Stem Cell Treatment Of Cancer
Cancer (medical term: malignant neoplasm) is a class of disease in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth (division beyond the normal limits), invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood).
These three malignant properties of cancer differentiate them from benign tumors, which are self-limited, and do not invade or metastasize. Most cancers form a tumor but some, like leukemia, do not. The branch of medicine concerned with the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer is oncology.
Cancer may affect people at all ages, even fetuses, but the risk for most varieties increases with age. Cancer causes about 13% of all human deaths. The Bioscience Americas/GIOSTAR Colombia team of scientists has the ability to replace cancer cells with normal, healthy cells using stem cell based therapy.
