Stem cells are primitive cells that can survive for a long time, which have the ability to reproduce themselves and have the potential for directional differentiation. They are the fundamental power to sustain life and they can be found in almost all types of tissues. The therapeutic purpose of stem cell therapy is to separate and culture normal stem cells then transfuse them back into patients’ body in order to repair or replace damaged cells and tissues.
Stem cell therapy is an important direction and technology of development for tissue and organ regenerative medicine. It has positive effects on anti-aging of organism and has already been shown to be effective in a variety of tissue injuries and chronic diseases, for instance, diabetes complications, spinal cord injury, refractory ulcers, empyrosis, fracture healing, myocardial infarction, chronic liver disease and other clinical treatments. The further development and rational application of this technology will bring tangible benefits to more patients.
