Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)
Pure life delivered from Mother to Child.
What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)?
MSCs are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, come from the donated umbilical cords of healthy, full-term deliveries, and can be obtained in 2 different forms: Cord Blood or Wharton’s Jelly. Donated MSC’s derived from the umbilical cord after a live birth are more robust, younger, and contain a greater level of the growth factors and cytokines necessary for tissue regeneration than MSC’s from other sources. The applications of Cord Blood MSCs and Wharton’s Jelly MSCs vary dramatically as Wharton’s Jelly contains an even greater degree of cellular matrix and growth factors than Amnion/ECM.
Structural Wharton’s Jelly:
The umbilical cord, often considered the cord of life, is largely composed of Wharton’s Jelly. The cushioning and protective elements from Wharton’s Jelly consist of a network of structural proteins, pericytes, MSCs, cytokines, chemokines, growth factors and components, such as collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA), which work together to dampen the physical stresses encountered during development.
Cord blood refers to blood from the umbilical cord and placenta. Cord blood contains a mixed population of cells, including hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) and mesenchymal stems cells (MSC). These cells have the capacity to self-renew, release growth factors, and further develop into more specialized cells. These cells have also been associated with contributing to tissue homeostasis, anti-inflammatory responses, and antioxidant effects. This collection of cells can work together to provide a synergistic effect to offset the naturally occurring processes that typically derive from age and environmental factors.
