Our Stem Cells Therapy Programs:
Our Thailand based stem cells Therapy Programs consist of either essay writing service site sigmaessays.com a 3-Day Executive Program or a 7-Day Revitalization Program. Our 3-Day Executive Program makes use of autologous adult stem cells derived from the patient’s adipose tissue (fat tissue) while our 7-Day Program makes use of PBSC adult stem cells derived from the patient’s bone marrow.
Within these programs, we have developed various options to cater to various patient requirements. For instance, our “Health Regen Basic Program” caters to our “healthy but with warning signs of aging” patients such as a busy executive, or middle-aged person that needs a simple boost, or our 70 year old patient that wants to eliminate his/her chronic cold and constant tiredness. Our Health Regen D Plus Program targets patients with diabetes type 2 concerns while our Health Regen Facial Rejuvenation Program targets patients that desire to revitalize their internal organs and tissues as well as refresh their facial appearance.
Our stem cell therapy programs are conducted in a state of the art essay writing service site theessayclub.com facility in either Bangkok or Chiang Mai in Thailand. All programs include the injection of adult stem cells and other growth factors as necessary. We do NOT make use of embryonic stem cells.
3-Day Executive Program – Adipose Tissue Adult Stem Cells Treatment Method
The Adipose Tissue Stem Cell method (ATSC) makes use of a patient’s own adult stem cells generated from Adipose (Fat) Tissue. Typical steps to the Adipose Tissue Stem Cell Method are as follow:
- Laboratory Preparation
- Stem Cells Injection
- Post Program Care
Step 1. Harvesting
Using a proprietary but simple procedure similar to tumescent liposuction, a minimum of 100cc of adipose tissue is harvested from the patient. In some cases, additional quantity of adipose tissue may be harvested as additional adult stem cells may be required for banking purposes and injection at a later stage.
Step 2. Laboratory Preparation
Once the adipose tissue has been extracted from the patient, it is sent to our laboratory in Bangkok for clean up and for the activation of the stem cells. Key steps involved in this process include:
- Breakdown of the adipose tissue using a combination of proprietary Cell Preparation Medium.
- Separation of the Stromal Vascular Fraction which contains the ASC from the fat cells.
- Isolation of Adult Stem Cells and other progenitor cells from the Stromal Vascular Fraction.
- Activation of the isolated Adult Stem Cells by suspending them in the person’s own platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) growth factors and exposing them to a proprietary laser beam. This ‘awakens’ or activates the dormant Adult Stem Cells.
Step 3. Stem Cells Injection
The activated Adult Stem Cells are administered back to the patient through one or more of the following modes of administration:
- Intravenous: The ASCs are administered through a standard intravenous drip
- Fat Transfer: The ASCs are mixed with the fat filler-biomaterial mix before reintroduction
- Topical: The ASCs are administered directly into a localized area different from their tissue of origin
- Bank: Banking of stem cells is imperative for some procedures that require repeat administration. This is done under USA certified protocols
Step 4. Post Program Care
The Adipose Tissue Procedure is non-invasive and requires no surgical procedure. For this reason, none of our patients are negatively impacted by our stem cell therapy. The most important side effect recorded to date seems to be better sleep. Many of our patients after the treatment mention that for a few weeks after the injection, they have these great periods of “elevated feelings” followed by sleepiness. This is a good omen as the stem cells can better deliver while the patient is asleep.
In case of an emergency, one of our staff is available at all times in Bangkok or Chiang Mai and can also be reached by telephone or via e-mail. Upon returning to their respective country, we also encourage patients to discuss the results with their physician and contact us in the months following the stem cell therapy to update us on their progress.
7-Day Revitalization Program – PBSC Adult Stem Cells Treatment Method
The Peripheral Blood Stem Cell method (PBSC) makes use of a patient’s own adult stem cells generated from the Bone Marrow. Typical steps to the Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Method are as follow:
- Bone Marrow Mobilization
- Stem cell harvesting
- Isolation, analysis, and concentration
- Stem cells injection
- Post Program Care
Step 1. Bone marrow Mobilization
PBSC method for stem cell extraction is non invasive and involves the mobilization of bone marrow stem cells with the assistance of mobilization factors. The mobilization factors are injected into the patient for four consecutive days and cause the stem cells from the bone marrow to enter the bloodstream. Generating stem cells this way is simple, safe and does not involve the risks associated with localized anesthesia and multiple invasive marrow aspirations.
On day one and three, blood samples are also taken. The first blood sample is to map the patient’s blood profile while the second blood sample is used to confirm that the stem cells are adequately entering the bloodstream.
Step 2. Stem cell harvesting
On the fifth day, the patient comes to one of our clinics or hospitals for the stem cell collection. This is done by removing (harvesting) the stem cells from the patient’s circulating blood through a process called apheresis (from the Greek “aphairesis” for removal).
This process takes two to three hours and is pain free. Most patients take a nap during the procedure. A physician accompanied by a nurse oversees the safety and comfort of the procedure. If anything out of the ordinary was to occur, medical staff would be immediately available. All procedures are to the highest standard. Thailand is known worldwide for its medical proficiency and treats over 1 million overseas patients every year.
Step 3. Isolation, analysis and concentration
Once collected, the red blood cells containing the stem cells are delivered to our laboratory. The stem cells are first isolated by separating them from the red blood cells and blood plasma. The resulting stem cells are then analyzed for content as well as tested for the presence of viral markers or communicative diseases such as Hepatitis B and C or HIV. The patient’s stem cells are at all times stored and manipulated under sterile conditions so that the stem cells that will be administered back to the patient are free of viruses, bacteria, or fungi.
Once test results indicate that the stem cells are clear from any potential issues, they are then cultured in laboratory to produce the required amount of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and CD34+. Targeted amount of stem cells for effective transplantation varies from one treatment to the other but usually consist of around 2 million up to 2.5 million stem cells per kilogram body weight of the patient. Before approval is given for delivering the stem cells back to the patient, a quality control test is conducted that consists in measuring 2 key parameters:
- Stem cell vitality measurement
- Stem cell count
Once these parameters are measured, validated and found to be the adequate, additional nutrients are provided to the stem cells to ensure a high level of activity and optimal performance once released in the patient’s body. The entire process is fully documented and the cultured stem cells are not released for injection to the patient until all quality control test parameters comply to our high standards.
Since the cultured stem cells come from the patient’s own bone marrow stem cells, there is absolutely no risk of rejection or complication that may occur when using allogeneic stem cells from a donor cell or public cell bank.
Step 4. Stem cells injection
The method of stem cell injection depends on the patient’s condition and the treatment. Typically, we administer the stem cells using the standard intravenous (IV) method. This is a straightforward method that allows for the distribution of the stem cells throughout the entire body. In combination with our organ specific stem cell factors and nutrients concoction, over the years this method has given us great results for both our Health Regen Programs and Treat Regen Programs.
In some cases, the IV method is replaced by other more involved methods such as by catheter, angiography, or lumbar puncture for the direct administration of stem cells to the targeted organ or tissues. These procedures are more complex and conducted at one of our partner’s hospitals where the patient usually remains overnight for monitoring, and released on the following day(s). The suitable surgery method is chosen according to the patient’s needs and medical records.
Step 5. Post Program Care
The Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Procedure (PBSC) is non-invasive and requires no surgical procedure. For this reason, none of our patients are negatively impacted by our stem cell therapy. The most important side effect recorded to date seems to be better sleep. Many of our patients after the treatment mention that for a few weeks after the injection, they have these great periods of “elevated feelings” followed by sleepiness. This is a good omen as the stem cells can better deliver while the patient is asleep.
In case of an emergency, a Thai Regen staff is available at all times in Bangkok or Chiang Mai and can also be reached by telephone or via e-mail. Upon returning to their respective country, we also encourage patients to discuss the results with their physician and contact us in the months following the stem cell therapy to update us on their progress.
