Translational Research

Medical research with the use of stem cells has been ongoing for over 20 years, but we still have much to learn about the healing effects of stem cell transplant medicine. Some types of stem cell treatments are approved by the FDA, some are being investigated in human clinical trials and some are still in the laboratory. To the doctors and patients that have experienced successful stem cell transplant therapy, we can say congratulations! For the patients on the waiting list to be enrolled in a new clinical trial to cure their disease, we can offer hope!

The CSCC research department has a universal goal shared by many stem cell banks. To provide the highest quality of viable stem cells to treat patients in need. CSCC uses the latest technology to process and store umbilical cord blood, bone marrow, and adipose (fat) tissues.

The donated cord blood is processed and stored according strict cGMP /cGTP standards, tested for infectious disease, HLA genotyped and listed on a national registry. Physicians are able to search through the database to locate a genetic match for their patients. It is unknown how exactly long the stem cells can be cryogenically stored, but the new state-of-the-art collection and storage techniques, many experts believe that they could be stored indefinitely! For information on clinical trials using cord blood stem cells, log on to www.clinicaltrials.gov.

Bone marrow and adipose tissues are processed and stored according to specific proprietary SOPs for independent transplant specialists and qualified translational stem cell researchers.
