Stem Cell Therapy for Liver Cirrhosis
Chronic Liver Disease is a major concern for the entire country as it ranks as the fifth largest killer in the world. When the liver sustains serious damage, it loses the ability to repair itself and begins to function less and less effectively until it reaches the point that it no longer works, which is a life-threatening condition. An effective liver failure therapy was pursued for decades before the discovery of stem cells offered the possibility of effective liver stem cell therapy. Until the advent of Advanced Liver Stem Cell Therapy, the only therapy option for liver disease was a full organ transplant. Our adipose (Fat)-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapies for liver conditions are an innovative therapy practiced in the India that is safe and effective.
We want to see patients with liver disease have a better quality of life and even be able to reverse the damage done. Liver stem cell therapy is one of our latest and most exciting therapies, joining those available at our clinic like stem cell therapy for Neurological or Spinal Cord Conditions.
The liver is essential for life and its health is critical for other body functions.
The liver is a multi-functional organ that plays a role in digestion, blood sugar control, blood clotting factors for healing, making amino acids, increasing red blood cell growth, fat and cholesterol transport, and the removal of waste, especially toxic exposures and the metabolization of medications into their active ingredients. Much research has been done on this vital organ, and we now understand how Liver Stem Cell Therapy can positively impact liver health and function.
What Causes Liver Disease?
A number of things can contribute to Liver Disease. Here are some of the most commonly seen diagnoses in our offices:
The devastating autoimmune/hereditary condition that weakens the liver.
Alcoholic Liver Diseases due to the deterioration of liver tissue from alcohol overdose.
Fatty Liver Disease which puts excess strain on the liver and can lead to Cirrhosis.
Cirrhosis: formation of fibrous tissue that replaces liver cells, causing liver failure.
Primary Liver Cancer that chokes the liver and kills healthy liver tissue and cells.
Budd-Chiari Syndrome: the occlusion of the hepatic vein of the liver.
Hereditary diseases that affect blood, oxygen, waste, and nutrient flows.
Transthyretin-related Amyloidosis and the associated death of healthy liver tissue.
Gilbert’s Syndrome and the worsening symptoms associated with the condition.
What Is Cirrhosis Of The Liver?
Cirrhosis is the medical term that is used to describe liver disease that permanently scars the liver, which results in reduced function, pain, waste build up, and ultimately death of the liver. Its potentially lethal consequences make effective cirrhosis of the liver therapy a matter of the utmost importance.
When this condition is present, normal liver cells are replaced by scar tissue that cannot maintain healthy liver function. Acute liver failure may be life-threatening. Stem Cell Therapy for Liver Cirrhosis is a form of liver cirrhosis therapy that addresses damage as well as helps to generate fresh, healthy tissue.
Not too long ago, a diagnosis of liver failure was a death sentence, as the condition was deemed irreversible. However, new advances in stem cell regeneration have made Liver Stem Cell Therapy, including Stem Cell Therapy for Liver Cirrhosis, a reality.
More than three-quarters of the liver is made up of hepatocyte liver cells, which are special in that their average lifespan is only 150 days. What this means is that the liver is constantly renewing and growing new cells to replace weak and dying cells. It is the only organ in the body that can easily replace damaged cells. But when too many cells are damaged or die off too soon, the liver cannot keep up and it begins to fail into Liver Disease. Helping the organ to grow new cells is one of the functions of Liver Stem Cell Therapy.
The liver is a regenerative organ. But it is limited in this ability and can only maintain the regenerative pace when there are enough energy, healthy cells, blood, oxygen, and proper nutrients available. Liver Disease can quickly get out of control and can progress to Cirrhosis and Liver Failure very rapidly. Liver Stem Cell Therapy is designed to help reverse this damage and speed the process of cell regeneration.
Natural Liver Stem Cell Therapy Options
Although the liver can heal itself, there is a point of no return, and there are not enough signs to indicate there is a problem until it is too late. Prior to Liver Stem Cell Therapy, once the line was crossed between Chronic Liver Disease and the final stage of liver failure, there were few options. Transplantation was the only effective therapy option for liver failure.
But it, too, is not without its share of risks and drawbacks. Rejection of the donor organ, infections, and surgery complications are at the top of the list. It is estimated that for every donor organ, there are 30 patients on a waiting list, and many people die from end-stage Liver Disease waiting for a donor organ. But the risks associated with surgery and liver transplant are not an issue with Liver Stem Cell Therapy.
This is why there has been such a fervent interest in liver failure therapy using stem cells here at NSI Stem Cell Centers.
How Can Liver Stem Cell Therapy Help Liver Disease?
Going back to as far as the year 2000, researchers have been conducting studies that showed that hepatocyte cells could grow on non-liver cell sources. This means there do not have to be associated liver cells to stimulate the liver cells to continue multiplying. This phenomenon is called Trans differentiation and is integral to Liver Stem Cell Therapy. Our adipose (Fat)-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cell therapies for liver conditions are an innovative therapy practiced in the India that is safe and effective.
Today, stem cells that are taken from the patient’s own fatty deposits are the only stem cells that have successfully been used in addressing liver disease. The major advantage that comes from such stem cells is that they do indeed come from the patient, so rejection is not an issue and there is a much higher success rate and a much-improved growth of new liver cells seen for the patient.
The stem cells are harvested and then transplanted into the damaged liver, where they Trans differentiate into hepatocyte cells. The stem cells also become cells that help with blood and oxygen delivery and waste removal, so the liver can regenerate faster.
