Scientists Conclude No Living Cells in Birth Tissues

Consensus Statement on Aggressive Marketing of Birth Tissues as Stem Cell Therapies Final Published Feb 18 2019 v2 (pdf)


Autologous (Patient-derived) Tissues are the ONLY SOURCE that Provides LIVING/FUNCTIONAL STEM CELLS

With Stem Cell Scientists with over 15 years experience of treating patients with stem cells, we’ve analyzed nearly everything that can affect stem cell viability and functionality. With our proprietary stem cell therapies, we do all the things necessary to maintain the highest viability and functionality of the stem cells from start to finish in order to maximize their regenerative potential for patients. We also add a considerable amount of growth factors to enhance their regenerative potential even more. This can provide patients with the best chance at a long term clinical improvement. 

All of this plus a quick turnaround time provides for the best Regenerative Therapy leading to better, more consistent and longer term clinical results. No matter what source you obtain the stem cells from, if you process, sterilize and freeze them and then ship them around the country, the cells are going to die off in a very big way. 

Multiple studies have concluded that stem cells derived from adipose tissue and bone marrow can differentiate into cartilage, bone, and other soft tissues.

Umbilical/Amniotic/Placenta Products DO NOT Contain Living Stem Cells

Scientific Research analyzing umbilical cord, amniotic and placenta "stem cell" products have concluded that these products do not contain living stem cells.

Some clinics are pushing these "stem cell" products but unfortunately there are no living stem cells in these products. In fact, if these products did contain living cells we couldn't use them since they would be from a donor. Clinics can't use donor derived living stem cells in the United States. BE AWARE of the BAIT & SWITCH tactics that these clinics use. Umbilical cords themselves do contain stem cells but the Umbilical cord products these clinics inject into patients DO NOT so these clinics show patients studies that use actual umbilical cord stem cells but have nothing to do with the actual product they inject into patients. The umbilical cord products that are injected into patients have been sterilized, frozen and are shipped overnight to clinics leaving no viable cells left for patients. 

There are NO STUDIES showing that the umbilical or amniotic products these clinics use have created any new tissue for patients. There are numerous studies showing autologous or patient-derived stem cells have healed & repaired tissue and improved joint structure. 

Unfortunately even a lot of physicians are unaware of these facts. Be sure that the provider you choose has a stem cell scientist that has analyzed the actual products that are being given to patients.

Adipose (fat) Tissue is the Richest Source of Stem Cells in the Body

Adipose tissue contains up to 500x's more stem cells than bone marrow and many millions more than umbilical cord, placenta or amniotic fluid products.

Stem Cells Die Off When Outside of the Body and When Frozen

Stem cells start to lose viability when they are outside of the body...they are like a "fish out of water". Freezing stem cells also decreases stem cell viability. Be sure you receive freshly isolated stem cells that have never been shipped or frozen!

Autologous Tissue Samples Can Be Harvested in a Minimally Invasive Procedure

Autologous tissue can be safely and easily extracted from patients in a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure doesn't even require stitches and requires minimal recovery time. 

Traditional Procedures Like Arthroscopic Surgery & Cortisone Shots Provide No Lasting Pain Relief

Published in BMJ by an expert panel that reviewed 12 clinical trials and 13 observational studies, concluded that arthroscopic surgery for degenerative knee arthritis and meniscal tears resulted in no lasting pain relief or improved function. Another study published in JAMA by researchers at Tufts Medical Center found that the repeated injection of a corticosteroid (cortisone) resulted in greater loss of knee cartilage and no significant difference in knee pain compared to patients who received a placebo injection.
