Introduction. Stem cells spontaneously renovate themselves into a specialized adult cell type. These defining characteristics have a lot of advantages in stem cell-based therapies. The two key types of stem cells are pluripotent and multipotent, which can differentiate to various cells in the adult body and only restricted cell types, respectively. Currently, Stem cell treatment is now very promising, bringing tremendous promise for medical medicine by offering treatments for untreatable… Expand
