry in
the Archdiocese of Caceres, Naga City, Philippines and a Professor at the Holy Rosary
Regional Seminary in Naga City, Philippines. He obtained his Licentiate Degree in Sacred
Theology at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family
in 2007 and his Doctorate in Bioethics at the Ateneo Pontificio Regina Apostolorum in
2014.
