Thetherapy is done in an environment that is not regulated so mostpatients usually sustain serious complications arising from thistreatment. This could in the end prove to be life threatening. Stemcells are very powerful by nature. During transplanting a wrong cellcould be transplanted. This cell may continue to grow and may finallydevelop into a tumor. Other impacts of the stem cell therapy include,infections, which come about due to the low count in white bloodcells and the weakened immune system. Bleeding occurs as a result ofintensive therapies and also due to conditioning. Feelings of nausea,constant fatigue and vomiting also come as side effects.
Thesociety is impacted in such a way that, lack of assuredness of apatient getting well, results in hopelessness among family membersand people who relate to the sick person directly.
