Research focus

Amniotic fluid stem cell therapy

At AMNICELL, we deliver breakthroughs to fulfill our promise of using human amniotic fluid as a source of stem cells, and harnessing new technology for innovative treatments that improve healthcare and wellness.

Our initial research focus is on serious COVID-19 and other serious lung disease. We are developing a novel therapy to treat chronic non-healing wounds.  Current studies also are underway for new treatments with stem cells for diabetes, ARDS, end stage lung disease, such as pulmonary fibrosis where the only treatment is a lung transplant.  

In addition, we are studying the potential of amniotic fluid and stem cell therapy for skin care and hair growth.,
