1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Cell therapy generally involves stem or pluripotent cells that have the potential, under the right triggers, to grow into many different types of cells.
These cells are then transplanted to an area of disease. Gene therapy generally involves replacing small dysfunctional segments of dna. Dna is present in almost every cell in our body and is the instruction manual that tells the cell what to do.
