WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells. This means they are cells whose functions have yet to be assigned. The most important quality for stem cells is their ability to develop into any cell.
They can also renew themselves making them very durable and hardy. In a way, stem cells can be termed as master cells. There are two types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells and adult stem cells.
WHAT ARE EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS?
Aptly named, embryonic stem cells develop in embryos. These cells have the ability to reproduce until they are coaxed by internal mechanism to form specific types of cells. They also have the ability to regenerate into any type of cell.
WHAT ARE ADULT STEM CELLS?
Adult stem cells are found in all humans, specifically in the bone marrow and fatty tissue. These stem cells have the ability to develop into any kind of cell in their home tissues. In normal environments, adult stem cells don’t seem to have the ability to grow into any other kind of cell other than that found in their home tissue.
Biomedical specialists at StemCells21 are able to harvest these adult stem cells and purpose them into any type of cell needed. These reprogrammed cells are called induced pluripotent stem cells (IPS cells), and they can be made from adult stem cells in the skin, fatty tissue, bone marrow and other sources.
HOW DOES STEM CELL THERAPY WORK?
Once the stem cells have been harvested and bioengineered to fit the needs at hand, they are introduced into the area that requires treatment. Bone marrow transplant is currently one of the best-known forms of stem cell therapy. Other types, like the use of umbilical cord extracts, are also common.
StemCells21 has also developed stem cell therapies for other fields like:
• Anti aging
• Neurological disorders
• Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
• Vision and hearing
• Immune disorders
• Heart disease
DOES STEM CELL THERAPY WORK?
Stem cell therapy is a result of many years of research by the best trained medical professionals around the world. It is a natural way to treat medical conditions in that it uses resources already available in the body. There are many positive testimonials that affirm this treatment.
Stem cell therapy has no major side effects and often, patients are able to resume normal duties within a few hours of treatment.
DO LIFESTYLE CHOICES LIKE SMOKING OR DRIKING AFFECT OUTCOME?
Alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking can both be detrimental to new progenitor stem cells. It is highly advisable that patients do not smoke or drink during their treatment.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Each individual patient is unique. Some patients comment on positive changes during the course of their treatment, others have experienced improvement after a longer period of time. However, once the treatment takes effect, there will be a marked improvement on the condition that was being treated.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
Generally speaking, aside from the initial pain at the injection site, the patient will not experience any discomfort. A few patients have developed a minor fever, headache or nausea.
However, these side effects hardly last long and usually resolve themselves within 24 hours. No long term negative side effects have been reported due to stem cell therapy.
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR THE TREATMENT?
Stem cell therapy is suitable for use by any person regardless of age or medical condition. It is safe, effective and convenient.
