  • The History of Stem Cell Treatment

    The History of Stem Cell Treatment

    Regenerative medicine, especially the use of stem cells, is the explosive new form of medical treatment available for many types of physical injuries and conditions. And, while research is ongoing and science continues to find new uses for stem cells to improve human health, the discovery of stem cells and how they work in the body has been a topic of study for more than 100 years. Although we think of stem cells as being a recent discovery, it was a Russian histologist who first coined the term “stem cell” to describe something he observed about blood, in 1908.
