Stem cells and their use in treatment of diseases

Stem cells are different from other cells of the body. They have three general characteristics, they can divide themselves in countless cells, and they can
also renew themselves for longer period. And their divide themselves without any infection. All stem cells have these characteristics, regardless of their origin. The stem cells can also specialized themselves into cells, where they are injected.  The stem cells can give million of cells in the laboratory for use in any part of the body.

The widespread use of stem cells has been to treat the diseases of blood and immune system. The stem cells are also used for blood system restoration after treatment for cancer. In American, the stem cells are used to treat the skin burnt cases by growing skin grafts for patients with severe skin burns. But there are some aspects of this treatment for burnt skin that has to be improved. The skin generated with the treatment of stem cells is not like normal skin and has to hair follicles or sweat glands. But scientists are trying to improve the effectiveness of stem cell treatment,

Today the Stem Cells Therapy in India is used to produce tissues and cells that can be used for cell based therapies. There is need to replace damaged organs in large number of patients but the availability is less and demand is growing. The gap could be filled by growing organs and tissues with the help of stem cells by injecting them into tissues and organs needed .For example, the use of stem cells can be done to produce heart muscle cells in the laboratory and then inject the same into the person with heart diseases. The research done in laboratory on mice has shown positive results in this regard. Now, scientists are try to understand whether the stem cells can generate heart cells or help to grow new blood vessels to repopulate the heart tissue. The tests in laboratory have shown promise that in future it would be Stem Cells Treatment in India possible to cure heart diseases in humans with injecting stem cells grown in the laboratories.. Also diseases related to brains, such as brains stroke, and diabetes can also be treated with the use of stem cells by various methods.  For example, in diabetes, the production of insulin stops, which regulates the amount of sugar in the body. The stem cells can be injected into the human to generate insulin producing cells to cure the diabetes.
