What is umbilical cord blood?
Today, there is an intensive development of medical technologies. New methods of treatment are successfully used in the leading clinics of the world. Use of stem cells has become one of the latest discoveries in medicine. What are human stem cells and what are they for?
Stem cells are immature progenitor cells for all body tissues. They can become any mature cell, so they are actively used in various fields of medicine.
The human body consists of many cells. In the process of fertilization, one such cell is able to divide and give rise to new cells. The main stem cell function – genetic code transfer.
Most stem cells are found in the body of children. Older people have less of them.
There are different stem cell types.
Embryonic type is formed at an early stage of fetal development. To get them, you need to destroy the embryo. This is an inhumane way, so these cells are almost never used. Fetal cell type is obtained after abortion.
Most commonly postnatal stem cell type is used. This type of cells has subtypes: hematopoietic, stromal, tissue-specific. Cord blood with progenitor cells is a separate group.
It contains the future cells of the circulatory system and tissues and is suitable for the treatment of blood pathology and other diseases.
A large number of stem cells are derived from cord blood. Blood from the umbilical vein of the child is collected. The resulting biomaterial is stored in a special bank. Obtained stem cells are preserved using liquid nitrogen. In this case, the cell retains its activity.
Stem cell therapy
Precursor cell therapy is gaining popularity in all branches of medicine. Since stem cells are able to be differentiated to any type of tissue, they help in regeneration.
Human stem cells are actively collected nowadays, there are special cryobanks in many countries. After birth, you can save the cord blood with cells for the future baby.
A child may need stem cells him/herself, or he/she can become a donor for another person.
Precursor cells are used in diseases of the nervous system, circulatory system. They are used in case of leucosis, lymphomas, leukemias, mental disorders in a child – autism.
After therapy, the effect and improvement of the patient’s condition is noticeable.
Stem cell therapy is not a panacea for all types of diseases. Like many other treatments, this procedure has contraindications. In our clinic, we use only own stem cells for treatment, which have no contraindications.
Stem cell therapy needs to be taken seriously. Be sure to consult a specialist.
The essence of stem cell treatment is the ability of their reproduction and activation of the growth of other cells in the body. When they enter the body, they activate the immune response and promote the growth of new healthy cells in the damaged organ. As a result, cells are regenerated in the damaged area.
Where patients may be treated by stem cells?
There are cryobanks all over the world where stem cells are stored. Cell Therapy Departments are created.
If you need high-quality treatment at a reasonable price, contact the Mardaleishvili Medical Center. This well-established institution is located in the capital of Georgia.
The clinic is well-equipped. The center together with leading clinics of the world conducts scientific research on the treatment and use of stem cells. The range of diseases that are treated by cell therapy is expanding.
The center has a lot of positive feedback. The treatment of autism is carried out only with own stem cells, as it is safe.
