Impeccable yet Low-Cost Stem Cell Treatment in India

Stem Cell Treatment

Stem cells are the raw materials of the body, capable of generating other cells with specialized functions and have self-renewal ability to become new stem cells or specialized cells. These specialized cells can differentiate into a specialized adult stem cell to perform more specific functions such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle cells, or bone cells.

Impeccable yet Low-Cost Stem Cell Treatment in India

Stem Cell Treatment Cost in India

Stem Cell Treatment cost in India depends upon:

  • Reputation and expertise of Doctors
  • Hospital Type
  • Stem cell harvesting procedure
  • Treatment procedure
  • Room Category
  • Diagnostic procedure
  • Hospital Stay duration

However, the cost of Stem cell treatment in India as compared to other countries is extremely low and highly affordable.

Stem cells can be harvested and implanted into the organs to regenerate cells to promote repair response in diseased, dysfunctional, or injured tissue.

The two different types of Stem cell therapy include:

  • Analogous stem cell therapy - in which stem cells are obtained from blood or bone marrow of the patient 
  • Allogenic stem cell therapy – in which stem cells are harvested from a donor.

Stem cell treatment is successfully used for treating ailments or disorders such as:

Bone Marrow Disorders:

  • Aplastic Anemia
  • Leukemia
  • Thalassemia
  • Myelodysplasticsyndromes  (MDS)

Degenerative and other Disorders:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Anti-Aging Autism,
  • Parkinson's Disease,
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Cancer Treatment (using Dendritic Cells)
  • Cancer Treatment (using NK Cells)
  • Liver Cirrhosis,
  • Cardiovascular Disorders
  • Chronic Kidney Disorders
  • Liver disease
  • Diabetes
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Hair Loss and Hair Transplant
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Muscular Dystrophy
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Rotator Cuff Tears
  • Retinal Diseases
  • Vitiligo

Stem cells for regeneration and repair of tissues can be obtained from the sources rich in stem cells like:

  • Placenta
  • Umbilical Cord
  • Amniotic Fluid
  • Dental Stem Cells
  • Menstrual Fluid
  • Adipose Tissue
  • Bone Marrow

Stem Cell Treatment Benefits in India

Stem cell treatment in India can be extremely beneficial for patients as it is provided:

  • By highly qualified and experienced specialists
  • In world-class hospital
  • Using most modern stem cell harvesting and plantation techniques

Also, international patients coming for stem cell therapy in India find it convenient to get a medical visa. Above all, patients save a lot of money for their stem cells as compared to other developed countries for a similar procedure.

Types of Stem Cell

There are two major classes of stem cells i.e.

  • Pluripotent - that can become any cell in the adult body. Pluripotent stem cells being used in treatment and research, mainly come from embryos, hence also known as 'Embryonic Stem Cells.'

Pluripotent stem cells can divide into more stem cells or can become any type of cell in the body to regenerate or repair diseased tissue and organs. Using genetic reprogramming, adult cells have successfully been transformed into 'Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells' (iPS).

The stem cells in amniotic fluid and the umbilical cord blood also can change into specialized cells called 'Perinatal stem cells.' 

  • Multipotent - that is restricted to become only one or two specialized cell types of a particular tissue. These stem cells are typically found within their organ and help maintain tissue integrity by replenishing aging or injured cells

Placenta and umbilical cord blood can be new sources of multipotent stem cells with highest differentiating potential and greater plasticity. 

Success Rate of Stem Cell Treatment

The success of stem cell treatment can only be measured in two ways, that means:

  • Increase in Blood count, i.e., number of red cells, white cells and platelets in the blood to safe levels.
  • Cancer is controlled following stem cell treatment for curing diseases like some types of Leukemia, Hodgkin & Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma.
  • In some instances, even remission can be considered as a successful stem cell transplant.
  • Stem cell treatment may help cancer patients to live longer than 5-10 years.
