How CReATe goes one step further: Peristem
CReATe’s exclusive Peristem™ technology allows us to extract the MSCs from the cord tissue prior to banking.
Most other banks simply collect and bank minced up cord tissue. They do not isolate and bank the mesenchymal cells — we do!
What are Mesenchymal stem cells?
Mesenchymal stem cells or MSCs are a different type of stem cell that is found in the tissues surrounding the blood vessels of the baby’s umbilical cord. These cells are the building blocks of the structural tissue (bone, cartilage, muscle, and fibrous tissues) of our body.
What are the benefits of MSCs?
MSCs could be used in the treatment of conditions such as:
- Degenerative arthritis
- Heart disease
- Traumatic injuries
- Birth defects
- Liver disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Autoimmune diseases (such as Crohn’s disease or rheumatoid arthritis)
Together with cord blood stem cells, they could enhance the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma and other diseases.
