The treatment was developed through the research of stem cells. These cells are undifferentiated, meaning they have not yet become a specific type of cell, such as a blood or nerve cell. Although the potential for stem cells remains unknown, scientists hope that further stem cell research will lead to cures of diabetes, Alzheimer s disease, Parkinson s disease, and more. The search for cures has met resistance as the ethical debate over the use of stem cells continues.
