Stem cell therapy is a new regenerative medicine therapy based on the replacement of damaged cells by cells from embryos, cloning, or even so-called therapeutic cloning. Stem cell therapy is now a great practical medical treatment being applied all across the world, including in numerous, hospitals and clinics collaborating with carefultrip in Iran by the utmost experienced Iranian and international doctors. Children’s Medical Center is one of the medical hospitals in Iran, Tehran, collaborating with carefultrip, which has a cell therapy department specifically dedicated to treatment of diseases with this innovative technology.
Currently, stem cell therapy can be effective for many known diseases such as Alzheimer, Parkinson, type 1 diabetes, heart diseases and both types of osteoarthritis and indeed many more. Stem cells are able to renew themselves and produce different types of cells to repair all kinds of damaged tissues and organs. Within our body, we find stem cells everywhere: in the skin, the liver, the muscles, the blood, etc. and they participate in the renewal of tissues. The advantage of adult stem cells is that they can be taken directly from the patient, cultivated and re-injected, with no particular risk of rejection.
Depending on the therapeutic goals, different cell products can be used for different tasks. The doctor will recommend options that suit each patient best. All of cellular products are prepared and grown in well-equipped, specialized, and certified laboratories across Iran, and if necessary from international laboratories. Another great advantage for the stem cell therapy is that the whole procedure will not take longer than two to three hours to be accomplished and that the patient will not need to be hospitalized afterwards.
The potential of stem cells in regenerative medicine is immense: indeed, with their enormous replication rate and their possibility of multiple evolution, stem cells can reproduce in neuronal, cardiac, immune cells, etc. The stem cell therapy in Iran have led to incredible medical advances, improved the treatment of certain pathologies and continue every day to deliver their secrets to researchers in Iran and worldwide.
