Cellebration specializes in providing cord-blood derived stem cell therapy for various conditions. Recent studies reveal that the cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells, central to our treatments, can activate the body's cells to encourage healing, regulate the immune system, manage inflammation, and restore damaged tissues.

What are Stem Cells?

Every day, millions of cells in our bodies die or sustain damage, necessitating their continuous replacement. This ongoing cycle is a part of the body's innate repair mechanism, essential for healing injuries and recovering from illnesses.

Every cell in the body, regardless of its specific role, originates from a unique kind of cell known as a stem cell. During differentiation, a stem cell divides to produce two cells: either another stem cell or a different type of new cell.

Typically, the body possesses sufficient stem cells to meet its requirements for new cell generation. However, certain factors can lead to a deficit in stem cells, impacting the body's ability to heal and combat diseases. The growing interest in cell therapy within the scientific community is fueled by emerging research, suggesting that treatments with various cell types can augment the body's own stem cells, thereby enhancing the regenerative process and promoting healing.

  • Display remarkable regenerative capabilities
  • Possess potent anti-inflammatory effects, lowering pro-inflammatory cytokines while boosting anti-inflammatory ones
  • Secrete growth factors that aid the body in its healing process

Understanding the Mechanism of Stem Cell Therapy

Every cell in the body, irrespective of its role, is derived from stem cells, which possess the ability to differentiate into specialized cells for different organs or tissues as part of a natural growth and development process.

Stem cells function as a key component of the body's innate repair mechanism, replenishing a diverse array of cell types across various structures, organs, and tissues.

  • In response to skin burns, the body activates stem cells to regenerate new skin cells.
  • To combat infections, stem cells are transformed into new immune cells by the body.
  • When joint cartilage degrades, the body repurposes stem cells to form new cartilage cells.

Types of Stem Cells

There are several different sources of stem cells that have been studied for use in treatment. These include:

Adult or Somatic Stem Cells (Adipose (Fatty) Tissue or Bone Marrow)

Sourced from either adipose (fatty) tissue or bone marrow of a patient or a compatible donor, have been utilized in treatments. However, since these cells are more mature, their capacity for healing and alleviating chronic inflammation is generally less potent compared to other types of stem cells.

Embryonic Stem Cells (Not Utilized by Us)

While embryonic stem cells possess considerable potential for differentiation due to their young age, ethical concerns related to the use of embryos in medical practices have led to restrictions on their use in many countries.

Perinatal Cells (Umbilical Cord-Derived Stem Cells)

Harvested from typically discarded post-birth tissues such as the placenta, amniotic fluids, and umbilical cord, these cells are youthful and highly effective in promoting healing, modulating the immune system, and secreting growth factors that aid in tissue regeneration throughout the body. Being a byproduct of healthy childbirth, these 'adult' stem cells are free from ethical concerns associated with their use.

Advantages of using Cord Blood Stem Cells vs. Manufactured or Manipulated Cells

Stem cells derived from cord blood offer several significant advantages over manufactured cells in medical treatments, owing to their unique properties and potential for clinical applications.

Natural Origin and Reduced Risk of Rejection

One of the primary advantages of using stem cells from cord blood is their natural origin. These cells are harvested from the umbilical cord blood of newborns, making them inherently compatible with human biology. This compatibility significantly reduces the risk of immune rejection, a common problem with manufactured or lab-grown cells. Since the immune system is less likely to recognize cord blood stem cells as foreign, the chances of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and other immune reactions are considerably lowered.

Wide Range of Therapeutic Applications

One of the primary advantages of using stem cells from cord blood is their natural origin. These cells are harvested from the umbilical cord blood of newborns, making them inherently compatible with human biology. This compatibility significantly reduces the risk of immune rejection, a common problem with manufactured or lab-grown cells. Since the immune system is less likely to recognize cord blood stem cells as foreign, the chances of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and other immune reactions are considerably lowered.

Lower Risk of Viral Contamination

Since cord blood stem cells are collected right after birth, they are less exposed to environmental viruses and pathogens compared to adult cells. This lower exposure reduces the risk of viral contamination, which is a significant concern in cell therapies. Manufactured cells, depending on their source and production process, might carry a higher risk of contamination or require more stringent purification processes.

Ethical Considerations and Availability

The collection of stem cells from cord blood is non-invasive and poses no risk to the donor (the newborn), which addresses many ethical concerns associated with stem cell research. In contrast, the production of manufactured cells, especially those involving embryonic stem cells, can raise ethical questions. Additionally, cord blood can be banked, providing a readily available source of stem cells that can be matched with patients in need, potentially reducing waiting times for treatment.

Reduced Aging and Longer Telomeres

Cord blood stem cells are younger compared to adult stem cells, and they have longer telomeres. Telomeres are the protective caps on the ends of chromosomes that shorten as cells age. Longer telomeres in cord blood stem cells indicate a greater capacity for cell division and regeneration, which is crucial for effective cell therapy.

Genetic Diversity and Potential for Personalized Medicine

Cord blood banks can store stem cells from a diverse range of genetic backgrounds, increasing the likelihood of finding a compatible match for patients from various ethnicities. This diversity is critical in a globalized world and can be leveraged for personalized medicine approaches, offering treatments tailored to the genetic profiles of individual patients.

Cord blood stem cells present several advantages over manufactured cells, including natural compatibility with human biology, therapeutic versatility, lower risks of rejection and contamination, ethical acceptability, and potential for personalized medicine. These benefits make them a valuable resource in regenerative medicine and cell-based therapies.

Targeted Stem Cell Therapies

Advanced Methods for Precise Treatment Area Targeting

Commonly, our patient treatment protocols include a minimum of one intravenous (IV) infusion. This simple procedure introduces cells directly into the bloodstream, allowing them to circulate and reach various parts of the body effectively.

In cases of targeted therapy, our protocols frequently employ direct injections into specific regions. Where required, our medical experts use sophisticated imaging methods, such as X-ray fluoroscopy, to precisely administer cells to the intended areas.

The choice of injection method is tailored to the particular condition being addressed and may encompass:

Intramuscular

Cells are directly injected into a muscle, a procedure usually performed without the need for anesthesia.

Intraarticular

Involves injecting cells directly into a joint for arthritis or orthopedic injuries. Generally does not require anesthesia.

Intradiscal

Cells are administered into spinal discs and facets, typically necessitating intravenous sedation.

Intrathecal

Involves injecting cells directly into the spinal canal, usually performed with local anesthesia.
