The 7 Most Common Questions about Stem Cell Therapy
1.) Where do your stem cells come from?
Our mesenchymal stem cells are derived from umbilical cord tissue (Wharton Jelly) and Placenta. They are from live, healthy births done at a fertility clinic. These are not from abortions or any other unethical sources. We provide a 3rd party lab analysis of our stem cells to all patients. Dream Body Clinic only provides certified stem cells that are the highest quality stem cells. Our Lab is certified to produce stem cells and certified as a stem cell cryo-bank. These 2 permits are from COFEPRIS (Mexico’s FDA). This guarantees that they have the highest quality standards in the collection, expansion and application of mesenchymal stem cells. This is to ensure a highly safe product that is free of pathogens. Our quality control is based on good manufacturing practices and the standards recommended by the International Society of Cell Therapy and the Latin American Mesenchymal Stem Cell Society of which we are members. The laboratory enters the qualification of ISO 5 (Cleanroom), which means they meet the necessary requirements to make injectable products. We have specialized equipment such as binder brand incubators and laminar flow hoods that guarantee the complete innocuousness of the cellular product. The cells are obtained from Wharton Jelly (Umbilical Tissue) and Placenta tissue which is extracted from previously selected donors under a rigorous medical screening that includes complete clinical history, serologic tests (Retro Virus analysis), with high inclusion criteria so that they can be candidates for the donation. Once the sample has been obtained, several studies evaluated by third-party laboratories authorized by COFEPRIS are carried out, such as flow cytometry, microbiological tests (mycoplasma and endotoxins). #1 of The 7 Most Common Questions about Stem Cell Therapy
2.) What do stem cells treat?
Our Mesenchymal stem cells can treat joints, autoimmune diseases and chronic degenerative diseases. For joints the stem cells guide the cellular repair and regeneration of ligaments, tendons, cartilage, muscle, bone and other tissues. For autoimmune diseases like Type 2 diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis or MS the stem cells essentially reprogram the immune system to stop attacking the body and instead protect it. For chronic degenerative diseases such as heart disease we find that the stem cells are able to seek out inflammation and guide the repair and regeneration of the root cause of that inflammation. #2 of The 7 Most Common Questions about Stem Cell Therapy
3.) Why are these treatments not available in the USA, Canada or Europe?
They are available, but not in the same way as we can do here in Mexico. The USA, Canada and Europe do not allow the cultivation (replication) of mesenchymal stem cells. They have yet to provide a solid reason as to why this can’t be done. Unfortunately stem cells are needed in very large quantities to make a real difference. The stem cells offered in the USA, Canada or Europe are from bone marrow or fat and without replication they are lucky to get 10,000 to 100,000 stem cells. We put 25 million stem cells in a knee and do IV’s of 300 million stem cells for autoimmune diseases. It becomes a numbers game and they cannot compete. #3 of The 7 Most Common Questions about Stem Cell Therapy
4.) Are Stem Cells Safe?
There are over 100,000 published studies on mesenchymal stem cells on google scholar and nearly as many on pubmed. All of these studies and real world applications have shown them to be safe. They lack human leukocyte antigen (HLA) so there is no chance of your body rejecting them. We provide a 3rd party analysis of the cells to show that there is no chance of infection from contamination as seen here – https://dreambody.clinic/index.php/certified-stem-cells/ #4 of The 7 Most Common Questions about Stem Cell Therapy
5.) How do Stem Cells Work?
Here is a video explanation – What are Stem Cells? How do they work?
Stem cells are parent cells which are capable of regeneration and differentiation into a wide range of specialized cell types. Once injected, stem cells follow inflammatory signals from damaged tissues and have multiple ways of repairing these damaged areas.
The mesenchymal stem cells we are using are considered to be multipotent (they can transform into different cell types but cannot form an organ) but not pluripotent (capable of giving rise to several different cell types). In the body, these cells Do NOT function by transforming into different cell types or tissues.
They act via anti-inflammatory activity, immune modulating capacity, and the ability to stimulate regeneration. As we age we have fewer mesenchymal stem cells in our bodies. In fact by the time we hit bone maturity we only have 10% of the stem cells that we previously had. So we are 10 times as big and only have 10% of these stem cells left. The stem cells guide traffic and manage the immune system cells. So when we have inflammation the immune system cells are signaled to go to that area. In their perfect state these immune system cells such as T-Cells would only attack antigens and pathogens. Unfortunately since we have fewer mesenchymal stem cells to guide the T-Cells, they get confused and accidentally attack the area of inflammation. So instead of helping, the immune system compounds the problem. When we put stem cells back into our system then things run the right way and our body can heal itself naturally. #5 of The 7 Most Common Questions about Stem Cell Therapy
6.) Have the Mother’s that donate the Umbilical Cord and Placenta been Vaccinated?
We do not accept donations from mother’s that have had any of the COVID-19 vaccines. We feel that more testing needs to be done on the long term effects of these vaccines. You also do not have to worry about any DNA transfer from mesenchymal stem cells as they work via the paracrine effect. Meaning that they are like the managers on the construction site, telling the workers what to do. They send out cytokines, trophic factors, chemokines and exosomes that influence other cells to do their jobs properly. The stem cells do not become anything else so not DNA transfer. #6 of The 7 Most Common Questions about Stem Cell Therapy
