Adult Stem Cells


 

MORE THAN 40 YEARS AGO, RESEARCHERS DISCOVERED THAT CERTAIN CELLS CONTAINED WITHIN OUR BONE MARROW HAVE THE ABILITY TO PERFORM A NUMBER OF HEALING FUNCTIONS.  WE CALL THESE CELLS “ADULT STEM CELLS.” (YOUR DOCTOR MAY ALSO USE THE TERMS “MESENCHYMAL” OR “SOMATIC” IN PLACE OF “ADULT.”)  LIKE A COLLEGE STUDENT WHOSE MAJOR IS “UNDECLARED,” THESE CELLS ARE IN A STAGE WHERE THEY HAVEN’T YET DECIDED WHAT TYPE OF CELL TO BE.  THEY MAY:

  • Make copies of themselves
  • Become bone, muscle, cartilage or fat tissue
  • Fight cell death associated with illness or aging
  • Help reduce painful swelling
