Research is underway to develop various sources for stem cells, and to apply stem-cell treatments for neurodegenerative diseases and conditions.
Autologous Adipose Tissue-Derived StemCell is the most widely used stem-cell therapy, where the stem cells come from the patient’s own body.
Using a liposuction procedure a small sample ( 50cc – 200cc ) of Adipose tissue (fat) is removed from inner thighs or lower abdomen from the patient under a local or general anesthetic .
The Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) which contains Adult Stem Cells (ASCs) was separated from the lipoaspirates by centrifugation after treatment with collagenase .
Adult Stem Cells and other progenitor cells are then isolated from the SVF using advanced multi-filtration protocols. The isolated adult stem cells are activated with a low light laser.
The activated stem cells cells are then administered via full body IV and through additional customized administrations.
Depending on the type of deployment required, stem cells can be injected through veins, arteries, into spinal fluid, subcutaneously, or directly into joints or organs. All of these are considered minimally invasive methods of introducing the stem cells. In the right environment, these stem cells can change (differentiate) into bone, cartilage, muscle, fat, collagen, neural tissue, blood vessels, and even some organs. Because it is your own DNA material, there is no rejection. The whole process takes around three hours.
The physical, harvesting, and administration of stem cells are all performed in-house under a physician’s control.
