After blood stem cells that were taken from the umbilical cord to grow tissues and organs, dental stem cells are now being used. Stemede biotech, a Chennai-based company, inaugurated its two connect centres at Dr Vivek Saggar's clinic - Dental Care and Cure Centre and Dr Vikas Jindal's Jindal Smile Clinic on Friday.
Shailesh Gadre, MD and CMD of Stemede Biotech, said, "The stem cells taken from the umbilical cord cure blood related disorders and the dental stem cells can re-generate tissues and organs, and hence can help a person to get relief from damage of cartilages, heart muscles and liver. The tissue will be couriered to the lab in Chennai".
He added that so far they had more than 1,000 customers across the country, and out of them five were from Ludhiana. So they planned to open a connect centre in Ludhiana.
