What are Stem Cells?

STEM CELLS are like the building blocks of the human body. At the beginning of our live’s, they divide over and over again to create us from an embryo. During our live’s, they replenish cells in our blood, bone, skin, and organs to keep us alive and functioning. 

What are Stem Cells?

Stem Cell Characteristics:

 Firstly, the ability to self-renew (perform mitosis), this is a part of the cell cycle when replicated chromosomes are separated into two new nuclei. This gives rise to identical replicated cells. No other cell in the body has the natural ability to generate new cell types.

Secondly, to differentiate into specialized cells such as cartilage, heart cells, insulin-producing cells, liver cells, and neurons. This regenerative ability of stem cells makes them the ideal choice to tackle many of today’s chronic disease.

How Stem Cells can be used with Therapeutic Benefit

Immune Modulation:

Stem Cells have the ability to modulate immune responses and control inflammation.

 

Stimulatory Secretions:

Stem Cells produce a range of various stimulatory secretions that aid in repair and regeneration.

Repopulation of Stem Cell Pools:

Newly introduced Stem Cells with young biological age can repopulate our stem cell pools.

Type of Stem Cells used in our Treatments

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) from Umbilical Cord Tissue are our preferred stem cell type and source. MSCs from cord post birth are the youngest source of adult tissue available with stem cells which hold very high rates of differentiation and immune modulation. Also these specific MSCs are immune privileged, which means they can be used as a global donor source stem cell.
