What is Known About Stem Cells?

Stem cells are sometimes a controversial topic in the United States due to its association with pregnancy. However, most stem cell procedures that are performed in the United States, all except those being conducted through approved clinical trials, are done using autologous stem cells. These cells are extracted from the patient’s own body. Unfortunately, most people do not understand autologous stem cells or have even heard of them being used for at a stem cell treatment facility.

Types of Stem Cells

There are many types of stem cells that have been researched. The ones that typically make headlines are fetal derived stem cells. These stem cells are sought for research due to their ability to become nearly any type of cell in the body. Similarly, umbilical cord blood stem cells can also be used to create a plethora of different cell types, and these cells have the added benefit that they are not taken from a fetus, but are a natural occurrence found in the umbilical cord post birth. Finally, there are autologous stem cells, also known as adult stem cells, which can be found in the body of an adult.

Finding a Stem Cell Treatment Center

Stem cell treatments have helped thousands of patients suffering from a gauntlet of conditions ranging from neurological to autoimmune diseases. Since the growth in research and subsequent development of protocols for the use of autologous stem cells, more and more clinic in the United States are offering stem cell treatments. Clinics like the Lung Institute extract stem cells from the patient and, after separating, washing and multiplying them, return the cells either intravenously or through a nebulizar. In the case of patients with lung disease, it is common for most of them to feel an improvement in quality of life in under 6 months. The stem cells seek out the damaged tissue in the patient’s body and try to regrow healthy cells in their place. Typically, the result is better lung functioning and easier breathing.
