What are stem cells?
Stem cells are unspecialized cells, which have the potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. If these types of cells are placed in the right conditions, they can divide into more cells called daughter cells. Once they divide as daughter cells, they develop the capability to self renew or become specialized cells with a more specialized function, such as brain cell, muscle cell or red blood cell.
Scientists and doctors are looking forward to the development of stem cell therapy in the years to come because it holds a promise in treating currently incurable diseases.
