What are autologous stem cells?

Stem cells are unique to other cells as they have the capacity of self-regeneration by a series of cellular divisions, and to continue until they develop a tissue differentiation, thanks to a characteristic of the cell called plasticity.

The main characteristic of autologous stem cells is that they are extracted from the patient’s body.

Stem cells have three main characteristics:

  1. They can divide themselves giving birth to new copies of themselves
  2. They differentiate into other cell types
  3. Their goal is to colonize, repair and organize new tissues.

Autologous stem cells have the capacity of renew themselves and to renew damaged tissues in different places in the body.
