Stem Cell Therapy: The Alternative to Knee Replacement / How do STEM CELLS know what type of tissue to develop into?
The differentiation of Stem Cells is a very complex process, and depends on the ability of Stem Cells including to respond to adult tissue cell-derived and micro-environmental signals. Based on these cues, the Stem Cells will respond appropriately, including the potential to develop into healthy tissue needed to repair damaged tissue. For example, mulitpotent Stem Cells delivered to damaged bone will promote the development of bone cells to aid in tissue repair.
