Welcome to Health Care Magic,
Stem cell treatment introduces new cells into the damaged tissue to treat disese or injury.Stem cell treatment have the potential of changing the face of human disease and alleviate suffering.Medical researches beleive thatadult and embryonic stem cells will soon be able to treat diabetes,cancer,cardiac failure,coeliac disese,parkinsons disease.Anterior horn cell is a disease which affects the nerve cells of the spinal cord.This disease has no treatment but recent development in stem cell therspy has opened up a avenue to replace the lost neural cells by stem cells.You cant talk about reactions because it comes when no other treatment remains and is the only option.
