Stem cell therapy is an incredibly promising new area of medical science. It’s already being used in the treatment of leukemia to help patients regrow healthy blood cells destroyed by chemotherapeutic agents along with cancerous cells. Stem cells also show promise for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases and injuries, including neurological disorders, type 1 diabetes and other diseases with a genetic component.
However, not every country has the facilities to provide all of the possible benefits of stem cell therapy, leading patients to travel abroad in search of treatment. In some countries, stem cells are used to treat cirrhosis, diabetes, burns, multiple sclerosis and hepatitis, among other ailments. At least for the time being, many may have to travel to reap the benefits of stem cell treatments.
