1. Briefly on the history of stem cells. The allegation that the stem cells were discovered recently and are just starting to be used in medicine is a myth.

In fact stem cells are used to treat most severe human diseases for over 50 years. For example, a bone marrow transplantation for the treatment of leukemia (blood cancer) which has entered in medical treatment standards long time ago is neither more nor less than transplantation of hematopoietic bone marrow stem cells. By the way, the rejuvenating effect of stem cells was first noted in the treatment of blood diseases. And not only that. Oncohematologists have repeatedly reported cases of patients have been cured from concomitant diseases after bone marrow stem cells transplantation to treat leukemia. After this medical procedure cases cured from severe joint disease were officially registered (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis), severe connective tissue diseases (systemic lupus erythematosus) and even cirrhosis.
