Diseases Treated by Stem Cell Therapy

The medical conditions below are currently being treated with stem cell therapy. In the United States, many stem cell treatments are classified as clinical research. Several other countries are implementing treatments and also conducting clinical trials using stem cells derived from other tissue types. The list is growing every day.
