ADULT Stem Cells

HEMATO runs the largest clinical processing and CRYOstorage facility for Adult Stem Cells in the country with inhouse expertise for both HSCs and MSCs including the state-of-the-art equipment, processes and procedures, both, globally practiced and those developed inhouse as proprietary advanced capabilities with a few awarded patent in India, USA and UK.

We all our made up of cells – Post our birth, our growth is determined by the activities of our stem cells – the ADULT Stem Cells. Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the body after development. Also known as somatic stem cells, they are the start point from where all differentiated cells are produced by cell division to replenish dying cells and regeneration of damaged tissues for all body organs, visible and inside us, as also the bones giving us shape and the blood that flows through us. It is these two main characteristics of the Adult Stem Cells that make them of real interest to us. First - They have the ability to divide or self-renew indefinitely, and Second – they can generate all the cell types of the organ from which they originate, potentially regenerating the entire organ from a few cells.

Ethically, the use of human adult stem cells in research and therapy is not considered controversial, very unlike the embryonic stem cells, as adult stem cells are derived from adult tissue samples rather than human embryos.

The function of adult stem cells becomes impaired with age, and this contributes to progressive deterioration of tissue maintenance and repair. The concept of CRYOstorage of Healthy Adult Stem Cells is gaining ground across the world to enable a person infuse his or her own cells into the body when the need arises to tackle a disease or medical condition that can be benefited from such infusion.

It is, therefore, very important for all of us to understand about Adult Stem Cells and the need for maintain them in a Healthy State for a Healthy Life. There is a continuous effort among the medical researchers to continue to decipher newer information about them every day. The medical advancements cover a wide spectrum of benefits that have started to impact our daily life. The advent of Regenerative Medicine, Personalised Medicine and Precision Medicine are some of the newer medical domains resulting from such ongoing advancements. Medical Advancements

Researchers are actively working on 1000s of clinical trials to identify multiple benefits and there are 100s of procedures which are already approved for use of adult stem cells. Among the major types of adult stem cells, the Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs) and Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are of importance based on their existing use both, for treatment and research. They, respectively, address the requirements of disease management and regeneration of blood related systems and non-blood related systems of the human body.

The use of HSCs is highly relevant in the Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) procedures which are considered life saving for those with cancers of blood, a few autoimmune and rare medical conditions. New areas are regularly getting identified that can benefit from HSCT procedures. HEMATO HSCT

MSCs are preferred for managing GVHD – Graft vs Host Diseases, a recurring condition post Allogeneic HSCT in which the transplantation is from the sample taken from a donor and not the patient. They are also allowed for use for various medical conditions based on specific conditions determined by respective regulatory entities. HEMATO MESEN
