Abstract :

Research on stem cells has greatly progressed over the past few years. In the beginning, it seemed as something unreachable but the breakthroughs achieved, such as the first transplant of stem cells origin have proven us wrong. Although this innovative field expands throughout the globe, there are still difficulties on its further expansion. On the other hand, medical tourism has lately been considered as a field where a substantial profit can be achieved. Patients from all over the world, seek treatment in other countries taking different aspects into consideration such as expenses and the quality of the services provided. Traditionally advanced countries in medicine, such as the US, have received enormous numbers of international patients for consecutive years, but lately these figures have spread out across many smaller countries due to the changes in legislation and the advances they have achieved. Combining the innovations in stem cells├ó┬?┬? research and the promising future they hold, extremely successful companies focusing on research have been created, raising the expectations into a higher level.
