It seems that stem cells can now be harvested from menstrual blood.
Don’t say, “Eeeeiww;” this is important.
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.
The C’elle kit includes easy-to-follow instructions and everything you’ll need for the collection and transport of the specimen to their state-of-the-art laboratory for processing, isolation and cryo-preservation — including one year of storage. It (currently) is $99 per year after that, but that’s a small price to pay for possible help in treating such horrors as diabetes, stroke and heart disease, neurological disorders, osteoporosis, spinal cord injury — who knows what else?
Findings indicate that the cells found in your own menstrual blood may even help family members, including your children.
