What is the therapeutic potential of adult stem cells?

There has been much progress in the stem cell application field in recent years. Many studies and commentaries have focused on the controversial use of embryonic stem cells. But what do we know of the healing possibilities of adult stem cells?

adult stem cell application

Ingrid Kuehnle and Margaret A Goodell, who are assistant professors at the Center for Cell and Gene Therapy at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, published a paper entitled ‘The therapeutic potential of stem cells from adults’ in 2002. They note the discovery of adult tissue specific stem cells that can “transdifferentiate” into other tissues and how this caused a lot of excitement amongst transplant clinicians and cellbiologists. The authors identified the new research paths that would become available now that stem cell application would not need to rely on embryonic stem cells. Conditions such as neurodegenerative diseases and heart and liver conditions would benefit in particular from adult stem cell application.

Kuehnle and Goodell highlighted strong evidence that multipotent stem cells exist in a number of adult organs and that they can be engineered for therapeutic advantage. They reviewed findings at the time on the plasticity of adult stem cells and possible directions for future research.

The authors were accurate in their high hopes for adult stem cell application. Since 2002 adult autologous stem cell application has been researched and applied all around the world. China, Mexico, South Vietnam and the Ukraine are leaders in the global stem cell application field.

Angeles Health International, the largest hospital network in Mexico, incorporates a stem cell Center of Excellence. Adult autologous stem cell application of the highest standard is available here to treat a huge variety of conditions. To find out more please contact us using the form on your right.

    I am interested in adult stem cell application for my liver. My homerpathatic Doctor who has treated me for 20 yrs. says that my liver did not mature because I was born premature 56 yrs. ago. The liver is formed but the bottom of the large side of my liver does not function properly. I have Multiple Allergy Reaction Syndrome. (MARS) Invironmentally ill. My body does not detox well. I believe the adult stem cells will cause my liver to heal itself. Please explain your process .What part of the body do you take the cells from? How do you grow them? How do you put them back into the body?( Directly into liver?) Do you screen out the cancer cells? Can you manipulate the cells to turn into liver cells? Where do I go for this treatment? I look forward to reply. Thank you .
