Most of Cellaviva's customers see their stem cell savings as an insurance policy
A sense of security for growing families
If you’re trying to start a family or plan to expand it, you inevitably have an array of opportunities and decisions ahead of you. It’s an exciting but nerve-wracking time for many. You’ll want to know what your options are when it comes to your and your family’s overall health and the healthcare you may need, now and in the future.
Whether you want to save stem cells is one of the decisions you have the chance to make. Saving them is an active choice you must make before you give birth, otherwise they will be discarded with the afterbirth as medical waste.
Stem cell therapy is a well established therapy for many serious diseases and there are thousands of studies underway on new ways to treat currently incurable diseases. There are strong indications that stem cells from the umbilical cord will revolutionise the treatment of degenerative diseases in the future. This applies to a wide range of diagnoses, so the availability of one’ s own or family members’ stem cells is very valuable.
Whether for medical conditions that can occur during pregnancy and childbirth, or for diseases and diagnoses that may develop throughout one’s life. Whatever happens down the road, saving stem cells can enable current as well as future therapies for a variety of diagnoses for the child’s family.
Stem cell therapy today and potential applications
Discover the growing list of conditions, disorders and diseases that can be treated with stem cells.
The list of diagnoses that can be treated with stem cells continues to grow. Doctors are finding that stem cells have the potential to help treat a wide range of diseases by generating new healthy cells and tissues.
Below is a list of diseases and conditions for which stem cells are already an established treatment as well as diagnoses that are evaluated in clinical trials.
For those diagnoses where stem cells are being used in treatment in clinical trials, this means that stem cell treatments appear to be beneficial, but which have not yet been adopted as standard treatment. For some of these diseases, stem cell transplantation only slows the progression of the disease, but does not cure it. For other diseases, stem cell therapies may contribute to a cure, but further research is needed to determine which patients are the best candidates for stem cell therapy, the optimal dosage of stem cells, the optimal method of cell administration, etc. The effectiveness of treatment for a particular disease is dependent on a number of variables: the duration of the patient’s illness, the severity of the disease, the age of the patient, the presence of chronic conditions, hereditary predisposition, lifestyle, etc.
The aim of the list is to show the wide range of current and future therapies that stem cells make possible.
