Title: Can we really use the stem cells?


1
Can We Really Use the Stem Cells?
  • Stem cell preservation companies, how to preserve
    umbilical cord

2
Can We Really Use the Stem Cells?
  • Stem cells are not specialized.
  • There is no specialization in stem cells.
  • A stem cell has no specialized physiological
    properties, unlike a red blood cell that carries
    oxygen through the blood stream, or a muscle cell
    that works with other cells to produce movement.

3
Can We Really Use the Stem Cells?
  • Stem cells can repeatedly divide and produce
    identical copies of them. This process is called
    self-renewal and goes on throughout the
    organism's life.
  • The defining property of stem cells is
    self-renewal. Specialized cells like blood and
    muscle usually do not replicate themselves, which
    means that they cannot replace themselves when
    they are seriously damaged by disease or injury.

Can We Really Use the Stem Cells?
  • There are many types of uses but here you will
    come to know about an autistic boy who gets cured
    with the help of stem cell therapy.
  • Brit Danny Bullen, lives with his parents in
    Tenerife was suffering from autism and was unable
    to do his daily tasks such as eating, using the
    toilet and many others.
  • Also he was completely on a gluten and lactose
    free diet that helps in improving various types
    of autoimmune disorders.

Can We Really Use the Stem Cells?
  • He had a stem cell transplant surgery in the US
    and after the surgery for the first time he asked
    for food.
  • His father said that after his treatment he has
    started to responding, is more alert than earlier
    and has started using a few wards to speak.
  • Write down anything you want. Then press the
    Quill It button on the right to paraphrase it.

Can We Really Use the Stem Cells?
  • While therapy, some diets, and other techniques
    are all promising to mitigate the effects of
    autism (and some of them swear), researchers have
    not yet come up with a "cure" for the disease.
  • That is, a definitive treatment that relieves
    adults or children from the condition can not be
    offered by the scientific and medical community.

Can We Really Use the Stem Cells?
  • With emerging stem cell therapies, however, it
    looks as if autism can be on the horizon as a
    real, lasting treatment.
  • Whatever the case, stem cells seem to be a
    promising autism treatment. They can replace
    malfunctioning gut cells with healthy ones, for
    example, and since stem cells can replicate
    indefinitely, it is unlikely that the problem
    will recur.
  • The same can be true for the production of brain
    cells, enzymes and hormones, and more.

Can We Really Use the Stem Cells?
  • Stem cell autism recovery, as with any other
    medical process, brings with it some risks.
    However, on the whole, many people find the
    levels of success high enough to warrant these
    negative outcomes to be risky.
  • It may be worth it, especially in cases where
    autism is so overwhelming that it thoroughly
    affects the family or the child. So they want to
    use stem cells for the process of
    transplantation.
