jpnn.com, JAKARTA – Minister of Research and Technology / Head of the National Research and Innovation Agency (Menristek / Head of National Agency for Research and Innovation) Bambang PS Brodjonegoro said that the government continues to carry out 3T (testing, tracing, treatment) as an effort in handling and overcoming the Covid-19 pandemic.

Ideally, the Covid-19 pandemic problem should be resolved upstream through testing and tracing, so as to prevent greater transmission.

But of course testing and tracing isn’t enough.

“Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) and Exosome therapy are alternatives in the treatment and control of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Minister Bambang, Sunday (7/2).

He hopes Indonesia has an advantage in stem cell therapy, not only for the treatment of Covid-19 but as a whole.

This therapy is expected to improve the health of Indonesian people and act as an import substitution.

The Covid-19 pandemic is also an opportunity to increase the capacity and quality of existing stem cell research so that later Indonesia can become a host (stem cell therapy) in its own country.

Stem Cell (stem cell) is the parent of all cells in the human body.
