Abstract:

Stem cell research has been extensively explored worldwide to enhance human health. Nevertheless, there is currently no full understanding of the perception toward stem cell research among veterinarians in India. This study aimed to assess the perception toward stem cell research, and associated factors with, among at Lala Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Hisar students as well as scientists. Perception in this study was conceptualized as positive or negative inclination towards acceptance of stem cell research. A schedule containing 27 statements was used to assess the perception of respondents about xenotransplantation. Mean score of all the respondents was 62.47 indicating a strongly favourable perception about stem cell research. Further, more than half of respondents of were having favourable perception. The remaining respondents exhibited strongly favourable perception about stem cell research. Age, gender educational qualification, belief in animal mind, agreeableness conscientiousness was found significantly associated with the perception about stem cell research.
