Recently, some types of stem cell research had been legalized in the United States, promoting therapies and treatments in licensed physician’s offices. In the upcoming World Congress on Anti Aging Medicine and Regenerative Biomedical Technologies, breakthroughs in bone marrow stem cell therapy is sure to be discussed.
One of the most well-known techniques in stem cell therapy today is called a bone marrow stem cell transplant, also known as an adult stem cell transplant. Bone marrow transplants have long been used to help treat patients diagnosed with leukemia as well as a number of blood disorders. Blood forms in the bone marrow. One of the most value products of blood is white blood cells, also known as leukocytes. Leukocytes are the front line of defense to fight off infection, bacteria and viruses in the body.

Bone marrow stem cell therapy and bone marrow transplants are not new, but the potential for future discoveries and therapies utilizing bone marrow stem cell therapy holds untold benefits for patients in the future.
