Areas of application for stem cells

Stem cells are described as "biological gold". In medicine, their therapeutic application, e.g. for malignant tumours or for diseases of the haematopoietic system, has already become a routine lifesaving procedure in many cases.

Increasingly growing application possibilities are standing out in the area of so-called regenerative medicine (cultivation of tissues and organs). Stem cell therapies are thus currently the subject of intense medical research in the areas of Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer’s, strokes, diabetes or heart attacks. Umbilical stem cells have nothing to do with embryonic stem cells.

Furthermore, gene and immunotherapeutic approaches are future concrete application possibilities for stem cell technologies.

Stem cells represent hope and security for your child. Today, for the first time, there exists the possibility to isolate the body’s own umbilical cord stem cells and to store them for later use.

Umbilical stem cells are an autologous donation. In other words, a possible later application is primarily intended for the child. However, under certain conditions, a future application for siblings is certainly feasible as well.

Which illnesses may be treated by means of stem cell technologies?

Stem cell therapies for diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s, strokes or heart attacks are currently the subject of intense medical research. The first positive results have already been attained among patients – this chapter will revolutionise medicine in the coming years. For a great many years now, the use of stem cells for malignant diseases (tumours, leukaemia, etc.) have become routinely established and are naturally also subject to ongoing further development.
