Because of the advent of the internet and the continuous advancement in the field of technology, there are now so many things happening in the world and one of which is the discovery of an exciting and brilliant therapeutic advancement – the Stem Cell or SC 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. The truth of the matter is that Stem Cells are being used to serve different purposes like the study of drug side effects, the study of disease models, and also, the development of new medicines. Good thing that the advent of the said revolution came at the right time, particularly with how the availability of drugs associated with aging is insufficient, the Baby Boomer population is aging, and also, the costs of delivering health care is rising. 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. Moreover, you have to be aware of the fact that the factor in the firewall that has been set up between the outlook for biotech and pharmaceutical practitioners and companies is desolate.
You should know by now that the cost associated with biologic therapies are far more expensive when compared to the cost of developing chemical drugs. However, Stem Cell therapies are different due to the fact that this particular science do not require any reinvention of the wheel. At present, we have what we call as Autologous Stem Cell which is available in the market. 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. There are other forms of Stem Cell therapies that you should know of like the induced pluripotential which are stem cells derived from adult cells and though they might be intriguing, nothing can be done as they are still on the development stage. Although the aforementioned Stem cell therapy is known for behaving the same way embryonic Stem Cells does, there are still several bugs that must be ironed out.
