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
