While Science has a lot of definitions and complicated explanations about cells and the types of cells let’s talk about “Stem cells” in an easier way as possible. So what exactly is “Stem cells”, it is a type of cells which can bond with any other cells in our body, starting from the muscles cells to the brain cells. In other words, we can say, it is a type of cell that has the ability to develop into many different cell types. This cell, in particular, is very interesting because it has the potential to repair any type of damages in our body. Now, where can we get stem cells from? Well, the stem cells are in our whole body and it can be obtained from donor’s bone marrow, humans blood, umbilical cord blood, adult body tissues, embryos, liver, etc.
Tissue regeneration is probably the most important use of Stem cells. Stem cells can change the whole world once the scientist and other experts find a way to unlock the full capacity and use of Stem cells. As of right now, Stem cell already has a huge impact on Medical fields and it can already cure many incurable diseases and repair any damaged cells within our body. Stem cells are already being used for diseases such as brain diseases, cardiovascular diseases, blood disease treatment, spinal cord injury, burns, diabetes, etc. where many of the diseases mentioned above are really difficult to cure. We might be able to treat many more diseases in the coming future. Stem cell research has a strict law and is prohibited around the world because the research requires a human host and often it leads to the risk of injury or even death in some cases. But, let’s hope in the coming future there will be an easier and more efficient way to put Stem cells into uses.
