Scientists and doctors of Institute of Cell Therapy have developed a program to stabilize the immune system and restore patients who suffered from COVID-19. We were relying on our own half-century experience of using mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of patients with various pathology and world studies in the field of stem cells (MSCs) effects on the fight against coronavirus infection and its complications. To date, 15 clinical trials have proven the effectiveness of this method, 50 – are to be successfully completed.
The effect of mesenchymal stem cells administration in COVID-19 treatment
• increase of antiviral protection due to the properties of MSCs and an increase of the number of lymphocytes
• reduction in the general inflammatory process in the body by lowering C-reactive protein, TNF-a
• increase in the level of anti-inflammatory protein IL-10
Diabetes mellitus type 1 (insulin-dependent diabetes) is a chronic disease when the pancreas produces insufficient amount of insulin or does not produce it at all
Modern medication cannot cure diabetes type 1. Symptomatic treatment is the life-long insulin injection and the rejection of the usual lifestyle. This approach helps the patients to maintain their livelihoods, but inevitably leads to the disease complications.
The unique treating technique of type 1 diabetes mellitus with stem cells at the Institute of Cell Therapy combined with insulin therapy, nutrition and lifestyle correction will significantly reduce the disease symptoms, prevent the breakdown of pancreatic β-cells and avoid serious complications.
What improvements can you see after complex treatment of type 1 diabetes at the Institute of Cell Therapy?
• reduction of the injected insulin dose
• increase of insulin therapy efficiency
• elimination of diabetic ketoacidosis
• normalization of metabolism of proteins, fats, carbohydrates
• improvement of functional activity of liver and kidneys, cardiovascular, nervous and immune systems
• prevention of damage of small vessels and peripheral nerves that leads to disruption of all vital organs
Diabetes mellitus of 2nd type (insulin-independent diabetes) is a chronic disease that develops as a result of the violation of the interaction of insulin (pancreatic hormone) with body cells and tissues.
Treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus at the Institute of Cell Therapy
The unique method of treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus using stem cell transplantation has been used for more than 15 years at the Institute of Cell Therapy.
The stem cell treatment method leads to better control of diabetes, namely:
• restores sensitivity of peripheral tissues to insulin (reduction of insulin resistance)
• helps to normalize glucose level in blood
• reduces endogenous glucose synthesis in the liver
• normalizes lipid metabolism
• facilitates to microcirculation improvement in all organs
• protects the walls of blood vessels
Preventive medicine and techniques that prevent the aging and withering of the body’s regenerative capacities are becoming increasingly popular in the world.
Now one of the most effective anti-age therapies is the use of stem cells.
The stem cells injection is indicated both to young people for prevention of the age-associated diseases, and to more mature people for rejuvenation, intensification of regenerating processes and correction of acquired pathology.
Institute of Cell Therapy clinic has a unique integrated approach to preserve youth and health.
The basis of Anti-age programme is injection of stem cells and placenta extract injections. The programme also includes a complete diagnosis of the patient, medical procedures of organism purification and its saturation with macro- and micronutrients.
Stem cells injection:
starts regeneration process of all tissues and organs
improves the structure of the blood vessels walls and heart
optimizes work of the neuroendocrine and immune systems
corrects detoxification function of the liver
activates the antitumour factors
normalizes body weight and improves skin condition
increases libido in men and women
Hepatic cirrhosis is one of the most common liver diseases resulting from alcoholism, chronic viral hepatitis B, C and D, intoxication with chemicals, medicines and heavy metals, autoimmune hepatitis, non-alcoholic liver diseases (fatty hepatosis).
Complications of hepatic cirrhosis:
ascites and leg edemas
bleeding from the dilated veins of esophagus and stomach
reduction in the synthesis of blood coagulation factors
decrease in the immunity with the subsequent development of bacterial peritonitis
impaired digestive function of the intestine which leads to general weakness and weight loss
encephalopathy (accumulation of degradation products and toxins in the brain)
increase in the bilirubin level and as a result darkening of the skin covers, sclera and urine
Liver can be regenerated
Numerous clinical studies of the Institute for Cell Therapy confirm 95% efficiency of patients treating with a diagnosis of hepatic cirrhosis using stem cell transplantation. This therapy helps patients to return to a better quality of life, and for some of them to avoid the liver transplant operation.
How to restore the liver structure and function, and to avoid the cirrhosis development?
Stem cell injection helps to achieve:
regeneration of liver cell structure and liver function
normalization of biochemical blood indicators (albumin, bilirubin, ALT, AST, coagulogram)
reduction of the risk of cirrhosis complications occurrence and the severity of their manifestations, if any
metabolism improvement, normalization of patient hormonal and immune status
significant improvement in the quality of life
According to the data of World Health Organization cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the leading cause of death worldwide: no other reason causes as many people’s death every year as this one.
Risk factors of cardiovascular diseases:
age – after 50 years the risk of damage to walls of blood vessels and myocardial hypertrophy increases
male & female – men are more susceptible to CVD
genetic features and predisposition
smoking – nicotine constricts blood vessels, which leads to hypoxia of tissues and cells
unhealthy diet and alcohol
presence of metabolic syndrome
insufficient physical activity
chronic and acute stress
The Institute of Cell Therapy accounts for hundreds of actual positive changes in the lives of patients with diagnoses of hypertension, post-infarction cardiosclerosis, vascular atherosclerosis, cardiomyopathy, and critical lower limb ischemia.
A comprehensive method of heart diseases treatment with intravenous stem cell administration contributes to:

cellular nutrition of the heart muscle, liver, lungs, kidneys and lower limbs
regeneration of the inner walls of blood vessels at the macro- and micro-levels
increase in the ejection fraction of the heart
normalization of heart rhythm
improvement of heart failure symptoms (edema, dyspnea, tachycardia)
improvement of vital activity of all organs and body systems
Treatment of cardiovascular diseases with stem cells naturally restores the tissue of heart and blood vessels, provides metabolism correction and regulation of body weight, contributes to disappearance of edemas and pain, normalizes arterial pressure, healthy sleep and improves the quality of life in general.
Hepatitis B and C viruses cause a liver inflammation and often cause cirrhosis, liver failure, liver cancer and other complications that adversely affect the patient’s condition
For the patients after chemotherapy stimulation of the immune system, reduction of antiviral agents toxicity, restoration of liver functions
For patients whom are contraindicated in antiviral drugs
reduction of viral load, restoration of the liver structure and functions, protection of the vital body functions
For patients with cirrhosis and hepatic failure
regeneration of cell structure and liver function, normalization of biochemical indicators, improvement of metabolism, reduction of bleeding risks, ascites, portal hypertension, a significant improvement in the quality of life
Improvement of the patients well-being with viral hepatitis after a course of treatment at the Institute of Cell Therapy is achieved due to:
immunity increase and reduction of viral load on the organism
formation of antiviral antibodies
