Programme Human Stem Cells to Produce Different Types of Tissue on Demand: Estimated Production Queries and Results
Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide to produce more stem cells. Stem cells are mother cells that have the potential to become any type of cell in the body. One of the main characteristics of stem cells is their ability to self-renew or multiply while maintaining the potential to develop into other types of cells. Stem cells can become cells of the blood, heart, bones, skin, muscles, brain etc. There are different sources of stem cells but all types of stem cells have the same capacity to develop into multiple types of cells. As stem cells studies advance, stem cell therapy is looked upon as the go-to treatment option for a number of medical conditions. In a breakthrough development in stem cell studies, researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a new programming technique that will allow the production of different types of tissues on-demand on a chip. Treatments for autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and growing tissues on-demand for organ replacement is not a faraway reality.
