Autologous Stem Cell Treatment

Stem cells are the building blocks of the body that promote healing and regeneration of cells and tissue. Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life and growth.  Stem cells serve as a sort of inner repair system dividing essentially without limit to replenish other human body cells throughout life.  When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell – a myocyte, a red blood cell – an erythrocyte, or a brain cell – a neuron, and many more.

Stem cells are distinguished from other cell types by two important characteristics. First, they are unspecialized cells capable of renewing themselves through cell division.  Second, under certain physiologic or experimental conditions, stem cells can be induced to become tissue- or organ-specific cells with special functions.

With the knowledge of these unique regenerative characteristics of stem cells, it gives rise to new treatment opportunities of many diseases.  Medical science is rapidly developing in this area.  At present time, stem cells are used in the treatment of almost 100 diseases, and this number is constantly increasing.

Northway Medical Centre in Vilnius offers its patients advanced regenerative medicine services. The Celution 800 System developed by the company Cytori is a unique medical technology that enables real-time, point-of-care collection of the patient’s fat tissues and preparation of a mixture of their stem and regenerative cells for use in plastic or reconstructive surgery during the same procedure.

This technology is being used in regenerative medicine and plastic surgery. Currently, autologous cells are used in the treatment of degenerative joint disease, critical limb ischemia, imminent below-the-knee amputation or in cases when surgical treatment cannot be applied and drug therapy is ineffective. Results of the clinical trials have shown that autologous cell therapy has been successful in 60% of patients in preserving the leg and avoiding amputation. Autologous cell therapy is also used in the treatment of difficult-to-heal venous ulcers and ulcers caused by diabetes mellitus, difficult-to-heal wounds. It can also help to slow the ageing process and regenerate skin on the face and neck.Rodyti mažiau
