Stem Cells have been used in medical applications for over 40 years. In most countries the use of these stem cells are an approved method of treating various hematological conditions such as Leukemia and Aplastic Anemia.
Stem cells are biological cells found in all multi-cellular organisms, that can divide through mitosis and differentiate into diverse specialized cell types and can self renew to produce more stem cells. In mammals, there are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells that are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts, and adult stem cells that are found in various tissues. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues.
These cells are capable of performing three important functions with unique abilities:
- Plasticity: Potential to change into other cell types like nerve cells
- Homing: To travel to the site of tissue damage
- Engraftment: To unite with other tissues
This means that, if we inject our specific stem cells into a patient who has a nerve disorder, that cell should migrate to the site of injury attracted by specific chemicals released by the damaged tissue. The cell, by homing to the damaged area will fuse with the damaged tissue by the process of engraftment and become the same tissue by displaying the property of plasticity. In this instance, the stem cell should, for example, become a nerve cell. The rest of the injected cells, which have not migrated or engrafted, will travel to the bone marrow where they will be stored with the body’s blood cells until needed. They can still respond, from the bone marrow, to signals from damaged tissue elsewhere in the body and migrate to that site. This is why responses are sometimes not noted until a few months after treatment. Immediately after the cells are injected, the body secretes numerous chemicals called cytokines. They can cause the remarkable effects sometimes seen immediately after treatment, but are usually transitory, although these effects have persisted on occasion.
Stem cell treatment may well hold the key to the rejuvenation of the damaged cells/tissues and may give you great results after stem cell treatment, but the word cure we cannot use. This is not a guaranteed therapy as some patients vary in the results, but around 80% + of patients treated are showing very positive outcomes.
These stem cell treatment protocols are available in Bangkok, Thailand. The stem cell treatment plans are available as outpatient procedures or as inpatient procedures for patients needing hospitalization. Hospital and nursing fee's are an additional cost, we will supply a full price breakdown and appropriate quotations.Our clinics procure their stem cells from laboratories that utilize the most modern methods of stem cell production, in that the facility must be GLP (Good Laboratory Practice) approved. This means that it has to have an international accreditation recognized by first-world medical authorities like the FDA. Quality cannot be compromised when injecting biological preparations into human beings so production occurs in a sterile environment free of infections and contaminants.

The stem cells are ordered specifically for each patient then packaged into vials, frozen in liquid nitrogen and sent to our storage facility where they are stored prior to each patient’s arrival.Infectious disease status: all batches of stem cells are negative for HIV - 1 & 2, HBV, HCV, CMV IgG are accepted for use. This means we screen rigorously for any viral infections and all batches of stem cells come with a certification of analysis, which each patient will receive a copy of.
