Stem Cell Bank


This post is a result of the image below (a similar one actually).

So met this guy who was working with Dhirubhai Ambani Life Sciences… And I asked him what does he sell? He said Biological Insurance. And then he was bombarded with a billion questions. Thanks to him, this is one subject that interests me (right now).

So could preserving stem cells save your child’s life?

There’s at least a possibility.  Research in stem cell treatments is the fastest growing field in medicine with good reason.  Stem cell therapies are being used to treat over 70 different conditions from cancer to anemia and with the rate of current research this is only the beginning.  There are companies working on a cure for baldness using stem cell therapies and one UK based firm that plans to have the ability to grow replacement teeth in patients within the next ten years.

Saving a sample of your newborns stem cells may one day be the key to treating any number of conditions, since the stem cell sample is a perfect match and the chance of rejection is minimal.  To top it off, those same cells may be able to save the mothers life or the life of a sibling.

Hence the concept of a stem cell bank.

How? Well, wait for the next post.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
