In theory, stem cell technology could be used to produce replaceable tissues or organs. Defective tissues/organs could be repaired using healthy cells. It would also be possible to genetically engineer stem cells to accomplish activities that they would not ordinarily be programmed to do. Part of this engineering could involve the delivery of chemotherapeutic agents for treatment of cancers and tumors.
