The Wonders of Medicine: Fetal Stem Cell Therapy
Fetal stem cell therapy is a complicated therapy wherein fetal stem cell treatment is combined with conventional therapy. This kind of therapy is one of the latest developments in modern medicine. Stem cells are forerunners of other specialized cells in the body which include the liver, blood, skin, mucosa and other cells which compose the body tissue.
In fetal stem cell therapy, a transplantation of these precursor cells happens so as to form groups of cells that help the body systems and functions such as the nervous, immune and muscular systems, blood circulation, hematopoiesis and others.
Various types of stem cells are used which can come from germ layers of legally aborted embryos about five to eight weeks of gestation. These are the cells used because they are believed to have therapeutic effects. The fetal cells, after their administration in the patient’s body, travel to the areas of damage, engraft, multiply and undertake specialization regulated by the patient or recipient. Furthermore, they can serve as replacement to the broken or lost cells and can restore the mass of the cell and other impaired body functions.
There are a vast listed advantages of fetal stem cell therapy to the human body. These include restoration of the competence of the immune system which depends on what is useful for the patient in his current condition. There is also a fast and extensive development of volitional, physical and even mental activities of the recipients. An alleviation and enhancement of the patient’s mood can also be noted. There are also positive effects to the psychophysiological changes especially when it comes to memory, thinking and attention.
The trophic functions of tissues and organs are stimulated as well, therefore, improving the cases of injured tissues, damaged functions, processes of aging and on functional rejuvenation.
