Frequently Asked Questions
Still have questions?
Here are a few of the questions people frequently ask about Celltex stem cell banking and therapy.
If you don't see your question here, view our full list.
- Why should someone bank his or her stem cells?
While you may not have a condition that requires immediate treatment with stem cells, it’s smart to plan for the future. As you age, illness and the natural processes of aging can reduce the number of stem cells available. While older cells can still be viable and useful, generally, the younger you are when you bank, the more efficient, active and mobile your cells are.
- How often do I need to receive therapy?
This is dependent on individual conditions. Our client services department and your doctors will work with you to determine the best timeline for your individual therapy schedule.
- Are my cells eligible to be used for therapy?
The earlier you bank your stem cells, the more efficient, active and mobile they are to use in case of future emergency, illness, injury or accidents. Banking your cells now provides the opportunity to utilize your younger, healthy cells later in life.
- Where do stem cells come from?
There are stem cells in practically every tissue of your body, but not all stem cells are the same. At Celltex, we focus exclusively on a type of stem cell called mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs can be found in practically every tissue of your body and are most readily taken from bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, placenta and fat. You can learn more about stem cells on our Stem Cells 101 page.
- Is stem cell therapy safe?
Dozens of clinical trials conducted by researchers in more than a dozen nations have demonstrated the safety of using MSCs and, in particular, those obtained from fat, and hundreds of preclinical animal studies have confirmed the same findings. You can learn more on our Stem Cells 101 page.
