The Future of Stem Cells

The list of stem cell treatable diseases continues to grow at a rapid pace. With the potential to become different cell types, scientists are exploring the possibility of using cord blood stem cells to treat some of the most common life-threatening diseases such as heard diseases and stroke. Commonly used treatments
Repair Nerve Cells : to heal brain and spinal cord injuries or brain damage caused by stroke

Regenerate cells to form new blood vessels: to treat heart and circulatory disease

Replace damaged cells: to improve recovery from cardiovascular diseases, a heart attack, or injury

Regenerate brain cells: to treat brain injury, cerebral palsy and Parkinson's disease
