Regenerative medicine is the process of replacing, renewing or engineering human cells, tissues, organs, proteins, etc for the purpose of restoring function and homeostasis in the body. One of the key components of regenerative medicine is the use cell-replacement strategies which usually requires stem cells.
What Are Stem Cells?
These are undifferentiated cells in our bodies that have the capacity to change into any healthy cell in our body. Meaning they can change into skin, bone, heart and muscle cells to name a few. They have the ability to replicate substantially as compared to normal somatic cells such as skin. Stem cells are located throughout our body in almost every organ and tissue such as bone marrow, fat, teeth, muscles, etc. However, as other cells in our body, stem cells also age as we do. That is why our provider uses stem cells from umbilical cord which are young and healthy.
Liveyon’s Premier MAXCB® stem cells are derived exclusively from the umbilical cord after delivery of a baby, which is the safest and least-invasive method of extraction available.
Stem Cells (Liveyon)
Stem cells, like other medical products that are intended to treat, cure or prevent disease, generally require FDA approval before they can be marketed. FDA has not approved any stem cell-based or regenerative medicine products for use, other than cord blood-derived hematopoietic progenitor cells (blood forming stem cells) for certain indications.
