A long history of the restorative power of stem cells
Much research has been conducted on the effectiveness of stem cell therapy in both chronic and acute diseases, as well as injury. Although research is ongoing, stem cells have been used in the clinical setting for over 40 years to treat diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma through bone marrow transplants. Stem cells are also being explored as a regenerative therapy for heart disease and are even being considered for the restoration of blood vessels.
But stem cells aren’t just used to treat disease. Professional athletes have been taking advantage of the effects of stem cells for years to treat sports-related injuries to the shoulder, knee and even neck.
