Stem cell Research and Therapy
Stem cell therapyAbout Stem Cells Stem cell delivery methods Adverse reactions Rehabilitation Therapy disclaimer About Stem Cells Most cells in the body have a specific function in particular organs, such as the liver, skin or brain. Stem cells are relatively undifferentiated and have the ability to develop into different types of cells to exert specialised functions. Among stem cell’s most notable characteristic is its ability to proliferate into a completely new, normal, and even younger cell. As a result, people can use their autologous or allogenic stem cells, or stem cell derived tissues or organs, to replace ill or aging tissues or organs, thus, enabling stem cell research as well as treatments for a wide range of diseases and injuries, many of which cannot be treated with traditional medical methods. For instance, stem cell therapy for diabetes is one of many such scenarios. In addition to proliferating new cells and providing cell replacement via stem cell science, an important function of mesenchymal or tissue stem cells is to provide the body with other cell factors in a paracrine manner. These cell factors help in the following functions:
