Stem Cell Therapy

THE FUTURE OF PAIN RELIEF IS HERE

If you can't entertain the idea of undergoing reconstructive surgery to provide relief for your chronic condition, you'll be glad to know that the benefits associated with stem cell therapy have increased considerably in recent decades.

Today, researchers are discovering ways to apply this treatment approach to common chronic conditions, for instance, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, and heart disease.

Stem cell therapy or regenerative medicine encourages the reparative response of dysfunctional, injured, or diseased tissue through stem cells or their derivatives. Researchers grow these cells in a laboratory where they undergo manipulation to specialize in particular kinds of cells, for instance, nerve, blood, or muscle cells.

Subsequently, the implant of the cells can take place in a person, for instance, if he or she has heart disease. In this case, a physician can inject the cells into the heart muscle. This therapy is a relatively fast and simple outpatient procedure.

What is Stem Cell?

Every organ and tissue in our body grew out of a cluster of stem cells early in development. A stem cell differs from every other cell in the body in its ability to renew itself. It can divide into many more just like it. Stem cells can repair and replace tissue in the human body. In other words, stem cell have the power to heal. Stem cells in our muscles are what repairs damaged tissue when we are injured.

 

Early in life, stem cells have the extraordinary potential to develop into any type of cell in the human body. They start in the embryo as programmed cells, then become specialized to create bone, muscle, skin, the heart, the brain and over 250 other types of specialized cells. They are called pluripotent stem cells.

Using Stem Cell to Heal.

Researchers have found that stem cells can be used to treat disease and injury. They stimulate the body to repair itself. For example, bone marrow transplants have been taking place for over 40 years.

 

 

These procedures rely on transplanting stem cells derived from the bone marrow and have dramatically altered the treatment of blood disorders and certain cancers such as Leukaemia.

 

 

In the past 20 years, significant new discoveries have emerged - breakthroughs that the original discoverers of stem sells never dreamed about. Researchers are finding new ways to use the stem cells to rebuild tissues in many parts of the body where it has been damaged, such as the eye, the pancreas and the brain. Some revolutionary treatment for blindness, MS, stroke and spinal cord injury are already in early stage clinical trials.

Sources of Stem Cell.

Much of the public discussions about stem cells has focused on where stem cells come from. Adult stem cells can be found in specific tissues in the body. As mature cells, they are already specialized to perform certain functions and are somewhat more limited in their application for therapeutic purposes. Generally, they can make on the kinda of cells found in the tissues where they reside.

 

 

On the other hand, embryonic stem cells - derived form five-day old blstocysts that are precursors to embryos - are pluripotemt in nature. They can generate any kind of cell in the body as well as any kind of tissue. This is why they are such value to scientists doing both basic research in the lab and medical research in the clinic. They have the potential to regenerate tissue and cells that have been lost because of disease or injury.

Recent Advances

One of the most unexpected breakthroughs of the past decades was the discovery of induced pluripotent stem cells or iPS cells. These are adult stem cells that have been treated - or induced - to revert back to embryonic-like, or pluripotent, state. By creating pluripotent cells from patient's own adult stem cells, there is even greater possibilities to treat catastrophic and degenerative diseases, eliminating problems with tissue rejection after implantation.

Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy

Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases

Cardiovascular illnesses can deprive the heart tissue of oxygen, causing the formation of scar tissue, which alters blood pressure or blood flow. Research has shown that stem cells from adult bone marrow can differentiate into those required to repair the blood vessels and heart due to the secretion of numerous growth factors.

Helps heal incisions and wounds

Studies have discovered that stem cell therapy can help enhance the growth of new healthy skin tissue, enhance collagen production, stimulate hair development after incisions or loss, and help substitute scar tissue with newly developed healthy tissue.

Treatment of Neurodegenerative Diseases

Studies have discovered that stem cell therapy can help enhance the growth of new healthy skin tissue, enhance collagen production, stimulate hair development after incisions or loss, and help substitute scar tissue with newly developed healthy tissue.

Autoimmune Diseases

Stem cell therapy for autoimmune illnesses is a new option for persons living with severe and debilitating conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Autoimmune diseases arise when your immune system attacks its own tissues, cells and organs. At ASAP, stem cell therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that seeks to maintain downtime to a minimum.

Orthopedic Conditions

This therapy can help those experiencing the discomfort associated with orthopedic conditions, spine disease and sports-related injuries. At ASAP, they address the underlying sources of pain while offering an opportunity for healing effects and lasting relief.
