What are stem cells?
We all come from a single stem cell the fertilised egg which then divides to from the actual human body. Undifferentiated cells are found throughout your body, in some adult tissues, such as bone marrow, muscle, and brain, where discrete populations of adult stem cells generate replacements for other cells that are lost through normal wear and tear, injury, or disease. Stem cell can duplicate and differentiate.
- Self-renewal is needed because if stem cells did not copy themselves you would run out of them very quickly
- Differentiation is needed because specialised cells are used up, damage or die all the time during our life. Specialised cells cannot divide or make copies of themselves, but they do need to be replaced in your body to carry on working.
For example, whilst you read this sentence your body needs to produce 2 million new red blood cells.
Where do Stem Cells Come from?
Stem cells harvested from fat tissue from you abdominal region or your thigh and / or bone marrow aspirate taken from your hip, both under local anaesthetic.
The procedure is usually no more or less unpleasant then a visit to the dentist.
