Autologous Stem Cell Treatments

Autologous Stem Cells can be taken from an individual, cultured (or stored), and, possibly, genetically manipulated before being transferred back into the original donor.

An autologous stem cell transplant is one in which the patient receives stem cells from his own blood.
One advantage of this stem cell treatment procedure is that in an autologous stem cell transplant, the body recognizes the cells and therefore does not reject or attack them.

Autologous Stem Cell Treatments

Your Adult stem cells can be extracted from many areas of your body, including the bone marrow, fat tissue and peripheral blood.

Once the cells have been harvested, they are sent to the lab where they are purified and assessed for quality before being reintroduced back in to the patient.

Since the stem cells come from the patient there is no possibility of rejection.
Stem Cell Institute advocates the use of autologous (your own) stem cells as they have no ethical or moral issues and pose no risk of rejection.

Stem cells isolated from the bone marrow or fat tissue have the ability to become different cell types (i.e. nerve cells, liver cells, heart cells, muscle, and cartilage cells (as well as others).

Studies have also shown that these cells are capable of homing in to and repairing damaged tissue.
