Wharton’s Jelly Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Brain & Body Health Center & Regenerative Medicine utilizes umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells specifically derived from the Wharton’s Jelly.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells Are Important Because…
Among many other things, mesenchymal stem cells are known to have three very important properties:
- Help reduce inflammation
- Modulate the immune system and
- Secrete factors that helps tissue to regenerate
Because umbilical cord derived stem cells are less mature than other cells, the body’s immune system is unable to recognize them as foreign and therefore they are not rejected. Thousands of patients have been treated with umbilical cord stem cells and there has never been a single instance of rejection. These stem cells also proliferate more efficiently than “older” cells, such as those found in the bone marrow and therefore, they are considered to be more potent.
We have chosen to use stem cells derived from a donor (host) from an umbilical cord. These specific stem cells are harvested by volunteer donors who are screened for disease, drug use, and psychological health issues. These cells have the greatest likelihood of producing an exceptional results for many reasons.
Why we selected umbilical cord derived stem cells for a number of reasons:
- They contain the most potent mesenchymal stem cells available and therefore garner the best regenerative results.
- It is the safest stem cell therapy option and does not require surgery.
- There are no negative side effects and the cells are undifferentiated, therefore the body does not reject them. In fact, these cells have been used for over thirty-five years to help reduce the chance of organ transplant rejection.
- Zero age = longest telemere length
- Removal of red blood cells and Class 1 and Class 2 antigens.
- Processed and delivered according to FDA guidelines of all tissue used for healthcare purposes (like blood transfusions).
A Powerhouse of Untapped Potential
Wharton’s jelly is a gelatinous substance in the umbilical cord that provides cushioning and support to the umbilical veins and artery. Also known to be a rich source of cytokines, growth factors, proteins and mesenchymal stem cells.
All which are the functional factors involved in the reconstruction, repair, and protection of human tissue.
What are mesenchymal stem cells (MSC’s)?
In scientific terms, they are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including cartilage, bone, and muscle. Multipotent implies “unlimited potential” and they are progenitor cells, so they have gene activation potential to differentiate into discrete cell types, but divide a limited number of times. This is naturally occurring built-in safety to prevent undesired cell division.
How do they work?
Simply stated, cord derived stem cells have an innate intelligence and activate the body’s own self-healing mechanisms. They seek out inflammation and degenerations – They go where your body needs them to go and become what your body needs them to become. They are the building blocks of all of the tissue and organs in the human body. In other words, they give your body a boost of fresh, very young stem cells to help with regeneration. Our stem cells age with us and we lose a significant percentage over time. That’s why at about age 35, we can’t recover like we used to.
What do mesenchymal stem cells do?
Seek out degeneration
They build, repair and grow new tissue
They are effective in reducing inflammation and pain
They help modulate the body’s immune responses
Safe & Regulated
Umbilical cord stem cells reside in the umbilical cords from healthy newborn babies and healthy mothers. Umbilical cord derived stem cells, like all post-natal cells, are categorized as “adult” stem cells. The umbilical cord tissue is donated by pre-screened healthy mothers and healthy babies in the United States. We abide by all of the most stringent FDA and medical guidelines. Your safety, results and comfort are our top concern.
We aim to provide the most effective regenerative treatments to reduce suffering and minimize medication or surgery for our patients.
