Title: Some Hidden Things About Stem Cell Therapy

Some Hidden Things About Stem Cell Therapy
2
Clinical Trials for Stem Cells
  • Stem cells can help us in treating various types
    of diseases as well as various other kinds of
    health disorders. They are proved to be used as
    the blood stem cells for treating blood-related
    diseases such as leukaemia. 
  • Clinical trials are helping the researchers to
    find that the stem cells are under the process
    which will help to explore new treatments by
    using stem cells.

Clinical Trials for Stem Cells
  • There are a lot of things about the stem cells
    which are yet to be known. However, the current
    applications of stem cell therapy are overstated
    by the media those who do not have the proper
    knowledge about the stem cells and its
    limitations.
  • So here are a few things which are to be known
    about the stem cells.

4
Beneficial for Stem Cell Treatments
  • There are recently very few treatments done by
    the stem cells which are effective. The list of
    diseases that have been shown to be beneficial
    for stem cell treatments is still very short.
    Hematopoietic (or blood) stem cell
    transplantation, for example, bone marrow
    transplantation, treatment of certain blood and
    immune system disorders or reconstruction of the
    blood system after treatment for certain types of
    cancer, is the best-defined and most widely used
    stem cell treatment.

5
Different Types of Stem Cells 
  • Different types of stem cells have different
    functions and come from different places in your
    body. Scientists are discovering the various
    roles that tissue-specific stem cells may play to
    heal or to understand that they have specific
    capabilities. As for example, tissue-specific
    stem cells can only generate the other types of
    cells found in the tissues where they live
    without manipulation in the laboratory. 

6
Different Types of Stem Cells 
  • The blood-forming (hematopoietic) stem cells
    found in the bone marrow can regenerate the cells
    in the blood, while the neural stem cells in the
    brain can only form brain cells.
  • Through multi-step processes using pluripotent
    stem cells, which are embryonic stem cells or
    induced pluripotent stem cells(iPS), scientists
    have learned to make certain specialized cell
    types.

7
Transplantation
  • These cells have the potential to form all the
    different types of cells in the body and provide
    an exciting opportunity to develop new strategies
    for treatment.
  • In theory, during transplantation, your immune
    system would not attack your own cells. An
    autologous transplant is called the use of a
    patients own cells.

8
Effective Medical Treatments
  • However, the processes that acquired, grown, and
    then reintroduced the cells into the body would
    carry risks. The fact that an experimental
    procedure does not automatically mean it is part
    of a clinical trial or research study.
  • Scientists carefully review their work and
    replicate it, inviting their peers to do the same.

9
Effective Medical Treatments
  • This process by which science becomes medicine is
    often long but aimed at minimizing harm of
    patients and maximizing the likelihood of
    efficacy. These are some things that are to be
    known about stem cell therapy.
  • The long and multi-step process involves
    translating science responsibly into safe and
    effective medical treatments.

10
Effective Medical Treatments
  • They may discover during this process that a
    treatment effectively addresses the symptoms of a
    human disease or injury, but it carries
    unacceptable risks.
