Adipose Stem Cell Therapy Continues To Impress Doctors
Once again, stem cells derived from the fat stores of patients are in the news, adding to the growing body of scientific evidence that adipose stem cell therapy is on track to be one of the most successful methods of treating a long list of injuries and chronic diseases like never before* A recent article published on the online site of Stem Cells Translational Medicine, outlines the latest medical study to demonstrate that stem cells taken from adipose tissue are more potent than stem cells removed from bone marrow. This particular finding involves research into the modulation of the immune system.*
In medical clinics like NSI Stem Cell in Florida adipose-derived stem cells are exclusively used to treat an impressive and varied list of ailments ranging from joint injury to hair loss to chronic conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis.* The field of regenerative medicine is developing at a remarkable rate, and adipose stem cell therapy is quickly becoming one of its rising stars.*
What Is Adipose Stem Cell Therapy?
Adipose stem cells, also known as adipose-derived stem cells, are adult stem cells that are found in abundance inside the fat stores of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs or buttocks. Medical science has discovered that our own fatty stores are an easily accessible and rich resource of a much sought after adult stem cell called a mesenchymal stem cell (MSC). MSCs are multi-potent cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types needed by the body to repair itself.
The reason science is so excited about this specific method of harvesting MSCs, and why medical clinics like NSI Stem Cell focus on their use in treatments, is that the amount of MSCs in our bodies’ natural fat stores are far more abundant than in, for example, bone marrow. To harvest these essential MSCs for regenerative medicine procedures from bone marrow involves complicated and highly invasive surgery. But the MSCs used in adipose stem cell therapy based treatments can be harvested in abundance from a small sample of the patient’s own fatty tissue. Gathering these MSCs requires only a local anesthesia, and the adipose stem cell therapy is performed in a matter of hours on an out-patient basis. Plus, post-treatment recovery time is little to none.
How Adipose Stem Cell Therapy May Help Modulate The Body’s Immune System
The clinical studies done at Leiden University Medical Center’s Department of Immunohematology and Blood Transfusion in Leiden, The Netherlands indicate that the disease fighting capability of adipose-derived stem cells actually surpass MSCs harvested from bone marrow.* This means that an adipose stem cell therapy could be developed that may help modulate the body’s immune system.* This could have far-reaching implications for developing new regenerative medicine regimens in the fields of skin grafting, the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease and more.*
While conducting the study, researcher used MSCs harvested from both bone marrow and fat tissue. In comparing each source’s capability in regulating the immune system, they discovered that smaller doses of the adipose-derived stem cells were as effective in this regulation as larger doses of the bone marrow-derived MSCs. But the adipose stem cells went even a step further. In secreting essential substances called cytokines (such as interferon, interleukin, and growth factors) that naturally occur within the immune system, the adipose stem cells out-performed the MSCs taken from bone marrow.
This latest study only bolsters the many that have come before that support the use of adipose stem cell therapy in regenerative medicine, both those therapies already in wide practice and available to the public as well as in the development of stem cell therapies to come.*
What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic
When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.
Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.
The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.
What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:
1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.
2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.
3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics
4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.
5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.
Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.
