What is a stem cell?

Recent advances in science have brought stem cells to the forefront. These particular cells of the organism are able on the one hand of self-renewal (regenerative power) and on the other hand, of differentiating into other types of cells.

Stem cells are mainly found in adult tissues, bone marrow, umbilical cord, placenta, fetus and embryo.

Stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood, such as those from the bone marrow or blood, are the origin of cells that circulate in the blood (called "hematopoietic" stem cells).
