Stem Cell Therapy Delivers Patients with Renal Failure a Brand-New Life2012-05-14 11:05
Stem Cell Therapy is a breakthrough in regenerative medicine. It brings infinite promise for patients with Renal Failure and delivers them a brand-new life.
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy refers to injection of healthy cells into the patients’ body by intravenous injection. It does not need surgery at all so it is free of trauma completely.
Stem cells are unspecialized cells with renewing and differentiating potentials. Firstly, they can renewing themselves and still remain stem cells through cell division. Secondly, in right laboratory or body conditions, they can be induced to differentiate into tissues-or organs-specific cells with special functions.
The two common types of stem cells are adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells. At present, adult tissues are the main sources of stem cells in clinical application.
In our hospital, the stem cells are abstracted from umbilical cord blood. In the past, umbilical cord will be discarded after the baby is separated from mother. However, the recent researches prove that umbilical cord blood is rich in stem cells and they may be the most primitive cells in human body. For immunological immaturity, free of pollution, umbilical cord blood cells become prior to other types of stem cells.
How does it work in treating Renal Failure?
After the stem cells are injected into the patients’ body, they will immigrate into the renal injury sites for their homing ability.
The stem cells will be stimulated by their surrounding injured renal intrinsic cells and environment to become new cells similar to those cells they come in contact. As they grow and become specialized, they are able to transform into new blood vessels and kidney tissues. Finally, the kidneys will be restored very well and have a significant improvement in renal function.
EXCITING NEW THERAPIES using stem cells are emerging all the time and the promise they can deliver patients in need are endless. One of the best sources of stem cells are from baby's umbilical cord blood. I urge all parents to learn more about the life-saving potential cord blood banking can offer and should you not bank privately, please DONATE so those cells may deliver hope to another person in need.
