Adult Stem Cell Therapy Abroad
What are Stem Cells?
In an embryo, stem cells can differentiate i.e. transform, into all of the specialized tissues the embryo needs to develop. In adults, stem cells act as a repair mechanism for the body, replenishing cells where needed, and maintaining the normal turnover of blood, skin and tissue.
Where do the stem cells used in treatment come from?
(a) Umbilical cord purified stem cells.
(b) Harvested from a patient and notably from bone marrow and adipose (fat) tissue.
What are they used for?
Stem Cell Therapy is one of a number of approaches currently being developed to combat degenerative diseases. It is already at a stage where it is accepted as an effective and safe treatment for various hereditary and acquired illnesses; and research continues to advance its potency.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) used by Intellihealth Plus can differentiate into multiple cell types e.g. bone, cartilage, muscle. They also have ant-inflammatory and immune-suppressing properties.
With these unique capabilities, MCSs can be used for a wide range of treatment such as immune-modulatory therapy, bone and cartilage regeneration, and skeletal and neurological disorders. Cell therapy can also assist in Anti-Aging regenerative treatments.
What are the risks with Stem Cells?
StemCells21 maintains a strict regime with the highest standard to ensure patients’ safety, comfort, and post treatment support. The Stem Cells used are subject to the most proficient screening, testing and cryopreservation. We know of no risks or side effects beyond the normal discomforts associated with medical treatment.
What does the treatment involve and how long does it take?
The protocol can vary with each patient but the basic treatment is for stem cells to be administered intravenously, augmented where necessary by vitamin supplements and laser therapy. Each session can last up to four hours; and there would normally be a session of treatment each day for three or more consecutive days.
Where do I stay during treatment?
