EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS

Optimally Embryonic Stem Cells are harvested after the 4 to 5 days of divisions from the blastocyst left over from in vitro fertilization.

Many companies throughout the world offer Adult Stem Cells or Umbilical Cord Stem Cells however it is globally known that Embryonic Stem Cells (known as ESCs) are the most powerful cells and provide the best results. Stem cells are controversial due to some being derived from a blastocyst, which is a five day old embryo, however stem cells can also be obtained through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).


What are Embryonic Stem Cells?

Within 24 hours of a sperm fertilizing an egg, the egg begins dividing into two cells, then four, and so on, until it becomes a hollow ball of cells called a blastocyst. This process is then interrupted for the harvest of ESCs. If it is not interrupted within three weeks, blastocyst cells begin to differentiate, starting with nerve cells. Depending on where or when they are harvested, the rejuvenation potential of Stem Cells will differ. Optimally Embryonic Stem Cells are harvested after the 4 to 5 days of divisions from the blastocyst left over from in vitro fertilization. The blastocyst of 150 or so cells is then extracted and cultured in petri dishes. The 150 cells will divide into millions of ESCs which have the capability of becoming any type of cell, these are known as pluripotent. The cultured ESCs are then mixed with plasma as the final step before infusion.

What are the differences between ESCs, Adult and Umbilical Cord Stem Cells?

Adult Stem Cells are harvested from grown organs such as bone marrow, blood or fat tissue of the patient, and re-injected. Studies have concluded that adult stem cells are only able to develop into a limited number of cell types related to the tissue that the stem cells originally came from, in other words, they are multi-potent. Umbilical Stem Cells are adult stem cells taken from a baby’s Umbilical Cord. Risk of rejection is usually greater when using Umbilical cord stem cells. ESCs are the only pluripotent Stem Cells. They are also the only stem cells to produce anti-cancer proteins. Autologous cells have proven to be the best Stem Cells available, the ultimate healing and rejuvenating option, however the technology to produce them is time and labor extensive and requires highly skilled techniques.
