Stem cells are the bricks that build all of the organism tissues. While the organism ages the number of our own stem cells decreases. This is a normal process just as we age our body ages as well. That is why the umbilical cord tissue stem cells come in handy. Various researches and studies proof that umbilical cord tissue stem cells have the possibility to treat medical issues involving cartilage, nervous tissue and muscles. Those stem cells have the extraordinary ability to quickly regenerate and differentiate. Also they carry a great amount of mesenchymal stem cells.
The umbilical cord stem cells might be the last and only option for people from the elderly groups. The elderly group of people usually have co-existing conditions and the risk during the autologous stem cells extraction procedure is great and not suitable for everyone. Even if the extraction is plausible the stem cells from the elderly organism would not be so lively and numerous. For those reasons in some occasions umbilical cord stem cells are the only available option for some groups of patients.
In some cases mesenchymal stem cells are extracted from the cord tissue and expanded ex vivo to reach greater results in regenerating the nervous and other tissues, as well as reducing inflammation and modulating the immune system.
Another point in favour the umbilical cord stem cells is that they are less mature than other stem cells the so called “adult” stem cells therefore the immune system is unable to trace them and the probability of rejection is zero. Allergic reactions and unwanted effects are also excluded thanks to the cells “immaturity”.
Overall umbilical cord tissue stem cells are a powerful weapon and for some category of patients the one and only available option and of course safety is guaranteed.
Umbilical cord stem cells are widely used to treat Multiple sclerosis and other demyeliniating conditions, diseases with lack of neurotransmitters such as:
Umbilical cord stem cells can also be used in younger groups of patients suffering from conditions as cerebral palsy, autism, hypoxic brain damage.
Beside the conditions mentioned stem cells therapy shows great results in the following conditions: diabetes mellitus, congestive heart insufficiency, after stroke, polyneuropathy from diverse genesis (after spinal cord injuries). The stem cells regenerate the damaged tissue of the heart, liver, pancreas, nervous tissue. The inflammation process attracts stem cells trough its receptors so the stem cells can fight and eliminate those inflammation spots through differentiation into the damaged cells.
What they say about us
Shaun Lawrence battled multiple sclerosis for many years before deciding to come to Swiss Medica clinic. Limp on his right leg, urinary and bowel problems were some of the main issues he suffered from. After having a stem cell treatment his life changed completely. He is very satisfied with the experience, as well as the overall results of the treatment.continue
For me, since I got back after my 2 weeks of having my treatment, within 2 days of being home speaking to friends and family around the world, they all noticed the difference in my speaking, cognitively and I was able to listen and integrate with conversations with my family at home.
A wonderful experience, a wonderful care are these very caring people, yes.continue
Everything is done naturally and pleasantly here. Actually I do not feel sick, it is the most important thing – during these 12 days I haven’t felt sick.
I didn’t have the impression that I was treated like a patient. I was treated like a normal person, it is true I take medicines, receive infusions and still have some pain, but I never felt like I was in the hospital.continue
Linda Cole struggled with multiple sclerosis for over 30 years. She decided to give stem cell treatment a try, even though she didn’t expect much from it. She was pleasantly surprised, as her symptoms improved and reversed drastically. Her ability to move, walk and think much better than before assured her she made the right decision by coming to Swiss Medica.continue
