Stem cells heal the body

The natural function of stem cells is to detect damaged and dysfunctional cells in the body so that a renewal and healing process can begin.

What are stem cells?

Why are stem cells so crucial? When we suffer injuries or fall ill, our cells become damaged or die. In response, stem cells spring into action, repairing wounded tissues and replacing lost cells. This activity enables them to maintain our health and slow down the aging process. Hence, they are often referred to as ‘little doctors‘ within our bodies.

Stem Cell multi-differentiation function

There are various types of cells in the human body that are important for maintaining health. These cells are necessary to move the body every day, such as moving the heart, thinking with the brain, cleaning blood with the kidneys, and creating new skin cells. The special task of stem cells is to make these cells. 

Stem cells are the only cells and source in the body that make various cell types, such as blood, bone, nerve and muscle cells. They also repair damaged tissue.
So, stem cells are essential for the treatment of some diseases, such as blood cancer(leukemia), and have the potential to treat many other diseases.

The function of stem cells

The function of stem cells

When a stem cell divides, it can divide into the same stem cell or become another cell.

(1) self-replicating : capable of replicating cells with the same ability as themselves
(2) multipotent : capable of differentiating into different lineages
For example, Adipose derived adipose stem cells can make more fat cells, and they can also create differentiated dermal fibroblasts or cartilage tissues.

What are stem cell types?

Types of Stem Cell

We classify stem cell types by source or function.

The mechanism of mesenchymal stem cells

The homing effect of stem cells

Stem cells possess properties that allow them to newly replenish cells that have been lost to disease and injury.
They possess a property whereby they move through blood vessels and lymphatic vessels seeking out damaged sites of their own accord to repair and regenerate. This is known as a ‘homing effect’.
