It is important to understand how stem cells actually do what they do in order to understand how much time the treatment will take to prove effective.

They themselves do not turn into tissue, and their existence is temporary, but introducing “adult” stem cells to an injury site (like an arthritic joint) has an activating effect.

January 25th, 2018
