What is
Placenta Tissue?

The placenta is an integral component of your baby’s life support system. The placenta is responsible for transferring oxygen and nutrients between mother and baby, but its usefulness does not stop at birth. Stem cells from the placental tissue, have tremendous potential for use in regenerative medicine.

Why Is It Valuable

The placenta is a rich source of Mesenchymal stem cells and mesenchymal-like stem cells, which are multipotent in nature. This means they have the ability to differentiate into specialized cells with specific functions. Scientists have successfully repaired bones, cartilage and fat tissues using MSCs.

The Potential

Placental tissue stem cells are currently being used in more than 100 regenerative medicine clinical trials worldwide. These studies include treatment for conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and spinal cord regeneration.
