Stem Cells Therapy

Stem cells are undifferentiated, or “blank,” cells. This means they’re capable of developing into cells that serve numerous functions in different parts of the body. Most cells in the body are differentiated cells. These cells can only serve a specific purpose in a particular organ.

All humans start out as only one cell. This cell is called a zygote, or a fertilized egg. The zygote divides into two cells, then four cells, and so on. Eventually, the cells begin to differentiate, taking on a certain function in a part of the body. This process is called differentiation.

They have the ability to divide and make an indefinite number of copies of themselves. When a stem cell divides, it can either remain a stem cell or turn into a differentiated cell.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are adult stem cells isolated from different sources that can differentiate into other types of cells. In humans, these sources include; bone marrow, fat, umbilical cord tissue or amniotic fluid.

MSCs, or stromal stem cells, can differentiate into many different types of cells within the body, including:

  • Bone cells

  • Cartilage

  • Muscle cells

  • Neural cells

  • Skin cells

  • Corneal cells

 

MSCs are among the most frequently used cell types for regenerative medicine. A large number of studies have shown the beneficial effects of MSC-based therapies to treat different pathologies such as: 



 

  • Neurological disorders

  • Autoimmune diseases

  • Cardiovascular diseases

  • Liver diseases

  • Diabetes 

  • Bone and cartilage disease
