C’elle is a service dedicated to providing women with a safe and non-invasive method of collecting and preserving stem cells found in her menstrual fluid each month. These stems cells are preserved with the hope that they can be used in future medical treatment and therapies.
Thanks to C’elle’s exciting new research, menstrual fluid is shown to contain self-renewing cells that multiply rapidly and can differentiate into many other types of stem cells such as neural, cardiac, bone, fat, cartilage and possibly many others. These vital menstrual stem cells are considered viable because they have many properties and characteristics similar to both bone marrow and embryonic stem cells.
In fact, stem cells from menstrual blood may possibly be used in the future to treat a variety of life-threatening and debilitating medical conditions such as diabetes, stroke and heart disease, as well as neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's, osteoporosis and spinal cord injury. Additionally, C’elle has found menstrual blood to show great potential for future therapies such as in sports medicine or cosmeceutical treatments, such as anti-aging therapies.
With C’elle’s revolutionary collection process, menstrual blood can easily be collected in a C’elle issued menstrual cup, which is done in the privacy and comfort of one’s home. C’elle enables even the busiest of women to engage in the collection process in a way that is both convenient and efficient.
C’elle’s state-of-the art laboratory processes each specimen and then uses a technique called cryo-preservation (stored at a low sub-zero temperature) to preserve and store these abundant stem cells for an indefinite amount of time.
C’elle’s ongoing research is supporting promising findings including preliminary research that suggests that in addition to potential use by the donor, these stem cells may possibly be used as well by other family members who are genetically related to the donor, such as a parent, sibling or child.
