In today’s time, stem cells are one of the most fascinating field in science, with breakthroughs being announced almost every day either in scientific journal or in media. With rising R&D, stem cells are offering much hope to patients suffering with debilitating diseases for which there is no cure. Before we dig into where this stem cell research is trending or how these stem cells are going to change the treatment modality, we understand what actually stem cells are.

Here are few stem cell stories indicating incredible potential of stem cells

Stem cell treatment helps in reversing age-related sight loss

Scientists in the UK have reported the results of pioneering operations in 2 patients with age-related macular degeneration, a major cause of sight loss in older people. Researchers used a stem cell patch to repair the damaged membrane at the back of the eye called the retinal pigment epithelium. After a year, both patients were able to read again with glasses from the affected eye. The exciting findings show a potential new treatment for a condition that causes sight loss, and even blindness, in many older people.

Stem Cell Therapy seen to improve motor function in 4-Year-Old Cerebral Palsy patient

A South African girl named Thermishaa Soma showed signs of poor development and activity at 11 months and diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She showed no improvement after standard therapy, leading to a quest for experimental therapies, including stem cell therapy. After stem cell treatment at Advancells, she showed improved motor function, including being able to open her hands widely and attempt to sit on her own. Her muscles were more relaxed, and her visual ability is believed to have slightly improved as well.

Paralyzed man regains use of arms and hands after receiving stem cell therapy

A 20-year old Kris Bosen of Bakersfield suffered a terrible car accident leaving him permanently paralyzed from the neck down. Bosen then participated in “Experimental Stem Cell Therapy”. The experimental trial has led to Bosen regaining feeling in his arms and hands after just two weeks and after three months, he was able to feed himself, use his cell phone and even hug his family again.

In conclusion, with the rising R&D initiatives, medical researchers anticipate that stem cells in near future will shift the treatment modality of disease and change life in a better way.  However the stem cell research is at nascent stage, long term clinical trials are needed to be sure it’s safe and effective.
