Stem Cells May Benefit Stroke Patients

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of CryoCell International. All opinions are 100% mine.

In the United States, stroke is the third leading cause of death and disability in adults in the United States and it has been discovered, according to the 'Stem Cells and Development' article that thrombolytic therapy only benefits approximately 2 percent of the ischemic stroke patients. The article suggests, as determined by a study, that menstrual blood-derived stem cells may be a potential source for stem cell therapies in stroke and other central nervous system disorders.

Even though this sort of therapy is still in its experimental stages of treatment for neurological disorders, many believe this to be a viable option. “Transplantation of menstrual blood-derived stem cells, either intracerebrally or intravenously and without immunosuppressant,
after experimentally induced ischemic stroke in adult rats also significantly reduced behavioral and histological impairments compared to vehicle-infused rats. Menstrual blood-derived cells exemplify a source of ‘individually tailored’ donor cells that completely match the transplant recipient, at least in women.” The possible benefits of menstrual blood for stroke patients includes behavioral recovery including asymmetry and coordination as well as  improvement in motor and neurological impairments

Advancement such as these make a huge difference in patient recovery. Cryo-Cell is in collaboration with researchers world-wide on pre-clinical studies of Célle for potential future therapies. These therapies may be able to treat diabetes, breast cancer and wound-healing, just to name a few. Published research regarding Célle stem cells have revealed that the cells have demonstrated the potential to transform into many other cell types for future regenerative therapies.

Those interested can read more about C'elle in 'Medical News Today'. Also, Célle is being offered for $399, which is a $100 discount on the $499 retail price, and includes collection, processing, testing and the first year of storage at $399. To take advantage of this discount, which is for a limited time, use code CLSTR.
