REGROW – RESTORE - RENEW

What is a Stem Cell?
Stem Cells are the building blocks of Life, they are found in the body’s organs, tissues, blood, and immune system and have the ability to regenerate into additional stem cells or differentiate into specialized cells, such as nerve or blood cells. This remarkable ability makes them invaluable in medical treatments. When transplanted into a patient’s body, stem cells can repair or replace the patient’s damaged or diseased cells, greatly improving the patient’s overall health

SAFE
Pro-athletes, weekend warriors and every day patients have been successfully treated with stem cells. Stem cells have become a very feasible option for the treatment of many disorders. In fact, recent scientific advances have allowed researchers, doctors, specialists and surgeons to investigate the potential of stem cells in the regeneration of degenerated discs, healing of spinal cord injuries, helping bone growth in spinal fusion, pain management and treatment of immune disorders. Stem cells have also been found to be a wonderful addition for use in aesthetic & reconstructive therapies.

EFFICIENT
The goal of stem cell therapy is to replace or replenish diseased tissue through the localized differentiation of adult stem cells which advances the healing process or restores the tissue physically. Advances in medical science have evolved stem cells therapies to induce the expression of selective growth factors, cytokines, interleukins and other peptides to further aid in healthy rejuvenation, restoration, and reconstructive therapies.

Our Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC’s) are obtained from Human Umbilical Cord Tissue (HUCT) and are much younger and heartier than stem cells surgically harvested from a patient. Our stem cells are not afflicted with the same issues the patients have with their current medical condition, enabling our young, hearty stem cells to work better for the patient! Amazingly enough, research shows younger stem cells actually “RECRUIT” the patient’s existing stem cells and influence them to act younger.

Are Stem Cells Approved By The FDA?
In the past there has been some controversy and misunderstandings around the use of stem cells. We are in a new era of stem cells in the United States. Unfortunately, those old misunderstandings have caused some people to be confused about the use of stem cells in general, as well as, the type of stem cells we are using at FWHA are from our FDA registered cord blood stem cell bank. Our stem cells come from donated umbilical cords of healthy live births. Good tissue practice regulations, donor screening, and tissue testing practice regulations are used to process the stem cells. No babies are harmed in this process.

After the cord blood stem cells are collected, they are processed, frozen and can be safely stored for years. The method of freezing is called cryopreservation and is very important to maintain the integrity of the stem cells. Our stem cells are taken out of -80 C freezers and shipped using dry ice. Our stem cells are delivered to your doctor in frozen vials on dry ice. You will work with your doctor to determine the protocol that will be best for your situation.

The FDA has allowed the Tissue Banks to regulate the HUCT treatments. In the past there has been some controversy and misunderstandings around the use of stem cells. Stem cell therapy is a natural treatment. Natural treatments are not approved by the FDA.

How Does A Stem Cell Work?

  1. CELL FUSION – transplanted cells fuse with host mature cells to enhance repair of injured cells. Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism. 2009: (29); 480-485
  2. ANGIOGENESIS – formation of new blood vessels. This process involves the migration, growth, and differentiation of endothelial cells, which line the inside wall of blood vessels. The process of angiogenesis is controlled by chemical signals in the body. J Tissue Eng Regen Med 2008; 2:184-189
  3. PROLIFERATION – an increase in cell number caused by cell growth and division into two identical daughter cells. Production of cells identical to the parent is termed 'self-renewal.' Unlike other cell types, stem cells have the ability to replicate many times.
  4. NEURAL RESTORATION – enhances homeostasis by attracting support cells and delivering therapeutic proteins. Molecular & Cellular Neuroscience 1999;13:450-464
  5. MIGRATE – home to the site of pathology or injury. Therapeutic cells employ intergins to stick to the site of injury and turn on cellular and molecular repair machinery. Int. Journal of Cell Biology 2009; May 1-9.
  6. IMMUNE PRIVILEDGED - the system self-regulates to adjust immune responses to adaptive levels, tolerance reduction, reduction of transplantation and rejection complications. Blood 2005; 105:1815-1822
  7. RECRUIT – cellular stimulation is enhanced via paracrine and autocrine factors. Signaling occurs to attract endogenous stem cells. Circulation 2004; 109:1543-1549.
  8. DIFFERENTIATE – stem cells differentiate into the desired cell, releasing neurotrophic (nervous tissue) growth factors or immunomodulatory substances to promote survival of damaged neurons. Science 1999; 284: 143-147.

Advantages of Huct Stem Cells

  • Stem cells are much younger.
  • The volume of stem cells is higher and do not require surgery to extract and harvest.
  • The recovery time is minimal.
  • More stem cells
  • Lower Cost
  • More efficient
