Stem cell research and genetic mapping have resulted in some of the most significant medical advancements known to science. These discoveries have opened up many possibilities to heal and repair the body that prior to their discoveries were deemed improbable or impossible. New techniques of obtaining stem cells have allowed scientist to have a better understanding about how they work with other cells and tissues in order to facilitate healing.
It was originally believed that stem cells could only be obtained from the cells located within bone marrow, but after it was discovered that stem cells can be obtained much easier in the fatty connective tissue known as adipose tissue, more cells have been available to research scientists. These adipose derived stem cells, or ADCs, are the most accessible and numerous stem cells in the body. The recent discovery of these cells have exponentially allowed researchers to develop a greater understanding of how stem cells react to other cells, and develop new therapeutic uses for stem cells.
This has shown promise to be beneficial in a variety of medical uses. Women who have suffered the tissue loss after breast cancer surgery, such as a lumpectomy or mastectomy, can use stem cells to regrow tissue in locations of tissue loss instead of the more dangerous options of saline or silicone implants, which are a significantly more dangerous reconstructive option. In cases where a person has lost a significant amount of tissue due to injury, stem cells can help replace the lost tissue and also help the skin to heal scar tissue. Other uses for stem cells include aiding the healing of bones and joints from breaks and damage from osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis as well as repairing other tissues to improve other health conditions such as heart disease.
With these promising findings, it is clear that stem cell research and its uses are only going to continue to improve, thanks to discovery of ADCs.
