What is stem cell therapy?

Stem Cell Therapy New York

Regenerative medicine offers much promise for those suffering from several disease states. It is a method of using our own natural healing properties in living a better quality of life. Stem cells are presently the largest target in the regenerative medicine area.

Stem cells are naive cells that have the ability to divide indefinitely. They may functionally change into any cell in our body and can integrate to the target tissue, either in the presence or absence of damage. Stem cells are "undifferentiated" cells, which allow them to develop into another type of cell that is required to repair or replace damaged tissue. Stem cell therapy can repair tissues that are too damaged to heal on their own. Stem cells can stimulate the formation of cartilage, tendon, ligaments, bone and fibrous connective tissue. Stem cell therapy is in the spectrum of cutting-edge therapeutic techniques used to naturally treat and heal the cause of a painful condition rather than masking the symptoms. Stem cell therapy stimulates and accelerates your own body's natural ability to heal itself.

Treatment of Osteoarthritis with Stem Cells

Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of chronic joint pain. Osteoarthritis involves the entire joint, including the nearby muscles, underlying bone, ligaments and connective tissue. In osteoarthritis, the supportive tissue called cartilage degenerates, leading to inflammation and pain. This type of arthritis is common in shoulders, hips, knees, hands and feet. Patients will often complain of joint stiffness, throbbing, and swelling. There is no cure for osteoarthritis, but regenerative medicine therapies such as stem cell therapy is a new generation of treatment that has been proven to be safe, effective, and have lasting results.

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells

Rethinking and evolving science using cutting-edge technologies have led to the most potent and vibrant form of stem cells – umbilical cord blood-derived cellular allograft tissue. Umbilical cord blood contains a beneficial blend of cytokines, growth factors, and stem cells that ensure a rich microenvironment to foster tissue regeneration and cellular growth.

Cord blood regenerative medicine products contains primitive undifferentiated stem cells and additional growth factors which are beneficial for repair, growth and healing. The release of growth factors that aid in the formation of new blood vessels, activation of endogenous stem cells, modulation of the immune system and growth of cells and tissue. In stem cell therapy, new stem cells are introduced into the body, and their capacity to differentiate or turn into specialized cells may allow them to repair diseased or injured tissues. They also proliferate or renew themselves many times, which can provide an ongoing supply of healthy cells. Stem cells are "intelligent." They can move through the body to where they are needed and communicate with other cells. Research indicates that mesenchymal stem cells may offer other important therapeutic properties including immunomodulation, anti-inflammatory functions, infection-fighting properties and cell rescue actions. The array of benefits related to umbilical cord blood-derived allografts is supported through the successful transplantation and coordination of multiple components. There is a careful orchestration of the ratios of cytokines, growth factors, exosomes and stem cells naturally occurring in umbilical cord blood. This naturally occurring balance of cytokines and growth factors make umbilical cord blood a great resource for allograft tissue geared towards bone growth and tissue regeneration.

Umbilical cord stem cells contain mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). They come from safe, reliable hospital sources via a non-invasive, simple, and painless procedure. The cord blood fluid allograft tissues are procured through fully tested and consented donors. Every donor is subjected to comprehensive infectious disease panels that surpass federal and industry standards, ensuring safe allografts. Umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells are provided by hospitals. All donated cord blood is delivered directly to the lab for production.

As no potentially risky or painful surgery is required, extraction of umbilical cord blood is the least invasive and safest option of sourcing stem cells. Research has shown the cord blood stem cells are not susceptible to malignant transformation in a serum-free medium, making them safe for therapeutic use in patients. The stem cells are screened in compliance with FDA, cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice) standards, which regulate quality and safety in the production of medication.

Cord blood stem cells are strictly screened, high-quality, and sold in standardized concentrations. Using stem cells gives patients a wide range of benefits via therapies that can be conducted in under half an hour. Cord blood consistent concentrations allow for multiple administration in uniform, high cell count doses. Patients can enjoy safe, non-surgical treatments in the same amount of time it would take them for a traditional office visit.

Regenerative therapy procedures are performed as outpatient procedures. They involve an injection of concentrated stem cells to regenerate and heal tissues in joints, muscles, tendons, or ligaments. These therapies can be used to treat acute or chronic pain conditions related to a degenerative disease. Stem cells are shown to be capable of accelerating the healing process.

In summary, cord blood stem cells, a regenerative medicine product, is one of the most unique stem cell/regenerative medicine products that exists today. Cord blood stem cells contain many factors that repair and heal various trauma and diseases. Cord blood stem cells play a role in angiogenesis, growth and repair of cartilage and bone tissue, which serves well in orthopedic disease, and a wide array of autoimmune diseases.

This website is intended to inform and educate patients. It also does not seek to make claims about the effectiveness of stem cells in medical treatment. 

Stem cell therapies have great potential in treating a range of chronic conditions. This site serves to inform patients  about stem cell regenerative medicine, the BioGenix stem cell product, and key in vitro, animal model, and clinical research studies that have been carried out to date across medical specialties and health conditions. However, stem cell medicine is an early and evolving field, and clinical studies are still insufficient to determine effectiveness. 

While umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cell product is produced in an FDA compliant laboratory, it has not been approved by the FDA for treatment effectiveness. Stem cell products are governed by FDA CFR title  1271 Rule 361 HUCTS. The FDA states

Stem cells, like other medical products that are intended to treat, cure or prevent disease, generally require FDA approval before they can be marketed. FDA has not approved any stem cell-based products for use, other than cord blood-derived hematopoietic progenitor cells (blood forming stem cells) for certain indications. 

Patients interested in stem cell therapy in the U.S. are advised to consult a physician about the state of FDA approval for any given product and/or inquire about opportunities to participate in a clinical trial. Patients interested in stem cell therapy outside the U.S. should investigate regulations in the specific country. It is important to be aware that regulations and clinical study requirements vary from country to country.
