In light of the increasing studies and scientific accomplishments, we are now entering into a sort of “biological insurance” time that relies on the preservation of stem cells contained in the amniotic fluid and chorionic villi.
In fact, amniotic fluid and chorionic villi contain multipotent stem cells with an high proliferation and differentiation potential, which makes them able to generate different tissues and organs, hence representing a potential source for treating various disorders through the means of cell therapy and regenerative medicine.
The major advantage of cryopreserving the stem cells contained in the amniotic fluid and chorionic villi is that your sons and daughters will always have a reservoir of their own stem cells. Furthermore, stem cells from amniotic fluid and chorionic villi may also be compatible with siblings and parents, hence allowing the possible use of cryopreserved stem cells to the other members of the family.
For example, recent in vitro studies have demonstrated that stem cells from amniotic fluid are able to reconstruct heart valves, skin, kidneys and other tissues.
Furthemore stem cells from amniotic fluid and chorionic villi in case of future applications will not cause any risk of rejection being autologous and compatible.
