Adult Stem Cell Fact Sheet

The harvesting and re-implantation of bone marrow has been a routine therapy in the United States for decades. Stem Cell therapy is a technology developed from the expertise of processing that same bone marrow to identify markers to achieve a particular therapeutic effect targeting a specific organ.

Within a simple 20-minute procedure, done with local anesthesia, we harvest adipose (Fat) from your own body.

The adipose is then processed by the Tissue Genesis ICellator; a state of the art, single-use, sterile, automated system that isolates a potent and pure mixture of mesenchymal stem cells and endothelial progenitor cells, that have the ability to; heal/repair/help the damaged tissue.

We then inject these cells into sites of tissue injury to induce local stem cells to be activated and begin repair of tissue. We combine the local injection with an intravenous infusion of YOUR adipose derived stem cells to activate stem cells throughout the body, including stem cells in the bone marrow derived to help enhance tissue blood flow.

It is all about improving the “Quality of life”.

The future of medicine lays within; as all we are doing is using our own concentrated cells to heal/repair/help an organ in need or reverse unforgiving progressive disease.

Stem cell use in the United States

The most difficult element to understand about adult stem cells is their purpose in the human body. While embryonic stem cells are, in effect, the blank slate upon which all of the tissue, organs and structure of the human body is drawn, the adult stem cell has a different, though related, overall function. It is a repair cell. Sitting quiescently in bone marrow, tooth enamel, adipose (fat) tissues and other places in the body, these cells “wake up” upon receiving signals related to injury – inflammation.

Their function is to begin the cascade of healing when the human body is injured. The number of stem cells in an adult human begins declining shortly after birth. It is, in fact, this decline in the number of stem cells that ultimately leads to wear, deterioration and finally, death.

So, when the human body is injured, the adult stem cells “wake up”, move through the body to the site of injury, express proteins to down and regulate inflammation, express other proteins to stimulate new cellular growth, recruit new growth factor proteins and then, themselves, begin to change into the very cellas that have been damaged. Through this process, these cells are giving and receiving signals with surrounding environment. This is an extremely important aspect and one of the central discoveries regarding stem cells and the point that differentiates them from any other cell.

The most common therapeutic use of stem cells by physicians in the United States is to harvest them from one part of the body where they exist in greater amounts and then re-implant them at the site of injury – where they are most needed but are in short supply. For adults with diminishing stores of stem cells, this is an effective way to stimulate healing at sites of injury.

Frankly, this process of harvesting cells (be they bone marrow, skin, fat or any other cells) from one part of the body and then re-implanting them in another part has been an important aspect of medicine for, literally, hundreds if not thousands of years.

What makes this discussion so relevant is that physicians are now specifically targeting stem cells (i.e., repair cells) for concentration, re-implanting and expansion before re-implanting.

Stem Cell Therapy (SCT) is not covered by your insurance in the USA, however we have financing options available through a third party vendor designed specifically to cover the cost or partial cost of your procedure.

Autologous stem cells in the United States

The discovery that a particular cell existed which was, in effect, a blank slate upon which all other cells can be developed stimulated an explosion of basic scientific research. Through the 1950s, 60s and 70s this research characterized these cells, began to unravel their secrets and begin to provide clues as to their therapeutic potential.

Almost immediately, scientists landed on the idea that physicians could harvest stem cells from one part of the human and re-implant them in another. The first widespread practice of doing exactly this therapy was among ophthalmologists.

Limbal stem cells

Limbal stem cell transplants were the first autologous stem cell transplant and were first used in the 1970s. In this procedure Limbal stem cells are taken from the healthy eye of the patient or live donor (usually a sibling or parent). During this outpatient procedure, which lasts about one hour, stem cells are harvested from the healthy eye or the donor’s eye and then transplanted to the affected eye. If the transplant is successful, the stem cells will produce a new layer of epithelial cells in the patient’s eye. The success rate of growing the new cells from transplanted Limbal stem cells varies from 25% to 70%, depending on the underlying condition of the eye.

Bone marrow stem cells

The best-known and most widely characterized adult stem cell in the literature is the mesenchymal stem cell (MSC). This is the stem cell most physicians are seeking when they harvest bone marrow from a patient and then transplant it in a concentrated form back into that same patient to treat many different diseases. Bone marrow aspiration and then concentration has been a common practice for decades.

Bone marrow is a rich source of not only MSCs but also growth factor proteins and the nutrients required for healing and repair.

Adipose (or fat) tissue stem cells

Quite a bit of research into adult cells has focused on adipose tissues since, according to numerous studies; they contain the highest concentrations of adult stem cells. BUT harvesting adipose tissue and then concentrating and extracting stem cells have proven to be a very difficult process, so much so, that better results are still achieved by using bone marrow harvest.

A simple, non-scientific explanation

As we develop in our mother’s womb we are connected through the umbilical cord, delivering everything the unborn child needs to form their organs until the time of birth.

The miracle of life is contained within the blood inside the umbilical cord, supercharged with potent “Mother Cells”, also known as “Stem Cells” and they are so potent they have the power to create tissue and organs.

When we grow up, our Stem Cells are no longer that powerful and are somehow diluted circulating in our blood stream. They can heal us when we get sick but CAN NOT repair an entire organ that has suffered major trauma, like a heart attack, Stroke or any progressive disease.

The Principle of what we do is very easy to understand:
• Within a simple 20-minute procedure, done with local anesthesia, we harvest adipose (Fat) from your own body.
• The adipose is then processed by the Tissue Genesis ICellator; a state of the art, single-use, sterile, automated system that isolates a potent and pure mixture of mesenchymal stem cells and endothelial progenitor cells, that have the ability to; heal/repair/help the damaged tissue.
• We then inject these cells into sites of tissue injury to induce local stem cells to be activated and begin repair of tissue. We combine the local injection with an intravenous infusion of YOUR adipose derived stem cells to activate stem cells throughout the body, including stem cells in the bone marrow derived to help enhance tissue blood flow.
• The advantage of our approach is that we use YOUR own stem cells, minimizing any risk of loss in benefit that can occur with repeated doses of someone else’s stem cells. Furthermore, because we do not culture your stem cells to multiply them, we are able to treat you on the day of your stem cells harvest, administer stem cells intravenously into your system and activate your body’s own bone marrow stem cells, to further enhance tissue repair throughout the body.

Stem Cell Therapy (SCT) is not a cure for disease but could significantly improve your quality of life and that of your family’s.

What makes stem cell therapy successful?

What makes a Stem Cell Therapy successful has to do directly with the quality of the cells processed in the lab and the delivery protocols.

At Rejuvenare Stem Cell Therapy, we have mastered safety and efficacy with our proprietary protocols.

None of the SCT (Stem Cell Therapy) offered by Rejuvenare Stem Cell Therapy are “EXPERIMENTAL” as we do them in a routine most efficient way following each time our proven protocols in Peru, a country where SCT is Legal and Regulated.
