MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS AT WORK: EMERGING TREATMENTS

Mesenchymal stem cells have already proven to be a powerful and potent platform for developing treatments. As you are reading this, scientists are studying the role of these amazing cells in treating conditions such as type 1 diabetes, spinal cord injury, stroke, myocardial infarction (heart attack), corneal damage and neurological diseases like Parkinson's, to name just a few.

HUNDREDS OF CLINICAL TRIALS

Hundreds of clinical trials are underway, demonstrating the use of mesenchymal stem cells to treat diseases, to heal injuries, and to grow replacement tissues like bone, nerve, muscle, and blood vessels. In fact, mesenchymal stem cells are currently being tested clinically to treat autoimmune diseases like Crohn's and GVHD as well as in regenerative applications like bone and cartilage repair and cardiac muscle repair after myocardial infarction.

REGENERATIVE MEDICINE

This exploding field of research, called Regenerative Medicine, holds the promise that your child, utilizing a toolkit of their own stem cells harvested and stored early on, will live a life of unprecedented wellness. Regenerative medical therapies could become common treatments used alongside more traditional ones.

Imagine a future where serious conditions like type 1 diabetes are treated with a combination of drugs and regenerative medicine. Imagine skin and bone grafts created from the patient’s own cells. Imagine treating age-related conditions like arthritis, dementia, and Alzheimer’s using cells from the patient’s teeth that were banked when they were young.
