Adult Stem cells (Non Embryonic) are unique, they are primitive and undifferentiated. Unlike other cells, which can fill only one role in the body, undifferentiated cells can replace and regenerate any type of tissue. By seeking out areas of injury and destruction from disease, these cells can fulfill needs within the body and help to regenerate tissue and accelerate healing.
Adult, non-embryonic stem cells can be harvested from the tissue of the patient and re-allocated to the areas where they can do the most good. As additional research is done on the healing power of stem cells, immense therapeutic potential is being uncovered. With the help of adult stem cells, patients have been treated for a variety of disorders including acute and chronic tissue damage.
At this time, the use of stem cells has not been approved by the FDA for the treatment of any specific disease. Current use of stem cells is experimental, and the investigative results can be used to further refine treatments in the future.
