1. What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is the treatment of various neuromuscular, neurodegenerative and blood cancer-like diseases with the help of unspecialised cells that can divide and specialise into any cells. These cells can be derived from the umbilical cord or bone marrow of a donor.
2. Why stem cell therapy is required?
Some diseases in which body cells start dying cannot be cured; in those cases, stem cell therapy is helpful to replace the nonfunctional and diseased cells with healthy and functional cells.
3. Who performs a stem cell therapy?
A stem cell doctor who is a licensed medical practitioner, has an MD, PhD degree in biological sciences and specialised training in subjects, such as genetics, developmental biology, laboratory-based stem cell courses, advanced courses in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine, can perform stem cell therapy. In addition, he/she must also have the experience to work in a clinical setup.
4. Is stem cell therapy safe?
Stem cell therapy is safe and effective when performed on the knees for repairing degenerating knee joints and bone marrow transplant. It can pose a severe risk when done on other parts of the body, as stem cell therapy for different parts of the body is not common and is under research.
5. How effective is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is more effective than the conventional therapies in use and is a concise term treatment.
