The continuous advancement in the field of technology as well as the advent of the internet has led to one of the most exceptional and excellent therapeutic advances of today and we are referring to SC or Stem Cell therapies. These therapies are said to involve the utilization of Stem Cell that are implanted into the patient who is suffering from a disease, as a way of helping restore or repair their dysfunctional organ.
You may not know about it but there are various experts who claim that the Stem Cell science is not only for the treatment of diseases. In fact, many scientists show that Stem Cells are utilized to serve different purposes namely: the development of new medicines, the study of drug side effects, and the study of disease models. Luckily, the discovery of Stem Cell came at the right time when the costs of delivering health care is increasing, the availability of drugs associated with aging is scarce, when the Baby Boomer population is aging. That is not all of it as there are more such as the fact that the cost of bringing new drugs to the market as well as the time frame involve for it has become exorbitant. Furthermore, it has been stated that the factor in the firewall which has been set between pharmaceutical companies and practitioners, and the outlook for biotech is austere.
Various experts have claimed that the cost of developing chemical drugs does not compare to the cost associated with the use of biologic therapies. Conversely, Stem Cell therapies do not need any reinvention of the wheel. We now have what we call as Autologous Stem Cell that can be availed by anyone. As for quality control, it is mandated by FDA scrutiny. There are so many different kinds of SC options available that one can choose from such as embryonic Stem Cell and what people want to know is whether or not the usage of such option is possible to achieve.
The truth is that though embryonic Stem Cell is useful and attractive, it has not been utilized at all due to the religious objects and ethical debates which centered on the said subject. Then we have the induced pluripotential SC which is a stem cell derived from adults cells and though many experts find this option intriguing, the truth is, it is still on the development phase. Albeit the fact that these cells behave the same way embryonic SC does, there are still some bugs that must be ironed out.
