Stem Cells

Stem cells are a broader term for different kind of cells present in the body. These have the ability to divide and differentiate into specialized cells like brain cells, blood cells, heart muscle cells or bone cells.

Stem cells are now being widely tested as a part of regenerative medicine. These have already been approved for the treatment of cancers of the blood and bone marrow. Many more diseases are being treated using stem cell therapy in Mexico which still need approval in the USA.

Apart from this, latest researches confirm that stem cells can be a potential treatment for are COVID-19 positive patient and have an underlying condition.

What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?

Mesenchymal cells are a kind of adult stem cells. These are capable of forming our skeletal tissues, such as cartilage, bone, and fat.

These cells can be found in the bone marrow, fat tissues, fallopian tube, peripheral blood cells, and in the umbilical cord cells and can be easily extracted from these sites.

How can Mesenchymal cells treat coronavirus infected patients?

The mesenchymal cells are known to boost human immunity.

With the 7-patient study, researchers are able to solidify the following inference:

  • Mesenchymal cells are safe for critically-ill COVID-19 patients[7]Journal of Aging and Disease
    Transplantation of ACE2- Mesenchymal Stem Cells Improves the Outcome of Patients with COVID-19 Pneumonia
    “…the intravenous transplantation of MSCs was safe and effective for treatment in patients with COVID-19 pneumonia, especially for the patients in critically severe condition….”

  • Alleviation of pneumonia-like symptoms associated with the virus
  • Down-regulation (“blocking”) of proinflammatory (bad) cytokines within 3-6 days
  • A dramatic increase in the expression of anti-inflammatory (good) cytokines

Do allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells have any side effects?

No, mesenchymal cells do not pose any threat to the host’s body when transferred from a different donor. It owes to the immuno-suppressive properties of these cells [8]International Journal of Biomedical Sciences
The Immune Properties of Mesenchymal Stem Cells
“they also elicit immuno-suppressive effects that allow them to bypass allogeneic barriers …”

which does not initiate an antibody response in the host’s body.

What is Novel Coronavirus- COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a new strain of the virus that belongs to the coronavirus family. The symptoms of COVID-19 infection are as follows:

  • Dry Cough
  • High Fever
  • Sore Throat
  • Headache
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Low oxygen saturation
  • COVID19 induced  pneumonia

How does COVID-19 Virus cause death in humans?

COVID-19, officially known as Sars-CoV-2 does not cause the death of any person. The death is, however, caused by the body’s own immune response against this virus. The following procedure will shed some light on the mechanism.

Site of infection

On infection, the virus quickly moves to the windpipe or trachea and stays there for some time.

The person may not develop any symptoms at this time. This is called an infection. But, once the virus starts multiplying, symptoms may appear.[9]BBC
Coronavirus: What it does to the body
“It first infects the cells…infect yet more cells….”

The incubation period or the period between infection and appearance of the first symptom varies from one person to another, but generally, it is 5 days.

Body’s Immune Response

Once this virus enters the human body, the natural defence system of the body triggers an immune response.

This further releases certain chemicals called cytokines and chemokines in the body.

Mucous Accumulation

Due to these chemicals, lungs are inflamed and these experience an excessive fluid build-up[10]The Hindu
Coronavirus | How does the immune system respond to a coronavirus attack?
“In the nose and upper regions of the…prevent their ingress…”
View in Article
. This fluid also houses T-cells which are potent natural killers. These TNKs, however, attack the body’s own cells along with killing the pathogens.

Dry Cough

The significant symptom of Coronavirus infection-a dry cough is initiated. In this way, the lungs are trying to evacuate the mucous out of the body.

This cough is a potential carrier of the COVID-19 virus and proper social distancing and other precautions should be taken to stop the spread.

Oxygen Stress and Death

Meanwhile, the TNKs are attacking the healthy cells of the body. Slowly and gradually, the lungs become dis-functional and are unable to exchange oxygen with the blood, causing oxygen stress.

The continuous lack of oxygen causes the death of the infected patient.

Who is at higher mortal risk with Coronavirus and Why?

It is observed that the mortality rate of old people, as well as patients with severe underlying conditions like Type-2 diabetes or chronic lung disease, is high due to coronavirus-related symptoms. [11]Centres for Disease Control and Prevention
People Who Are at Higher Risk for Severe Illness
“Based on what we know now, those at high-risk…particularly if not well controlled …”

Why Choose Mesenchymal cells for Coronavirus in Mexico?

There are many other reasons why Mexico is the best place for receiving mesenchymal stem cell treatment for COVID-19 infection.

Approved Technology

Using stem cell to treat different diseases is a legalised procedure in Mexico. Also, the Mexican government is very flexible in using novel scientific research like Mesenchymal cells in COVID-19 patients.

This is, however, not true for the USA as stem cell technology is not approved by the US-FDA.

Licensed and Authorized Physicians

Our partner clinic has scientists working on stem cell technology for more than 12 years. They are licensed physicians and are authorized to treat patients using human cells.

Our partner clinic has already applied for IND approval by the US-FDA for stem cells in Type-2-Diabetes patients.[12]Giostar
GIOSTAR In Process of US FDA Approval for Type 2 Diabetes Clinical Trial
“in the process of approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to conduct type 2 diabetes clinical trials focused on the development of stem cell-based treatment.”

Easy Travel Options

Our partner clinic has branches in Los Algodones and Playa del Carman- Cancun Riviera. Both of these locations are near the US Border and one can easily cross the US-Mexico border.

Note: The border is open for travel related to essential services including medical reasons.
