Every cell in our body has a unique job to perform. The same is the case with stem cells or umbilical mesenchymal stromal cells. These cells are a particular type of cells capable of evolving into many different types of specialized cells within the body. Due to their ability to repair, regenerate and develop into certain specialized cell types, stem cells offer great promise as a therapy for several diseases. Stem cells have the potential to curb 80 per cent of life-threatening diseases.
A small study was conducted on a few critically ill Covid-19 patients. They were treated with non-altered stem cells from umbilical cord connectivity tissues, and they showed more chances of survival.
A clinical trial was conducted out of India where patients of 4 hospitals had chronic health issues like diabetes, hypertension and kidney disorder. Half of the patients were intravenously infused stem cells, and the other half was given for another treatment.
These cells are a particular type of cells that are capable of evolving into many different types of specialized cells within the body.
The set of patients who received the stem cell treatment showed up to 4.5 % better results than the other set of patients.
The usage or infusion of stem cells are safe and can be well-tolerated by the body. They are neither life-threatening nor causes any acute allergy.
These days, there is a high demand for curing various illness through stem cells. Several multiple cord blood banks have started preserving stem cells.
