New UK life sciences company PharmacellsTM Ltd have been awarded a license by the Human Tissue Authority (HTA) to offer the first approved adult stem cell banking service in the UK. Oristem® is a concept in adult stem cell collection and storage that doesn’t require pharmaceutical intervention and helps “insure” future health of the patient.
An 80ml blood sample is all that is required and can be taken in the comfort of your own home, or at professional medical clinics across the UK.
Current research on heart attack patients treated with therapeutic cells has shown these treatments are most effective when administered as soon after the lesion has occurred.
Having your stored stem cells available at all times, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year gives an advantage that has previously been unavailable and is a vital part of the new wave within personalised, regenerative medicine.
