Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetes

April 27, 2013

stem cell therapy for diabetesDiabetic mellitus (DM) is one of the existing hormone diseases. It is often known as a “non-infectious epidemic disease. Most of the  peoples have diabetic issues worldwide, and their number is improving. The wide range of diabetics is expected to increase by 50% by 2025.

Diabetes mellitus issues is recognized by a high blood sugar (glucose) level resulting from either inadequate blood insulin production in the body (type I diabetes) or cells inappropriate response to the produced blood insulin (type II diabetes).

Where Stem Cells Come From

There are three important types of stem cells: embryonic, fetal and adult, each with different sources. Zygotes (fertilized eggs) are recognized to have the greatest stage of plasticity as they can become any types of cells. They are known as “totipotent” stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are caused by embryos that make from zygotes, and are proficient to make continually while keeping pluripotency, which is less plastic than totipotency.

Treatment using Stem Cells

We have designed a fetal stem cell transplantation-based technique (excluding pancreatic beta-cells) for diabetic issues therapy. This technique has confirmed to be effective for diabetic issues types I and II therapy and is secured by patents of many nations. Stem cell therapy of diabetic issues results in noticeable hypoglycemic impact, i.e. loss of glucose levels, enabling to decrease the amount of exogenous blood insulin by 50–70%.  Diabetes therapy with fetal stem cells causes long-term medical remission in more than half of cases.

Effects of diabetes treatment with fetal stem cells

Stem cell treatment of being used for the people suffering from diabetes results in important enhancement in patient’s condition. In some cases at the beginning of illness, it may result even in the full recovery.

  • Decrease of glycemia in patients with new-onset insulin-dependent diabetes issues.
  • Problem of the early post-transplantation improvements.
  • Improvement of psycho-physiological situation.
  • Immunity reconstruction.
