Cellular therapy (CT) involves transplanting human cells to replace or repair damaged tissue. In the future, many different types of cells may be used to treat various diseases and conditions due to new technologies, innovative products, and limitless imagination.
In cell therapy, living cells are used as drugs to treat disease. Using cell therapy to treat cancer takes advantage of the immune system's inherent ability to locate and destroy abnormal cells in the body.
Most often, stem cell transplants are used to treat leukaemia and lymphoma. In addition, they may be used to treat neuroblastoma and multiple myeloma. Other types of cancer are being studied in clinical trials, which are research studies that involve human participants.
The most common type of cell therapy is blood transfusion, which involves the transfusion of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets from a donor. Over 40 years ago, hematopoietic stem cells were transplanted into patients to create bone marrow.
