At THAI StemLife, you can also create a personalized sterile extract from your placenta, frozen in vials with characterized growth factor content for future uses. Placenta has been a traditional oriental folk remedy (1).
We know today that HUPE is a rich resource of various bioactive substances such as RNA, DNA, peptides, amino-acids, proteins, lipids, and enzymes (2).
It demonstrates potent antioxidant properties associated with the protein components, especially alpha-fetoprotein (2).
It contains transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) involved in blood vessel mechanics, and a large number of growth factors (GM/G-CSF, HGF, EGF, PDGF, IGF) that participate in many regenerative processes It promotes increased synthesis of regeneration-related protein factors such as GAP-43 and Cdc (3).
HUPE is rich in cytokines (IL-1, 2, 4) that promote diverse immune system effects (3).
Placental biomaterials are easily accessible and personalized additions to regenerative medicine applications due to their low immunogenicity, positive wound/skin healing characteristics and minimal tissue inflammation (3).
