The Future of Stem Cells

Stem Cells:
These are undifferentiated biological cells which have self-renewal property and can remodel into any kind of specialized cells including liver, neurons, hearing, skin, lung etc. They have the ability to divide further to produce more stem cells. In children and young adults, stem cells are present in large quantities and act as an inherent repair system. They are injected at the site of inflammation or damage to rebuild normal function. Stem cell research brings a remarkable hope for treatment of minor to incurable diseases.

Stem cell treatment can treat a number of diseases including:

  • Parkinson’s Alzheimer’s and Crohn’s disease
  • Diabetes
  • Rheumatoid and Osteoarthritis arthritis
  • Muscular sclerosis
  • Liver, kidney and lung disorders
  • Stroke and heart conditions
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Prostate disorders
  • Allergies
  • Rotator cuff tears and sports injuries
  • Fibromyalgia and fatigue
  • Natural hips and knees joint reconstruction
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Chronic hepatitis
  • Neurological and retinal disorders
  • Cancer

Stem cells are used for clinical applications like stem cell transplants, tissue regeneration, and cellular therapies.

Discovery of New Drugs
Research on stem cell technology is growing rapidly. The most interesting work on stem cells is still waiting to be published. It is not an ordinary treatment that involves the use of an external agent. Stem cells are the repair kits of our bodies. Animal trials showed restored sight after retinal damage. Many physicians, researchers, and patients believe that stem cell treatments are the future of medicine. Stem cells have the capability to replace drugs in future. Researchers say that stem cells are more flexible and powerful than our imaginations, that cells can even duplicate inside patients. Stem cells offer exceptional opportunities to cultivate new medical treatment for incapacitating diseases and a new method to analyze biology’s important questions.

Stem cell treatment is a developing field of medicine which shown auspicious responses through various clinical trials. There are many cases where stem cells save the patients suffering from various medical conditions. Researchers have discovered the clinical potential of stem cells in the treatment of various immunologic, neurodegenerative, genetic and blood-related conditions. Stem cell treatment can be the future of medicine because of the personalized healing and regenerative effects. Stem cell therapy has brought a new approach to regenerative medicine and changed the outlook of the field of medicine. This cutting-edge treatment will be a bright future for the medical conditions which currently don’t have successful standard treatments.

Summary

The future of medicine, future of aging, future of the pharmaceutical industry and the future of health care are extremely accelerated by stem cell research. In the future, stem cells will provide very effective and low-cost treatment for many serious diseases and other health problems. Most animal stem cell studies and clinical trials are very encouraging. Stem cell therapy has not been approved yet because there are not enough research and clinical studies to prove its efficiency. However, various clinical studies and trials are going on currently across the world. In few years, ongoing clinical trials results will provide the clarity about the effectiveness of stem cells for treating various medical conditions. Then we can call the stem cells the future of medicine with all approval.
