Stem cells could provide unlimited donor source for transplantation and tissue generation in vitro. The application of stem cells is to restore functions in various diseases including spinal cord injury, myocardial infraction, leg Ischemia, diabetes; Parkinson’s in animal and human research studies.
“It is regenerative biology having immense therapeutic potential to treat degenerative diseases as they are not curable by modern medicine. With advanced research, the benefits of adult stem cells are becoming clearer. The long term objective of regenerative medicine or cell therapy is to treat patients with their own stem cells, stated Dr RR Bhonde, National Centre for Cell Science, Pune.
