Stem Cell Therapy is not a new idea, in fact the technology has been around for years. Stem cells can be used to fight anything from aging to cancer. The technology introduces new, adult cells into the damaged tissue to repair the damage caused by disease or injury. Most notable of the stem cell therapy is the bone-marrow transplantation, used in the treatment of cancer and other life-threatening diseases. However, as research shows, stem cells replacement therapy is now being used to fight ailments that previously had no cure, such as arthritis, Huntington’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease and Coeliac Disease, among others.
Stem cells are defined as totipotent progenitor cells capable of self-renewal and multi-lineage differentiation. These stem cells survive well and show steady division in culture which then causes them the ideal targets for vitro manipulation. The ability of tissue stem cells to assimilate into the tissue under the control of the host and developmental cues, makes them ideal for cell replacement therapy. Experimentation has proved effective with the stem cell therapy in numerous case studies and scientists and medical practitioners around the globe are getting excited. Stem cell regeneration could pave the way for a future free of pain and suffering from diseases we previously couldn’t handle.
There are many different types of stem cells that come from different places in the body or are formed at different times in our lives, this means that there are various stem cell replacement therapies to coincide with these different types. The stem cell types include embryonic stem cells that exist only at the earliest stages of development and various types of ‘tissue-specific’ or ‘adult’ stem cells that appear during fetal development and remain in our bodies throughout life. Treatment using stem cells involve many of these different types, however, the most common is the ‘adult’ stem cell. This is a regenerative stem cell therapy and involves injections of the adult cells to the area that is causing the pain or damage. These adult stem cells then move to repair the damage and restore the body to its normal state of being.
The stem cell treatments that are being offered across the board are assisting the medical industry to develop increasingly new technologies to help patients and sufferers of multiple ailments. These treatments have been proven to be successful and we can all look to a brighter future with the current stem cell technology and the technology that is still continuously being developed. A future that is as exciting as it is healthy.
