Stem cells are cells of the body (somatic cells) which can divide and become differentiated. When an organism grows, stem cells, specialize and take specific functions. They have the potential to regenerate and repair damaged tissues.
Together with growth factors, stem cells lay the foundation of Regenerative Medicine.
Stem Cells are the therapy for many diseases, that up to date, are difficult to cure, or in case they can be cured, the patient will have to go through invasive techniques, heavy drugs with dangerous side effects or, heavy surgery.
Luckily, stem cells have opened new doors to treat severe disorders that so far have no remedy.
