DescriptionStend cell therapy is the application of stem cells directly to a patient’s skin to repair or prevent some illness or disease. Since 2021, the only known treatment with stem cells is peritoneal stem cell transplantation. This requires the bone marrow of the patient to be harvested and used to make an exact replica of the patient’s own stem cells. This usually takes the form of an umbilical stem-cell transplant, but stem cells can also be made from umbilical blood. It is unknown yet if other stem cell types or sources will be able to be used in this treatment.Feel free to find more information at San Antonio stem cell therapy.
Stem cells are the body’s master cells, being responsible for many of the functions that our bodies perform. They are also unique because they reproduce and divide without any damage. However, chronic diseases, like cancer and leukemia, and even injury, disease, or trauma can cause the number of stem cell units in the bone marrow to deplete. As a result, it becomes more difficult to replenish these cells, and the overall health and quality of life of the person suffering from these ailments can suffer. For this reason, many scientists and researchers have been working hard to find alternative ways to replace these cells.
One way that stem cell therapy has been used to replace damaged or dying tissue is with the use of autologous fat transfer. In this case, the fat that is taken from a healthy person and transferred to a patient who has a severe chronic disease, like an autoimmune disease, may help to restore the health of the tissue involved. In addition, tissue from a donor area may also be used to help regenerate the tissue. This type of regenerative medicine is still in its early days, and researchers are hopeful that new and improved methods will be developed in the years to come.
