Stem cell research and development continues to move forward at an accelerated pace. Recently, researchers at Children’s Hospital in Oakland, California completed studies that found that placenta stem cells may very well prove an important and valuable source for curing blood related disorders such as sickle cell anemia and leukemia.
Children’s Hospital in California is not the only facility that has been researching treatments and cures for formerly lifelong disease processes. Nearly every day, researchers and scientists find new ways in which the potential of stem cell research may be utilized in the pursuit of cures for neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s, Alzheimer’s and many different types of cancer. Today, stem cell therapies are used to treat autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease and myasthenia gravis. Stem cell treatments have been used in the cosmetic and plastic surgical field as well as in the treatment of cardiovascular and metabolic disorders.
Individuals suffering from cirrhosis of the liver, wounds, gangrene, multiple forms of anemia, and autoimmune diseases and disorders are looking for researchers to find effective and viable treatments through research of adult stem cell, embryonic, umbilical and placental stem cells.
Excellent facilities for stem cell research and therapy may be found in Mexico, Asia and Europe. Integrative Medical Center in Mexico and EmCell, located in Kiev and the Bangkok Hospital Medical Center in Thailand are just three well known destinations where international travelers seeking stem cell treatments may go for treatment for chronic illnesses and treatments in cardiovascular, immunodeficiency, cancer and neuromuscular diseases and disorders. Stem cell therapy research and treatments offer patients hope and will continue as long as research and developments continue to discover their untold benefits.
