Today, stem cell research facilities around the world are patenting their own treatments
and therapies for cancer programs, one of the most popular and effective being the transplantation
of embryonic or fetal stem cells at all stages of the disease process. To date, most types
of cancer have been treated through traditional therapies involving surgery, chemotherapy,
radiation, or a combination of all three. Unfortunately, chemotherapy and radiation
bring with them severe and often debilitating side effects such as nausea, vomiting, weakness,
anemia, and depression. Targeting Cancer Growth
Stem cell researchers and medical professionals around the globe are studying a variety of
stem cells and how they may be used to treat various forms of cancer. Gene therapy and
genomic research is also an important aspect of targeting cancer cells; their creation
and proliferation, and tumor growth. Embryonic and hematopoietic stem cells offer self- renewing
stem cells for implantation or transplantation into cancer patients that replaces damaged
or dead cells and tissues caused by erratic cancer growth.
The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center is just one of the few in the United
States engaging in research and studies in targeting and destroying cancer stem cells
that may offer stem cell therapies and treatments for many different types of cancer, including
Hodgkin’s disease, leukemia, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and testicular cancer, among
many others. Therapies and treatments utilized in the Ukraine, Australia, Asia and Latin
America are focusing on eliminating cancer stem cells from the body before they metastasize,
or spread, to other parts of the body.
