WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
The goal of regenerative medicine is to repair organs and tissues that are damaged by disease, aging or trauma, so that function can be restored, or at least improved. Using this definition, most medical acts can be considered "regenerative", except those that are aimed at prevention of disease such as vaccination.
WHAT ARE THE POTENTIAL USES OF HUMAN ADULT STEM CELLS?
Most of the body's specialized cells cannot be replaced by natural processes if they are seriously damaged or diseased. Adult Stem Cells can be used to regenerate healthy and functioning specialized cells, which can then replace diseased or dysfunctional cells. Replacing diseased with healthy cells, called cell therapy, is similar to the process of organ transplantation wherein the treatment consists of transplanting cells instead of organs. Adult Stem Cells can serve as an alternate and renewable source for specialized cells.
WHAT DISEASES CAN BE TREATED BY ADULT STEM CELLS?
Spinal cord injury
Type 1 diabetes
ARE ADULT STEM CELLS CURRENTLY USED IN THERAPIES TODAY?
Yes - Hemapoietic stem cells (HSCs) present in the bone marrow and precursors to all blood cells, are is successful clinical application for more than 40 years.
DOES THE TREATMENT REQUIRE ADMISSION OF THE PATIENT TO THE HOSPITAL?
Evaluation of the Disease,
Extraction of Bone Marrow,
Transfusion of Isolated Adult Stem Cells
PRECAUTIONS TAKEN AT NISCELL?
Viral and Bacterial screening and Endotoxin Tests to detect contamination.
Stringent GMP protocols followed to maintain sterility in the clean room using approved Bar Code tracking and Quality Control Systems.
