Abstract

In the last few years, the stem cell therapy has gained much popularity among researchers and scientists of biomedical field. It became an effective and alternative approach for the treatment of various physiological conditions (like accidental injuries, burn damage, organ failure, bone marrow transfusion, etc.) and chronic disorders (diabetes, cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, periodontal diseases, etc.). Due to the unique ability of cellular differentiation and regeneration, stem cell therapy serves as the last hope for various incurable conditions and severe damages. The amalgamation of stem cell therapy with nanotechnology brings new prospects to the stem cell research, as it improves the specificity of the treatment and controls the stem cell proliferation and differentiation. In this review article, we have discussed various nanocarrier systems such as carbon nanotubes, quantum dots, nanofibers, nanoparticles, nanodiamonds, nanoparticle scaffold, etc. utilized for the delivery of stem cell inside the body.
