RISK FACTORS FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS AND TREATMENT

If you’re in your late 40 years or older, overweight, Young sportsman with any knee injury, or had knee operation in the past, or your parents or siblings had Osteoarthritis or you’re experiencing the below symptoms, it is time you look for a treatment before the condition named as Osteoarthritis makes you stall.

  1. Vigorous pain, particularly when you move the knee or at the end of the day.
  2. Stiffness in the joints, especially after long rest which might ease out as you get moving or after few minutes.
  3. A crunching, grinding sensation as you move your joint.

  5. Knee Joints is becoming less stable and Muscle weakness around the joint.
  6. You are not able to move your knees as freely as before.
  7. Your knees becoming bent and bowed.
  8. Change in Pain severity during damp weather and low pressure with stiffness worsening.

Osteoarthritis is a progressive condition of the joints caused by gradual loss of articular cartilage. This painful joint condition affects more than eight million people and currently there is no effective drug therapy or treatment to prevent it or slow down the progression of the condition. The Osteochondral defects in articular cartilage and its management either due to trauma or degenerative conditions remains to be a significant challenge for orthopedic surgeons around the globe.

Mesenchymal stem cells have been indicated as the possible answer to number of clinical conditions including OA. Several clinical trials are already in progress to study the effectiveness of Mesenchymal stem cells in cartilage regeneration and in treating early OA of the knee. Mesenchymal Stem cells have been proven to have anti inflammatory and regenerative capacities, stimulate blood vessel formation, tissue repair and also aids in the engraftment process.

We at Unistem Biosciences offer a comprehensive and innovative scientific therapy for people suffering from Osteoarthritis/ Sports Injury, Knee Joint Pain. The benefits of our scientific therapy includes: Relief from pain, Improvement in quality of life, prevention from Knee/ Hip replacement.

Our treatment regime includes both Mesenchymal stem cells and platelet rich plasma (PRP). The mechanism is simple with stem cells acting as the seeds in the lawn and PRP acting as the fertilizer that helps the seeds and lawn to grow. Platelet rich plasma is considered to be a rich source of growth factors which helps in providing cells signals, and assists the stem cells to flourish and develop into new joints, ligaments, tendons. It is proven that PRP not only assists the stem cells but on their own can also regenerate and stimulates the circulating stem cells to the area of injury.

On the other hand, Mesenchymal stem cells have been identified as a potential sources of cells for cartilage repair due to their ability in Immuno modulation, self –renew and undergo Mutli lineage differentiation into chondrocytes, adipocytes and Oestocytes.

Since introducing this treatment regime, patients ranging from celebrities, key government officials, athletes to those who have suffered for decades with chronic pain have been successfully treated. We’re glad to state that most of our Mesenchymal stem cells and PRP treatments are successful. The treatment reduced the pain drastically and no risk of bruising was noted. We have seen no adverse events associated with the procedure and the treatment is very safe and it can be repeated in the joints to obtain optimal results as the disease is a progressive.

If you want to avoid knee replacement surgery and want to improve your quality of life and get relief from pain, swelling, Please call us for an appointment and free medical consultation.

Stem cell therapy for patients with chronic liver disease

Liver Cirrhosis is a gradually progressing disorder in which comprise loss of liver cells and irreversible scarring of the liver. when normal cells are replaced by scar tissue it blocks the regular flow of blood through the liver. As cirrhosis becomes worse, the liver will have limited healthy tissue.

Signs and symptoms of liver cirrhosis

  • Excessive alcohol consumption- The liver breaks down alcohol into carbon dioxide and water, causing fatty liver.
  • Genetic diseases- Some genetic conditions like Hemochromatosis, Wilson’s disease.
  • Chronic Viral Hepatitis- hepatitis B and D, can also cause cirrhosis.

liver cirrhosis treatment through stem cells

The encouraging advances in stem cell research have paved the way towards the treatment of the end-stage of chronic liver disease. Stem cell therapy has been found best treatment for liver disease.
