Two for One: New Stem Cell Research Innovation for Women

While facing the difficult economy and the challenges of managing through tough times, the idea of possibly facing a serious illness in the future is not something that readily comes to mind --especially when a woman is in the prime of her life.

most women are not aware that the key to treating a number of possibly life-threatening diseases that as a parent, a sibling or even her children may face in later years, such as osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, may potentially be found within her own body -- in vital stem cells, which can now be harvested from her own menstrual blood.

C'elle's exclusive and revolutionary service provides women with the unique opportunity to collect and preserve vital stem cells that can be harvested from the body's menstrual fluid during the menstrual cycle. Until now, menstrual blood has typically been discarded as unsanitary waste. However, exciting new research shows that menstrual fluid contains self-renewing stem cells that can be easily collected, processed and cryo-preserved for potential cellular therapies that may emerge in the future. The C'elle menstrual stem cell comes from the uterine lining (endometrium) that is shed as part of a woman’s menstrual period. These menstrual stem cells are unique because they have many properties and characteristics similar to both bone marrow and embryonic stem cells; they multiply rapidly and can differentiate into many other types of stem cells such as neural, cardiac, bone, fat, cartilage and possibly others; demonstrating great promise for future use in clinical regenerative medical therapies. Preliminary research suggests that in addition to potential use by the donor, these stem cells may possibly be used as well to benefit other family members who are genetically related to the donor, such as perhaps a parent, sibling or child.

So how does the C'elle process work?

The C'elle kit includes easy-to-follow instructions and everything required for the non-invasive collection and transport of the specimen to our state-of-the-art laboratory for processing, isolation and cryo-preservation. During the process of cryo-preservation, menstrual stem cells are literally "frozen in time" which enables these abundant stem cells to retain their potency and viability for an indefinite period of time–possibly even decades. Patented technology allows cryo-preserved menstrual blood stem cells to be retrieved and thawed over time. Stem cells from menstrual blood may potentially be utilized in the future to treat a host of life-threatening and debilitating medical conditions such as diabetes, stroke and heart disease, as well as neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's, osteoporosis and spinal cord injury, just to name a few. Cryo-preservation of menstrual stem cells may have the potential to provide women with a broad range of personalized regenerative medicine therapies as well as prospective cosmeceutical applications, such as anti-aging treatments. These potentially beneficial therapeutic treatments may emerge as a result of global research and development in the future. However, realistically, it may take several years for these menstrual stem cells to be developed into potential widely-available commercial therapies.
