is known to have the potential to help certain health conditions.
How close are we, really, to curing diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases? Today, pharmaceutical drugs and medication can only do so much. Treatment can only help delay conditions from worsening but often lack of recovering or cure.
It’s coming to light that researches have shown that the answer lies with Stem Cell and is poised to become the next medical revolution and produce potentially lifesaving results.
Stem cell is essentially the building block of the human body.
Stem cells are capable of dividing for a long period of time, are unspecialized, but can develop into specialized cells.
The earliest stem cells in the human body are those found in the human embryo. The stem cells inside an embryo will eventually give rise to every cell, tissue and organ in the fetus’s body.
Unlike a regular cell, which can only replicate to create more of its own kind of cell, a stem cell is pluripotent. When it divides, it can make any one of the over 220 different cells in the human body.
Stem cells also have the capability to self-renew — they can reproduce themselves many times over.
The recent discovery of Stem Cells not only represents a major breakthrough in medical technology, it also changes the way we view modern medicine.
New and current Regenerative Medicine can use stem cells to create living and functional tissues to regenerate and repair tissue and organs in the body that are damaged due to age, disease and congenital defects. Stem cells have the power to go to these damaged areas and regenerate new cells and tissues by performing a repair and a renewal process, restoring functionality. Regenerative medicine has the potential to provide a cure to failing or impaired tissues.
