Stem cells are uniquely "unprogrammed" cells that give rise to all other cells in our bodies. They are important because they offer a potential source of replacement cells and tissues that are able to treat a myriad of disorders including neurologic diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, spinal cord injury, and stroke, tissue loss or injury, heart disease, diabetes and arthritis.
Millions of Americans have chosen to improve their appearance through liposuction, a safe and predictable procedure. Until now, plastic surgeons have simply thrown away the aspirated tissue. However, research performed by StemSource founders has demonstrated that this tissue is a rich source of adult stem cells with enormous potential to treat a range of clinical disorders.
From this original observation, StemSource Inc. has developed revolutionary devices and techniques to harvest stem cells from fat and demonstrated the ability of adipose tissue-derived stem cells to differentiate into nerve, muscle, bone, cartilage, and fat. Clinical applications of these cells are in development.
The Company's pioneering stem cell banking service offers the opportunity for existing plastic surgery patients to bank their stem cells for later use, when they are needed. These banked stem cells, frozen in suspended animation, are kept safe at StemSource's state-of-the-art facility. The cells are stored exclusively for the particular patient who banked them.
