For almost twenty years, the specialists of the Unique Cell Treatment Clinic have been developing and applying effective methods of treatment of liver diseases and their complications.
The liver is one of the most important human organs that performs a variety of functions. The main function of the liver is neutralization and excretion of toxic substances coming from the external environment (various allergens, toxins, alcohol, drugs) or formed in the body due to metabolism (acetone, ammonia, ethanol and others). The liver is involved in the metabolism, digestion, regulation of carbohydrate metabolism, it is a storage of microelements, vitamins and glycogen, the liver also synthesizes blood proteins involved in blood clotting and transportation of various vitamins and hormones throughout the body.
Developed by Professor Smikodub and carried out in the Unique Cell Treatment Clinic stem cell therapy for liver diseases is pathogenic, it effectively treats pathological changes in the body, emerging due to negative impact of viruses, toxins, alcohol, etc. Cell therapy is applied in combination with the newest methods of etiotropic therapy affecting the reason of the disease. Fetal stem cells come into the zone of hepatocytes death, form new pools (groups) of cells capable to settle down and function for a long time, thereby replacing the affected liver cells by healthy ones. At that occurs regeneration of hepatic tissue, leading to the restoration of its functions. During the treatment by transplantation method, several millions of fetal stem cells which passed primary differentiation are administered into a human’s body; these cells turn into hepatocytes, restoring the liver function. Fetal stem cells also produce biologically active substances that stimulate the division of their own stem cells and thereby renew the cellular structure of the sick organ. Stem cells normalize and stimulate functioning of the immune system and all internal organs – the patient receives tremendous energy to cope with the disease. Due to biologically active substances, during the first hours and days after transplantation patients note improving of emotional state, reducing of depression, improving of memory and thinking, normalizing of sleeping. In result of stem cell therapy significant improvement of blood values characterizing the liver function (bilirubin, ALT, AST, GGT, ALP, total protein, platelets) is seen, the risk of developing of cirrhosis complications such as portal hypertension or bleeding is reduced. Of course, the success of treatment of viral hepatitis and liver cirrhosis depends on the type of virus (in case of chronic hepatitis C – also its genotype), duration of the disease, amount of virus and transaminase levels (ALT and AST) in blood.
