Adipose tissue cell banking
With stem cell banking only a recent scientific development, most adults have missed the chance to store their stem cells.
However, newly-developed and affordable adipose tissue cell banking offers a chance to store stem cells later in life for adults.
The process is simple:
• Request your information pack
• Return your storage agreement
• Receive your collection kit and the contact details for your phlebotomist (fully-qualified doctor specialising in blood samples)
• Follow the collection kit instructions
• Arrange courier pick-up
• Arrange for your phlebotomist to come to your house and collect a blood sample
Fatty tissue removed during liposuction procedures contain valuable mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
MSCs can help repair joints, bones and damaged nerves, as well as muscles.
MSCs are also the subject of scores of promising medical trials which could be used to treat major health conditions in the near future, such as type 1 diabetes, spinal injuries and lupus.
Current treatments and therapies based on blood-forming stem cells include:
• Cleft palate repair
• Sickle cell
• Severe Combined Immunodeficiency
• Knee cartilage repair
The use of adipose tissue stem cells is now a leading field in regenerative medicine because of their effectiveness, and ease of harvesting through a minimally invasive procedure.
Speak to the experts at Stem Protect to discuss how adipose stem cell tissue banking can help protect your future health, or treat existing conditions.
Stem cells are unspecialised cells which have the potential to develop into many (but not any) type of cell required to make up different tissues and organs in the body.
Embryonic stem cells are found in the earliest stages of an embryo, shortly after fertilisation has taken place. They are unique as they have the potential to develop into any other type of cell.
