Why Stem Cell For Treating Diseases?


Stem cells can be guided into becoming specific cells that can be used to regenerate and repair diseased or damaged tissues in people.
Stem cells may have the potential to be grown to become new tissue for use in transplant and regenerative medicine.
Another potential application of stem cells is making cells and tissues. Today, donated organs and tissues are often used to replace those that are diseased or destroyed.
Unfortunately, the number of people needing a transplant far exceeds the number of organs available for transplantation.
Autologous adult stem cells offer the possibility of a renewable source of replacement cells and tissues to treat a myriad of diseases, conditions, and disabilities including Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, spinal cord injury, burns, heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis.
