In recent years stem cell therapy has become a very promising advanced scientific research topic. The development of treatment methods evoked great expectations. The paper is focused on discovery on different and potential therapy based on the cells. The genesis of stem cells is followed by laboratory steps of control stem cells culturing and derivations. Among many types of stem tissue application and potential of these therapies require attention due to their versatility. This review is summarized by challenges that stem cell therapy must overcome to be accepted worldwide and variety of possibilities make this cutting edge a modern medicine, providing hope for untreatable disease.
