Mesenchymal Stem Cell Treatments

Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Mesenchymal Stem Cells come from Umbilical Cord Tissue, or Placenta Tissue.
Mesenchymal stem cells from the umbilical cord tissue are known to help reduce inflammation, modulate the immune system and secrete factors that help the central nervous system to regenerate.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types. Cell types that MSCs have been shown to differentiate into include osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells) and adipocytes (fat cells).

The capacity of cells to proliferate and differentiate is known to decrease with the age of the donor, as well as the time in culture.

Young cord blood cells can be used from The Placenta, Umbilical Cord, and other young sources. These young cells are more likely than stem cells found in bone marrow or adipose tissue (fat) to have proliferative properties. This means that stem cells found in cord blood have a greater ability to regenerate.

Study comparing Cord Blood cells vs, Bone Marrow cells. "hbmMSC [human bone marrow cells or Autologous Stem Cells] proliferating more slowly than hpMSC [human placenta or cord blood] in every experiment"

"hpMSC [human placenta] had greater long-term growth ability than [bone marrow] hbmMSC"

Depending on budget, condition, age and other factors the best solution can be determined.

Sometimes young cells are placed directly into an organ, other times a simple IV with cells harvested from your own bone marrow will do just fine. We can help you make this decision.
