Transplanting umbilical cord and menstrual blood-derived stem cells offer hope for disorders
Date:3/7/2011

Tampa, Fla. (Mar. 07, 2011) Transplanting stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood cells and menstrual blood cells may offer future therapeutic benefit for those suffering from stroke, Alzheimer's disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), says a team of neuroscience researchers from the University of South Florida's Department of Neurosurgery and Brain Repair and collaborators from three private-sector research groups, Saneron CCEL Therapeutics, Inc., Tampa, FL, Cryo-Cell International, Inc., Oldsmar, FL, and Cryopraxis, Cell Praxis, BioRio, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Their collective paper outlining the potential benefits of transplanting these stem cells is published in the current issue of Cell Transplantation (20:1), now freely available on line at http://www.ingenta.com/journals/browse/cog/ct.

"Umbilical cord blood cells and stem cells derived from menstrual blood are relatively easy to obtain, appear to be able to differentiate into many kinds of cells, and are immunologically immature, offering them the potential to promote cell survival rather than play a cell replacement role when transplanted," said Dr. Paul Sanberg, Distinguished University Professor and executive director of the Center of Excellence on Aging and Brain Repair at the University of South Florida.

According to Dr. Eduardo Cruz, CEO of Cell PRAXIS BioRio, human umbilical cord blood cells (hUCBs) are limited to collection at the time of birth, but menstrual blood-derived stem cells (MenSCs) could be collected once a month for 40 years from women during their reproductive stage.

"Both hUCBs and MenSCs have been used successfully in laboratory experiments with animal models of diseases," noted Dr. Cruz.

MenSCs have been transplanted into animal models of stroke and have been shown to be able to differentiate into a number of neural cell types. Transplanting hUCB
