Regenerative Medicine

Stembanc-Cord Blood Stem Cell Tissue


Regenerative medicine is a new, rapidly growing field whose goal is to save and improve lives by repairing or replacing cells, tissues or organs that have been lost or damaged due to disease, injury, or the effects of aging. The applications using stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood are playing a prominent and increasing role in these efforts due to their unique proliferative properties, plasticity characteristics, (or their ability to transform into other tissue types), and the fact that they are relatively immunologically naïve (that is, more transplantable than more mature cells).


The new Center for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, like Stembanc, is located in the greater Cleveland, Ohio area.
