  A stem cell is essentially a ‘blank’ cell, capable of becoming another more differential cell type in the body, such as a skin cell, a muscle cell, or a nerve cell. Microscopic in size, stem cells are big news in medical science circle because they can be used to replace or even heal damaged tissues and cells in the body. It can play a leading role as it bears a unique property of differentiating into a required cell. Thus it can be a bank of cells which can be stimulated or triggered to get differentiated into any morphologically developed cell and function as so. This review, outlines the sources and the tremendous power these adult stem cell possess and ways of harnessing it for the benefit of humankind.
