Stem Cell Banking - Amniotic Fluid/Amniotic Sac
Amniotic fluid and Amniotic Sac (Placenta) banking is the latest feather in the cap of Ree Laboratories Pvt. Ltd. after years of exhaustive research and numerous scientific trials by its research division. The company further announces that this is the only company in India to have successfully launched AFSC and ASSC banking along with the ubiquitous cord and cord blood banking protocol. Banking these cells along with cord and cord blood encompasses the entire gamut of stem cell banking options available during childbirth.
Stem cells from amniotic fluid and amniotic sac have the unique ability to differentiate into muscle, adipose tissue, cartilage, bone, blood vessel, nerve etc. These cells provide a valuable resource for cell, organ and tissue repair or regeneration.
These stem cells sourced from amniotic fluid are called AFSC / ASSC (Amniotic Fluid Derived Stem cells / Amniotic Sac Derived stem cells). They could be an intermediate stage between embryonic stem cells (currently banned by ICMR) and adult ones. These cells are capable of extensive self-renewal, a defining property of amniotic stem cells.
Childbirth is the most valuable source of amniotic fluid and amniotic sac. The chance for a perfect match is also possible because of its most primitive nature.
Ree Laboratories has its (patented) unique, proprietary processing protocol to carefully isolate, purify, culture, amplify and store stem cells from amniotic fluid and amniotic sac in GLP and GMP conditions.
AFS/ASS cells have many advantages over conventional stem cells:
- They are easily obtainable during caesarean/normal delivery.
- As they double every 36 hours they may be grown to generate large quantities of stem cells.
- They do not produce tumors (hence preferred over embryonic stem cells).
- Specialized cells generated from AFS/ASS cells include all 3 types of cells that exist in the developing embryo i.e. ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm. Hence, these stem cells can potentially differentiate into “any” cell, organ or tissue of the body.
- As with embryonic stem cells, AFS/ASS cells also have the potential of generating every type of adult cell.
In nutshell, amniotic fluid and amniotic sac stem cells are the finest source of stem cells presently available and should not be missed by expectant parents.
ReeCure, an indispensible arm of ReeLabs associated with sophisticated state-of-the-art stem cell therapies for a number of degenerative disorders provides cutting edge patient cure and care proprietary treatment protocols. It employs the latest, most effective techniques by various experts and specialists considered leaders in their fields.
Hence, it is also possible to isolate these cells and instantly use them in treating numerous degenerative disorders through ReeCure. Therefore, a combination of ReeCord and ReeCure seems a distinct option in optimizing the use of these cells.
Therapies using these magical cells are bound to assume pole position in regenerative medicine in times to come.
