Immunotherapy broadly refers to a variety of techniques used to strengthen the human immune system to fight diseases.
It uses natural cells produced in the body or cultivated in the laboratory to increase the efficacy of your immune system, detecting and destroying cancer cells selectively, whereas conventional treatments using drugs and radiation can kill both healthy and cancer cells.
Cellular Therapy: Natural Killer (NK) Cell & Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC)
A complex yet natural process that is influenced by environmental factors, genetics, and routine wear and tear on the body eventually takes its toll in a variety of ways.
Overtime, the cells of the body age as we do, resulting in their inability to replicate, damage, and die. The loss of efficient cell replication is what causes our bodies to age.
Stem Cells (MSC)
Regenerative & Reparative
The frontliners of the innate immunity, which play the powerful defences in our body.
NK cells recognise and attack cells that are harmful and abnormal in our body. For example, mutated cells, cancer cells, infected cells, aged cells, foreign cells, etc.
NK cells identify those abnormal cells and aid in the killing, elimination, and curing of microbial infections and viral infections.
Aging cells can contribute to disease. Thus, if cell aging can be prevented, slowed down, or even reversed, many diseases could be better managed. Stem cells may have the ability to slow this process down & combat certain age-related conditions.
Stem cell rejuvenation is a type of therapy used to combat the effects of the natural aging process. A large amount of youthful stem cells can be injected into the patient via IV. These are intended to replace one’s existing “old” cells, thus allow to body to work more efficiently by reducing inflammation, modulating the immune system and promoting tissue repair and regeneration.
The Healing Power of Stem Cells
Stem cells are the body’s raw materials — cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are created. Mesenchymal stem cells are adult stem cells that have self-renewal, immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, signaling, and differentiation properties.
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), self renewal capacity is characterized by their ability to divide and develop into multiple specialized cell types present in a specific tissue or organ.
It can be sourced from a variety of tissue including adipose tissue (fat), bone marrow, umbilical cord tissue, blood, liver, dental pulp, and skin.
MSCs are widely used in the treatment of various diseases due to their self-renewable, differentiation, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory properties. In-vitro (performed in a laboratory setting) and in-vivo (taking place in a living organism) studies have supported the understanding mechanisms, safety, and efficacy of MSC therapy in clinical applications.
