It’s no secret that stem cells are revolutionizing the healthcare field. Stem cell research is so exciting because it encourages the idea that there may be relief to those suffering from autoimmune diseases. Stem cell research gives us the hope that we can live fully without fear of age-related degenerative diseases. Maybe we even have a future with decreased pain and inflammation, or quicker healing and recovery. Because of its ability to differentiate into a number of types of cells, stem cells are being studied in regenerative medicine, orthopedic medicine, cardiology, dermatology, dentistry, and any other medical sector you can image.
Stem cells are the building blocks of life. Scientists have discovered that stem cells can differentiate into a number of different cell types, as well as receive and react to signals from different areas of the body. Due to the amazing capabilities of these cells, ongoing research is aimed at providing stem cell treatments for many diseases, disorders, and conditions, such as:
• Birth defects
• Heart conditions
• Kidney Disease
• Vision impairment
While stem cell research is relatively new, and these therapies are in early developmental stages, the use of stem cells in the U.S. to treat diseases and diagnoses has not yet been approved by the FDA. However, the field of regenerative medicine is quickly growing, and we may reap the benefits of these incredible cells sooner than we think.
