What Are Stem Cells?
Tissue-specific stem cells (“adult” or “somatic” stem cells), are already specialized and can produce different cell types for the specific tissue or organ in which they reside.
Stem cell research is the most exciting option in the field of regenerative medicine being tested for efficacy in treating a variety of health issues where the body’s own response to traditional treatment isn’t sufficient to restore health and optimum function.
Stem cell application in clinical trials shows promising results in therapy of neurological, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. Stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine are becoming the preferred substitutes for many surgical, pharmacological, and rehabilitative medical services.
