It is widely acknowledged that the liver stands apart from other organs due to its unique ability to regenerate itself. Nevertheless, in severe cases, the liver loses this regenerative capacity, leading to extensive scarring beyond the point of natural repair. This is where the promising potential of stem cells comes into play, as they have demonstrated the ability to reverse this degenerative process and promote overall liver health.
Among the potential approaches under consideration, mesenchymal stem cells have emerged as a prominent candidate for the treatment of this condition. By promoting stabilization within the liver's internal environment, stem cells create a more conducive environment for regeneration and healing, offering relief for those afflicted by liver cirrhosis, which is commonly caused by chronic alcohol abuse or hepatitis.
