HPCs are cells contained within bone marrow, cord blood and peripheral blood that are capable of reforming the blood and immune system (red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets) and they are sometimes referred to simply as blood stem cells.
Blood stem cell transplant with HPCs isolated from bone marrow, cord blood and mobilized peripheral blood have proven to be effective treatments for dozens of diseases for decades.
- Bloodborne cancers - Leukemias, Lymphomas
- Autoimmune disorders - SCID, Adenosine Deaminase Deficiency
- Metabolic disorders - Gaucher Disease, Niemann-Pick Disease
- Non-malignant blood disorders - Polycythemia Vera, Sickle Cell Anemia
Please note, that the HPCs contained within the PBMCs preserved from your blood collected during the GoodCell process are currently of insufficient quantity to to be useful for blood stem cell transplant procedures. However, our ability to expand the number of cells in the laboratory increases every year, and it is likely that we will be able to create sufficient cells for therapy in the future from your sample.
