Abstract:Stem cell research has been hailed for its potential to revolutionize the field of regenerative medicine with the ability to regenerate damaged and diseased organs. In addition to offering unprecedented hope in treating many debilitating diseases, stem cells have advanced our understanding of basic biological processes. Intense study on stem cells in the past decade has kindled worthy knowledge about developmental, morphological, and physiological processes that form the basis of tissue and organ formation, maintenance, repair, and regeneration. Today’s medicine generally tries to support or treat injured tissues and organs, but stem cells simply replace them. Stem cell research is complicated and rapidly changing. The correlation of stem cell technology with tissue repair still has a long way to go. Since embryonic stem cells are a thorn inside when it comes to the ethics of therapeutics, stem cells isolated from adult tissues sidestep this issue entirely and have become a potent contemporary source of stem cells for tissue repair and regeneration. Conceptually and from a practical standpoint, the bone marrow has been the most influential source of stem cells that offers a possibility of being used in a wide range of therapeutics. Clinical situations frequently demand stem cells with dependable quality and quantity to treat disorders of cellular degeneration. Challenges to bring advances to the clinical mount have expanded rapidly, engendering new perspectives concerning the identity, origin, and full therapeutic potential of various tissue-specific stem cells.
