Stem cells and derived products offer great promise for new medical treatments. Learn about stem cell types, current and possible uses, ethical issues, and the state of research and practice. You've heard about stem cells in the news, and perhaps you've wondered if they might help you or a loved one with a serious disease. You may wonder what stem cells are, how they're being used to treat disease and injury, and why they're the subject of such vigorous debate. Stem cells are the body's master cells.

What are Adult Stem Cells? | Adult Stem Cell Treatment

There are several ways adult stem cells can be isolated, most of which are being actively explored by our researchers. Adult stem cells have been found in the brain, bone marrow , blood vessels, skeletal muscle, skin, teeth, heart, gut, liver, and other although not all organs and tissues. They are thought to live in a specific area of each tissue, where they may remain dormant for years, dividing and creating new cells only when they are activated by tissue injury, disease or anything else that makes the body need more cells. Adult stem cells can be isolated from the body in different ways, depending on the tissue. Mesenchymal stem cells , which can make bone, cartilage, fat, fibrous connective tissue, and cells that support the formation of blood can also be isolated from bone marrow. Isolating adult stem cells , however, is just the first step.

4. The Adult Stem Cell

Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells , found throughout the body after development, that multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues. Scientific interest in adult stem cells is centered on their ability to divide or self-renew indefinitely, and generate all the cell types of the organ from which they originate, potentially regenerating the entire organ from a few cells. They have mainly been studied in humans and model organisms such as mice and rats.
The primary role of adult stem cells in humans is to maintain and repair the tissue in which they are found. Stem cells are very flexible cells, sometimes considered immature, that have not developed to a final specialized cell type like skin, liver, heart, etc. Since they have not yet specialized, stem cells can respond to different signals and needs in the body by becoming any of the various cell types needed, e.
