Stem cell therapy is the process of using stem cells from healthy tissue to treat or even prevent a certain disease or condition. In recent years, this has been the main focus of medical science. Currently, the only known therapy using stem cells as of now is hematopoieticular stem cell transplantation. This normally takes the form of an adult bone marrow transplant, however the stem cells may also be obtained from umbilical cord blood as well. Checkout Greenville Stem Cell Therapy.
Stem cell therapy has helped patients who were suffering from different types of cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma. The researchers have found that when the stem cells are injected into the areas affected by the disease, it had the ability to kill cancerous cells in the area. It was also discovered that the therapy was effective for patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease. Scientists and researchers are currently working on finding better ways to deliver the cells.
As time passes and more advances are made, stem cells from other sources will soon be introduced into stem cell therapy treatments. Experts believe that the first successful stem cell therapy application will come from umbilical cord tissue. The main factor for this is that cord stem cells are contained in the largest number of bones in the human body. They are also easily obtainable and do not require surgery. Other possible sources for stem cells include bone marrow, lung, kidney, heart and liver cells.
