Stop aging and disease

Have you ever wondered why we age and fall sick?

Our cellular systems age and break down over time. Those effects are felt all the way up through tissues and organs.

Scientists are already using stem cells to treat disease.

The number of diseases we are able to cure and treat is growing every year.

Cells deteriorate over time

Every year that goes by, your cells deteriorate at an increasing rate.

DNA mutations, telomere shortening, atrophy, dysplasia and other irreversible damage make our cells progressively less viable.

Sadly, just when we will need our cells the most – when we age – our cells will be a poor resource to use in regenerative medicine.

Freeze today, plan for tomorrow

Acorn preserves your youngest, best cells today to ready you for the future of regenerative medicine tomorrow.

Scientists can now reprogram adult cells into stem cells. They have already grown tissue and 3D-printed organs in the lab.

Freezing the clock on your cells today will ensure you can leverage them later when you need them the most.

The Future Of Medicine Is Stem Cells

The Future Of Medicine: Stem Cells, Not Drugs

We aren’t made of drugs, we’re made of cells. Stem cells, or stem cells in combination with pharmaceuticals, will be the future of medicine.

Solution To Organ Donor Shortage

… regenerative medicine techniques can be used to generate functional bladders that are durable. … regenerative medicine may one day be a solution to the shortage of donor organs…

Regenerative Medicine: A Strategic Investment

Mayo Clinic has embraced regenerative medicine as a strategic investment in the future of healthcare.

Scientists Are Using Stem Cells To Cure Disease

With over 1,000 clinical trials and over 60,000 patients enrolled, stem cell therapy will soon address everything from Alzheimer’s to diabetes.

Here are a few of these incredible advancements.

Heal Spinal Cord Injury

The Central Nervous System, which consists of the brain and spinal cord, is arguably the most complex of the body. Neural cells have been created from stem cells in a number of pioneering studies with extremely promising results.

Regrow Skin

Some of the earliest and most successful examples in regenerative medicine come from the growth of skin cells used as a treatment for a variety of skin-related diseases and injuries.

Sight to the Blind

Researchers have created sheets of retinal cells from iPS cells and transplanted them into the eyes of a patient with promising results.

Organs on Demand

Teams have recently 3D printed hearts using only human cells. It is achievements like these that are ushering in a new era of organ-level therapeutics.

Stop Alzheimer’s

Thanks to the surge of clinical trials based on regenerative medicine in the last 10 years, scientists are on the verge of being able to stop the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and ultimately reversing its effects.

Repair heart attacks

Researchers are working on procedures to improve heart function in patients who have suffered heart attacks using their own cells.

Reverse Parkinson’s

Scientists can potentially create healthy neural cells in a lab and use them to restore function in the brain of subjects that have been affected by Parkinson’s disease.
