TREATMENT WITH STEM CELLS AND EXOSOMES IN MEXICALI BAJA CALIFORNIA
By: Dr. Elton Gómez, Expert in Stem-Cells
A light of attraction, for biotech medical tourism is stem cell therapy, also called stem cells. This modern and promising therapy has been very successful in treating painful joints and problems such as pulmonary fibrosis, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, bell paralysis, embolism rehabilitation or cerebral infarction, some forms of arthritis and many other diseases.
Stem cells are a type of cell that divides as many times as necessary and serves to produce and renew all the tissues of the body. They can be all tops if they generate all the pluripotent tissues that can give to several types of cells, and unipotent if they produce a single type of tissue. For the purposes of treatment, totipotential or pruripotent cells, which are called mesenchymal stem cells, are used as masters, which guide all other types to reproduce and improve.
Stem cells can be extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow (autologous) or can be produced from a prestigious (heterologous) laboratory, when these cells are produced in the laboratory, they must have the quality of a drug, has to have a large amount of biosecurity requirements, so that these cells are perfect and that the patient has no problems, the cells are considered a biopharmaceutical, only a drug that is produced from the body of the person so there is no rejection, and in this case there is no need to give immunosuppressants, they would be as if the cells are in the body to do good.
The extraction of the fat for culture of cells, is done in a safe way using local anesthesia, through a very simple maneuver, like a miniliposuction.
All cells produce small vesicles called microscopic, gauge exosomes, and mesenchymal stem cells are no exception, the effects of these cells on tissues are mediated and caused by the exosomes they release upon contact with damaged cell tissue, it has been suggested and proposed that the exosomes themselves can be used to treat these types of problems, constituting as one more biopharmaceutical and another alternative treatment to be taken into consideration.
