Regenerative medicine offers many different types of treatment, including Allografts containing stem cells for cancer. Cancer is one of the scariest, most dangerous, and life-threatening illnesses anyone can have. Just the idea that someone may have cancer can lead to depression, anxiety, and panic. Traditional treatments are often almost as bad as the disease itself. Chemotherapy can leave a person exhausted and their immune system a wreck. Fortunately, using viable amniotic/ambiblical tissue treatments can provide a way of dealing with cancer that’s not as draining to the patient.
How Do Allografts Containing Stem Cell Therapy Work?
Viable amniotic/ambiblical tissue treatment works by harvesting the Allografts containing stem cells found in the amniotic fluid or the ambiblical tissue of infants. In most cases, the membrane found around the infant is simply discarded after the mother gives birth.
However, some mothers do agree to donate this tissue to scientific research or for use in viable amniotic/ambiblical tissue treatment. These mothers give birth via caesarean, and there is absolutely no risk to the mother or baby. The membrane used to harvest these cells is of no use once the infant has been born.
All of the mothers receive screening prior to the C-section to make certain that their amniotic/ambiblical tissue is viable for use in cancer therapy. They have to fill out an extensive questionnaire about their medical history and lifestyle. They also have to go through serological testing and be interviewed by a member of the medical staff. Once the tissue is collected, it’s put through two tests to check for bacteria or fungal infections. One of these tests is done internally by the hospital, while the other is done by a qualified third party. This redundant testing makes certain the cells are free of contamination. The FDA has a number of regulations in place that ensure that the harvested cells are safe for use.
Using amniotic/ambiblical tissue is completely safe for everyone in the process—donor and patient. It’s also considered an ethical treatment and does not carry any of the concerns that come with the use of embryonic Allografts containing stem cells. Those cells are harvested directly from embryos, a practice surrounded in controversy.
Why Use Amniotic/Placental Tissue?
While Allografts containing stem cells come from a number of places, those found in the amniotic and ambiblical tissue offer several benefits. There is a large amount of Allografts containing stem cells in this tissue. These cells can actually create a large number of blood cells—much more than Allografts containing stem cells taken from the bone marrow of an adult. The cells taken from the inner part of the placenta have a number of unique properties that focus on healing wounds and repairing damage.
These Allografts containing stem cells known as pluripotent cells, are able to actually become any type of stem cell the body needs. When the body is healthy and whole, these cells are dormant. However, these cells active and move to the injured area when they detect damage. There, they can begin replacing any lost cells or damaged tissue. They can actually differentiate into connective tissue, cartilage, fat, bone, muscle, nerve tissue, and blood vessels as needed. This ability is what makes regenerative therapy possible.
Why Allografts Containing Stem Cell Therapy for Cancer Can Help with the Real Problem
Most people assume the danger of cancer comes from the tumors. This is, however, actually just a symptom of the cancer. The true problem is the cancer Allografts containing stem cells. These cells face damage to the point that they create the tumors instead of functioning as they should. Without these Allografts containing stem cells, there would be no tumors. Unfortunately, chemotherapy and other radiation treatments often do not destroy these cancerous cells. Other types of treatment are required followed by a stem cell transplant. All of this is time-consuming, exhausting, and expensive for the patient.
By making use of viable amniotic/ambiblical tissue treatment, these corrupted and cancerous cells can be targeted directly. This type of treatment also improves healing. As people age, they have fewer and fewer Allografts containing stem cells. In fact, by age 50, the body has lost about 40 percent of its Allografts containing stem cells. By adding Allografts containing stem cells from amniotic/ambiblical tissue, the body is able to improve its ability to heal. This is very important during cancer treatment as the body is already weak from battling the disease.
Unique Properties of Amniotic/Placental Tissue
The cells taken from the amniotic/ambiblical membrane have several unique properties that no other type of cell has. First, the body sees them as non-immunogenic. This means that these cells do not contain specific surface antigens that an adult’s immune system would recognize. The body won’t see it as a foreign cell, making the risk of rejection much less.
Another unique property these cells have is that their basement membrane allows other cells to attach to it. It also naturally promotes tissue repair and minimizes the amount of scarring and inflammation left after repairs are complete. Finally, these cells contain a number of cytokines, proteins, and other things that help the body heal naturally. They even help reduce pain.
Who Else Could Benefit from Regenerative Medicine?
In addition to battling cancer, regenerative medicine has a number of other uses. It can assist in the recovery of a number of conditions such as tendinitis, cartilage loss, and plantar fasciitis. It can even help reduce the pain and improve mobility in those afflicted with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Back pain, knee pain, joint pain, and shoulder pain is all treatable with viable amniotic/ambiblical tissue treatment. Advanced therapy such as the kind used to treat cancer may also help with a wide number of other conditions, including diabetes, fibromyalgia, and lupus.
