GeneXSTEM Umbilical Cord Tissue Product
GeneXSTEM™1 is derived from Wharton’s Jelly of the non-embryonic umbilical cord and is intended for homologous use. Wharton’s Jelly contains mesenchymal stem cellular products, thousands of growth factors, cytokines, long-chain hyaluronic acid and provides cushioning, protection and structural support within the umbilical cord. It is known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Some patients and providers are choosing human umbilical cord tissue over NSAIDs, corticosteroid injections and platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy. GeneXSTEM™1 is processed using proprietary methods to preserve the structural integrity of Wharton’s Jelly.
1 GeneXSTEMTM Injectables are minimally manipulated human tissue allografts derived from umbilical cord tissue for homologous use. They comply with the HCT/P 21 CFR 1271 Regulations and Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act.
Advantages of GeneXSTEM
Derived from the powerful Wharton’s Jelly of the human umbilical cord, known for its growth factors, high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, structural proteins, cytokines, and mesenchymal stem cellular tissue.
Exciting alternative in regenerative medicine therapy
Can be used widely within orthopedic sports medicine and pain management practice
Provides structural support for tissues and joints
Characteristics of Wharton’s Jelly
Wharton’s Jelly contains mesenchymal stem cells, growth factors, cytokines and other essential components needed to create life.
As a mucous connective tissue within the umbilical cord, it consists of high amounts of extracellular matrix components, which are mainly collagen, hyaluronic acid and proteoglycans. 2
WJ tissue yields the highest concentration of allogeneic MSC’s when compared to adipose tissue. 3
WJ may promote increased healing. 4

USUmbilical Cord Allograft Suspension
Stem cellular products can provide: tissue repair and regeneration; anti-inflammatory effects and immunomodulation. Recent medical literature also suggests that beneficial effects of stem cells are also through their ability to communicate or signal to other cells, which is known as paracrine actions. “Stem cells can secrete potent combinations of trophic factors that modulate the molecular composition of the environment to evoke responses from resident cells. Based on this new insignt, current research directions include efforts to elucidate augment and harness stem cell paracrine mechanism for tissue regeneration.”1

USUmbilical Cord Allograft Suspension
GeneXSTEM™ umbilical cord tissue allograft is shipped overnight frozen directly to your medical practice.
GeneXSTEM™ is processed from donated human tissue from full term deliveries and is regulated as a human cell, tissue, or cellular or tissue-based product (HCT/P) under 21 CFR Part 1271 and Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act. It is intended for homologous use and is minimally manipulated. The FDA defines Homologous use to mean “the repair, reconstruction, replacement, or supplementation of the recipient’s cells or tissues with an HCT/P that performs the same basic function or functions in the recipient as in the donor”.
