American CryoStem Corporation (OTCQB:CRYO), announced the launch of its newest adult stem cell and adipose tissue collection center in Bellevue, Washington

A public company doing business of preparing and providing adipose (fat) tissue and adipose derived adult stem cells, American CryoStem Corporation (OTCQB:CRYO), announced the launch of its newest adult stem cell and adipose tissue collection center in Bellevue, Washington. Dr. Fredric Stern will officially launch the new Stern Center Stem Cell Collection Service as the first to provide Adult Stem Cell and Tissue Banking services to the general public in the Seattle, Washington area.

“Having successfully worked with American CryoStem in the past we are truly excited about the official launch of these adipose tissue based services to the general public in Washington. I look forward to working with American CryoStem on educating my patients about the Regenerative Medicine benefits of “bio-banking” and the latest fat transfer cosmetic services now available at the center. I chose to affiliate my practice with American Cryostem because of their thorough scientific approach to stem cell banking and strict adherence to aseptic technique and FDA guidelines,” said Dr. Fredric Stern, the founder of The Stern Center and a plastic surgeon.

John S. Arnone, CEO said, according to a company news release, “We are excited to have a surgeon with Dr. Stern’s abilities and reputation associated with American CryoStem in the Seattle, WA area and look forward to a productive relationship with the entire Stern Center team. We remain committed to our “Gold Standard” clinical laboratory processing and storage reputation and strive to provide the best physician and patient services in the U.S. The newest stem cell collection center in our network represents our commitment to associate with leading physicians in the Regenerative Medicine Industry.”

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are typically the products of adipose tissue-isolated stem cells for regenerative medicine or, in this case cosmetic surgeries. The mesenchymal stem cells can also be isolated from bone marrow or embryos. They secret hormones once introduced into human bodies and help balance cytokines in the blood. It is reported that MSCs help reduce several disease symptoms and, in some countries, are used as “youth fountains” in anti-aging treatment. MSCs can be produced fairly easily, in our hands at least, from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). iPSCs, like embryonic stem cells, can be expanded indefinitely, differentiated into MSCs and all other cell types, and are being tested in various cell therapies including those that are mediated through the MSC stage.
