Stem cells were recently used on patients with COVID on a trial basis, with encouraging results.
In fact, in a clinical trial that was published in Aging and Disease and run by Robert Chunhua Zhao, from the School of Life Sciences at Shanghai University in China, seven patients who were diagnosed with COVID-19 underwent stem cell therapy, and within only two days of the injection, all seven patients experienced significant alleviation of their symptoms.
10 days following the treatment, three patients were discharged (one of whom was considered a serious case). Not a single patient had a negative side effect from the procedure, and all experienced improved outcomes. Zhao said, “This result is encouraging and exciting.” Per recent data, the study went on to treat 31 patients suffering from COVID-19, every one of whom showed improvements, and the trial is being continued.
The type of stem cells we use at Infinity can give rise to several different types of vital cells, and therefore excellent for repair and restoration of damaged tissue that could cause further problems if untreated. These stem cells are also well-known for their assistance in regulating immune function and their ability to assist in anti-inflammation.
Some conditions we treat with stem cells include:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Coeliac disease
- Cardiovascular disease
Reducing Inflammation with Stem Cell Treatments
By introducing specialized cells that can incite new tissue growth and speed up the repair, stem cell therapy stimulates the body’s natural healing process, reducing inflammation, and often eliminating the need for medicine or surgery.
At Infinity, we use a special type of stem cell called mesenchymal stem cells, or MSCs, that is incredibly potent. That’s because these cells aren’t taken from adults (which usually require invasive procedures), but rather from a donated substance called Wharton’s jelly that is younger, and we believe more potent than adult stem cells.
Wharton’s jelly comes from the umbilical cord and is normally discarded after birth. When healthy, pre-screened mothers choose to donate it instead, neither she nor the baby is affected by the collection process, and the substance contains marvelous potential.
These are the same stem cells that just helped grow an entire human body in mere months. They are proficient at stimulating the growth of specific types of cells that are needed by those suffering from inflammation to repair damaged tissue and heal the body from within.
We are all born with a certain number of these stem cells. However, they decrease in number as we age. Injecting a concentration of young, healthy, and functional stem cells can have impressive results. They are also immuno-privileged, meaning the immune system won’t attack them, so there is virtually no risk associated with this procedure.
We treat patients suffering from all types of autoimmune diseases and inflammatory conditions, such as:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- And more
