Adult Stem Cell Therapy

Thursday, 11 June 2009

adult stem cell therapyThe progenitors of all cells, organs and tissues of the human organism are two cells: male gonocyte and female ovicell, which merge and form a zygote, from which as a result of development, a human being emerges. After a week's development, zygote is a blastocyte consisting of a membrane covering the liquid. The liquid contains a lot of non-specific cells (which received the name of stem cells). These stem cells later form organs and tissues that' why they are called totipotent (or omnipotent) meaning able to develop into any mature cell type.

The discovery of stem cells has made quite a stir in medicine. Many diseases which earlier were considered to be incurable, are successfully treated by means of stem cell-based therapy.

A vast mass of stem cells can be found in the umbilical cord of a newborn, and many modern cryocenters offer their services on blood sampling and preservation of the cells of newborns.

In adult human, the main source of stem cells generation is bone marrow, a minimal amount of them are found in all organs and tissues of an adult.

How do they work?

Stem cells have a remarkable advantage as they can develop into many different cell types in the body, including cells of hematopoietic, nervous and cardio-vascular systems, endocrine organs, bone, cartilaginous and muscular tissues. Acting in the locus of injury or disease, the stem cells recreate damaged cells of any organ and tissue, restoring the body to normal, healthy condition. This ability of stem cells has become the basis for their therapeutic use.

Methods of stem cells therapy

The basic method of stem cell therapy which currently exists is the injection transplantation.

With the help of modern medical technologies it is possible to grow stem cells. These cells can be cultivated from the minimal amount of cells available: later they are transplanted into circulatory system, and they spread out in the damaged tissues and organs. They are injected directly into the problem area to enable the omnipotent stem cells.

Sphere of stem cells potential use

Stem cells are widely used in treatment of wide variety of diseases; injection of these cells allows successful treatment of the diseases of:

  • cardio-vascular system: chronic heart diseases, heart attacks and their complications;
  • immune system: autoimmune diseases, Crohn's disease, myasthenia;
  • skin: psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, neurodermatitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, burns and other skin injuries;
  • nervous system: neuralgia, infantile cerebral paralysis, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases, Raynaud's disease, neuromuscular diseases;
  • endocrine system: diabetes mellitus of type II and its consequences;
  • locomotor system, bones and cartilaginous tissues: osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, arthroses, degenerative disc disease, coxarthrosis;
  • ophthalmologic problems;

Stem cells are also used for cosmetics purposes. Injected stem cells cause rejuvenation in tissues, the skin structure restores, metabolism improves, and the appearance of skin improves. By using stem cells one may easily remove scars, false keloids, burns, skin pigmentation. Very often rejuvenation is a side effect of stem cells therapy.

Despite the fact that a variety of diseases can be treated by this method, there are a number of illnesses which are not cured by stem cells therapy. These include insulin-dependent diabetes (Type I), cataract, glaucoma, neoplasms and cancer.

Stem cells: illusions and myths

Profiting from the ignorance of the general public, some cosmetics firms and clinics offer services which have nothing to do with the stem cells effect. Among other things, it is breast augmentation, removing deep wrinkles, weight reduction, eliminating extra fat deposits. Injections of stem cells are of no use for these purposes, these omnipotent cells are able to develop into different types of cells (muscular, bone, and even nervous tissue) and restore the damaged areas but they have no noticed cosmetic effect.

Stem cells are non-specific cells of definite type which promote regeneration of organs and tissues; they cannot augment volume or eliminate extra fat.

The results of different researches show that the formula of extensively promoted rejuvenating compound Stwolamin does not contain stem cells.
