What is Stem Cell?

Stem cells are the main cells that form all tissues and organs in our body. These undifferentiated cells have the ability to divide and renew themselves, and to transform into organs and tissues. The targets of cells such as bone, muscle, cartilage, liver, nerve and skin cells in our body are certain, and when these cells divide, they form cells like themselves. However, stem cells do not have a defined function unlike these cells. Therefore, they can transform into different cell types according to the signal they receive.

Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells found in differentiated tissues and are found in people of all ages. When needed, they turn into different cell types in the tissue they are in. Adult stem cells reproduce by producing copies of themselves as long as the organism lives. These cells serve as spare parts sources that produce new ones in place of aging, diseased or dying cells in the tissues where they are found.

Adult stem cells have been detected in bone marrow, adipose tissue, peripheral blood, heart, kidney, brain, skin, eye, digestive system, liver, pancreas, lung, breast, ovary, testis, prostate and tooth in adults. Adult stem cells have a more limited differentiation potential than embryological cells and can generate a more limited number of progenitor cells. In some physiological and pathological conditions, they can spread to other distant tissues. By taking advantage of these properties of stem cells, stem cell treatments can be applied in bone and musculoskeletal system diseases.

The main areas of use of autologous stem cell therapies are:

In articular cartilage disorders

Arthritis and calcification
