NeoStem's minimally invasive adult stem collection procedure uses the mobilization process to increase the number of stem cells in the blood circulation. Then through apheresis, a painless and safe procedure, the stem cells are separated and collected for storage. The remaining cells are immediately returned to the blood circulation. The collected stem cells are stored in a cryo-preservation tank, and may be used for new regenerative therapies in the future.
ASFA is an organization of physicians, scientists, and allied health professionals whose mission is to lead the field of apheresis through patient and donor care, research, education, and advocacy. The vision of ASFA is to be the pre-eminent forum for the dissemination of evidenced-based knowledge, introduction of new information, and the exchange of new ideas in the field of apheresis medicine. The organization serves as the voice of investigators and practitioners to advance the development and delivery of programs and services in the field of apheresis medicine, benefiting patients, donors, and the general public.
