Adult Stromal Cells (Mesenchymal Stem Cells) – used in our treatment
Human adult stem cells obtained from umbilical cord, cord blood, bone marrow, fat or skin
Used to treat diseases
MSC carry unique properties as compared to other adult stem cells in a body
MSC can differentiate into cells of various adult tissues, including bones, cartilage, adipose tissue, muscle (including cardiomyocytes), cells of vascular endothelium, nerve cells, liver cells etc.
MSC is the most characteristic type of stem cells with high plasticity (ability to produce a different system’s stem cells).
Why use MSC
MSC can be cultured from a small portion of cells of bone marrow or other tissues taken within a diagnostic puncture;
Intravenously transplanted MSC are capable of selective penetration (homing) into damaged parts of organs and tissues, where they have angiogenic, antiapoptotic, antioxidant and mitogenic effects (paracrine effects);
MSC transplantation can launch regeneration processes in vital organs of human body such as the heart, brain, lungs etc.;
Systemic MSC transplantation dramatically enhances acceptance of transplanted organs (it is already practiced in liver transplantation);
Safety of systemic and local transplantation of both autologous and allogenic MSC has been confirmed in experimental and clinical conditions
