Stem cell treatments represent a revolutionary and exciting new approach to managing many diseases and conditions in humans and animals. They have the potential to radically change the way we view medical conditions once considered untreatable or difficult to treat. Potential uses are wide and varied, and include treatment of head and spinal cord injuries, diabetes, cancer, heart damage,
arthritis, missing teeth, blindness, deafness, Parkinson’s disease, infertility, non healing bone fractures and baldness (yay!).
So what are stem cells? Stem cells are a primitive type of cell that have the ability to transform into specialised cells that are found in tissues such as nervous tissue, bone, cartilage and ligament. In fact, they have the potential to transform into any tissue found in the body. The significance of this is that specific cells can be produced to repair damaged or diseased tissue, such as spinal cord, heart, bone and cartilage. Full Article - Click Here
