Many stem cell therapy providers still harvest mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow which involves drilling a hole usually in the patient’s hip bone and using a syringe to extract bone marrow. Most of the stem cells found in bone marrow are hematopoietic stem cells that become red blood cells, platelets, or white blood cells. Mesenchymal stem cell counts in bone marrow are less than 10,000 cells per 2 ounces of bone marrow.
Purchasing and using cryopreserved, (frozen) umbilical cord stem cells is another popular option with many stem cell therapy providers. However, there is a possibility of genetic and epigenetic changes to occur in cryopreserved cells and the freezing and thawing process itself can lead to low cell survival rates
At Pangenics Regenerative Center our stem cell physicians use a proprietary 38-step process to prepare millions of live mesenchymal stem cells harvested from a patient’s adipose tissue, (body fat). This method of harvesting eliminates any possible issues with genetics, greatly reduces or eliminates recovery times and produces up to 50 million live, viable mesenchymal stem cells that can be immediately injected into the areas targeted for therapy.
