Stem Cell Therapy is about using human stem cells to regenerate damaged tissue. Stem cells have the remarkable potential to develop into many diﬀerent cell types in the body. In addition, they serve as a sort of internal repair system, dividing to replenish other cells. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.
At Metabolix Wellness we offer Umbilical derived stem cell therapy. This therapy contains cells that are processed to preserve the cytokines, growth factors and proteins found in the Wharton’s Jelly of the umbilical cord for homologous use. The cells found here contain hundreds of powerful cells including Mesenchymal Stem Cells. These cells are “multi-potent” which means that they have the ability to differentiate into muscle, tendons, ligaments, bone, and cartilage. Once introduced into the damaged or diseased area, the stem cells can often help damaged tissue and regenerate new healthy tissue.
- This therapy is considered an innovative regenerative treatment. It has been found to be helpful for a wide variety of conditions from physical injuries, to chronic illnesses such as COPD, Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis and more.
- The cells are processed from donated human tissue from full term deliveries according to the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) standards. Benefits of this type of therapy are that no liposuction procedures are needed, and in addition to the mesenchymal stem cells, they also contain other beneficial cells naturally found in the amniotic fluid. This includes growth factors, cytokines, collagen, hyaluronic acid, fibroblasts and more. These cells contain immunomodulatory properties: they do not pose risk for metastasis of tumor cells; they promote proteins that halt the cell cycle of cancer cells and promote tumor suppressing genes; and they invoke the body’s immune system to repair damage. These cells can also be injected into joints, infused intravenously (IV) or inthrathecally (spinal).
- There is no down-time for stem cell therapy, and all appointments are completed in our office.
- FDA Guidance: These cells are processed from donated human tissue from full term deliveries and is regulated as a human cell, tissue, or cellular or tissue-based product (HCT/P) under 21 CFR Part 1271 and Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act.
