What is ‘Stem cell Banking’?
Stem cells have an established place in medicine and their use is developing at an unprecedented pace.
Having a stem cell match for the person requiring treatment is key to the success of treatment or therapy. BioEden have made sure that through their four membership choices every parent will be able to give this potentially life saving gift to their child.
If your child needed stem cell therapy or treatment, how would you find a match? And what are the implications of having stem cells from a donor?
It has been known for many years that human bone marrow contained a type of stem cells known as Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s).
A few years ago it was discovered that MSC’s are also found in teeth. These are superior to those found in bone marrow in every measurable aspect and extracting them is a non-invasive process unlike bone marrow aspiration. These cells have the ability to form many types of tissue including muscle, cartilage, nerve, bone, liver, insulin secreting cells, fat, and others.
BioEden was founded to make this technology available by extracting and banking those valuable cells for the future therapeutic use.
