As with any medical treatment, quality of recovery after a traumatic physical event such as myocardial infarction (heart attack) is linked to speed of care delivery and dose of medication.
With Oristem®, quick and effective access to stored samples will add to the effectiveness of therapies. Our stem cell donor card is designed to be carried in your purse, bag or wallet and will be used to alert your medical professional to the treatment advantage that you have chosen. It offers simple, direct contact to our storage centre, 24/7 and just like an organ donor card, can be used to help you in an emergency.
Additionally and perhaps more significantly, we offer the largest number of stem cells collected when compared to any other method, in fact we are able to collect and store at least 15 times more cells, often 40-50 times more.
Stem cells are the building blocks of life. As we grow they produce growing tissue. As we age, the rate of repair unfortunately slows or becomes less efficacious.
A body of evidence exists to imply that stem cells are less effective in older populations. It makes sense therefore to bank cells when one is fit and healthy.
The process of aging is complex. Numerous processes exist, most of which are still not fully understood. Examples of certain activities that cause aging include; a reduction in adequate cell replacement, build-up of proteins or other molecules that damage cells and loss of function of certain cell processes due to various external stimuli.
The search for curing degenerative diseases is ongoing with many research projects across the world. Stem cell research aims to learn more about the disease process and try to gain therapeutic outcomes. Therefore, stem cell therapy aims to replace diseased or non-functional cells with purposeful cells.
Stem cells are the building blocks of the human body, creating tissues and organs when the body grows.
