The Hardest Working Cells in Stem Cell Medicine

With the tsunami of research on pluripotent stem cells induced by a 2012 Nobel Prize, in the past several years, adult tissue stem cells experienced a major loss of interest and research effort.  Yet, the greatest progress in stem cell medicine is still due to, in some cases well-known and in other cases not so well known, uses of these natural stem cells.

5 ways adult stem cells are being used in medicine

1. As blood stem cell transplants to support cancer chemotherapy

2. To restore injured corneas

3.  In gene-therapy trials to treat inherited blood disorders (anemias and thalassemias)

4. In clinical trials to improve recovery from strokes and heart attacks

5. In tests for treatment of low back pain
