Autologous Adult Stem-Cell Treatment
Stem cell therapy has taken center stage in current international biological and medical research.
During the last 10 years the use of stem cells, which have been researched in theory as well as in laboratory and animal experiments, has been expanded to application in humans. This use is documented in extensive national and international academic literature. (Currently, an internet research alone, turns up more than one hundred thousand titles.) Many research centers have reported successful stem cell therapy for various illnesses.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are life’s “library” and “construction workers” and effect significant renewal and healing of the entire organism.
A distinction is made between embryonic stem cells (their use in Germany for research and therapy is forbidden) and autologous (one’s own) adult stem cells, which can be gathered from various organs such as bone marrow, umbilical cord, or circulating blood. Recently, there has been frequent reports about reprogrammed stem cells from skin.
The stems cells that are gathered in our partner laboratory are taken from the circulating blood or bone marrow of the patient. The stem cells are tested according to the requirements, fulfill the therapeutic as well as the ethical prerequisites, and have already proven themselves to be a useful therapeutic agent. These stem cell are allow to be administered to humans in Germany.
For which illnesses are stem cells used?
In our laboratory the main focal points are:
- geriatric illnesses
- heart diseases
- liver diseases
- diabetes mellitus type II
- nerve and muscle diseases and others
