Regenerative medical therapy involves using stem cells to restore and establish normal function. And at Synergy Integrative Medical Clinic, it involves using It also involves using blood cells from umbilical cords to help your body replace, re-engineer, or regenerate damaged or injured cells, tissues, or organs.
Unlike bone marrow and other blood transplants, cord blood doesn’t have to be an exact match, making cord blood an excellent option when no donor is available. Moreover, cord blood is also more readily available than bone marrow or blood from an unrelated donor, allowing transplants to get performed within a shorter period.
Though it takes around two weeks to locate, transfer, and thaw preserved cord blood unit, finding a suitable bone marrow donor takes over two months.
Cord blood also transmits fewer viruses and rejection is less likely than when bone marrow and donor blood gets used.
Traditionally, umbilical cords get disposed of shortly after birth. However, the blood in an umbilical cord, known as cord blood, is rich in stem cells. Recent medical advances revealed that the stem cells found in cord blood help treat several disorders.
Umbilical cord blood gets collected, processed, and preserved shortly after clamping. There’s currently a public reserve of over 150,000 units available to treat patients who need transplants.
Cord blood currently helps treat nearly 70 diseases, including numerous leukemias, lymphomas, and anemias, as well as Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (SCID). In fact, these multipotent stem cells also show promise in the treatment of additional diseases and disorders.
Although regenerative therapy for cellular and self-repair is available today, scientists are working on new types of regenerative therapies that create new body parts from cells and tissues. However, this work is still relatively new.
