Stem cells have become a hot topic in the medical field, with potential therapeutic benefits for a variety of diseases. But, like any other medical procedure or treatment, there are potential side effects to be aware of. We’ll explore stem cell adverse reaction and how they can be prevented or minimized.
What is an adverse reaction?
An adverse reaction is a negative reaction to a medication or other treatment. Adverse reactions can range from mild to severe, and can even be life-threatening. Some adverse reactions are specific to certain medications or treatments, while others can occur with any medication or treatment.
Adverse reactions to stem cell therapy
Patients who receive stem cell therapy may experience adverse reactions. The most common adverse reactions are pain at the injection site, swelling, and redness. These reactions are usually mild and resolve on their own. More serious adverse reactions include fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, and shortness of breath. These reactions are rare and typically occur when the stem cells are administered intravenously. Patients should be monitored for these reactions after stem cell therapy and should contact their healthcare provider if they occur.
