Methods of Use

Your own adult cells from bone marrow: Promising therapy…

The use of endogenous adult stem cells from yourself (autologous), in contrast to embryonic cells, is ethical, and legally straightforward. At Cells4health, the entire process of collection, purification, concentration and transplantation are guaranteed to be in compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) standards, thus assuring highest possible quality and safety for the patient.

For the last few years, attempts at therapy with adult stem cells from bone marrow have been carried out at university hospitals. This means that unlike animal testing with embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells are in-part, already being clinically tested. The well-documented success in cardiology by Prof. Dr. Bodo Strauer from Düsseldorf in Germany can be seen as an example. He treated a patient suffering from a series of heart attacks for whom common therapies could not assure any chance of survival with the patient’s own bone marrow stem cells. Nine days after the stem cells had been injected into the diseased area, the patient was able to leave the intensive care unit. Up to now, more than 300 patients have been treated using this procedure – most of them successfully.

The Cells4health treatment is based on the therapy experiences of thousends of patients, treated in cooperation with other universities and clinics around the globe. At present, the results of treating a variety of severe and disabling diseases when classical therapy fails, are very encouraging.

Classical use of stem cells: allogenic transplants…

The use of adult stem cells is by no means completely new. Stem cells have been used for the therapy of various types of blood cancer (leukemia) for more than 40 years now. Usually this is done by means of an  allogenic bone marrow transplantation, i.e. bone marrow is taken from a suitable matching donor. The hematopoietic stem cells contained in the bone marrow settle then into the recipient’s body and produce fresh blood cells there. In this respect, the treatment differs from that which is offered by Cells4health, because we use exclusively the patient’s own bone marrow or fat stem cells (autologous transplantation).

Use of stem cells in regenerative medicine now: autologous transplantations…

However the spectrum of applications for the use of adult stem cells is much wider as previously thought. Examples today include the use of adult stem cells for rebuilding cartilage and destroyed wrist, skin,  bone tissue or even for the construction of an entirely new windpipe (keyword: Tissue Engineering). Two studies published in medical journals in 2007 showed for the first time that endogenous insulin production in type 1 and type 2 diabetics is activated through therapy with autologous adult stem cells. The questions of whether new insulin-producing cells are formed or whether existing cells are regenerated have not yet been clarified, but is for the patient suffering from the disease finally of secondary importance.

The field of neurology is being examined very intensively, since classical therapies often fail and final results are unsatisfactory for the patient. Almost daily evidence is accumulating and demonstrating the positive effects of stem cell therapy in a broad range of neurological disorders. The use of adult stem cells offers a new treatment approach for previously incurable diseases such as Spinal Cord Injury, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or Multiple Sclerosis. Here the defined aim is either to replace the damaged neurocytes with stem cells or to regenerate them. One approach that is of special interest for stroke patients: researchers from the “Fraunhofer-Institut für Zelltherapie und Immunologie” in Leipzig, Germany, were able to show curative successes in animal stroke models with adult stem cells. At Cells4health almost on a daily base we confirm seeing those results in patients. Once you have seen and realized what this means for  the patients and their caregivers, one gets really passionate about this therapy. This is why we now offer this therapy to you…
