Your body’s stem cells are the cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated. Under the ideal conditions present either in the body itself or in a lab, stem cells divide and form daughter cells, which can either become new stem cells (self-renewal) or other specialized cells (differentiation).
Stem cells are unique because no other cells in your body are capable of generating new cell types. That’s why researchers are so interested in their potential.
What Is Stem Cell Therapy (Regenerative Medicine) and How Does It Work?
Stem cell therapy, also referred to as regenerative medicine, has been at the forefront of the news lately. Because the use of stem cells promotes the repair of diseased, dysfunctional, or injured body tissue, it’s believed to be the next chapter in organ transplants. Many scientists promote using stem cells instead of donor organs, which are often limited in their supply.
Stem cells are now being grown in labs and manipulated to specialize into specific types of cells, including blood cells, heart muscle cells, and nerve cells, which can then be transplanted into a human being. For example, healthy heart muscle cells could be transplanted into an individual with heart disease to repair his or her defective heart muscle without the individual having to wait for a heart transplant.
