Why Cell Therapy ?

Stem Cells have two essential characteristics; one, it has the power to reproduce and regenerate itself, which means, it can produce similar cells that have the same properties as its own and can also change itself to other types of cells. To explain it more clearly, when Stem Cells divide, they can produce cells like themselves, or they can produce other cells from a different type.

For example, skin stem cells can make more skin stem cells, and at the same, time they have the ability to procure difference cells in the skin that have specialised functions, like making melanin pigments. Not all cells can be considered stem cells, but almost all tissues in the body have stem cells, for example, the bone marrow has Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs).

Stem Cells have a wide range of capabilities to treat a range of diseases, like, inflammations and other health conditions. Their ability to use Hematopoietic Stem Cells in the treatment of blood diseases is well recognized, which has been hugely successful in treating leukemia that has saved the lives of thousands of children.

It has been more than 50 years that brain and bone stem cells are used for blood diseases, and bone marrow transplants are being performed for various purposes. In addition, Stem Cells are used in tissue transplants to treat diseases or injuries in the bone, skin and on the surface of the eye. Importantly, clinical trials are using Stem Cells in research in order to provide and shed light on new solutions in medical science.

Stem cells are regarded as the mother of all cells that are capable of changing into any cells in the body. These cells have the ability to self-regulate and differentiate into a variety of cells, including blood, heart, nerve, and cartilage. More importantly, it has been shown that stem cells are effective in repairing and regenerating various tissues in the body when an injury occurs. These cells can be transplanted into damaged tissues where most of their cells have been destroyed. Also, stem cells can replace cells that have been injured and repair any defects in the tissue.

For example, one of the therapeutic applications of stem cells is in the treatment and improvement of the function of the immune and blood system or renew the blood system after treatment in various type of cancers by bone marrow transplant. Other treatment application can be used in bone, skin, eye, and tissue injuries that are treated by tissue grafting. Also, the treatment process depends on the stem cells in the transplanted tissue.

These procedures are reviewed explicitly by the Medical Association in terms of safety and effectiveness. Stem cells are also competent in rebuilding and repairing various tissues in the body upon various types of injuries. Interestingly, they can be transplanted into damaged tissue where most of their cells have been destroyed and replace injured tissues. Today’s medical system is mostly based on drug therapies. Drugs generally regulate intracellular reactions by binding to the cell surface or applying an enzymatic effect. Although medications can often stimulate the immune system, they rarely have the ability to restore tissues or body system to the previous state.

The emergence of new diseases that neither respond to conventional treatments nor there are any treatments available prompted researchers through relying on medical advances to try to provide more effective treatments based on stem cells for incurable diseases. For this reason, a new branch of medical science “reconstructive medicine” has been created to find new treatments.

Clinical trials are a process in which knowledge is transformed into action to reduce pain and improve patients’ recovery. Turning knowledge into safe and effective treatments is a long and multi-step process. During this process, researchers may discover a new achievement that shows that it has been tested in a laboratory, but it is not effective in humans. They may also discover a treatment that effectively targets the symptoms of the disease or injury in humans.

This process, in which knowledge is transformed into action, is time-consuming but is designed to reduce the patient’s pain and increase the chances of survival. Researchers in the field of stem cell therapy are the main force behind the latest development that have shown the weak areas relating to experimental therapies. Due to the numerous clinical trials that are being conducted around the world in order to improve treatment methods, it will be possible to perform safe and effective treatments for most diseases and injuries in the future.

Today, due to the unique ability of stem cells, they are one of the most exciting topics in biology and medical sciences. Furthermore, research in this area has also increased our knowledge of how an organ grows from a single cell, and more importantly, has helped to understand the mechanism by which healthy cells replace damaged cells.

 Reconstructive medicine is a branch of medicine that aims to repair, reconstruct, or replace cells, tissues, or organs that have been damaged or lost. This branch of modern medical science comprises of various departments, including cell and gene therapy, tissue engineering, and immune cell therapy. Cell therapy has provided new hopes for repairing damaged tissues. Today, by conducting cell research and clinical trials in cell therapy, increasing the understanding of the human body and finding effective and efficient ways to treat new diseases, scientists across the world are helping many people in different areas. One of the most useful advances in medical science is the use of stem cells in the treatment of patients, especially those with incurable diseases.

The emergence of new diseases that neither respond to common treatments nor are any treatment available prompted researchers, through relying on medical advances, to try to provide more effective treatments based on stem cells for incurable diseases. A method of treatment that has presented a new perspective on medical science. Therefore, the cell therapy products of Celltech Pharmed-Stem Cell Company have been able to provide new hopes for the repair of damaged tissues.

Cell therapy is the transplantation of a living cell from another person or healthy person with the goal of regenerating body tissue. Cells are powerful plants that can exert therapeutic effects through a variety of methods. Furthermore, cells can replace damaged cells and tissue at the site of injury, secrete growth stimulants and in some cases, change into other cells. This coordination and adaptability make cell therapy a powerful treatment alternative which provides a high chance of treating irreversible diseases. Cell transplantation and cell therapy, in combination with drugs, will be the future of human health.

In cell therapy, after the separation of healthy cells from the cell source which can be bone marrow tissue, fat, heart, skin and other tissues and depending on the patient’s needs through culture method in the laboratory and even without culture, stem cells will be injected into the affected areas to repair and regenerate the destroyed cells. Therefore, cell therapy is a kindled hope for a cure of many diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, stroke, Huntington’s disease, spinal cord injuries and many other illnesses.

Celltech Pharmed-Stem Cell Company started its work in 2013 with the partnership of Imam Khomeini’s Executive Headquarters and Royan Research Institute. This futuristic partnership resulted in the development and the flourishing of stem therapy in the country. Moreover, the company’s goal is to promote global access to the highest quality in the field of cell therapy, reduce pain and ultimately provide a better quality of life for patients. While cell therapy has given rise to new hopes for the treatment of incurable diseases, Celltech Pharmed-Stem Cell Company has endeavored, based on clinical and cellular research, to develop and promote cell therapy and more crucially to run mass production and take a step forward in the industrial phase.
