Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) May 6, 2008
Connectionsforwomen.com is showcasing BioEDEN, a remarkable bio-science company which is the first in the world to collect, assess and cryogenically store living tooth cells which then hold the potential to save a life by way of treatment for a life-threatening disease or debilitating condition that may occur in the lifetime of the donor or may be used also to treat a blood relative.
Stem cells are the building blocks of life, thus making them ideal as a human repair system. They are unique in their ability to differentiate into a diverse range of specialized cells and can develop into functional cells types that make up organs such as the heart, liver, brain and skin. Stem cell therapy has been performed successfully more than 700 times in the United States in the last 10 years to treat diseases such as leukemia and lymphoma.
However, the painful method of obtaining adult stem cells such as from bone marrow, and the ethical issues surrounding the source of embryonic stem cells have slowed progress in the research field of personalized medicine. Overcoming the controversial social and ethical debate can now be put aside. New research has uncovered an abundant and easily obtainable source of stem cell--located in a child's milk (baby) teeth.
"Connections for Women has dedicated a special section for up-to-date stories about people and companies truly giving back to the community" said Genny Esterline, founder and CFO. "Brenda Malone, Gerry Hogan and I truly believe in the power everyone has to give something back, no matter how small, which is one of the reasons for our creating the C4W community - to give back."
A recent example of how stem cells can be saved for future use is the story of Chris Rodriquez. Chris is a 10-year-old boy who was paralyzed from the waist down after being hit by a stray bullet while attending a piano lesson on January 10, 2008. Chris' family hopes that one day the stem cells cryopreserved from his baby teeth today will yield a cure for his paralysis.
