This is the recent report of the Safety profile of patients (n-870) who underwent autologous stem cell transplantation at the Xcell-Center.
Autologouy Bone Marrow derived-Stem cells have been utilized to treat conditions like stroke and spinal cord injury and many other medical disorders. Although the functional recovery after stem cell therapy is satisfactory, the exact underlying mechanisms are still to be investigated.
Many questions need to be answered, like:
How do these cells integrate into the host tissue??
If they do integrate, are they able to attain the physiological functions for normal programming of those cells, tissue or organ???
Factors responsible for the survival and migration of these stem cells after delivered through lumbar puncture???
Standardisation of cell number, route of administration, pathogen-free cell lysate, how often can you administer them, cost-effectiveness......these and many many more parameters need to be considered.
Xcell Center is one such center which has attained the license to provide SC therapy in various medical disorders. Plans for clinical trials in Stroke and Spinal Cord Injury are underway.
