Only recently amniotic fluid has emerged as a possible source of stem cells. Amniotic fluid cells of human origin proliferate rapidly and are multipotent. Hence amniotic fluid has been proposed as a source of stem cells for tissue regeneration. Regenerative medicine is an emerging field which focuses on regeneration of cells, tissues o even the entire organ.
