Embracing Source of Futuristic Regenerative Medicine Through Menstrual Blood

Women create life; but now they will contribute medically to save lives through the Endometrial Regenerative Cells (ERC) or stem cells harvested from discarded menstrual fluid - known to be the most disgusting phase of woman's life. Menstrual blood, as researchers say, is found to be the most potent source of stem cells so far. The uterine endometrium lining, a rich source of stem cells, is shed in menstrual process every month. In the rebuilding process that ranges over seven days, billions of cells develop creating an almost 5 millimeter-thick lining. These self-renewing cells, also called Endometrial Regenerative Cells, can be developed into other tissues under controlled laboratory conditions. These cells possess multipotent markers similar to stem cells from other sources.
