Innovations in Regenerative Medicine: The Wonders of Stem Cell Therapy
Today’s modern world has gifted us with so many advancements in science, technology, and of course, medicine; it has made possible the actualization of the concept of regenerative medicine through stem cell therapy. Stem cells, which are basically just unspecialized cells found in the embryo, umbilical cord blood, bone marrow, and—although very rarely—in some organs of the adult body, have been the subject of many studies and experiments in the advancement of medicine science throughout the years. This is because of stem cells’ ability to rapidly divide or even produce daughter stem cells with the remarkable potential to develop into different, specialized cell types in the body, going so far as to even be able to grow into tissues, organs, and bones.
Stem cell therapy in Las Vegas, NV, then, has become the next frontier in medicine—with scientists continuously improving ways in harvesting and storing stem cells, to be implanted in the specific areas of the body, which tissues or organs need repair. Because of stem cell therapy, the need—and the risk for complications—of organ implants is slowly decreasing, with more and more patients consenting and preferring the process of regeneration in curing certain diseases.
In theory, there is no limit as to the types of diseases that could be treated through regenerative medicine in Nevada, however, scientists are still studying and experimenting with stem cells, in order to fully understand its potential and further uses. Today, stem cell therapy is used as a treatment for various diseases:
Stroke, spinal cord injury, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological problems, through the stem cells’ ability to replace damaged neurons
Diabetes, by having stem cells produce the much-needed insulin
Heart attack, by using stem cells to transform and grow into heart muscle cells that could repair the damage
Orthopedic conditions, through the stem cells’ ability to produce the cells needed to repair damaged muscles and joints—subsequently relieving a patient of joint, muscle, and spinal pains
Besides the apparent health and medical benefits that it has to offer, stem cell therapy can help us in so many other ways, even just by studying how the stem cells do their work. For example, by observing and studying how stem cells develop into heart muscle cells, we could be able to know how to induce the heart muscle to repair itself after a heart attack. Stem cells could also be used to identify new drugs and screen them for possible toxic side effects.
