Stem cell therapy is the application of stem cells directly to the afflicted area to treat or even prevent a certain disease or medical condition. As of late, the only known therapy with stem cells is direct hematopoieticular stem cell transplantation from an umbilical cord donor. This normally takes the form of an abdominal bone marrow transplant, but stem cells can also be obtained from umbilical cord plasma. Although stem cells obtained from sources other than bone marrow are less commonly used in modern medicine, they have become an important part of many modern treatments.Feel free to find more information at Mount Pleasant stem cell therapy.
There are now three types of specialized cells: bone marrow, adult stem cells, and umbilical stem cells. These stem cell lines are specially harvested from the bone marrow, a rich repository of stem cells that has been carefully cultivated and directed towards the particular condition being treated. Because of the specific way in which they are taken, there are specific protocols for their administration. Because of the high cost of stem cell therapy, it is often requested by many doctors and health care centers to treat specific illnesses and conditions. There are some adult stem cells and adult stem cell therapy companies that cater to niche requests for specific disorders, so it is best to ask your doctor what type of stem cell line you may need to use.
One of the unique benefits of stem cells obtained from embryos or pregnant mothers is that they can actually be used for treating different types of diseases and conditions. Stem cell therapy was actually approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in 1998. Since then, there have been a variety of successful research and clinical trials using adult stem cells for a variety of different medical conditions. For instance, adult stem cells were found to be effective in helping patients with severe burns, heart disease, strokes, liver disease, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis and even Alzheimer’s disease. With the new discoveries and success of stem cell therapy, there is no doubt that this unique medical procedure will continue to help many people in the future.
