Stem Cell Therapy

Scientifically proven method to rejuvenate the body from the inside out

Why is Stem Cell Therapy Important to your Health?

Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine to repair damaged cells within the body by reducing inflammation and modulating the immune system.

Stem cell therapy in around the world have been used to treat various medical conditions such as autoimmune, neurological, orthopedic conditions and traumatic injuries, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, COPD, Parkinson’s, ALS, Stroke recovery and more.

What happens when Stem Cells are reduced with age?

Stem cells are cells serve as a repair system for the body. On average, the cells in our body are replaced every 7 years. But, we can’t avoid ageing which is a natural phenomenon where over time our body is not able to renew or replace dying cells.

Stem cells are reduced with age, and thus unable to stimulate regeneration. The ageing process naturally leads to decrease function, illness and mortality.

Externally, we lose hair, our skin wrinkle and sag. Internally, our organs start to fail, we lose the capacity to think and remember, our muscles shrink, our bones become brittle and our hormone levels drop.

Stem cells which are found in our body are non-specific cells without any tissue-specific structure. They can easily replicate themselves to form specific cells such as heart muscle cells or nerve cells and to perform specific functions.

Research are now showing that stem cells can slow down the progress of some diseases by replicating into specific cells and replacing the damaged cells in the body; thus restoring the vitality and functionally of the organs.

In fact, stem cells can also be expanded outside the body under laboratory conditions and later transplanted in the defective area of the organ for it to regain its functional efficiency.

Because of this anti-ageing property, cosmetic formulations based on stem cell therapy are increasingly being introduced to the market to halt the mark of ageing on the skin and restore its youthful glow.

What are the 2 Main Types of Stem Cell in Malaysia?

The human body has two key types of stem cell in Malaysia that are currently showing great promise to mankind: Hematopoietic Stem Cells and Mesenchymal Stem Cells.


Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs)

HSCs that are found in the cord blood and peripheral blood are multipotent stem cells that have the potential to differentiate mainly into blood components such as red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, etc.


Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)

MSCs readily differentiate into neurons as well as bone, cartilage, muscle, and fat tissue. MSCs aren’t currently being used in treatment, but researchers are very excited about their potential in the emerging fields of gene therapy and cellular repair.

It’s thought MSCs may have the ability to treat disorders such as diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, stroke damage or even spinal cord injury.

 

What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells Plus (MSC+)?

MSCs is a special type of human cell with a reputation of “Multipotency”. MSCs possess amazing potential for degenerative diseases and is known to secrete factors that may help various tissues in the body to regenerate and to differentiate into different types of specialized cells such as bone, muscle, cartilage.

The use of MSCs are reputed to have the following effects:

  • Slowing down the aging process.
  • Rejuvenate the skin, protect and restore damages.
  • Improves skin elasticity.
  • Improve metabolism, stamina and overall energy level.
  • Reduce scars and skin indentations.
  • Enhance healing of wound.
  • Improves eye sight.
  • Increase core body temperature.
  • Improve one’s libido
  • Arthritis
  • Reduce risk of diseases such as heart diseases, diabetes, alzheimer, immune disorder
What is the Process of Stem Cell Therapy?

The Stem Cell Therapy is performed by a carefully screened panel of certified doctors, specialist and medical centers.

Pre-therapy medical screening and consultation by a medical doctor is recommended to ensure that you are suitable to receive the therapy which includes:

  • Medical check-up
  • Blood test

Upon establishing suitability, the medical doctors will then schedule for a personalized cell therapy session. The safest and simplest method for delivering the stem cell is done intravenously. Other than the initial slight pain at the injection site, the patient should not experience any other discomfort.

Depending on the condition of the individual, the stem cell can be administered in one session or over three sessions. This is to ensure that the treatment can deliver maximum effect.

Is Stem Cell Therapy Safe?

Stem cells using our autologous (own-derived) method are safe as the stem cells are obtained from our own body. This eliminates the possibility of host versus graft reaction. With this type of therapy, patients act as their own donor.

Apart from our own stem cells, the next safes source is from the umbilical cord, allogeneic (donor-derived), of a newborn. The reason why is because stem cells from the umbilical cord have no immune markers on them.

Our world class Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Laboratory backed by a team of highly skilled and trained laboratory scientists is one of the few laboratories in Malaysia which is certified cGMP awarded by NPRA (BPFK), a division of the Malaysian Ministry of Health.

In our GMP laboratory, the collected umbilical cord is cleaned, prepared and subjected to cellular dissociation to isolate the stem cells. The isolated stem cells are then expanded to the required number of cells within Cleanroom Class A environment. Based on our extensive research and experience, we only expand our stem cells to a phase where it offers the best results when introduced into a human body.

How Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCS) can reverse ageing?

MSCs have the ability to regenerate the tissue from which they are derived over the lifespan of an individual. New cells are formed from mother cells which in turn can be formed by stem cells.

If ageing is the process of the body breaking down in the face of damage, this is where MSCs come in as are an anti-ageing treatment that can counteract the damage that causes ageing or autoimmune related diseases (illness) and bring our bodies back to optimum health.

If I decide on Stem Cell Therapy, what should I do?

You must first understand the objectives of stem cell therapy and its limitations. Then seek a qualified physician who can discuss with you the goals of therapy. Finally, ensure that the stem cells utilized are from the highest quality produced under proper approved procedures (cGMP).

Our qualified healthy ageing specialist, Dr. Wong Chee Hin understands how stem cells function, its role in the immune system and its regenerative properties. We will be happy to discuss them with you.
