Mesenchymal Stem Cells
After introduction of Organ cells, Research & Development on Stem cells and its potential in cell therapy started to appear. Introducing the Multipotent Stem Cell. They able to repair limited (more than One type) cell types only.
Some well-known example is the Mesenchymal Stem Cell. It was well known too as a complementary biological treatment which was successfully adopted to alleviate symptoms of early ageing and certain degenerative diseases, and also applied to reduce overall inflammation in many illnesses.
They present in multiple tissues, including umbilical cord, bone marrow and fat tissue. Mesenchymal stem cells can self-renew by dividing and can differentiate into bone, cartilage, muscle and fat cells, and connective tissue. However, being multi-potent, their ability limits its differentiation to only a few cell types, hence, the limitation the restore and regenerate many cell types in body systems.
