Expanding Stem Cell Growth

In a recent CryoCell Press Release , Cryo-Cell International, Inc brought about new and exciting news concerning stem cell research. It is already known that the stem cells present in umbilical cord blood can be used to treat more than 70 life threatening diseases, such as leukemia and sickle cell anemia. Since 1988, cord blood stem cells have been used in over 10,000 transplants. The need for stem cells and more research in this area has never been more pressing and necessary. One of the problems that we face is that umbilical cord blood can only be collected at birth and does not usually contain enough stem cells for transplanting purposes. The research by Cyro-Cell International showed that by mixing menstrual blood stem cells with the umbilical cord blood, they could increase the number of functional stem cells in the cord blood. Cyro-Cell International believes that further studies could show whether or not menstrual blood is the answer to our need of stem cells. Back in 2007, Cyro-Cell International came up with a way for women to cyropreserve their menstrual blood stem cells that could possible be used on her or on a first degree relative in the future. This is really one of the most exciting advances in modern medicine ever. Too many people die from terrible diseases everyday, so there is no time like the present to help fight these diseases. You should check out the link and read more about stem cell research.
