Scientists at the University of British Columbia and Janssen LLC have shown for the first time that Type 2 diabetes can be effectively treated with a combination of specially-cultured stem cells and conventional diabetes drugs. The opensource study published in Stem Cell Reports, holds a much broader potential because Type 2 diabetes accounts for more than 90 per cent of diabetes cases.
Hematopoietic Stem Cells: What Diseases Can these Stem Cells Treat? | Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are defined as stem cells that have a preference for becoming cells of the blood and immune system, such as white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Learn what applications these stem cells can have here.
Using Stem cells that aid in the repair or replacement of cells and tissues in the body to treat conditions and diseases is known as Stem cell therapy. Stem cells facilitate the repair of the body and that is why transplanting them in a patient can speed up their healing process. The body can be made to heal by itself naturally without drugs or surgery.
