Provia’s dental stem cell storage system Store-A-Tooth has been referred to as a “time machine for stem cells” in a recent video report on on WCVB Channel 5 News.
Provia, which is one of the carefully-selected portfolio partners of Grace Century, has been publicising the many and varied future potential benefits of storing one’s stem cells for many years now, and the video feature details the workings of their revolutionary Store-A-Tooth system and how it can preserve viable stem cells essentially “forever”.
Provia CEO Howard Greenman, who is featured in the article, says that stored stem cells have the potential to be used for “simple things such as inflammation, all the way through to cardiovascular disease, type 1 diabetes and spinal cord injury”.
On Store-A-Tooth, Howard say it is “like a time machine for stem cells, so when you child is 50 or 60 years old, they can rely on their stem cells from when they were 6 or 7 years old”.
Grace Century President and Director of Research Scott Wolf commented “This article is one of the strongest affirmations yet of the potential of stems cells and Provia’s Store-A-Tooth product in future regenerative medicine. We encourage parents especially to consider this option for their children and give them a better chance to being able to successfully tackle potential illness and disease in the future”.
