Amniotic Membrane (AM) and Amniotic Fluid (AF), are harvested at caesarean section. AmnioWell is a sterile filtered amniotic fluid allograft, which may be used by physicians to protect and cushion, provide lubrication and modulate inflammation. This placental derived privileged fluid has been shown to have many components for tissue regeneration.
Branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology which deals with the "process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function.
Growth factors are proteins that may act locally or systemically to affect the growth of cells in several ways. Various cell activities, including division, are influenced by growth factors. Cytokines are a family of low-molecular-weight proteins that are produced by numerous cell types and are responsible for regulating the immune response, inflammation, tissue remodeling and cellular differentiation. Target cells of growth factors and cytokines are mesenchymal, epithelial and endothelial cells. These molecules frequently have overlapping activities and can act in an autocrine or paracrine fashion. A complex network of growth factors and cytokines guides cellular differentiation and regeneration in all organs and tissues.
Amniowell is used physicians in a number of different ways. This fresh isolated placental derived protein matrix has over 300 sterile filtered growth factors. PRP is compromised of less than 10 autologous growth factors that are as old as the patient.
Amniowell contains isolated protein growth factors. These birth derived healing proteins support the building blocks of life. Protein structural tissues may be used by physicians to protect and cushion, provide lubrication, and support. Your physician can advise if AmnioWell is right for you.
