Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly are stem cells?

Bone marrow (the soft, spongy tissue found in the center of certain bones in your body) produces blood stem cells. Stem cells can be viewed as the “building blocks” of the body as blood stem cells can mature into any of the other normal blood cells. This includes:

  • red cells – which carry oxygen
  • white cells – which fight infection
  • platelets – which stop bleeding

A stem cell is therefore a type of cell which can produce a more specialized cell which is needed in the body, such as a muscle cell or a red blood cell. This process of becoming more specialized is called differentiation.

Why do we need stem cells?

Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells. Most of these cells can live for  a few days to a few years before they die and need to be replaced. Stem cells provide new specialized cells to replace dying ones.

How could stem cells help patients?

Many patients around the world have diseases where cells in their bodies don’t function correctly (for example, insulin-producing cells in diabetes patients) or start to die without being replaced (such as in Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease). Stem cell therapy can be used to replace these defective or dying cells, restoring normal function to the organ and improving the patient’s quality of life.

What is regenerative medicine?

The goal of regenerative medicine as applied to stem cell therapy is to repair (or improve) organs or tissues that is damaged by disease, aging or trauma.

What is the difference between stem cell therapy vs PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy?

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is not a stem cell therapy, but PRP does have growth factors that help with tissue repair. When PRP injections are combined with stem cell therapy, the cell therapy is rendered even more effective. Growth factors help instruct stem cells on what to do, hence best results are obtained when stem cell therapy is combined with stem cell therapy.

What are exosomes and their role in stem cell therapy?

Exosomes are tiny vesicles that are released from one’s own cells.  Exosomes play a critical role in cell communication and can transfer molecules like RNA and proteins to other cells. In stem cell therapy, exosome therapy is used to enhance tissue repair and regeneration, leveraging their ability to facilitate recovery and reduce inflammation.
