Autologous Stem Cell Therapy
What if restoring form and function of degenerated areas of body is now possible without any major surgery or anesthesia or traveling too far? Thanks to this miracle elixir called Autologous Stem Cell therapy which is available at Gawai Healthcare, Specialty Wellness Centre in Bangalore.
Autologous Stem Cell Therapy can be a mouthful to say. The growing popularity among the treatment choice for many other ailments apart from defeating blood and bone borne cancers is the latest hot topic in regenerative medicine.
In Regenerative Medicine, these cells are considered to be clinically significant due to their high proliferation and differentiation capacities, paracrine activity, and immunologic privilege. In cosmetic dermatology your own stem cells are used as fillers, the stem cells become your skin cells, making the cosmetic corrections more lasting and natural.
What are Autologous Stem Cells?
Autologous Stem Cells are immature pluripotent cells that become a range of different type of mature cells/tissues such as collagen, skin, cartilage, heart, lung, and pancreas etc. The term “Autologous” means the stem cells are obtained from and then donated back to the same individual.
They are stored throughout our bodies (for e.g. in blood, fat tissue, bone marrow etc). When injury or illness occurs, these stem cells aggregate in the damaged area where they begin naturally rebuild and repair the tissue.
What are the therapeutic implications of Autologous Stem Cell?
Autologous Stem Cell Therapy mimics the natural healing process, but at an accelerated pace. The painless, in-office procedure involves harvesting stem cell from your own body tissue like Peripheral blood, adipose (fat) tissue, bone marrow, etc depending on the patient condition.
Stem cell can be collected from peripheral blood and adipose (fat) tissue. Adipose tissues have more stem cells but less growth factor; while peripheral blood stem cells are less in number than adipose tissue derived stem cells, but they have more growth factors with them. Both peripheral blood and adipose tissue stem cells are less painful to collect than bone marrow stem cells, and they yield more stem cells than bone marrow collection
The stem cells are then extracted by an elaborate lab process known as apheresis. The physician will store the cells by freezing them; between harvesting the stem cells and administering it back on to the patient.
How safe is the treatment?
Unlike other stem cells like embryonic or allogeneic (donor) stem cell therapies, Autologous Stem Cells have clear advantage of being extremely safe and no risk of ‘host VS graft’ disease because it uses body’s own stem cells, which are naturally programmed to heal you. So the treatment is completely safe, ethical, with no side effects and absolutely no risk of rejection.
