Abstract

Stem cells abilities to self-renew and differentiate have captured the attention of both developmental biologist and medical practitioners. Stem cells are potentially immortal cells capable of self-renewal and give rise to differentiated cells. No area of research except gene therapy has evolved so much enthusiasm and hope as stem cells. Most medical expert view stem cells research as the new frontiers in medicine, a huge breakthrough that could save millions of life. Medicine today's are based on drug therapy dominated by antibiotics, chemotherapy, and other pharmaceuticals. Medicine of future would be based on cell therapies, focused on repair of tissues/organs by cell transplant i.e. instead of drugs to prevent malfunction or death, diseased cell would be replaced by healthy differentiated stem cell. This article presents a comprehensive review on basics of stem cells and its potential uses in coming future.
