How Much You Know About Stem Cell?
We always hear about stem cell and stem cell research. But how much actually we know about it? Stem cells are the master cells of the human body. They have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body. Because stem cells are so versatile, they could potentially be used to repair and replace damaged human tissue, serving as a important repair system.

A better understanding of normal cell development will allow us to understand and perhaps correct the errors that cause human medical conditions such cancer or birth defects. By now, stem cells in bone marrow are currently the only type of stem cell commonly used to treat human diseases.

But lately, I read a news at CNNMoney.com which is about stem cell harvested from women's own menstrual blood. I know, some people might be uncomfortable about this research and new technology, but for me, it is definitely a great news since another new way is found to obtain stem cells from women and they can be used to treat a number of possibly life-threatening diseases that she, a parent, a sibling or even her children may face in later years.

Let's know more about the new technology of C'elle from the press release below and have a better understanding how safe and easy the method of collecting and preserving stem cells found women's menstrual fluid each month.

Taking Control: Future Therapies for a Host of Serious Diseases May Be Found in Women's Menstrual Blood

OLDSMAR, Fla., July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- With today’s hectic lifestyle, where most women are juggling careers, family, relationships, and a host of activities, 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. But what most women don’t know, is that the key to treating a number of possibly life-threatening diseases that she, 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 be found within her own body -- in vital stem cells, which can now be harvested from her own menstrual blood.

Now, thanks to the revolutionary research and technology of C’elle, a service dedicated to providing women with a safe and easy method of collecting and preserving stem cells found in her menstrual fluid each month, even the busiest woman can take control of her future, right in the privacy of her own home. With C’elle’s non-invasive collection process, menstrual cells are processed and cryo-preserved (stored at a very low temperature) for potential cellular therapies that may be used in the future. These self-renewing cells one day may even be used for sports medicine or cosmeceutical treatments, such as anti-aging therapies.

"C’elle enables and empowers a woman to take control of her future health, and possibly of those genetically closest to her, in a fast, painless and stress free way," said Michelle Kay, Marketing and Sales Manager for C’elle. "We live in exciting times, as science and technology are discovering how extremely valuable menstrual blood stem cells really are, and the enormous treatment potential they represent for future therapies. C’elle’s ongoing research is supporting these promising findings."
