Cell therapy is defined as the administration of live whole cells or maturation of a specific cell population in a patient for the treatment of a disease. Historically, blood transfusions were the first type of cell therapy and are now considered routine. Cell therapy strategies include isolation and transfer of specific stem cell populations, administration of effector cells, induction of mature cells to become pluripotent cells, and reprogramming of mature cells.

Stem cell technologies and advancements are being made on an almost daily basis. The world’s scientists and medical experts have been studying, and using, stem cells treatments and stem cell therapy to treat a wide range of illnesses, injuries and disease processes, including but not limited to:
- Neurological diseases such as:
- Blood-borne Cancers such as:
- Organ Cancers such as:
- Heart Disease processes such as:
Congestive Heart Failure
- Musculoskeletal Conditions and Injuries such as:
Spinal cord injury

Joint injuries and diseases
- Hormonal, Immune and Circulatory Issues
Auto-Immune diseases such as Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and Muscular Dystrophy
Chronic infections such as Tuberculosis and Hepatitis C
- Cosmetic and Reconstruction Treatments
Breast reconstruction treatments
Cord Blood Banking
Cord Blood Banking involves collecting blood left in your newborn’s umbilical cord and placenta and storing it for future medical use. Cord blood contains potentially lifesaving cells called stem cells (The stem cells in cord blood are different from embryonic stem cells). Baby’s cord blood could be kept in a family cord blood bank for the family’s use.
Cord blood stem cells have been used successfully to treat more than 70 different diseases, including some cancers, blood disorders, and immune deficiencies. Among these are leukemia, plastic anemia, thalassemia, Hodgkin’s disease, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
