Dubai: NMC Healthcare has entered into a partnership with Cryosave Arabia, the first private stem cell laboratory in the GCC region to provide facility for storing stem cells. Harvested stem cells from the umbilical chord have a great potential for being used for life saving treatments later.

Michael Davis, chief operating officer — NMC Health care, said “We are looking forward to working with Cryosave and are very pleased to be able to offer this new service in our numerous hospitals and clinics across the country. Stem cell storage is an extremely important area of developing technology in medicine and the potential for stem cell use in the future is vast.”

Mai Ebrahim, chief operating officer at Cryosave Arabia, said “We are very excited about this partnership and the prospective benefits it will bring to expectant parents in the UAE. The collaboration between Cryosave and NMC Healthcare will help spread awareness among pregnant women and hopefully lead to a greater number of lives being transformed through curing diseases by use of stem cells.”
