What is a Stem Cell?

Where do they come from?

Stem Cell is an advancement in regenerative medicine.  Stem Cells are made from human amniotic membrane and fluid.  These amniotic tissues, or allographs, are transplanted to provide protection and support for native tissues in the body.

Amniotic tissues contain a unique mix of bioactive substances, such as collagen, cell adhesion molecules and growth factors recognized as important in the wound healing process.  Published studies on the benefits and efficacy of amniotic tissue in wounds dates back over 100 years.

Amniotic tissue has reported anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fibrotic properties.  Amniotic tissues are also thought to have "immune privilege", reducing the risk of adverse immune reactions.
