Stem Cells To Bring Revolution In Medical Science
There was a time when people had to look for a donor so that their defected organ can be transplanted. But now with the advent of stem cell technology, it has become easier to develop a stem cell. The stem cells were first found in 2006 and since then they have been sought to be beneficial.
It has been reported that the British scientists have formed a technology by using stem cells which will help in generating liver cells which would save a patient from waiting for a liver donor.
The new technology was found by the scientists while conducting an experiment over the mice. It has been informed that the scientists inserted the new liver cell in the mice and found that the liver cells were working normally.
It is for the very first time when a technique has been formed to correct the genetic mutation by developing organ using the stem cells technology. The scientists have said that it is too early to say whether or not the technique would prove helpful. Therefore, further studies would be conducted before the method is brought in to practice.
The scientists are hopeful that with the usage of stem cells technology, blindness, spinal cord and other severe injuries could be treated without prescribing medicine to the patient. At present, the scientists are keeping their eye on two for of stem cells technique which classified as embryonic stem cells and reprogrammed cells.
