Welcome to the CellSure Parent’s Blog
When you enrolled with CellSure to preserve your baby’s placenta, you stored a wide variety of stem cells that are found in the placenta.
After childbirth, your baby’s placenta traveled to the CellSure laboratory in a temperature-controlled shipping container. At the laboratory, technicians working in sterile conditions processed the tissue of the placenta to release stem cells. These stem cells were tested for viability and then preserved indefinitely in cryogenic freezers. Each unit in the freezer is labeled with a barcode that can be confidentially matched to your baby.
The placenta holds blood stem cells just like the “umbilical cord blood” that some companies offer to preserve. The placenta also contains mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), skin stem cells, and stem cells that form blood vessels. CellSure preserves all of these in one step.
There are currently 80+ diseases treated with umbilical cord blood that are approved as a standard of medical care. Dozens more therapies are being developed in human clinical trials that rely on the various types of stem cells found in the tissue of the placenta.
Should a member of your immediate family develop a medical condition that is treated with these stem cells, you have the peace of mind of knowing that your child’s cells are preserved as a form of biological insurance at CellSure.
CellSure’s unique placenta stem cell banking costs only $199 per year. Compare this to cord blood banks that charge about $1000 in the first year, and have annual storage fees of at least $150 for cord blood, plus another $150 if you also stored cord tissue.
In future episodes of this blog, we will bring you updates about medical research with stem cells collected at childbirth and other relevant news. Visit our website to contact CellSure
