Human Stem Cells are undifferentiated cells with a self-renewal capacity, responsible for regenerating tissues, organs and cells existing in multicellular organisms through a mechanism known as differentiation.
They can be obtained from different tissues, some of the most studied are:
Cell therapy is a multidisciplinary medical branch in which several areas of biology converge. It is based in the application of mesenchymal stem cells to improve the regeneration, maintenance and repair processes of our tissues. The histocompatibility properties of cell therapy make it a safe therapy since, by not showing these complexes, our immune system does not generate any type of rejection.
There are multiple ways to apply these type of treatments: intra-arterial, intrathecal, intralesional and intravenous, the intravenous being the most common one since it only takes from 5 to 30 minutes to perform in the comfort of a clinic or office, being completely ambulatory. However, the cell dose and the number of applications will depend on the type of disease and the patient's progress in the treatment.
Human Stem Cells have a regenerative capacity with a high rate of success in restoring the functionality of tissues and organs, however, the degree of regeneration and improvement will depend on each patient; in some patients, an improvement in the symptomatology ranging from 30% to 90% has been reported.
