Bone marrow derived stem cells

Clinically most stem cell therapy today in humans is focused on Bone Marrow derived stem cells. These cells are collected from a painful bone marrow aspirate yielding very few stem cells. The stem cells are then cultured and the culture is then expanded to yield enough cells for therapy. This process takes at least six weeks’ time as well as a well-equipped laboratory and skilled laboratory personnel. These are not usually available to most veterinarians.
