Cell therapy (also called cellular therapy or cytotherapy) is therapy in which cellular material is injected into a patient; this generally means intact, living cells. Some types of cell therapy are used to fight or prevent disease.

Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cell
Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells are derived from the umbilical cord and the placenta and are donated by mothers of normal healthy live birthed babies. This cord blood contains predominantly Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs) and some MSCs. MSCs are capable of replacing the body’s defective “connective tissue matrix,” which when healthy is a natural interconnected system of Collagen, Growth Factors, and bioactive molecules that provide the infrastructure, integrity and regeneration of the body’s various tissues. These components participate in an elaborate cellular signaling system for repair and regeneration.
Umbilical Tissue Stem Cell
Flowable Umbilical Cord Tissue is considered by thought leaders in biomedical research to hold the promise of innovation in regenerative medicine. These sources contain extracellular matrix (ECM) structural healing components, Stem Cells (MSCs) and growth factors for the efficient repair and healing of injured or degenerated tissue through the replacement of cells which are identical to the original tissue. The cells in the Wharton’s Jelly of the cord contain Adult Stem Cell (MSCs) and have shown the ability in studies to evolve into tissue cells. The ECM contains a high concentration of collagens, providing an effective biomechanical scaffold, containing various growth factors & connective proteins.
Amniotic Fluid Stem Cell
Amnion tissue is micronized into a flowable from Placental products from healthy live birthed babies. Amniotic tissue flowables promote healing with anti-inflammatory properties (Cytokines & Growth Factors, Exosomes, micro-RNA, etc.) which may limit the development of fibrotic scar tissue formation.
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, treatments are a medical wonder. During the procedure, doctors take a sample of the patient’s blood and treat it with concentrated platelets in a product called PRP. The treatment is then injected into certain areas of the body, where it delivers fresh oxygen and plasma to the organs and other parts of the body. This biological agent stimulates healing and sends platelets to a wounded area to speed up the process. Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, treatments are a medical wonder.

You may have heard celebrities talk about their experiences with platelet rich plasma on television, espousing its many benefits. However, this isn’t a treatment for the rich and famous only. The PRP Los Angeles’ New Life Solutions office can offer has a number of wellness benefits, including:
- Skin rejuvenation therapy in the form of a PRP facial
- Hair growth stimulation
- Joint damage repairs (in areas such as the knee, hip, ankle, shoulder, elbow, and vertebrae discs)and more
The treatments for PRP Los Angeles patients prefer are not only utilized for cosmetic and personal reasons but also for medical purposes as well. It can be thought of as a treatment that has uses that are both curative and proactive or prevention-based in nature. Taking PRP treatments may improve physical output and athletic ability and give a patient a boost in much-needed energy.
Autologous Adipose-Derived Stem Cells
Adipose tissue, like bone marrow, is derived from the embryonic mesenchyme and contains a stroma that is easily isolated. Preliminary studies have recently identified a putative stem cell population within the adipose stromal compartment. This cell population, termed processed lipoaspirate (PLA) cells, can be isolated from human lipoaspirates and, like MSCs, differentiate toward the osteogenic, adipogenic, myogenic, and chondrogenic lineages.
Bone marrow Stem Cells
Bone marrow is the sponge-like material that is found inside of bones. This material contains Mesenchymal stem cells for MSCs that can regenerate tissue, as well as immature cells called blood-forming stem cells, which divide to form more blood-forming stem cells. They can also form into white blood cells, red blood cells, or platelets. Bone marrow stem cells can be used to help restore stem cells that have been damaged.
Obtaining bone marrow, often called harvesting, is done with general anesthesia or regional anesthesia. Needles are inserted over the hip bone or the breastbone to draw the marrow out of the bone. This procedure usually takes about one hour. The harvested marrow is then processed and can be preserved using cryopreservation to keep stem cells alive until they are needed. There is minimal risk associated with donating bone marrow, since such a small amount of bone marrow is removed. The process of obtaining bone marrow stem cells is done by your healthcare team, and is not conducted at new life solutions.
Bone marrow stem cells are classified as mesenchymal stem cells, which can differentiate into cells that belong to the musculoskeletal system. They can help to form ligaments, articular cartilage, tendon, trabecular bone, and part of the bone marrow. Because of this, and because bone marrow stem cells divide frequently, it is a great option for treating damaged tissues.
