Stem cells could be the hope we have always needed to cure chronic diseases. They are regrowing whole organs and help people live more, giving them another chance to live. While some people are thinking our future depends on them, there are others who think they don’t have any effect.
- Stem cells might be our hope, in the future. They seem to cure many chronic diseases and help people when they thought nothing is possible.
- Researchers are trying to discover what other diseases they can cure and how important are these cells for people in the whole world.
The BCC made a research about the implications of stem cell and how big is the market at the moment. They also forecast sales from 2016 to 2021. What did they discover was not a surprise having in mind that most people are trusting these cells and would do anything for their health.
The global stem cell market reached over 5,9 billion dollars last year. Researchers think it will grow to 12,3 billion dollars in 2021. This happens also in event national market. Sales are expecting to rise in the U.S., but also in Asia.
Scientists managed to source these cells from human embryos, bone marrow or tissues. For example, if you need a new liver because yours is too damaged due to cancer, stem cells will be used to help your liver to repair itself. In the future, we might even see children with mental problems who are getting better just because they receive this cells. Researchers want to give hope for all those parents and children who are struggling with chronic diseases.
Stem cells might be able to repair corneas and this means many people will not be blind anymore. Researchers are still trying to find out if these cells are a hope for the Alzheimer’s patients too. They have no evidence for this. However, anything is possible and stem cells might be this universal cure, no matter what diseases we have.
There are researchers who studied stem cells for years and they are still having questions about what they are able to cure. What we know is that these cells could be our hope. Cancer, diabetes, heart attacks are diseases that affect people more than ever. Our future could depend on stem cells.
