Abstract

Worldwide, the issue of stem cell research has recently bursted in the scientific scene, because stem cells seem to offer great promise for new ways of treating disease. The purpose of this study is to explore current status of stem cell research, published in Korean literature. Using web search(KoreaMed*: www.koreamed.org), we reviewed 190 articles which had been published in Korean literatures from January 2007 to May 2009. Articles were classified in terms of subject, stem cells types, methodology, author's specialty and organization, and journal name. The articles published in Korean literature were diverse, meaningful and updated. Furthermore, 8 articles regarding clinical trial for patients were cited in English literature. We were able to overview a recent trend in the stem cell research, published in Korean literature. (*KoreaMed is established by the Korean Association of Medical Journal Editors(KAMJE) with support by Korean Academy of Medical Science, Health Technology Planning and Evaluation Board to have easy access to Korean Medical Journals.)
