About The Procedure
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem Cell Therapy harnesses the body's own healing mechanisms to
repair and regenerate damaged/diseased tissues and organs. It involves extracting and purifying a high yield of stem cells,
processing them, and delivering them back to the body.
Stem cells are derived from different sources in the body. Adistem has developed an autologous procedure in which the patients' own
stem cells are reactivated by Platelet-Rich Plasma(PRP) and Laser Stem Cell Activator and returned to their body. The system has been designed to
automate the proprietary process and methods for the improvement.
The procedure is being used successfully for anti-aging and for improving from a range of degenerative diseases.
What are Stem Cells?
Stem Cells are the body's "master cells" with the ability to differentiate into multiple cell and tissue types. They are the
basic building blocks of life, the basic cell from which our bodies are made. They are formed at conception and specialized to become
all the different tissues of the body.
Our body's Stem Cells can renew themselves indefinitely and
differentiate into many specialized cells such as muscle, nerves, organs, bone, blood and so on. These properties make stem cells
different from the body’s other mature cells which are permanently committed to their fate. For example, skin cells can only divide and
generate new skin cells. The ability of stem cells to become other types of cells (known as "plasticity") makes them critical in the
process of repairing and renewing body tissues and organs.
After birth, our body retains stem cell reserves in various organs, and throughout our lives we tap into those reserves to repair and
replace injured or diseased tissues. Unfortunately, our stem cell reserves are finite and as they become depleted, the regenerative
power of our body decreases and we succumb to diseases, disorders, and damage due to aging.
Stem Cell Therapy can replenish our reserves and help fight a wide range of diseases and disorders.
Stem Cells' combined ability for potentially unlimited self-renewal and their capability to generate all the mature cell types in the
adult make this therapy possible.
Various Sources of Stem Cells
- Adult Tissue
- Hematopoietic Stem Cells
- Mesenchymal Stem Cells
- Neural Stem Cells
- Muscle Derived Stem Cells
- Pancreatic Stem Cells
- Hepatic Stem Cells
- Epithelial Stem Cells
- Cord Blood and Placenta
- Fetal Tissue
Stem Cells reside naturally in several reservoirs including -- but not limited to -- adipose tissue, bone marrow, embryonic and fetal tissue,
and peripheral and umbilical cord blood. Cells residing in embryonic or fetal tissue are referred to as embryonic stem cells, while cells
residing in mature tissues in the adult's body, e.g., adipose tissue and bone marrow, are referred to as adult stem cells.
Research and usage of
Embryonic Stem Cells have various ethical and political issues worldwide. Actistem Ltd. has developed a proprietary
procedure using stem cells derived from adipose fat tissue.
Adistem works exclusively with adult stem cells and has become a leader in the emerging field of clinical regenerative medicine.
Adistem's Autologous Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Therapy
Adipose, also known as fat tissue, is the richest and most accessible known source of stem cells. It contains a specialized class of stem
cells comprised of multiple cell types that promote healing and repair. Adipose stem cells have been shown to differentiate into multiple cell
types including muscle cells (heart, smooth and skeletal), bone, fat, cartilage, and nerve. Beyond differentiation, regenerative cells may
provide therapeutic benefit through the release of growth factors and other therapeutic healing mechanisms.
The major advantages of adipose tissue as a source of regenerative cells, which distinguish it from alternative cell sources, include:
- Yield: A therapeutic dose of regenerative cells can be isolated in approximately one hour without cell culture.
- Safety: Patients receive their own cells (autologous-use) so there is no risk of immune rejection or transmission.
- Versatility: Stem cells from adipose tissue benefit from multiple mechanisms-of-action.
