Human embryonic progenitor cells are intermediate in the developmental process between embryonic stem cells and fully differentiated cells. The cells may possess the ability to become a wide array of cell types with potential applications in research, drug discovery, and potential novel regenerative stem cell therapies. The cells are relatively easy to manufacture on a large scale and in a purified state, which may make it advantageous to work with these cells compared to the direct use of human embryonic stem cells.
