Introduction

Already fully differentiated adult cells can be reprogrammed into pluripotent cells in defined conditions. Reprogrammed cells are called induced pluripotent stem cells, iPS cells, and they can be differentiated into desired cell type, retaining the original genotype. With this technology, it is possible to create patient specific stem cell lines, which provide a way to model and study the pathophysiology of various disorders in human cells. Therefore, iPS cell technology offers a promising and safe platform to screen and optimize patient specific drug therapy.
