The stem cell transplant has become a promising therapy to treat a range of disease conditions. Many lives can be saved by the application of modern stem cell therapy. The emphasis on treatment is to restore the function of bone marrow to strengthen the immune system. Moreover, further research is underway to explore additional ways to employ this tool for the treatment of untreatable diseases. A stem cell therapy has the power to revolutionize highly developed ways of treating for multiple diseases such as cancer, auto-immune diseases, stroke, paraplegia, cardiovascular diseases, blood disorders etc.
The research provided the hope to patients with incurable diseases, globally. The therapeutic potential of this treatment is to replace the previous ways of treatment.
In Pakistan, stem cell analysis breakthrough is just a decade old. It was introduced by Dr. Tahir Shamsi in Pakistan; started work on hematological disorders. His contributions are remarkable for Pakistan. Still, the government support is needed to promote research in such scientific area to aid patients suffering from intractable disorders.
β-Thalassemia is the most prevailing genetic disorders in Pakistan. Blood transfusion is the possible treatment of the disorder, whereas it causes damage in liver and heart. Accordingly, it needs to prominence the interest in treating this disease with stem cell curative therapy. Furthermore, spinal cord injuries, type-1 diabetes, myeloma and myocardial infarction are also common diseases in Pakistan. A stem cell has the potential to treat these diseases as a curative therapy. Economic factors are the obstacles in the development of stem cell analysis; conversely, there is an immense demand to facilitate research in Pakistan by the government along with private sectors. However, the latest stem cell therapeutic approach is the hope for lots of patients to increase their vitality.
