Cryopreservation of Umbilical Cord Tissue

Why are Umbilical Cord Tissue Cells important?

  • Wharton’s jelly in the umbilical cord tissue is rich in Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
  • MSCs are responsible to produce necessary cells for bone, muscle, cartilage, nerves and connective tissue. If there is an injury in muscle, bone, cartilage and nerve cell, they can repair. 
  • When MSCs come to an injured or burned place, they can repair this region. 
  • MSCs can regulate the immune system. This is a very important function. They are used for prevention of Graft versus host Disease (GvhD) in patients subjected to blood, tissue and organ transplantations. Owing to the fact that MSCs regulate the immune system deliberately, rejection of the transplanted tissue gets difficult when MSCs are transplanted to patients.
  • Also, through MSCs regulate immune system, researchers reported important results for the treatment of Type-I diabetes, Romatoit artrit, Multiple sclerosis (MS),Systemic lupus erythematosus and Osteogenesis imperfecta. 
  • Researchers have important results for the treatment of Cerebral palsy, Otism, Alzheimer and Parkinson disease. Also, studies on cardiovascular diseases, hearing loss in children and regenerative medicine have encouraging results.
