Cell therapy is therapy in which cellular material is injected into a patient; this generally means intact, living cells. Cell therapy treatment strategies include isolation and transfer of specific stem cell populations, administration of effector cells, and induction of mature cells to become pluripotent cells, and reprogramming of mature cells. Cell therapy originated in the nineteenth century when scientists experimented by injecting animal material in an attempt to prevent and treat illness. Although such attempts produced no positive benefit, further research found in the mid twentieth century that human cells could be used to help prevent the human body rejecting transplanted organs, leading in time to successful bone marrow transplantation.
