Umbilical Cord Blood
The umbilical cord, known as cord blood, is a rich and readily available source of primitive, undifferentiated stem cells (of type CD34-positive and CD38-negative). These can be used for treating with over 40 diseases taking advantage of stem cells taken from umbilical cord blood like Bone marrow disorders, Immune system disorders, blood disorders and many others.
Your baby's cord blood is a valuable source of non-controversial stem cells; the building blocks of our blood and immune systems. Cord blood stem cells, like bone marrow stem cells, are free of political and ethical debate. The value and benefits of stem cells found in umbilical cord blood are clear; cord blood collection saves lives today and medical researchers are exploring new uses for umbilical cord blood stem cells for tomorrow, including diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
Baby cord combinations
During banking, Processing of cord tissue cells can be extended to 1 million cord tissue cells Or 50 million cord tissue cells also. So, more the number of cell concentrations, more will be the stem cells, more we are benefited in future.
Peristem Tissue Stem Cells
Peristem exclusive new service represents a new source of stem cells that have been found in the tissue surrounding the blood vessels of the umbilical cord. These specialized cells are the fundamental building blocks that could regenerate structural tissues such as bone, cartilage, muscle and heart. These cells have also been shown to decrease inflammatory reactions and to be especially beneficial in treating autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, Diabetes type I and Crohn’s disease. In addition, Peristem has the potential to enhance current cord blood treatments.
Adult Stem Cells
Adult stem cells have been identified in many organs and tissues, including brain, bone marrow, peripheral blood, blood vessels, skeletal muscle, skin, teeth, heart, gut, liver, ovarian epithelium, and testis.
They can be growing in large quantities in cell culture and to manipulate them to generate specific cell types so they can be used to treat injury or disease. Some examples of potential treatments include regenerating bone using cells derived from bone marrow stroma, developing insulin-producing cells for type 1 diabetes, and repairing damaged heart muscle following a heart attack with cardiac muscle cells.
Wharton’s Jelly Stem Cells
The Wharton's jelly of the umbilical cord contains mucoid connective tissue and fibroblast-like cells. These cells have multilineage potential and that, under suitable culture conditions, are able to differentiate into cells of the adipogenic and osteogenic lineages. These findings may have a significant impact on studies of early human cardiac differentiation, functional genomics, pharmacological testing, cell therapy, and tissue engineering by helping to eliminate worrying ethical and technical issues.
Placental Stem Cells
Placental stem cells provide almost all the life supports to keep a baby alive. After birth it has been found to give rise to more number of stem cells as compared to embryonic stem cells.
Menstrual Stem Cells
Stromal stem cells derived from menstrual blood exhibit stem cell properties, such as the capacity for self-renewal and multipotency menstrual stem cells have an extra-ordinary improvement over the umbilical cord blood cells. They have a rapid growth rate.
Tooth Stem Cells
Dental stem cells are cells obtained from tooth pulp generally from babies or from wisdom teeth. This has been found to produce bones, cartilage, and muscle cells if cultured.
