INTRODUCTION
Stem cells have the power and potential to be one of the most effective agents against aging available to medicine today. A stem cell is an unspecified cell that can both self-renew (produce an exact clone of itself) and differentiate into mature tissues, such as the heart, lung, liver, etc. Adult stem cells are collected from bone marrow (bone marrow stem cells), peripheral blood (peripheral blood stem cells), and cord blood (cord blood stem cells). Embryonic stem cells are collected from a fertilized egg or from an embryo, and can form any of the 200 different tissue types present in the body. It is important to remember that embryonic stem cells are a foreign tissue, and thus carry the risk of all the complications associated with an allogeneic or an unrelated donor transplant if these cells are transplanted into an individual. This paper is concerned with adult stem cells.
