evidence in scientific journals declares that stem cell can be used in human
medicine for therapeutic purposes. We reviewed the lated literature on
clinical trials conducted with stem cells. The main information was offered by
http://www.ClinicalTrials.gov. These clinical trials cover
almost all human diseases, from hematologic diseases to non-hematologic
diseases including Interventional trials and observational trials. In conclusion,
at present, the clinical trials with stem cells have been extending to almost
all human diseases. Optimal medicinal effect reported in some non-hematologic
diseases is pushing the advance of stem cells therapy
