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.
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.
The mesenchymal cells are known to boost human immunity.
With the 7-patient study, researchers are able to solidify the following inference:
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 International Journal of Biomedical Sciences

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

“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.
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.
Due to these chemicals, lungs are inflamed and these experience an excessive fluid build-upThe Hindu

“In the nose and upper regions of the…prevent their ingress…”

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.
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.
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. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention

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