They are a series of cells present in the organism with total or partial capacity of differentiation to other specific types of cellular tissues and with the property of self-renewal during long periods of time.
There are a multitude of stem cells depending on where they are obtained and their potentiality and ability to differentiate into other cell strains.
The totipotent and pluripotent cells, although with a marked greater capacity of cellular differentiation, carry a series of disadvantages, as its teratogenic capacity and the ethical problems that would entail obtaining them. These aspects make today’s use in the daily clinic not possible.
For this reason, the ones that are most interesting for clinical medicine and the only ones that are authorized for use are adult stem cells, these are those obtained from an adult human (ie adult as the age from birth) and that correspond to those that have a degree of multi-potential differentiation.
Among these we have the ADSC (Adipose Derived Stem Cell), WJSC (Wharton´s™ Jelly Stem Cell), BMSC (Bone Marrow Stem Cell), ESC (Endothelial Stem Cell), DPSC (Dental Pulp Stem Cell), etc. All of them obtained more or less easily and of adult human tissue, with a high capacity of cellular differentiation.
Lyposmol has developed the ADSC SYSTEM® to obtain and concentrate the stromal cells, including ADSC, contained in adipose tissue.
