Stemade Biotech launches Dental Stem Cell Banking in Chandigarh.

India, Nov. 28 -- Stemade Biotech, a pioneer in Dental Stem Cell Banking in Asia region and India's first player in Dental Stem Cell Banking today announced the launch of its operations in Chandigarh after its successful launch in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore. Stemade Biotech offers first of its kind technology, enabling the extraction of viable stem cells from the milk teeth and wisdom teeth and having them carefully preserved in special cryogenic storage facilities. In contrast to umbilical cord blood banking where stem cells are obtained from the cord of a newly born child, this innovative option allows an individual a larger window to harvest and store stem cells that have the potential to shield individuals from critical health concerns that may arise in the future. The launch of this innovative European technology, licensed by Stemade for the Indian and Pan Asian markets, will help in building an entire generation that will help them to face their future confidently.

According to the Founder & Managing Director Mr. Shailesh Gadre, "We have been receiving positive response from our other centers which motivated us to expand our reach to Chandigarh. We have already identified our potential partners, who are fully equipped along with well trained technical expert team, boosting our confidence in extending our service successfully". Further adding he specified that; "Cord blood banking market, where the opportunity is available only at birth, is currently poised at a range of 80k - 1 Lakh, however with dental stem cell, the market is positioned five times more than that.Therefore we are quite optimist about reaching a lakh registration by 2013".

Dr. Anand Sajnani, Pediatric Dentist, Associated with Stemade Biotech said, "Dental Stem cells are a potent source of mesenchymal (tissue-related) stem cells whilst umbilical cord blood provides hematopoietic (blood-related) stem cells. Hematopoietic stem cells have the potential to treat only blood related disorders such as leukemia etc. whereas, mesenchymal stem cells have potential applications in all other tissues of your body such as brain (Alzheimer's, Parkinson's), eye (corneal reconstruction), liver (cirrhosis), pancreas (diabetes), bone (fractures, reconstruction), cartilage (osteoarthritis) etc. For all those people who have missed the opportunity of storing umbilical cord blood while delivery, dental stem cell banking provides a remarkable option. Dental stem cells provide a wonderful opportunity, not only to children but also to teenagers and adults to bank their stem cells,"
