What are Cord Tissue derived stem cells?
The tissue of the umbilical cord, or ‘cord tissue’, is an additional source of valuable stem cells.
The tissue of a baby’s umbilical cord is an abundant source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) which are different from the types of stem cells found in a baby’s cord blood.
Due to the potency of these cells we offer protocols involving the administration of many hundreds of millions of cord tissue derived stem cells.
MSCs have the unique ability to rapidly divide, regenerate and differentiate themselves into a wide range of cells types. These powerful cells are showing great potential in clinical research for conditions affecting cartilage, muscle and nerve cells.
Cord tissue stem cells, also known as Mesenchymal Stem Cells or MSCs, are found in the Wharton’s Jelly and perivascular regions of the umbilical cord.
MSCs are showing great potential in the fields of regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and gene therapy. They can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including bone, cartilage, muscle, nerve and others.
There is a vast quantity of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in cord tissue, which can differentiate into many types of cells, including organ, muscle, skin, bone, cartilage, and fat cells.
Research is growing at an incredible pace. MSCs from cord tissue are currently being used in over 300 clinical trials and hold the promise of being able to someday treat debilitating conditions and injuries to bones and cartilage.
