The human body has two key types of stem cell that are currently showing great promise to mankind: Hematopoietic Stem Cells and Mesenchymal Stem Cells.
Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs)
HSCs that are found in the cord blood and peripheral blood are multipotent stem cells that has the potential to differentiate mainly into blood components such as red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, etc.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)
MSCs that are found in the Wharton’s Jelly, bone marrow, fat tissue and tooth pulp are multi potent stem cells that have the potential to differentiate into a wide range of cells and tissues such as bone, heart, nerve, cornea, fat and cartilage.
