Stem Cell Therapy
What is stem cell therapy?
Cells are coined the “building blocks of life” because they are the basic unit of all living organisms. Stem cells are unique from ordinary cells due to two distinct characteristics: proliferation and differentiation. Stem cells can proliferate, meaning they can grow and divide for a long period of time. Stem cells can differentiate, meaning they are unspecialized cells and have the ability to develop into different types of specialized cells throughout the body.
The potency and reproducibility of stem cells have made them a topic of research for over 50 years, including Alzheimer's Disease, Parkinson's Disease, traumatic brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, cancer, and various neurodegenerative conditions.
Cord Blood Stem Cells
Cord blood is the term used for blood found within the umbilical cord and placenta of a newborn child. The cord blood contains stem cells, and is easily collected after birth without harm. The stem cells collected from cord blood have unique advantages compared to adult stem cells. The younger stem cells have the ability to proliferate and differentiate with a low risk of viral contamination and less risk of graft-versus-host disorder (GVHD). Cord blood cells are also advantageous because they do not have to be as closely matched as bone marrow or other blood transplants have to be. Cord blood has been used to treat around 80 diseases and disorders.
We use the best stem cells available on the market that are 92.5% viable, proven through 3rd party testing. These results are 38% higher than the industry standard.
