Adult Adipose Stem Cells

Adult adipose stem cells are collected via a mini liposuction procedure and bone marrow cells are aspirated from the hipbone. Bone marrow stem cells have a superior ability to repair and differentiate into ligaments, cartilage and bone. On the other hand, adipose stem cells have far regenerative properties to make new blood vessels, a process that is essential for oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues.

Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the body after embryonic development, that multiply by cell division to replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissues. Also known as somatic stem cells (from Greek Σωματικóς, meaning “of the body”), they can be found in juvenile as well as adult animals and humans.

Scientific interest in adult stem cells is centered on their ability to divide or self-renew indefinitely, and generate all the cell types of the organ from which they originate, potentially regenerating the entire organ from a few cells.

Unlike embryonic stem cells, the use of adult stem cells in research and therapy is not considered to be controversial, as they are derived from adult tissue samples rather than destroyed human embryos. They have mainly been studied in humans and model organisms such as mice and rats.*
