Macquarie Stem Cells understands that cellular terminology can be confusing…

We are passionate about ensuring that our patients understand their treatment in full. This means understanding the different cellular components that constitute treatment.

Stromal cells are a combination of stem cells, growth cells and regenerative cells.

Stem cells are cells which do not yet have a ‘specialisation’ this means they can transform into almost any tissue type in the body

Mesenchymal cells are a type or progenitor cell similar to a stem cell with more limited capabilities. Mesenchymal cells can transform into a limited number of tissue types whereas stem cells have much broader abilities.
