Your body has the natural ability to heal itself with stem cells and their derivatives.
As you get older, the amounts of stem cells you have in your body are greatly reduced and are not as effective. With the advancements in science over the past 20 years, stem cells derived from placenta and umbilical cord has emerged as a key element of Cell Based Therapeutics.
Our Cell based products are derived from the human umbilical cord tissue that captures all the greatest reviving properties of this otherwise discarded tissue. Our brand of Cell based products uses a proprietary method of isolating growth factors, therapeutic cells and stem cells giving our patients the best possible benefits from a Sempiternal source. The cell derived product used in our clinic is produced in compliance with FDA as well as CDSCO cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice) and GTP (Good Tissue Practices) standards, which assures quality and safety in this product.
Human hematopoietic stem cell transplantation is used to treat variety of conditions like genetic disorders that effects immune system, rescue following irradiation as a cancer treatment, autoimmune disorders and chronic infectious diseases.
There are two types of cell-based therapies:
Autologous: Cells extracted from patient and given back to the patient
Allogenic: Cells extracted from a donor and administered to a patient with condition
The use of the above modes of therapy is subjective to the patient condition, age and other conditions. There is no one size fits all approach in cell-based therapies. For e.g., in children suffering from blood related disorders or MLD, autologous cell based therapy would be a tough deal as the children suffering from such immunological disorders would not be able to cope up to the pressure of autologous procedures. Allogenic procedures are the preferred means of option in such cases.
Prasad Hospital is along with Prasad research foundation offers the best cell based therapies for different conditions with the help of a board overseeing it. The team at Prasad Hospital and the foundation are working on developing hematopoietic cell based therapies in the below conditions:
- Hemoglobinopathy (Blood related disorders like sickle cell anemia, thalassemia)
- Diabetic Foot Ulcer
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Juvenile Arthritis
- Lysosomal storage disease(like Metachromatic leukodystrophy(MLD)
