Stem cell research


What are stem cells?

Stem cells differ from other cells in the body in three ways:

  • They can divide and renew themselves over a long time
  • They are unspecialized
  • They have the potential to become specialized cells, such as muscle cells, blood cells, and brain cells

Stem cells serve as the repair system for your body. As you age, your body has fewer and fewer stem cells.

What can stem cells be used for?

Stem cells are showing promising results for such things as M.S., Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Cardiovascular Disease, COPD, Stroke, and Pain just to name a few. Research has been highly focused on joint pain i.e. knees, elbows, backs, wrists, fingers, etc. Stem cell therapy can become an alternative to invasive surgeries.
