Stem Cells Immunology

In addition to being commonly used for regenerative medicine, stem cells are also considered a useful tool in cancer treatment. Stem cells have long been used to renew the immune system for patients treated with radiation or chemotherapy. Stem cells have recently been designed to bring therapeutic reagents to target tumor sites. Cancer vaccines are researched and tested for cancer treatment based on knowledge of cancer stem cells. Using in-duced pluripotent stem cells, active T cells were created to support immunotherapy for cancer. These are due to stem cell's unique characteristics, such as immunological tolerance, migration and tissue repair. Stem cells are used as carriers for carrying drugs or therapeutic vector viruses to tumors in gene therapy for cancer treatment.

Current research reveals a wide range of ways in which stem cells are designed to fight diseases such as cancer. A breakthrough in this field was created by the recent discovery of reprogramming patient-derived cells. There is no doubt that in the future of cancer treatment, stem cell technology will play a major role.
