Most cells in the body have a specific function in particular organs, such as the liver, skin or brain. Stem cells are relatively undifferentiated and still have the ability to develop into different types of cells to exert different functions.
A stem cell's most notable characteristic is its ability to reproduce a completely new, normal, and even younger cell. As a result, people can use their own or someone else’s stem cells, or stem cell -derived tissues or organs, to replace ill or aging tissues or organs. This permits treatment of a wide range of diseases and injuries, many of which cannot be treated with traditional medical methods.
Besides reproducing new cells and providing cell replacement, an equally important function of the stem cell therapy is to provide the body with cell factors to help to encourage the following functions:
2.Reducing cell death
3.Stimulation the differentiation of the patient’s own stem cells
4.Neo-angiogenesis (the growth of blood vessels resulting in increased blood flow to damaged areas)
6.Improving the effective conduction of intercellular electrical signals and transduction
It is important to note that there is much less concern about the stem cell types we use, unlike embryonic/fetal stem cells, causing cancer and tumors. None of our patients have ever developed cancer due to the treatment and in fact we are able to use umbilical and adult stem cell derived ‘killer cells’ to attack tumors and treat cancer patients with cancer immunotherapy.
