Stem Cell research and Therapy

Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that undergo mitosis to produce more cells, which are found in multicellular organisms. They are of two types, embryonic and adult stem cells. The stem cell treatment was found to be a lifesaving treatment for the patients with solid tumors and blood disorders. Stem cells can be obtained from the umbilical cord after baby’s birth. Possibly they can also be obtained from peripheral blood and bone marrow. According to the reports, in US the availability of stem cell therapy was $15.2 million in 2007 and $16.5 million in 2008 and it is estimated to reach $11 billion by 2020.

Stem cell therapy is the way of using stem cells for treating as well as preventing any disease or disorder. Bone marrow transplantation is the most widely used stem cell therapy, but some stem cell treatment using umbilical cord bloods are also in practice.
