Stem cells is a kind of self-renewing cells, which are immature and do not fully differentiate, and have the potential function of regenerating all kinds of tissues and organs. So they are called "universal cells".
According to the different original sources, stem cells can be divided into embryonic stem cells, somatic stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, neural stem cells and muscle stem cells etc. According to the development potential, stem cells can be divided into totipotent stem cells, pluripotent stem cells and unipotent stem cells.
The Characteristics and Advantages of Stem Cells
a. Stem cells have the strong abilities of proliferation and multi-direction differentiation, so a lot of descendants are generated.
b. Through intercellular interactions and generating cell factors to inhibit the proliferation and immune reaction of T cells, thus rebuilding the immune function.
c. Stem cells are widely available, which are easy to separate, culture, proliferate and purify, daughter cells still remain the same characteristics as mother cells after proliferating many times.
d. Low immunogenicity. Stem cells don't have the character of immunological rejection and the problem of blood matching because stem cells are in the initial state and can not be identified easily.
e. Stem cells have the unique ability of 'homing'. Through the function of 'homing', the traumatic signal can stimulate stem cells to differentiate new cells to replace the damaged organs and tissues so as to repair and rebuild the damaged cells.
Overview of Stem Cells Therapy
Stem Cells Therapy is an advanced medical technology, which brings new hope for the treatment of incurable diseases. It has a wide curative range such as Kidney Diseases, Diabetes, Heart Disease, Leukaemia, etc. With this therapy, healthy cells enter human body through intravenous injections for achieving the purpose of repairing and changing the damaged cells and tissues.
The procedure of Stem Cells Therapy: We should first collect the stem cells, then, cultivate the stem cells in the laboratory. The cultivation needs about seven days. When the stem cells grow the best, they will be infused into the patients' body through veins.
Characteristics of this treatment include: wide curative range; the best carrier of immunization and gene therapy; safety, low-toxicity or non-toxicity and no immune rejection; adequate therapy materials, unlimited collection and cultivation of stem cells.
Stem cell therapy for kidney disease
Stem cell therapy is an intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. When the new adult stem cells are injected into the body, they will find the areas of injury because of these cytokines, which is released by the injured kidneys. Then when the stem cells get to the area of injury, they can differentiate into kidney specific cells. The new kidney cells can take the place of the damaged ones to work so as to improve the function of kidneys.
The curative effect of stem cell therapy for kidney Disease?
As we all know, kidney disease can not be cured completely, so our ultimate purpose of our treatment is to keep the damaged kidneys to function as long as possible, with as few complications as possible. Stem cell therapy is such a therapy. The marked improvement for kidneys after receiving stem cell therapy proves that this therapy is significantly better than most treatments. Besides, it avoids the need for dialysis and kidney transplant. The various indicators of kidneys will gradually return to normal:
-The blood circulation improves.
-High blood pressure is controlled.
-Immune system is rebuilt.
-High blood sugar reduces.
-Both albumin and leukocytes in the urine reduces to within normal limits.
- The level of GFR increases.
Possible Side-Effects and Complications of Stem Cells Therapy
Stem Cells Therapy is an advanced technology with the character of safety, no-toxin or low-toxin, and no side-effect. The common clinical response is anaphylaxis which will disappear in several hours by itself. Patients don't need to worry when temperature is up to 39°, take little hormone when temperature is more than 39°. In addition, patients will have better sleep and spirit after receiving Stem Cells Therapy, and this is the early effective effect.
The Total Cost of Stem Cell Therapy
The cost of stem cell therapy for chronic kidney disease depends on not only patients' illness condition but also the amount and types of injected stem cells. Therefore, you can describe your medical condition to the online doctor or send email to email@example.com, so kidney experts here can tell you whether you are suitable to accept stem cell therapy and the rough cost of your treatment.BACK To TOP
