- Medical researchers believe that stem cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease and alleviate suffering.
- The mission of One Stem Genn is to make stem cell therapy easily available for all classes of society in the most reasonable and ethical manner.
Indore, March 11, 2016- What exactly is a stem cell? Many of us have heard of them, but few of us really understand what they are. We are discussing it, because Stem cells have the potential to revolutionize the way we treat disease.
New and current Regenerative Medicines can use stem cells to create living and functional tissues to regenerate and repair tissue and organs in the body that are damaged due to age, disease and congenital defects. Stem cells have the power to go to these damaged areas and regenerate new cells and tissues by performing a repair and a renewal process, restoring functionality. Regenerative medicine has the potential to provide a cure to failing or impaired tissues.
Stem Cell based Regenerative medicine is an emerging branch of medicine with the goal of restoring organ and/or tissue function for patients with serious injuries or chronic disease in which the bodies own responses are not sufficient enough to restore functional tissue.
Stem cell is a master cell and can grow into any organ we direct it to. Stem cells can be retrieved from one’s own bone marrow, blood or fat cells and can be added with specific media or agents, which direct them to reach the target organ, where, within 8 to 12 weeks, they can start forming newer cells of the respective organ. Hence stem cell therapy is labeled as regenerative therapy.
‘One Stem Genn, a dedicated stem cell research and application/ therapy unit will be launched on 11thMarch 2016 at 2pm at Indore.
Dr. Kawita Bapat , the CEO and Founder of One Stem Genn said that One Stem Genn is a one of its kind unit in MP where they aim to provide most ethical services in hepatic, renal, orthopedic (joint) problems, neurological disorders, diabetes, anti ageing etc in their first phase. Since the stem cells for this therapy will be taken from one’s own bone marrow (autologous), chances of any serious reactions are remote. She also added that they have partnered with the best of technology from Switzerland who have their own patents. With this technology stem cells will be segregated by the latest non-touch digital technique in 30 to 45 minutes.
Dr. Prabhu Mishra, Secretary General, Stem Cell Society (India), Founder President – Anti Ageing Foundation ( All India Society), & Active Member of International society of Cellular Therapy, a partner with One Stem Genn for technological transfer, said that he has been working in this field for more than 10 years and has seen miraculous results in arthritis, sports injury, diabetes, early renal failure and liver failure. He added that soon need for organ transplant and joint replacement surgeries would be minimized. Anti aging therapy is another area of focus of One Stem Genn. They aim to make futuristic advances by research regarding further novel applications of this therapy eg. Infertility, IVF, which is one of their biggest areas of interest.
The stem cell therapy will be, in its simplest form, a half-day procedure. The patient will be given a pre treatment for 2 hours, his bone marrow aspirated and within 30 minutes prepared cells will be injected either intravenously or more specifically into the targeted organ, eg. Intra articular (into the joints), intra thecal (into the space around the spinal cord), etc. Patient will receive one more hour of post procedure care after which they may go back home and resume their day-to-day activities.
