Stem cell transplantation is a procedure in which a patient receives healthy stem cells to replace damaged stem cells. There are two types of SCT: {{Autologous transplantation uses the patient's own stem cells. These cells are collected from the patient and stored for transplantation. {{Allogeneic transplantation uses stem cells from a donor .

Main body: Stem cells that can be used for tissue regeneration include mesenchymal stem cells, embryonic stem cells, and induced pluripotent stem cells. Transplantation of stem cells alone into injured tissues exhibited low therapeutic efficacy due to poor viability and diminished regenerative activity of transplanted cells.
