Stem Cell Treatment At Tiantan Puhua Hospital 4

  1. 1. Introduction of our Stem Cell Treatment and doctors Tiantan Puhua hospital uses the newest breakthroughs to provide effective and safe stem cell treatments to a wide range of neurological and physical disorders. We use the latest knowledge of stem cells behavior in the human body within an individually tailored medical plan according to the patient’s condition. Using stem cell transplantation, intensive physiotherapy and medicines, this combination of therapies has so far proved itself to be most efficient in bringing a high level of recovery to our patients. What are stem cells? What are stem cells? Stem cells are the master cells of the human body. What define stem cells from other cells is their ability to self-generate themselves and the ability to differentiate into other cell types. Stem cells are at the center of a new field of science called regenerative medicine. All stem cells, regardless of their source, have three general properties: they are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods; they are unspecialized; and they can give rise to specialized cell types. Self-regeneration is the ability of stem cells to divide and produce more stem cells. During early development, the cell division is symmetrical i.e. each cell divides to gives rise to daughter cells each with the same potential. Later in development, the cell divides asymmetrically with one of the daughter cells produced, also a stem cell and the other a more differentiated cell (such as brain cell, blood cell, etc.). When stem cells are being transplanted into the body and arrive (through migration or through direct injection) into injured part of the brain being targeted for tissue regeneration, the stem cells are come into contact with microenvironment in the body, where the stem cells can settle into the tissue surrounding them. Stem cells can typically be broken into four types: Embryonic stem cells - Stem cells taken from human embryos Fetal stem cells- Stem cells taken from aborted fetal tissue Umbilical stem cells - Stem cells take from umbilical cords Adult stem cells - Stem cells taken from adult tissue
  2. 2. At Tiantan Puhua hospital 7 main types of stem cells are being used: 1. Human fetal Neural Stem Cells (hNSC); 2. Human bone Marrow-derived mesenchymal Stem cells (hBM-MSC); 3. Human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUCMSC); 4. Human retinal pigment epithelial cells (hRPE): 5. Human insulin producing cells (hIPC, unipotent), clinical application: Diabetes. 6. Human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hAMSC), clinical application: cosmetic treatment, and an alternative treatment of BMMSC. 7. Human hematopoietic stem cells (hHSC), clinical application: reestablish hematopoietic system. Human fetal Neural Stem cells (hNSC) are self-regenerating, multipotent cells, found in the human brain which have the potential to differentiate into three major cell types: nerve cells (neurons), astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, and to self renew sufficiently to provide an adequate number of cells in the brain. When brain cells are damaged or are dying, due to a disease or an injury, fetal neural stem cells are the best known source for treatment. Since most brain injuries, stroke, degenerative diseases and Demyelinating disorders affect several areas in the brain, the most effective and safe procedure to deliver neural stem cell into the brain is via a Lumbar Puncture (also called Spinal Tap): a spinal injection in the lumbar area (lower back) into the CSF (Cerebral Spinal Fluid). In our clinic, hNSC is applied to treat the patients with Cerebral Palsy, Brain Injury, Stroke, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Batten Diesease, Degenerative Diseases, and other neurological disorders. Human Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells () are self-renewing and multipotent stem cells existing in bone marrow tissue, which in vitro are able to differentiate into certain cell types of all three germ layers, such as neuron, cartilage, osteoblast, hepatocyte and lipocyte cells . These cells regulate immune activity and provide niche (microenvironment) for surrounding cells. hBM-MSC can be extracted from adult bone marrow or from fetal bone marrow. Clinically, these cells have been identified significantly improve the conditions of the patients, who suffer from autoimmune diseases, nervous system diseases, coronary disease, hematoloic malignancy, or graft versus host disease(GVHD).
  3. 3. Human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (h) are directly isolated from umbilical cord tissue of infants. hUCMSC are very similar to the mesenchymal cells derived from bone marrow tissue, because they also can be induced and derived into distinct cell types. These cells are used clinically as an alternative treatment as hBM-MSC. Human retinal pigment epithelial cells (hRPE) are of neuroectodermal origin and are found in the inner layer of the retina. These cells produce levodopa. They can be isolated from fetal and adult human eyes, grown easily in culture, and stored frozen for prolonged periods. Preclinical studies suggest the safety and effectiveness of human RPE cells as a suitable cell type to serve as a potential durable source of levodopa producing donor for implantation into the striatum of patients. In recent years, hRPE cell transplantation has been used to treat Parkinson's disease. RPE cells are easily obtained from donated eyes and can be proliferated in vitro. Then the cells are attached to microcarriers and transplanted into patients' striatum. The stereotaxic intrastriatal implantation produced a constant amelioration of patients' parkinsoniams without using any immune suppression. hRPE cells were obtained from donated eyes, which are usually stored in an eye bank. The cells can be easily prepared and they proliferate abundantly in vitro. It is generally calculated that one eye can be used to treat several patients. Compared with cells isolated from FVM tissue, fetal RPE is obtained from aborted fetus. Since there are ethical controversy concerns of using embryos in transplantation, it will be of great advantage to obtain and use RPE cells for cell replacement therapy. Human insulin producing cells (hIPC, unipotent), clinical application: Diabetes.
  4. 4. Human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hAMSC), clinical application: cosmetic treatment, and an alternative treatment of BMMSC. Human hematopoietic stem cells (hHSC), clinical application: reestablish hematopoietic system. Stem Cell laboratory SOP The stem cells we produce at TP undergo several tests for quality control, which includes and provides: 1. Safety control of original material: We test for the following infectious diseases of the donor, including HIV, HAV, HBV, HCV, Syphilis etc. All the results should be negative. 2. Filtration of the cultured cell: We filter cells by checking the surface antigen and immunogenicity through inducing cell differentiation and testing FACS regularly. 3. Double checking of Safety before clinical use
  5. 5. 4. Before we deliver the stem cells to patients, we do a series of test to avoid virus infection, bacillus, tumors growth, mycoplasma, mutation, residual culture medium, etc. These tests will insure the safety of the stem cells. Tiantan Puhua hospital can treat patients with the following diseases. If you don’t see your disease or injury listed below, please contact us for an evaluation.
