Banking stem cells is the most affordable lifetime value that someone can present to their kids

Stem cells are distinguished from other cell types by two important ways. Firstly they are unspecialized cells capable of renewing themselves through cell division, sometimes after long periods of inactivity. Under standard conditions, they can be induced to become tissue or organ specific cells. In some organs, such as the gut and bone marrow, stem cells regularly divide to repair and replace worn out and damaged tissues.
In other organs, such as pancreas and heart, stem cells only divide under special conditions. Given their unique regenerative abilities, stem cells offer new potentials for treating diseases such as Diabetes and Heart disease. 
Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the blood during early life and growth.

Cord blood, umbilical cord tissue, dental pulp, adipose tissue and bone marrow are rich source of stem cells. 
As a result, patients who receive stem cells from sources are less likely to reject the transplantation. Stem cells obtained from above mentioned sources had been successfully used to treat more than 70 different diseases.

Diseases and conditions where stem cell treatment is being investigated include:

  • Diabetes
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Osteoarthriti
  • Stroke and traumatic brain injury repair
  • Learning defects 
  • Spinal cord injury repair
  • Heart infarction 
  • Anti-cancer 
  • Baldness
  • Replace missing teeth
  • Repair hearing
  • Restore vision
  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
  • Crohn's disease
  • Wound healing
