Stem Cell Therapy, Treatment, Education and Information


Stem cell therapy can be described as a means or process by which stem cells are used for the prevention, treatment or the cure of diseases. Stem cells are a special kind of cells that have features other types of cells don’t have. As an illustration, stem cells are capable of proliferation. This implies that they can develop into any type of cell, and grow to start performing the functions of the tissue. In addition, they can regenerate. This means they can multiply themselves. This is most important when a new tissue has to be formed. Also, they modulate immune reactions. This has made them useful for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, especially those that affect the musculoskeletal system such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and so on. Stem cells can be derrived from different sources. They can be extracted from the body, and in some specific parts of the body. This includes the blood, bone marrow, umbilical cord in newborns, adipose tissue, and from embryos. There are 2 main types of stem cell transplant. These are autologous stem cell transplant, and allogeneic stem cell transplant. The autologous stem cell transplant means that stem cells are extracted from the patient, processed, and then transplanted back to the patient, for therapeutic purposes. On the other hand, allogeneic stem cell transplant means the transplant of stem cells or from another individual, known as the donor, to another person, or recipient. Some treatments must be given to the receiver to prevent any cases of rejections, and other complications. The autologous is usually the most preferred type of transplant because of its almost zero side effects. Below are some of the stem cell treatments. Our goal is to provide education, research and an opportunity to connect with Stem Cell Doctors, as well as provide stem cell reviews



Several options have evolved over the years in Regenerative Medicine



Adipose Stem Cell Treatments Adipose stem cell treatment is one of the most commonly used. This is because large quantities of stem cells can be derrived from them. According to statistics, the number of stem cells in adipose tissue are usually hundreds of times higher than what can be obtained from other sources, such as the bone marrow stem cells. Adipose stem cells have taken the center stage in the world of stem cell therapy. Apart from the ease that comes with the harvesting of these cells from the adipose tissue, they also have some special features, that separates them from other types of cells. Adipose stem cells are capable of regulating and modulating the immune system. This includes immune suppression, which is important for the treatment of autoimmune diseases. In addition, adipose stem cells can differentiate to form other types of cells. Some of them include the bone forming cells, cardiomyocytes, and cells of the nervous system.           


Harvesting And Processing Of Adipose Stem Cells

This process can be divided into four parts. These are           
  1. Harvesting: Fat tissues are extracted from the patient. The adipose tissues are usually taken from the patient’s abdomen. This process is usually painless and fast. A large number of fat tissue is taken. This process is similar to liposuction. This process has no side effects such as host rejection, as the donor and recipient are the same people, and the risks of infection are minimal.
  2. Separation: The extracted adipose tissues are then washed in a phosphate-saline solution, then filtered to eliminate any tissue debris. The stem cells are then separated from the adipose cells by using a centrifuge.
  3. Activation: These stem cells that have been separated from adipose cells through the centrifuge are now activated. This is done by exposing them to the Adilight. They are now ready to be transferred back to the body.
  4. Treatment: The stem cells that have been centrifuged and activated are now kept in a drip bag that contains a saline solution. They are then transferred to the body of the patient. The healing process isn’t a simple process but usually complicated. The stem cells have the ability to locate injured or damaged tissues in the body. This is because damaged tissues usually send out some cytokines, which the stem cells are sensitive to. The stem cells locate the origin of proteins, and they hone towards the place, where they eventually carry out repairs and might replace the damaged tissues if need be.

Stem Cell Joint Injection

Stem cell joint injection is fast becoming the new treatment of joint diseases. Stem cells derived from bone marrow, adipose and mesenchymal stem cells are the most commonly used. The stem cells are injected into the joints, and they proceed to repair and replace the damaged tissues. The cells also modulate the inflammatory process going on. Overall, stem cell joint injections significantly reduce the recovery time of patients and also eliminates pain and risks associated with surgery.  Examples of diseases where this treatment is used include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and so on. Researchers and physicians have rated this procedure to be the future of joint therapy.

Stem Cells For Tooth Regrowth

Losing a tooth as a kid isn’t news because you’d eventually grow them back, but losing one as an adult isn’t a pleasant experience. You’d have to go through the pains of getting a replacement from your dentist. Apart from the cost of these procedures, the pain and number of days you’d have to stay at home nursing the pain is also a problem. Nevertheless, there are great teeth replacement therapies available for all kinds of dental problems. Although there are already good dental treatment methods, stem cell therapy might soon become the future of dental procedures. Currently, a lot of research is being done on how stem cells can be used to develop teeth naturally, especially in patients with dental problems. The aim of the project is to develop a method whereby people’s stem cells are used in regenerating  their own teeth and within the shortest time possible. Some of the benefits of the stem cell tooth would be:          
  1. No risk of rejection due to the incompatibility of the of dental implants and the patient’s teeth.
  2. The new tooth or teeth would grow naturally and fit perfectly with the jawbone, without any flaw or side effect.
  3. This process is usually more rapid than having to go through dental surgical procedures.
  4. The procedure is also far less invasive, as compared to dental implants.
  5. The cost of getting this done is relatively cheaper, as compared to dental implant procedures. It also doesn’t require a lot of consultations and expensive procedures.
          

Stem Cell Quality Of Life And Prevention

The quality of life of those that underwent serious procedures, especially those that had an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation done was studied. It was discovered that this set of people had to cope with some psychological problems, even years after the procedure. In addition, allogeneic stem cell transplantation often comes with some side effects. However, this a small price to pay, considering that the adverse effects are not usually life-threatening.  Also theses types of procedures are used for severe disorders or even terminal diseases. On the other hand, autologous stem cell transplantation bears the minimum to no side effects. Patients do have a great quality of life, both in the short term and in the long term.

Stem Cell Gun for Wounds and Burns

This is one of the many uses of stem cells. The stem cell gun is a device that is used in treating people with wounds or burns. This is done by simply triggering it, and it sprays stem cells on the affected part. This kind of treatment is crucial for victims of a severe burn. Usually, people affected by severe burns would have to endure excruciating pain. The process of recovery is usually long, which might vary from weeks to months, depending on the severity of the burn. Even after treatment, most patients are left with scars forever. However, the stem cell gun eliminates these problems, the skin can be grown back in just a matter of days. The new skin also grows evenly and blends perfectly with the other part of the body. This process is also without the scars that are usually associated with the traditional burns therapy. The stem cell gun is without any side effects.           

Stem Cell Supplements

There is one company that focuses on the production of stem cell supplements. These stem cells are usually natural ingredients that increase the development of stem cells, and also keeps them healthy. The purpose of the stem cell supplements is to help reduce the aging process and make people look younger. These supplements work by replacing the dead or repairing the damaged tissues of the body. There have been a lot of testimonials to the efficacy of these supplements.           

Direct Inject Stem Cell Protocols

  Heart Attacks or Cardiac Ischemia Has Seen Results

It is the goal of researchers to make stem cell therapy a good alternative for the millions of patients suffering from cardiac-related diseases. According to some experiments carried out in animals, stem cells were injected into the ones affected by heart diseases. A large percentage of them showed great improvement, even within just a few weeks. However, when the trial was carried out in humans, some stem cells went ahead to develop into heart muscles, but overall, the heart function was generally improved. The reason for the improvement has been attributed to the formation of new vessels in the heart. The topic that has generated a lot of arguments have been what type of cells should be used in the treatment of heart disorders. Stem cells extracted from the bone marrow, embryo have been in use, although bone marrow stem cells are the most commonly used. Stem cells extracted from bone marrow can differentiate into cardiac cells, while studies have shown that other stem cells cannot do the same. Even though the stem cell therapy has a lot of potential in the future, more research and studies have to be done to make that a reality.           

Stem Cell Therapy For Hair Loss 

The use of stem cells for the treatment of hair loss has increased significantly. This can be attributed to the discovery of stem cells in bone marrow, adipose cells, umbilical cord, and so on. Stem cells are extracted from the patient, through any of the sources listed above. Adipose tissue stem cells are usually the most convenient in this scenario, as they do not require any special extraction procedure. Adipose tissue is harvested from the abdominal area. The stem cells are then isolated from the other cells through a process known as centrifugation. The stem cells are then activated and are now ready for use. The isolated stem cells are then introduced into the scalp, under local anesthesia. The entire process takes about three hours. Patients are free to go home, after the procedure. Patients would begin to see improvements in just a few months, however, this depends largely on the patient’s ability to heal. Every patient has a different outcome.

Human Umbilical Cell Tissue Injections

Human umbilical stem cells are cells extracted from the umbilical cord of a healthy baby, shortly after birth. Umbilical cord tissue is abundant in stem cells, and the stem cells can differentiate into many types of cells such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. They are also capable of differentiating into non-blood cells such as muscle cells, cartilage cells and so on. These cells are usually preferred because its' extraction is minimally non invasive.  It also is nearly painless. It also has zero risks of rejecting, as it does not require any form of matching or typingHuman umbilical stem cell injections are used for the treatment of spinal cord injuries. A trial was done on twenty-five patients that had late-stage spinal cord injuries. They were placed on human umbilical stem cell therapy, while another set of 25 patients were simultaneously placed on the usual rehabilitation therapy. The two groups were studied for the next twelve months. The results of the trial showed that those people placed on stem cell therapy by administering the human umbilical cell tissue injections had a significant recovery, as compared to the other group that underwent the traditional rehabilitation therapy. It was concluded that human umbilical tissue injections applied close to the injured part gives the best outcomes.

Top 10 Stem Cell Therapy Procedure And Regenerative Medicine Protocols

Stem cell therapy has been used for the treatment of many types diseases. This ranges from terminal illnesses such as cancer, joint diseases such as arthritis, and also autoimmune diseases. Stem cell therapy is often a better alternative to most traditional therapy today. This is because stem cell procedure is minimally invasive when compared to chemotherapy and so on. It harnesses the body’s own ability to heal. The stem cells are extracted from other parts of the body and then transplanted to other parts of the body, where they would repair and maintain the tissues. They also perform the function of modulating the immune system, which makes them important for the treatment of autoimmune diseases. Below are some of  the diseases that stem cell therapies have been used successfully:        
  1. Red blood cell disorder: Stem cell therapy has been used to treat and cure thalassemia. Thalassemia is a blood disorder in which the abnormal hemoglobin is formed. The severity of this disease depends on the kind of thalassemia the patient presents with. Alpha thalassemia with 1 or 2 mutated genes generally does not present with serious symptoms. On the other hand, alpha thalassemia with 3 mutated genes usually presents with moderate symptoms, while thalassemia with 4 mutated genes is usually very severe. Kids with this kind of blood disorder usually die before or just after they’re born. There are few cases where they get to live after birth though. These patients would require stem cell therapy. This is done by introducing hematopoietic stem cells into the patient’s body. However, the old cells with defects must have been removed from the circulation before administering the new stem cells. The new cells would replace the bad unhealthy cells, proliferate, and differentiate into new blood cells.
  2. Brain disorders: Stem cell therapy has also proved to be useful in the treatment of some brain disorders. An example of a disorder that has been successfully treated with this therapy is Huntington’s disease. This is a neurodegenerative disease of the brain that affects the nerve cells. This disease significantly impairs the ability of the patient to perform the tasks he could perform before. The psychological and mental state of the patient is greatly altered. Some of the symptoms commonly presented by affected patients include difficulty in speaking, low mood, problems swallowing food, chorea, the inability of the patient to focus on making the right decisions. As this disease progresses, the patient might have to rely on family or caregivers to live comfortably. This disease is a mutation of the genetic makeup. This disease can also be inherited from one’s parents. Mesenchymal stem cells are used for the treatment of this disease. This is because these cells do not trigger an immune reaction in the body.  They enter the body quietly, locate the part of the brain that has an abnormality, and proceed to repair or replace the nerve cells. Their ability to modulate the immune system also slows down and stops the progression of the disease.
  3. Autoimmune diseases: Autoimmune diseases are diseases in which the immune system fails to identify the body tissues and proceeds to attack it. This alters and impairs the function of the tissue or organ. An example of such condition is the systemic lupus erythematosus. This is a chronic disease in which the autoantibodies attack the tissues of the body, leading to different inflammatory reactions in the body, and impairing the function of the organs. This is a multi-systemic disease, and the following systems are often affected. They include the pulmonary system, the renal, hepatic, nervous and the cardiovascular system. Some of the signs and symptoms of this disease include chronic tiredness, renal diseases, arthritis, skin disorders and so on. This disease currently has no cure, however, medications are usually given to improve the symptoms of the patient, to enable the patient to live a comfortable life. The modulatory functions of the stem cells come into play here. After the stem cells have been extracted and processed, they are injected intravenously into the patient. The cells suppress the activities of the autoantibodies and then proceeds to repair the injured cells. A lot of work still needs to be done for this procedure to be approved by the FDA. However, it is noteworthy that there were no side effects when this procedure was performed on humans.
  4. Multiple sclerosis: This is another example of an autoimmune disease. Multiple sclerosis is the most prevalent myelin disorder that affects the central nervous system. The central nervous system includes the brain and the spinal cord. Multiple sclerosis is a condition in which the autoantibodies attack the myelin sheath of the nerves of the brain and spinal cord. Normally, the function of the myelin sheath is to increase the rate at which impulses are conducted from one cell to another cell. This leads to the interruption of communication between the nerve cells and the muscles, which would eventually lead to conditions such as imbalance, difficulty in movement, vision problems and so on. This disease usually progresses with time. Multiple sclerosis can be treated with stem cell therapy. Adipose stem cells have been shown to be the most effective in treating this disease. The first step is to extract the fat tissues from the patient. Long injections are used in doing this. This procedure might have to be done about 3-5 times before enough fat tissues can be gotten. The fat tissues are separated from the stem cells. This is done by centrifugation. The isolated stem cells are then activated; after which they’re injected back into the body. The stem cells are then transplanted to the body by intravenous drips. The stem cells reduce the effects of the autoantibodies, and also repair and replace the myelin sheaths that have been damaged.

Stem Cell Banking

A stem cell bank can be described as a facility where stem cells are stored for future purposes. These are mostly amniotic stem cells, which are derived from the amnion fluid. Umbilical cord stem cells are also equally important as it is rich in stem cells and can be used for the treatment of many diseases. Examples of these diseases include cancer, blood disorders, autoimmune diseases, musculoskeletal diseases and so on. According to statistics, umbilical stem cells can be used for the treatment of over eighty diseases. Storing your stem cells should be seen as an investment in your health for future sake. Parents do have the option of either throwing away their baby’s umbilical cord or donating it to stem cell banks.           

 Is Stem Cell Banking right for you, ask a certified iSTEMCELL provider.

  1. Family stem cell banking: Family stem cell banking is the process of storing stem cells for the use of the entire family, should the need arise. These stem cells are most commonly extracted from the umbilical cord of a new member of the family. The umbilical cord is deposited at a stem cell bank for a fee, and an annual payment is made to maintain the bank. Some families usually do this because of the family history of diseases. A family with a history of a genetic disease such as cystic fibrosis might decide to store the umbilical cord of a new baby born into the family, so it can be used in the future for treatment.
  2. Newborn banking: This is similar to family stem banking. The cord blood is abundant in stem cells. The cord blood is the blood inside the umbilical cord. The stem cells in the cord blood can be used for the treatment of many diseases. It’s stored to preserve the future health of the baby. This is done especially when the parent knows that there is a chance their baby might present with a congenital disease after birth. Some of the disorders that can be treated with stem cells include autism, multiple sclerosis, sickle cell disease, and so on.
  3. Adipose Tissue Stem Cell Banking
The adipose tissue contains a lot of stem cells, that has the ability to transform into other cells such as muscle, cartilage, neural cells. They are also important for the treatment of some cardiovascular diseases. This is what makes it important for people to want to store their stem cells. The future health benefit is huge. The only way adults can store their stem cells in sufficient amounts is to extract the stem cells from their fat tissues. This process is usually painless and fast. Although, the extraction might have to be done between 3 to 5 times before the needed quantity is gotten. People that missed the opportunity to store their stem cells, using their cord cells, can now store it using their own adipose tissues. This can be used at any point in time.

Side Effects Of Stem Cell Therapy

Side effects often accompany every kind of treatment. However, this depends largely on the individual. While patients might present with side effects, some other people wouldn’t. Whether a patient will present with adverse effects, depends on the following factors;           
  1. The type of transplant used: Autologous stem cell transplants do not present with any kind of adverse effects. On the other hand, allogeneic stem cell transplants have a higher chance of presenting with various side effects.
  2. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy: When these procedures are done before the transplant, the patient loses his immunity, giving room for a lot of opportunistic diseases. This process is known as conditioning. It’s usually done in blood disorders when the entire cellular component of the blood has to be removed from the body, to pave way for new healthy stem cells.
  3. Health status: An individual with a poor immune system has more chances of having a lot of side effects after undergoing stem cell transplant.
Some of the common side effects of stem cell transplant are;           
  1. Infections
  2. Tissue ejection
  3. Loss of hair
  4. Gastrointestinal problems
  5. Infection
  6. Abnormal bleeding due to thrombocytopenia.
  7. Pulmonary disorders
