Adult stem cell therapy involves collecting adult stems cells, incubating them and re-injecting them back into the body. These adult stem cells will repair and replace the damaged cells in the diseased or aged nerves, tissues or organs of the body and reinvigorate them.
The adult stem cells could be extracted either from the bone marrows and the adipose tissues or fats. Of the two, the adipose tissues are the richer sources and the most accessible. They also contain a specialized class of adult stem cells made up of multiple cell types that promote healing and repair.
Adipose or fat adult stem cells have been shown to differentiate themselves into multiple cell types including muscle, heart, bone, fat, cartilage, and nerve cells.
The major advantages of getting the adult stem cells from the adipose tissues are:
