Stem cell therapy
is a healing technique that is relatively new in several countries. If you’re applying the treatment a severe disease, stem cells may be the right option. However, you must know in detail what it is and how to use stem cells.
1. Stem Cell Therapy for Stroke
In the treatment of stroke attempted to use mesenchymal stem cells (mesenchymal stem cells) from autologous bone marrow. Mesenchymal stem cells obtained from bone marrow aspirate. Once injected peripheral MSC will pass the blood brain barrier to the brain area damaged. Provision of intravenous MSC will reduce the occurrence of apoptosis and led to the proliferation of endogenous cells after stroke.
Research using mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) from autologous bone marrow that is administered intravenously to 30 patients with stroke also improve outcomes assessed from parameters Barthel Index and Modified Rankin Scale.
2. Stem Cell Application for Curing Diabetes
In diabetes, there is a deficiency of insulin or a lack of sensitivity to insulin. In this case the transplantation of islets of Langerhans cells is expected to meet the needs of insulin. At first, about 10 years ago, only 8% Langerhans islet cell transplants are successful. This happens because a large rejection reactions so that the required amount of steroids.
In fact, the greater the steroid is needed, the greater the metabolic needs of the insulin-producing cells. Much research has been done for diabetes took source of stem cells from fetuses, cadaveric, and of embryonic stem cells. Back research is needed to discover how to create optimal conditions in the production of insulin, so it can replace insulin injections permanently.
3. Stem Cell Therapy Method in Heart Disorder
Heart has many muscles and in order to work properly, these organs require blood. This is because there is food in the blood and the blood is channeled through pipes coronary. Dr. Yudi Oktaviono, Sp.JP (K) explained that coronary heart disease was caused by a blockage in the coronary pipes. He said if the pipes are clogged coronary exists, the heart muscle will be dry. Stem cells in the recipient inserted into dry muscles in order to grow back.
Then, some doctors also said that there are also studies that incorporate stem cells into the coronary arteries. It aims if blood is blocked, then the stem cells formed new blood vessels.
4. Stem Cells for Parkinson Disease

In Parkinson disease, there is death of nigra-striatal neurons which are dopaminergic neurons. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays a role in the subtle body movements. With reduced dopamine, then in the case of Parkinson’s disease symptoms are subtle movement disorders.
In this case the dopamine neuron transplants is expected to improve the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Mensifalik tissue to cure Parkinson’s disease is transplanted into the brains of patients with Parkinson’s weight and monitored by means of PET (Positron Emission Tomography).
Utilization of “stem cells therapy” in clinical treatment is highly possible, because this technology has the ability to change and replace specific cells that are broken, into various types of cells that are needed so it can replace the function of damaged cells. How? Are you interested into trying stem cell therapy?
