Stem cell treatments

Medical researchers believe that stem cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease and alleviate suffering.

A number of current stem cell treatments already exists, although they are not commonly used because they tend to be experimental and not very cost-effective.

In the future, medical researchers anticipate being able to use technologies derived from stem cell research to treat cancer, spinal cord injuries, and muscle damage, amongst a number of other diseases and impairments.
