Cancer and Stem Cells
How can stem cell therapy be beneficial in cancer treatment?
The blood-forming stem cells are found in the bone marrow. Through several stages of maturation, all our blood cells are formed. The maturation of the stem cells takes place gradually and depending on where errors occur in the maturation process different blood cancer diseases can develop.
In many cancer patients, the disease is found in the blood cells. Chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy treatment of these patients kills both cancer cells and the healthy blood-forming stem cells. Transplanted stem cells from cord blood can help regrow the healthy blood cells after the chemotherapy and/or radiation treatment for various blood cancers.
