Some of the sources that have been used successfully are bone marrow, which has been used in the autologous bone marrow transplantation, which the bone marrow is extracted from one persons’ bone (donor), and given back to another person to be able to replenish the hematopoietic stems cells. Cord blood has also been used in autologous, cord blood cells are collected and stored at birth and then safely infused back into an individual in the later stage without experiencing the risk of the immune rejection. Scientific research related to the use of stem cells is the bone marrow transplant. In this process stem cells from a donor’s bone marrow is used to regenerate healthy bone marrow in patients who suffer from leukemia and other blood diseases. Stem cell are the undifferentiated cell of a multicellular organism that is mainly capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells which are of the same type and also from which the other certain kinds of cell arise due to differentiation.
