What are stem cells?

Definition of Stem Cells

Stem cells are biological cells that have the potential to develop into cells of various tissue structures that make up the body.
>Also, stem cells help regeneration of damaged tissues or cells, and have the ability to infinitely multiply.

Types of Stem Cells

  • Types of Stem Cells
  • Embryonic stem cells
  • Induced pluripotent stem cells
  • Adult stem cells

Stem cells are largely divided into embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells and adult stem cells.
Embryonic stem cells are stem cells that are separated from the embryo after fertilization, and induced pluripotent stem cells have similar properties as embryonic stem cells
but are obtained by injecting genes or proteins into body cells.

Lastly, adult stem cells are derived from body tissues or organs that everyone
already has regardless of their age or gender. They have unique properties based on the original tissue.
Representative stem cell-derived tissues include blood, bone marrow and fat.

Adult stem cells are slightly different in the differentiation ability compared to embryonic stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells, and have very important advantages.
These advantages are as follows.

Advantages of Adult Stem Cells

01

They do not present ethical problems since they are not from fertilized eggs.

02

There is almost no immunorejection because it can be collected and used from autologous cells.

03

There is no possibility of causing cancer tissues.

04

It is relatively easy to collect tissues to obtain stem cells.

Importance of Stem Cell Banking

The storage of stem cells has great significance in the field of regenerative medicine.
This is because the capability to store stem cells promises a healthier future for individuals.
In particular, as you get older, your cells including stem cells in tissues get aged and fewer and their functions are diminished.
Therefore, it is more than necessary to store cells when you're younger and healthier.

Except people with specific diseases that are disqualified for stem cell collection,
stem cells can be stored for all people aged 8 and above, and healthy cells under storage may be used as necessary.
The use of stored autologous stem cells does not cause immunorejection, and can be widely applied to
treat burns, arthritis, bone cell regeneration, Burger's disease, anemia, critical limb ischemia, diabetes, cornea treatment, Parkinson's disease,
Alzheimer's disease, stroke, spine damage, leukemia, various cancers, dermatological diseases and hair loss.

Safety and effectiveness
Our cell banking based on advanced technology is different from the capabilities available when we started out.

Extract cells based on Havard's technology

Stem cells extracted, separated and concentrated using the SmartPReP®2 developed by Harvard University
have superior rates of survival and return, and therefore show excellent effect in quickly regenerating tissues, improving immunity and treating various diseases.
