Stem cell therapy though a solution to a number of degenerative cell problems has been known to be a painful and risky procedure as the cells were usually extracted from bone marrow and even after transplant there was the potent risk of GVHD or graft versus host disease, in which the donors cells did not tolerate the recipients cells causing fatal complications!
However stem cell hospitals today use a different, advanced and much more effective technique to extract hematopoietic stem cells. The umbilical cord blood is an important stem cell centre, the cells extracted from here are ten times more in number than in bone marrow, no pain is involved and the stem cells are more tolerant and adaptable. More over cord blood transplants are much effective for siblings or other family members of the infant donor. Thus if this cord blood is stored after delivery in can be very helpful later on in case of any transplant or surgery.
The advantages of hematopoietic stem cells are galore, they are known to cure fatal and terminally degenerative ailments like blood cancer, autism, motor neuron diseases, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s etc. Millions of people are affected by these sicknesses around the world, they need not succumb to these diseases any more, stem cell therapy is the answer to all their problems!
There are a number of hospitals in India researching on the therapy and coming up with different approaches to make these transplants more effective and to increase the current success rate of 40 to 60% to a 100%. Stem cells India looks a lot promising from the number of research centres and hospitals that are coming up across the country, they are using state-of-the-art instruments and some are also collaborating with foreign medical centres to better their facilities and approach!
Stemcyte India is one of those organisations that have foreseen the bright future of this regenerative medical science and are working towards it’s betterment. It is an excellent venture between the best medical centres and pharmaceuticals in India and the US and provides stem cell treatment to people suffering from a number of sicknesses.
