Stem cell knowledge

Stem cells are the cells with specific characteristics, and functions of repairing damaged cell or tissue in the body.

Important properties of stem cell

  • 1. Self-renewal able to divide itself at all times.
  • 2. Remaining after divided, it can still maintain its own property (undifferentiated state).
  • 3. Differentiate to specialize cell when there is any injury, cell or tissue damage in the body, stem cell can change itself in to be the troubled cell, in order to repair or treat that spot. From example, when you scrub the skin to get rid of scurf, stem cell will change into skin cell to compensate the lost cells.

Ability of stem cell

  • 1. Homing automatically runs to the position of troubled cell, damaged tissue, or tissue with inflammation.
  • 2. Differentiation changing itself into the damaged specialized cell.
  • 3. Trophic support secreting substances to induce tissue regeneration.
  • 4. Anti-Inflammation reducing inflammation of cells or tissues.
  • 5. Neo Vascularization producing essential growth factor to help inducing new blood vessel creation, as well as solving problem of scar tissue.
  • 6. Anti-Apoptosis reducing cell death in troubled area.

Type of Stem cell

  • 1. Embryonic Stem Cell it is the stem cell from human embryo, with high purity, and can be used to developing into stem cell for treatment. However, this method of stem cell harvest is similar to killing a child in womb, so it is not acceptable in moral aspect.
  • 2. Adult Stem Cell (Somatic Stem Cell) it is matured stem cell in the body from young age to old. There are stem cell types that can be used differently, and cannot be used as a whole. So they need to be extracted first.

Stem cell advantage

  • 1. Totipotent Stem Cell is the cells that can develop into every other cells type in the body.
  • 2. Pluripotent Stem Cell is the cells that can develop into nearly all cell types in the body, and can be found in fetus from embryonic stage.
  • 3. Multipotent Stem Cell is the cells that can develop into many cell types.
  • 4. Oligopotent Stem Cell is the cells that can develop into some cell types.
  • 5. Unipotent Stem cell is the cells that can develop into only one specific cell type.

Plasticity

Transformation of cell from one type into another, in order to repair or cure parts of the body.

  • 1. Hematopoietic Stem Cell transformation from white blood cell, red blood cell, blood platelet to nerve cell, cardiac muscle cell, liver cell.
  • 2. Mesenchymal Stem Cell transformation from cartilage cell, tendon cell, joint cell, muscle cell to white blood cell, red blood cell, blood platelet, skin cell, hair root cell and hair cell.

      • 6. Gains enough cells for treatment.

    Stem cells transplantations

    After harvesting stem cells, we can use them for various type of transplantations

    • 1. Autologous Transplantation using one's own cells for oneself.
    • 2. Allogeneic Transplantation using one person cells in another person, or someone who is blood-related, twin, or someone else. In case of using the cell for someone else, HLA test needs to be done in order to find out about cell compatibility.
    • 3. Xenogeneic Transplantation using human cells for animal, or using animal cells for human, which is still unacceptable method.

    Caution in using stem cell for treatment

    When using stem cell for treatments, there are many factors that need to considered, for example

    • 1. Amount of usable stem cell
    • 2. Cell vitality injecting dead stem cell into the body is no different from injecting plain water into the body.
    • 3. Infection test
    • 4. Injecting location injecting location affects stem cell's flow to the needed area, such as, when having injury, the doctor will inject stem cell near the injury.
    • 5. Syringe needle size

    Factors affecting stem cell treatment

    • 1. Age In old people case, the treatment result and recover will be slower than young people.
    • 2. Treatment location Lesion locations will give result of treatment differently. Also, stem cell injecting location selection will affect the treatment speed differently.
    • 3. Amount of stem cell used in the treatment
    • 4. Taking care of oneself This is very important, because stem cell treatment is not the same as medical treatment which gives fast result. Also, the stem cell has ability of homing, so if the patient has 2 troubled areas, the stem cells may split up to cure both areas, resulting in low performance. Moreover, if using stem cell in allogeneic transplantation, the patient will need close supervision in order to prevent cell rejection from the body. The patient need immunosuppression drugs, or may also have to receive infection preventing drug and other supportive treatments.
    • 5. Adult stem cell selection To select between Hematopoietic stem cell or Mesenchymal stem cell.

We harvest stem cell using Apheresis machine

It is a machine that can takes blood out of the body, and separate red blood cells, white blood cells, and stem cell; then giving the rest back to the body in cycle, just like normal blood circulation. This machine is used in harvesting stem cell from one's own blood.

Diseases that can be cure by stem cell therapy

Most of the diseases that can be cure by stem cell therapy are those caused by deterioration of the body, or injury; not diseases caused by genetic.

Diseases that can be cure by stem cell therapy

Harvesting stem cells

Step 1: The patient receives blood test to examine the condition of blood cell, as well as kidney, liver and other organs' function test, if needed.

Step 2: The doctor will give injection to stimulate stem cell creation. The first injection will be done in the same day that the patient received blood test. Then, the patient needs to come to receive injection again in continuous 3 days, which will be 4 times altogether. For the best result, the patient should come in the same time for every injection. For example, if in first day the patient received injection on 13:00; then he/she should come to receive injection again on 13:00 in the second, third and fourth day, or ± 1 hour of that time. After all injections are complete, the doctor will do the blood test again, to evaluate amount of stem cell in the patient's blood. As for the symptoms that may occur during injections, there are some backaches, which will occur much in the second and third day. Also there may be slight fever, or feeling hot and cold, which is the sign that patient's body is creating more stem cells, so this is normal thing. If the backache is intense, the patient can take painkiller such as paracetamol. During 4 days of stem cell stimulating injection, the patient should:

  • 1. Take calcium supplements such as CDR Calcium-D-Redoxon, from the first day of injection until the day of receiving stem cell back to the body; in order to help the bone's function.
  • 2. Avoid doing hard exercise.
  • 3. Be careful not to get any injuries.
  • 4. Avoid alcoholic drinks.
  • 5. Get enough sleep.

Step 3: The doctor will harvest stem cells, by having the patient sit down on sofa and be awake for 2-4 hours. During that, the doctor will draw patient's blood from one arm into Apheresis machine. The machine will keep only the stem cell, and return other parts back to the body via other arm. During stem cell harvesting, the patient can chat and drink water as normal. After procedures are done, the patient can drive home without facing any side effects.

Step 4: After harvesting stem cell, we will wait for 3 days. Then the doctor will give stem cell back to patient's body, which will takes 2 hours. After these procedures are done, the patient can go home right away. Also, he/she can drive home without facing any side effects.

After harvesting and receiving stem cells back, the patient should:

  • - Eat high protein foods
  • - Be careful not to get any injuries
  • - Avoid doing hard exercise in the first month

Let's take a look at conclusion of stem cell therapy procedures.

  • 1st day: blood test and stem cells stimulating injection
  • 2nd , 3rd ,4th day: stem cells stimulating injection
  • 5th day: the doctor will harvest your stem cells
  • 8th day: the doctor will give stem cells back to your body

Now stem cell therapy course is finished completely.
