Of the many different types of adult stem cells that work to keep all the different cells of our body healthy, there is one particular type of stem cell called “mesenchymal stem cells”. Mesenchymal stem cells are multipotent stem cells that support the mesenchymal tissues of our body. They have the ability to differentiate into bone cells, cartilage cells, tissue cells, muscle cells, and fat cells. Also, like other adult stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells replicate and multiply.
While mesenchymal stem cells can be found throughout the body, the majority are contained in the superficial layer of our body fat. 2 ounces of fat may contain u to 50,000,000 mesenchymal stem cells while 2 ounces of bone marrow contains as few as 10,000 mesenchymal stem cells.
Two areas that contain the largest quantities of mesenchymal stem cells are bone marrow and adipose tissue, (body fat). 2 ounces of bone marrow can yield as many as 10,000 viable mesenchymal stem cells. However, the processes and techniques we have developed at Pangenics Regenerative Center allow us to harvest up to 50,000,000 viable mesenchymal stem cells from only 2 ounces of body fat.
Learn more about how we harvest millions of your own mesenchymal stem cells and immediately use them for joint and spinal pain conditions and to enhance certain plastic surgery procedures.
In May of 2015 an article was published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information website; a division of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The article is titled: Body Management: Mesenchymal Stem Cells Control the Internal Regenerator, and offers extensive details about mesenchymal stem cells and how they function.
