Stem Cell Therapy

What are Stem Cells? Where do Stem Cells come from?

Stem Cells go where your body needs them to go and become what your body needs them to become. You could take your own fat tissue, bone marrow, or blood and get stem cells. However, this is a surgical procedure and cost could range from $5,000-$40,000. Also, you may not be able to learn how many stem cells from your fat tissue or bone marrow are actually injected into your body. The good part is the stem cells are your own so you don’t have to worry about allergic reactions. The bad information is that at birth you have 1 stem cell for every 10,000 cells; at 16 you have 1 stem cell for every 100, 000 cells; and at 60 you have 1 stem cell for every 2-3 million cells. So, the younger you are the more likely you will have a good outcome.

Another option is to try placental cell stem cells. Placental stem cells per milliliter range from 1,000 to 3,000 stem cells per mL. You will need a lot of fluid. Amniotic fluid has stem cells but the government has not given a number of stem cells per mL because of so much debris in the amniotic fluid (i.e. water, stem cells, urine and other body waste). There is a fair amount of tissue growth factor which is good for healing.

Human umbilical cord stem cells are the result of a healthy mother giving birth to a healthy baby and the family does not wish to store the baby’s cord blood. Instead of being thrown away, one can take the stem cells in the cord and use them for joint problems, or any number of pathological problems (for example: dementia, chronic fatigue, auto immune conditions, brain injuries, Parkinson’s, and Leukemia). These stem cells are screened by the tissue banks for disease before they are released for use. Umbilical Cord Stem Cells can grow any tissue in the body and will not cause any allergic reactions. The number of stem cells in cord blood range from 1.5 to 4.5 million stem cells per mL. Human Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are high quality, potent, robust and consistent.


-Anyone can be treated since HUCT cells are immune system privileged.
-Best anti-inflammatory activity, immune modulating capacity and optimum ability to stimulate regeneration.

-Can be administered multiple times in uniform dosages that contain high cell counts.
-Mode: Intra-articular (Injected directly), I.V. infusion.

Is it Safe and Why?

-Because HUCT stem cells are less mature than other cells, the body’s immune system is unable to recognize them as foreign and therefore they are not rejected. Thousands of patients have been treated with umbilical cord stem cells and there has never been a single instance of rejection.

-HUCT stem cells also proliferate/differentiate more efficiently than “older” cells, such as those found in the bone marrow and therefore, they are considered to be more “Potent”.

Tissue Bank Regulations

-Allogenic Stem Cells are considered a tissue and regulated by the AATB.
-All cells are rigorously tested for diseases, according to tissue bank regulations.
-No expanding of product.


-A Stem Cell can only be used for a homologous function of the cell. That simply means that a stem cell can only be used for a function that it normally performs in the body. ie. Formation of tissue, bone, cartilage, blood vessel, nerve, and cell regeneration.
