Stem cell ‘pharmacies’ forecast

STEM cell “pharmacies” that dispense tissue therapies could be as common as chemist shops in 20 years‘ time, according to a top scientist.

Professor David Warburton, an expert on stem cells, said the era of stem cell technology was only just beginning.

He expected it to yield undreamed-of forms of personalised treatment for damaged body parts and organs.

“In about 20 years‘ time we will have stem cell banks just like we now have pharmacies with medicines in them.

“You’ll get a diagnosis for a specific problem and be given stem cells to treat that problem.”
