Benefits of stem cells
Osteoporosis is a skeletal disease characterized by a decrease in bone mass density. Bones become more fragile, less resistant to impacts, and more prone to fractures.
The likelihood of developing osteoporosis partly depends on how much bone mass you attained during your youth. Several factors, including age, race, lifestyle, as well as medical conditions and treatments, can increase the probability of developing osteoporosis.
The potential of mesenchymal stem cells to treat osteoporosis has been confirmed.
Stem cells promote the generation of new bone tissue and connective tissues. They help rebuild and strengthen bones, reversing damage. The bone marrow stem cells age with time, causing bones to become weaker and susceptible to fractures or the development of osteoporosis. Regenerative medicine has discovered ways to slow down this decline using stem cells.
In conclusion, stem cell therapy has shown to increase the strength, plasticity, and structure of bones. This revolutionizes the current treatment of osteoporosis (using antiresorptive and anabolic drugs), which often comes with many side effects.
