4 Benefits of Stem Cell Treatment

Safe

Safe

It is a highly safe treatment without the risk of major side effects seen in drug treatment and tumorigenesis like iPS cells.

No Rejection

No Rejection

Because stem cells used are collected from each patient, there is no rejection due to transplantation.

Minimal Invasive

Minimal Invasive

Since only a small amount of fat is collected from the abdomen, it is minimally invasive for the patient.

Ethical

Ethical

There are no ethical issues like iPS cells and ES cells.
*Stem cell therapy is a new treatment in the research stage, and scientific arguments to assure safety and therapeutic effects are not yet complete.

6 Effects of Stem Cell Treatment

It is expected to suppress inflammation and improve symptoms caused by arthritis, vasculitis as well as chronic pain.

Reduces active oxygen and prevents cellular aging.

Prevents cell suicide (apoptosis).

It regulates and suppresses the immune system and is expected to have an effect on autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, atopy, and Crohn’s disease.

Because it creates new blood vessels and improves blood flow, it is expected to have an effect on arteriosclerosis and lower limb ischemia.

Differentiation of stem cells into various cells is expected to be effective in activating normal tissues and regenerating structures and functions lost due to deficient or deformed tissues.

Stem Cell Treatment

Introduction

Our body is made up of 37 trillion cells, of which 20 billion cells die every day, but the homeostasis maintenance function creates new cells and replaces with lost cells every day.

  • There are no rejection or side effects because the cells are collected from yourself.
  • The wound when collecting fat is about 1cm or less, and it is a minimally invasive outpatient treatment.
  • Safe and simple treatment.
  • There is a possibility of restoring the function of the tissue and repairing the defective part.

Doctor Consultation

To decide the most suitable treatment plan for each patient.

Blood Tests

To check on infectious diseases.

Fat Collection

Usually takes 20cc of fat from the stomach.

Treatment

Local injection or I.V.

Follow Up

3 months, 6 months or 12 months after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

A cell that has differentiation ability necessary for maintenance and regeneration in the body. Cells have the following two characteristics:

1. Differentiation: Create cells such as blood, nerves, bones, muscles, blood vessels, etc.

2. Self-replication ability: Repair of deficient cells.

Immediately after administration, symptom improvement is induced, and the repair effect is expected to continue for several months.

Although there are individual differences, we will follow up with 3 months, 6 months, 12 months after the first treatment, and administer stem cells as watching the health condition.

Stem cells have the property of accumulating at the treatment site due to the “Homing Phenomenon”. Therefore, it is known that when stem cells are injected into the blood circulation, they naturally accumulate at the desired site and show a therapeutic effect.


Homing Phenomenon
: A phenomenon in which stem cells transplanted from the periphery reach a niche (Lesion Site). It is known that induction signals such as cytokines and adhesion factors are supplied from the lesion, and the stem cells sense the induction signals and accumulate in the lesion to show a therapeutic effect.

  • Safe and minimally invasive
  • In addition to the ability to differentiate into fat, bone, and cartilage similar to bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells, it also has muscle differentiation ability not derived from bone marrow
  • Strong proliferative ability
  • Effects of aging due to proliferation and decrease in bone differentiation ability are small

Generally stem cells support human growth, and there are more stem cells in childhood than adults. Stem cells still exist when mature and apparent growth stops, and they serve to replenish cells when tissue is damaged throughout life. Tissue stem cells such as the brain and heart are difficult to isolate from the body and are difficult to use for treatment, and so mesenchymal stem cells attract attention.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells:

  • Can differentiate into fat and bone
  • It can be obtained relatively easily from adult bone marrow, adipose tissue and dental pulp.
  • It has the ability to differentiate not only into osteoblasts, fat cells, muscle cells, chondrocytes, but also into cells such as  internal organs and  neurons.
  • In recent years, it has been reported that it has an immunosuppressive action and has the property of accumulating in tumors.

(Research on the use of mesenchymal stem cells to prevent rejection after transplantation and use of cancer gene therapy drugs as carriers are also being conducted. In addition, mesenchymal stem cells are also used in the field of tissue engineering.)

Stem cells include Pluripotent Stem Cells that can be created by any cell in the body, such as embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells), and Tissue Stem Cells obtained from the tissues and organs such as skin and blood.


Tissue Stem Cells that make up for lost cells are roughly divided into bone marrow stem cells and adipose stem cells. Adipose stem cells are characterized by fewer ethical problems and cancer risk than ES cells and iPS cells, and less invasive to patient’s body than bone marrow stem cells.

  • Since autologous adipose stem cells are used, there is no rejection due to transplantation
  • Low risk of tumorigenesis and high safety
  • Minimal invasive surgery
  • No ethical issues like ES cells
