The field of stem cell biology is mushrooming with many investigations centered on a multitude of prospective applications in regenerative medicine including Stem cell therapy for neurodegenerative disorders. Recent advances in stem cell research have highlighted the role played by such cells and their environment; the stem cell niche in tissue renewal and homeostasis. The control and regulation of stem cells and their niche are remaining challenges for cell therapy and regenerative medicine on several tissues and organs. These recent advances are important for both, the basic knowledge of stem cell regulation, and their practical applications into clinical medicine to aid in effective treatment of certain diseases that have maimed the human population worldwide for all the past years. researchers having found how important the stem cells are in controlling diseases are still working to find out other clinical applications of the stem cell therapy so as to avail better alternative to treatment of these diseases. The researchers are discussing on the need for a deeper understanding of the identity of this stem cells and its microenvironment in order to improve the effectiveness of any cell therapy for regenerative medicine.
The greatest area at which the researchers have done lots of work and held many discussions is whether the stem cell therapy can be effective in regenerative therapy by replacing and repairing damaged cells and tissues by diseases. with the latest on this subject, it can be believed that this is a challenge that is already won as researchers have now certified that the stem cell therapy helps in replacing and repairing the damaged cells therefore a clever way of fighting diseases in a less risky manner since there are few (if any) side effects that are associated with the stem cell therapy.
The stem cells have been noted for their unique features. The stem cells unlike other cells are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods. They are unspecialized and they can give rise to specialized cell types. Stem cells are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods. Unlike muscle cells, blood cells, or nerve cells which do not normally replicate themselves, stem cells may replicate many times, or proliferate. A starting population of stem cells that proliferates for many months in the laboratory can yield millions of cells. If the resulting cells continue to be unspecialized, like the parent stem cells, the cells are said to be capable of long-term self-renewal. Due to these distinct scientists are involved in many investigations centered on a multitude of prospective applications of the stem cell therapy in regenerative medicine including Stem cell therapy for neurodegenerative disorders.
Stem cell therapy basically refers to the use of the stem cell to treat certain conditions. Stem cell therapy has become a vital part of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine is an emerging branch of medicine with the goal of restoring organ and tissue function for patients with serious injuries or chronic disease in which the body’s own responses are not sufficient enough to restore functional tissue. A growing crisis in organ transplantation and an aging population have driven a search for new and alternative therapies. In regenerative medicine the stem cells can be used to create living and functional tissues to regenerate and repair tissue and organs in the body that are damaged due to age, disease and congenital defects. Stem cells have the power to go to these damaged areas and regenerate new cells and tissues by performing a repair and a renewal process, restoring functionality. The use of the stem cells in the regenerative medicine will help in treating diseases that result in degeneration of cells and tissues.
The stem cell therapy involves transplanting healthy stem cells into the parts of the body that are adversely affected by diseases. These stem cells will then replace the damaged cells and give rise to millions of healthy cells hence hastening the process of recovery. The stem cell therapy is so far the best treatment in this century for neurodegenerative disorders.
- Blindness and vision impairment
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
- Graft vs. host disease and Cohn’s disease
- Neural and behavioral birth defects
- Wound healing
- Brain damage
- Spinal cord injury
- Heart damage
- Haematopoiesis (blood cell formation)
With the breakthrough in this of study we will expect that treatment of diseases will be more convenient, effective and even affordable. This new intervention in the regenerative medicine is light at the end of the tunnel to patients suffering from neurodegenerative disorders. It is a treatment that tackles diseases at their roots and it also has no side effects.
