Adult Stem Cells

What is an Adult stem cell?
An adult stem cell is essentially a “blank” cell, capable of becoming another more differentiated cell type in the body, such as a skin cell, a muscle cell or a nerve cell.

Microscopic in size, stem cells are big news in medical circles because they can be used to replace or even heal damaged tissues and cells in the body. Adult stem cells can serve as a built-in repair system for the human body, replenishing other cells as long as a person is still alive.

Where do we get adult stem cells?

For this study's purposes, the adult stem cells are harvested from the patient's own bone marrow/blood. They do not use embryonic stem cells so they are NOT killing babies!
