Stem cells and their role in neurological and orthopedic cases

Stem cells have remarkable ability to develop themselves by through cell division under laboratory conditions. When they are injected in the body, they can become like the part in which they are injected. Each cell of the stem cell has the potential to remain stem cell or become specified cell such as muscle cell or blood cell or brain cell.  In some organs such as bone marrow or gut, the stem cells replace or repair the worn out parts by dividing themselves.

Stem cells treatment for neurology

Stem cells have shown potential to treat various diseases related to the neurological disorder. The cerebral palsy is the brain injury during pregnancy or after child’s birth. The use of  stem cells in animals have shown results and these are giving confidence that in future the stem cell can be injected into human for curing brain injury.The potential is that by transforming the stem cell into vasculature rather than directly into brain will help improve the condition in human beings.

Similarly, in Alzheimer’s disease, degeneration of brain cells can be cured by use of stem cells. The stem cell grafts can be implanted to cure many disease related to the central nervous system including Alzheimer disease. After grafting, the stem cells can migrate to the part of the brain and become the cell, the lack which causes the diseases. The stem cells can also supply the new cells to promote the recovery by replacing damaged cells rapidly.

Parkinson disease Stem Cells Treatment for Neurological Disorders cure has shown the real possibility because the experiment was conducted on the patient and he showed improvement. The stem cells were isolated from the brain of the patient. They were treated in the laboratory to produce the neurons. Then they were injected into the brain of the patient. The condition of the patient improved and he showed little rigidity of muscles associated with the diseases. This was the first study which demonstrated that stem cell treatment has real potential for curing Parkinson diseases.

Similarly, the stem cells have improved the conditions of animals suffering from brain strokes. Scientists are conducted further research on the spinal cord injury and use of stem cell to cure it.

The use of Stem Cells Treatment For Orthopaedic stem cell has been quite successful in the orthopedic field. It has been used in bone grafting of skeletal defects . Also in treatment of osteoporosis, the stem cells treatment has been very effective. Stem cell treatment is already tested on humans in the field of orthopedic field with excellent results.
