When most people think about about stem cells treating disease they think of a stem cell transplant.
In a stem cell transplant, stem cells are first specialized into the necessary adult cell type. Then, those mature cells replace tissue that is damaged by disease or injury. This type of treatment could be used to:
But stem cell-based therapies can do much more.
Any of these would have a significant impact on human health without transplanting a single cell.
There are several sources of stem cells:
This research has led to early-stage clinical trials to test usefulness and safety in people. For example, adult stem cells are currently being tested in people with neurological or heart disease.
Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. It is the next chapter in organ transplantation and uses cells instead of donor organs, which are limited in supply.
Researchers grow stem cells in a lab. These stem cells are manipulated to specialize into specific types of cells, such as heart muscle cells, blood cells or nerve cells.
The specialized cells can then be implanted into a person. For example, if the person has heart disease, the cells could be injected into the heart muscle. The healthy transplanted heart muscle cells could then contribute to repairing the injured heart muscle.
Researchers have already shown that adult bone marrow cells guided to become heart-like cells can repair heart tissue in people, and more research is ongoing.
Stem cell therapies can have many benefits in the treatment of muscle injuries. In many cases, they can improve the patient’s mobility, having direct positive consequences on their quality of life.

The goal of regenerative medicine is to repair organs or tissues that are damaged by disease, aging or trauma, such that function is restored, or at least improved.
Adult and embryonic stem cells differ in the type of cells that they can develop into embryonic stem cells can become all cell types of the body (they are pluripotent). Adult stem cells are found in mature tissues (bone marrow, skin, brain, etc.) and give rise to other cell types from their tissue or origin (they are multipotent). For example, adult blood stem cells give rise to red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
Stem cell treatment has become a revolutionary model of health treatment.
However, it can be costly.
Hence, people look for quality and affordable stem cell therapy.
