What are the limitations of stem cells from blood?

  • Blood stem cells (hematopoietic stem cells, or HSC’s) can only repair or replace the cells of the blood. Blood stem cells can generate three general types of blood cells: leukocytes (white blood cells), erythrocytes (red blood cells), and platelets. HSC’s are thus not capable of repairing stromal or vascular structures or tissues in the body.
