Umbilical Cord / Placental stem cell storage

The umbilical cord and placenta were once regarded as waste, but now it is found that they contain a large amounts of mesenchymal stem cells , which can treat more than 100 diseases, so they are known as the "golden resource of stem cells" by the medical community.

Umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells show a good potential for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, hematological diseases, neurological diseases, Hepatic diseases and other diseases. [1], because of their rich sources, they have broad clinical application prospects [2] . Moreover, umbilical cord MSCs are ideal seed cells for tissue-engineered, which can be used to regenerate tissues and organs in vitro or in vivo for the clinical treatment [3].

Compared with BMSCs, placental MSCs have the advantages of strong proliferation ability, large number[4], not easy to aging[5], high safety, and easy to obtain. Placental MSCs also have characterized of low immunogenicity, immunomodulatory, multi-directional differentiation, paracrine, and damage chemotaxis, and their acquisition, experimental and clinical application do not involve ethical issues [6]. Years of research have shown that placental MSCs have played an important role in cardiovascular diseases, pulmonary diseases, musculoskeletal diseases, Hepatic diseases and other scientific research, [5], have gradually become the seed cell with broad application prospects.

It can be said that storing umbilical cord / placenta stem cells is equivalent to leaving a precious “medical treasure house” for children and their families. Dongguan Life Bank is a clinical-level comprehensive cell bank with international quality standards, which can provide cell storage services such as umbilical cord / placental stem cells.
