Applications of stem cells
The goal of any stem cell therapy is to repair a damaged tissue that can’t heal itself. Ongoing research on stem cell therapies gives hope to patients who would normally not receive treatment to cure their disease but just to alleviate the symptoms of their chronic illness. Stem cell therapies involve more than simply transplanting cells into the body and directing them to grow new, healthy tissue. It may also possible to coax stem cells already in the body to work overtime and produce new tissue.
