What Are Pluripotent Stem Cells?

Stem cells are now seen as natural assets with a powerful potential to support healing and improve the quality of life for people suffering from a wide variety of conditions.

You can find stem cells occurring naturally in various parts of the body, including the bone marrow. However, at the Stemwell Clinic we prefer to use stem cells extracted from the umbilical cord tissue of healthy, full-term, volunteer donors.

These are known as mesenchymal stem cells, and one of the reasons we favor using them in our stem cell treatments is that they are pluripotent.

What are pluripotent stem cells? They are cells with the ability to differentiate into more than one type of cell. Stem cells are undifferentiated but, once applied to the human body, they can develop into various types of tissue.

Pluripotent stem cells have the potential to differentiate into a particular wide range of tissue. Indeed, they can generate more than 200 types of cell, which means they can make a difference for people with an extremely wide range of conditions.

What Are Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells?

As well as the pluripotent stem cells that occur naturally in the body, it is also possible to create cells with the same capabilities. The technology to achieve this has been developed in the last couple of decades, and the cells thus created are called induced pluripotent stem cells.

Like naturally occurring stem cells, this type of cell can develop into a variety of tissue types. These include skin, the nervous system, organs such as the liver and pancreas, and tissues such as bone, muscle, and cartilage.

Clearly, this represents an interesting development in regenerative medicine. Given the abilities of stem cells to generate healthy tissue, it is inevitable that further research will be carried out in the years ahead to enhance the creation of induced pluripotent stem cells.

At the Stemwell Clinic, the mesenchymal stem cells we use have the potential to deliver a wide range of positive supportive outcomes for patients with a host of medical conditions and injuries.

The pluripotent qualities of the stem cells we harvest from donors give our trained and highly professional team the ability to create healthcare programs that support healing and improve the quality of life for people who come to us for help.
