About Endocrine Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are the basic cells which are present inside the human body. These are specialized cells, characterized by their ability to divide and create another cell like itself. Haematopoietic-cell transplantation (HCT) is a potential therapy used to cure autoimmune disease.
Procedure takes about 2-3 hours & is performed under local anaesthesia.
- Stem cells reconstitute all types of blood cells & treat a number of fatal diseases.
- Stem Cell Therapy involves the administration of haematopoietic stem cells (HSC), which are self-renewing and capable of giving rise to all mature haematopoietic cell types and possibly to some non-haematopoietic cell types.
- The patient is made ready for transplant by potent immunosuppressive treatment generally using chemotherapy or radiotherapy.
- Then autologous haematopoietic cells or allogeneic haematopoietic cells are transferred to restore the host immune system.
