In brief: Many
The main lethal disease treated with stem cell transplants are hematologic malignancies such as leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Bone marrow failure (aplastic anemia) is also treated with stem cell transplants. Some life-threatening genetic disease can also be treated with a transplant.

In brief: Stem cell
We have been using limbal stem cell transplants in eye surgery for years with excellent results. See eyedoc2020@blogspot.com. Stem cell injections are now being used to treat painful joints (shoulders, hips, etc), Alzheimers, ALS, Lyme, Cerebral Palsy, etc. Still there are not great published studies proving its benefit in many of these conditions, though.
