What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are cells that have the potential to develop into some or many different cell types in the body, depending on whether they are multipotent or pluripotent. Serving as a sort of repair system, they can theoretically divide without limit to replenish other cells for as long as the person or animal is still alive. When a stem cell divides, each "daughter" cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle  cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.

 

What classes of stem cells are there?

 

Embryonic stem cells. Mexico does not approve clinical trials with this type of cells because it has ethical and religious implications.

 

  1. Adult stem cells: in Mexico the only ways to do cell therapy consist in use of autologous and allogenic cells.

 

  • Allogenic cells: this type of cell came from a donator patient that they were in a meticulous protocol of selection like particular age, not family history of cancer or chronic degenerative disease, also not personal history of alcohol, drugs and tobacco users. In general we select healthy, young and sporty donators.

 

  • Autologous: that came from our own body; stem cells are extracted of fat tissue. This type of tissue is rich in the quantity and quality of stem cells. 1 gram of fat tissue contains 500 hundred more stem cells than 1 gram of bone marrow.

 

Clinical trials demonstrate that stem cells that came from fat tissue can regenerate new tissues and also can remove pathological immune response like in autoimmune diseases.
