Our stem cells are taken from the umbilical cord and placenta after a baby is born. It’s non-invasive, painless, and has no effect on either the baby or its mother. Other methods of extraction can be painful and require recovery time for the patient.
Stem cells from an umbilical cord are younger than adult stem cells taken from a patient’s body. That gives them greater regenerative power. They reproduce and grow faster than adult stem cells, which decrease in number and efficiency as the body ages.
Unlike other sources of stem cells that must come either from the patient’s own body or from a family member, stem cells from umbilical cord blood can be used by anybody. There is no matching required and no risk of rejection by the body.
Using cord blood is the most non-invasive and safest process for stem cell therapy, with a low-rate of infection.
