Umbilical Cord Matrix/Wharton’s Jelly Allograft
Umbilical Cord Matrix/Wharton’s Jelly Allograft contains growth factors and an abundant amount of live nucleated cells, including mesenchymal stem cells that secrete anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties that optimize the cellular environment in a joint to assist in advanced healing.
Donors are selected following an intensive and complete medical review and pre-natal evaluation prior to delivery. The stem cell treatments we use are derived exclusively from the umbilical cord after delivery of a baby, which is the safest and least-invasive method of extraction available.
All donors go through a rigorous screening process, as determined by the FDA and American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).
Umbilical Cord Matrix mesenchymal stem cells are immune privileged because they do not express HLA-DR, therefore, there is no chance of rejection.
It has been noted in several peer-reviewed scientific articles that umbilical cord tissue has better immunomodulatory properties than with bone marrow or fat-derived stem cells.
Aiding the optimal healing environment within the body is the essence of regenerative medicine, and the notion of supplementing what already exists within the body is what makes birthing tissue the ideal source for regenerative products. Specifically, the Wharton’s jelly layer of the umbilical cord as well as placental tissue.
Researchers have long known that the Wharton’s jelly layer of the umbilical cord is an incredibly rich source for the growth factors needed to regenerate tissue.
We like to think of regenerative medicine as cooperative medicine: a way of working with the care continuum and your body.
The body’s regenerative process requires a dynamic environment consisting of a variety of growth factors, cytokines, scaffolding, hyaluronic acids, mesenchymal stem cells, and chemokines.
So in the event of injury, the body relies upon more than just a stem cell. It needs the complex rally of many cells and proteins to help start or aid the regenerative process and get it back up to speed. That’s where regenerative therapy comes in, replenishing what the body needs, where the body needs it, to better maintain the whole.
The regenerative products we use are ethically sourced from donated birthing tissues such as umbilical cords and placentas from healthy full-term deliveries. Comprehensive medical and social histories of the donor are obtained and tissues are procured, processed, and tested to exceed standards established by the FDA.
