The development of advanced science and technology is highly
beneficial to humans. As with the benefits of stem cells or stem
cells. This technology is capable of treating serious diseases such as
diabetes and burns. Diabetes Diabetes is a serious health disorder
that is associated with high levels of glucose in the blood. Stem cell
therapy as an alternative therapy for the treatment of diabetes in the
future. In a study being conducted by experts Faculty of Medicine,
University of Indonesia (Faculty), stem cells can treat people with
diabetes type 1 and 2 chronic blood glucose levels can no longer be
controlled with diet therapy, exercise, and medication. Stem cell for
this disease is done by selecting stem cells to be isolated, or
modified conditions are optimized, and then be transplanted into the
patient, to be able to produce the hormone insulin to absorb sugar
cell. However, the use of stem cells in the treatment of diabetes
today, still in the stage of further research. Burns (Skin
Replacement) Stem cells can be used to treat damaged parts of the
body, eg skin areas. "About 50 per cent, we have managed to get the
keratinocyte isolation method that can be derived. Identification of
skin stem cell or keratinocyte stem cell is made" synthetic leather
"the material from the patient's own body, so that did not experience
rejection," said plastic surgeon, Dr. Ni Made, Swantari, MBIOMED,
SpBP. Skin replacement can be performed on two types of injuries.
Acute injuries are the first new injuries occur and generally through
the phases of normal wound healing, so the skin will be closed again.
Second, chronic wounds are wounds that are not covered with skin for
more than three weeks. Acute wounds that require skin stem cells is
extensive acute injury, such as extensive burns within, or death of
the skin due to traffic accidents, while the injured are in need of
stem cell chronic skin wounds such as diabetes, blood pressure of
time, injury due to radiation, and other injuries healed long. Until
now, stem cell replacement skin is still in the stage of
identification and concentration. Researchers are still going to test
it with some other antibody method.
