Stem cell therapy generally aims to replace or repair damaged or diseased cells within the body and to restore organ function. All vital organs begin to lose some function as you age during adulthood or complications sometimes cause damaged cells in the certain organ. As a result, stem cell therapy becomes one of the treatment options for various diseases including heart diseases.
Mr. Michael Taylor, a British engineer, was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, an inherited heart condition characterized by thickening of the heart muscle, which could result in high blood pressure and cause heart failure. After suffering the disease for over 9 years, researchers then made a discovery proving the effectiveness of stem cell treatment on patients with heart failure. Consequently, the cardiologist and the team advised him to have a stem cell therapy by injecting his own stem cells into the damaged heart tissue. As a result, the injected stem cells promoted the formation of functional new cardiac muscle and new blood vessels. To date, he does not have shortness of breath like before and his heart health improves. In addition, the use of stem cell therapy is expanding for improving digestive and respiratory systems and repairing some vital organs such as lung, heart, and nervous system as well as diabetes treatment.
Regarding autologous stem cell transplant, the patient’s own stem cells are collected and stored for later use. This works best when the patients are healthy so that healthy stem cells can be collected. Therefore, this is the main reason why many people begin storing their own stem cells for their own future health needs.
