Potential Clinical Applications of Stem Cell Therapy

There are many types of stem cell therapy and it is becoming a common treatment for some conditions. Stem cell therapy has been accepted as the effective treatments for many blood diseases, certain types of cancers and several other diseases in the U.S. over the last 10 years and it has been used much more frequently in other countries around the world. It is believed that stem cell therapy may eventually offer remedies for brain diseases such as stroke, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases, spinal cord injury, autoimmune diseases, MS, ALS, osteoarthritis , degenerative diseases, and certain forms of cancer and heart disease.

Researchers have found the pulp of some children's primary teeth to contain chondrocytes, osteoblasts, adipocytes, and mesenchymal stem cells. All of these cell types hold enormous potential for the therapeutic treatment of new diseases currently not on the list shown above. Some of the potential applications of this material would be to treat; neuronal degenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrigs Disease); chronic heart conditions such as congestive heart failure and chronic ischemic heart disease; periodontal disease and to grow replacement teeth and bone. One of the most important potential applications using this material is for the treatment of paralysis due to spinal cord injury which has already been done using mesenchymal stem cells from other sources. The application of stem cell therapy to these diseases is currently being pursued by many of the brightest minds at the best institutions around the world and it is our belief that these treatments are on the horizon. Storing these cells for your child is an excellent way to ensure your child's future biological needs can be met. We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity and store your child's cells today.
