Investigation of the possibilities of stem cells is one of the most fascinating areas of modern biology. Stem cells have the unique ability to recover damaged areas of organs and tissues. As soon as a signal has been received of any malfunction in the organism, stem cells rush through the bloodstream to the damaged organs. They help to restore almost any diseased organ, differentiating into the required types of cells (bone, smooth muscle, liver, cardiac muscle, nerve) and forcing internal reserves to restore damaged tissues or organs. At the current stage of scientific development one can confidently assert that achievements in the field of stem cells make their use in medicine almost unlimited.
Already today, stem cells are widely used to treat more than 80 diseases, even those that until recently were considered to be incurable and might have resulted in the death of a child at an early age, including various defects of foetal development, the effects of birth injury.
