Also referred to as “regenerative medicine,” stem cell therapy is an innovative treatment approach designed to restore organ and/or tissue functioning in patients with chronic disease or severe injuries. These patients’ bodies may be otherwise unable to regenerate tissue to restore functionality. Stem cell therapy makes this possible.
Stem cells have the unique potential to grow into various types of cells, such as brain cells or blood cells. They also function to repair various bodily systems by dividing and multiplying abundantly to replace other worn-out or damaged cells. In the lab, these cells are manipulated to develop into a range of specific cell types depending on the specific needs of a patient.
Stem cell therapy has the potential to treat a variety of disease and injuries that previously had poor prognoses. The special qualities of these cells enable them to regenerate into virtually any type of cell to replace those that have been damaged as a result of congenital defects, aging, or disease. By doing so, these organs and structures are repaired, renewed, and restored to proper functioning. Research shows that stem cell therapy has the potential to treat millions of people in the United States who are suffering from chronic disease and serious injuries.
