Stem cell medicine
Stem-cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Bone marrow transplant is the most widely used stem-cell therapy, but some therapies derived from umbilical cord blood are also in use
Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that have the potential to become specialized into different types of cells. Stem cell therapy can be used to prevent or cure several vital diseases like Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, spinal cord injury, etc. Stem Cell Medicine plans to play an active role in guiding and shaping the future of the pharmaceutical industry, now entering the era of personalized medical treatments. Customized medicine will largely depend on cell therapy and stem-cell combinations. Stem Cell Medicine intends to contribute significantly to the industry’s leap from current stem-cell R&D practices, technology and first-stage product development to pharmaceutical solutions.
