Stem Cells Transplant-a New Hope for Diabetic Nephropathy Patients
What are stem cells?
Stem cells are unspecialized cells which have the ability to divide and differentiate into any type cells. They can self-renew to produce more new and healthy cells to replace the damaged cells. Stem cells，cultured artificially are infused into the body under the best status.
What is stem cell transplant?
Stem cell transplant is an infusion of healthy stem cells into the body, similar to blood transfusion. These stem cells, transplanted into the body will move to the damaged area to differentiate into kidney cells which would replace the damaged and old cells. Stem cells transplant is a very simple and short process without pain and risk.
What kind of stem cells is used?
Stem cells can be classified in several ways. The first ways is by potential. The division when classifying by potential are: totipotent, pluripotent, mulipotent, unipotent. The second way to classify stem cells is by the type of tissue from which they are isolated. The two types are: adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells. In our hospital, we use umbilical stem cells and Mesencymal stem cells. Umbilical cord blood stem cells are a great source of multipotent adult stem cells. Umbilical cord stem cells should not be considered a moral threat. They are isolated from a recently born baby’s umbilical cord blood. The umbilical cord contains large amounts of hematopoietic stem cells, high concentrations of high level progenitor cells. People who use umbilical cord blood cells have a higher recovery rate due to its characters.
Mesencymal stem cells are multipotent stem cells which widely exist in all adult organs and tissues. They have the unique characters such as low immunogenicity, immunomodulatory effects and immune modulating mechanism. Mesencymal stem cells are believed to have the promise to change the treatment of human disease.
The process of diabetic nephropathy treatment in our hospital
Firstly, comprehensive examinations by the advanced equipment are done to evaluate your condition. Secondly, our experts on diabetes and kidney disease will analysis your condition and make out a specific therapeutic schedule for your separated condition. Thirdly, traditional Chinese medicine is used to clean the internal environment which aims to provide better environment for the application of stem cells. Finally, stem cells are performed.
Is stem cells transplant safe?
Now, maybe you are doubtful about the safety of stem cells transplant. In fact, the safety of stem cells has already been proved by plenty of experiments before they are used in clinic. Don’t worry about that.
The above is some information about how to treat kidney disease and diabetes. If you want to know more details, you can consult our experts online. We are glad to help you!
