Placental-Derived Stem Cell Therapy for Premature Babies with Intestinal Disease

Premature babies have a very difficult start to life. Their bodies are not adequately prepared for life outside of the womb and they are vulnerable to a range of illnesses.

One of the most common illnesses suffered by premature babies is called necrotising enterocolitis. It is a life-threatening disease of the bowels, which affects about 10% of all pre-term babies.

Ground-Breaking Clinical Trials Using Amniotic Membrane

The therapeutic value of the placenta’s amniotic membrane has been known for over 100 years, with doctors using it to speed up wound healing. However, many researchers believe that it may be far more useful than previously thought.

There is now evidence to suggest that the amniotic membrane may be used to treat a wide range of conditions including diabetes, brain injuries, cardiovascular conditions, and more. This guide will share more detail on the recent ground-breaking clinical trials involving the use of the amniotic membrane.

Amnion Banking: What are the Important Uses of Amniotic Membrane

The placenta plays an important role in the growth of your baby while in the womb. It is responsible for providing oxygen-rich blood to the foetus, which contains valuable nutrients that are essential for growth. It also removes waste and keeps the foetus safe from disease.

But the placenta’s ability to support life doesn’t necessarily finish after your child is born. Researchers have discovered that the placenta and amniotic membrane both contain powerful cells with regenerative capabilities.

4 Ground-Breaking Clinical Trials Using Placental Cells

Over the past decade, researchers have begun to look more closely at the potential therapeutic value of placental cells. The placenta contains many cells with potential value, including hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), amniotic cells, growth factors, cytokines, epithelial cells and endothelial cells.

The renewed focus on the placenta has already delivered benefits with several ground-breaking discoveries. In this post, we are going to highlight 4 of the most exciting breakthroughs using placenta stem cells which have been made recently.
