What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells can be viewed as master cells that can give rise to all types of cells in the body. Generally, stem cells are classified as unipotent, multi-potent or pluripotent according to their potential to differentiate. Stem cells can also be classified based on their source, for example, embryonic stem cells, foetal stem cells and adult stem cells.
Stem cells differ from other kinds of cells in the body. They are special because of their ability to self-renew, duplicate, regenerate and repair.


Stem cells have two important properties:

  • Capable of giving rise to all types of cells
  • Capable of self-renewing indefinitely

Is Stem Cell Therapy Legal in Malaysia?

Haemopoietic stem cell and umbilical cord stem cell transplantations are the most established form of stem cell therapy. The use of other stem cells including hES (human embryonic stem cells) and somatic stem cells is considered experimental. Xenotransplantation or stem cell therapies involving the use of animal stem cells or animal cells are currently prohibited in Malaysia (Source: MALAYSIAN GUIDELINES FOR STEM CELL RESEARCH AND THERAPY 2009).

Based on face-to-face interviews with selected Malaysian ethicists, scientists and policymakers, the objectives and effectiveness of the current Guideline for Stem Cell Research and Therapy (2009) are examined. The study's findings (published in 2020) show that the guideline is rather ineffective in ensuring good ethical governance of the technology.

Guidelines for cell and gene therapy products (CGTPs) issued by the Health Ministry will be enforced from 2021, says Dr Lee Boon Chye (Deputy Health Minister).
