What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are unspecialized cells of the body with the potential of self-renewal and differentiation. Our body starts with totipotent cells, growing up to three layers (endo, ecto, and mesoderm) having pluripotent stem cells. As an adult, the body has reserves of multipotent and unipotent stem cells.
Why Are Stem Cells Getting Attention?
- Increased understanding of diseases by studying stem cells and their maturation.
- Stem cells can be programmed to differentiate into specific cells for tissue-specific regeneration.
- Many patients with diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoarthritis, autism, etc. have seen improvements with stem cell therapy approaches.
- Stem cells have the potential to grown tissues for transplants in regenerative medicine.
- Drug safety testing research can use stem cells in 3D culture models.
What Is Stem Cell Treatment And How Does It Work?
Stem cell therapy or stem cell treatment promotes repair response of injured tissues by using stem cells or regenerative derivatives of the stem cells like growth factors etc. Stem cell treatment is safe and effective and many doctors are quickly taking up stem cell therapy as alternative medicine during early intervention. Doctors generally use three main sources of stem cells for therapy: adipose tissue, bone marrow, and umbilical cord blood. Stem cells are extracted from these tissues and characterized before sorting. Researchers grow stem cells in optimized lab settings and these cells are programmed or manipulated into specific body cells like muscles, nerve cells, bone cells, etc. These specialized autologous stem cells can be implanted in a person or at times, mesenchymal stem cells or hematopoietic stem cells can be transfused in the patient with derivates for treatment. Cell regeneration therapy has been used previously in blood disorders but in recent times, advanced cell therapy is used for arthritis, diabetes, anti-aging, and neuro-disorders. Several disorders of degenerative nature do not have a cure or at least their conventional treatment methods only hint at curing the symptoms rather than target the underlying degeneration. Therefore, stem cell therapy comes up as a silver lining for these disorders as they limit the disease progression naturally besides promoting repair of the tissue damage, hinting at damage reversal.
