Transplant Technology with Placenta

The advent of science and technology has brought to fruition the goodness of placenta to be used for transplantation. For the past decade, scientists have discovered placenta has been a perfect source to help harvest, restore, regenerate and heal wounds and torn tissues.

Diabetes has caused foot ulcers and chronic wounds and in severe cases, amputations. To address this problem, medical specialists are turning to wound dressings made from human amniotic membrane, a tissue found in human placenta.

Through this innovative way to treat wounds, medical specialists are able to give patients an option to heal their wounds when existing treatments can’t.

Apart from diabetes, it has been reported that stem cell technology using placenta can help in treating leukaemia. A small number of high-risk patients who are not cured by standard chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant may help.

Tendon injuries are another physical disability in which placenta can help. These injuries often present a clinical challenge to orthopedic surgeons because injured tendons responds poorly to current treatments without tissue regeneration and the time for rehabilitation is long.

All in all, placenta with its rich nutrients and membrane have been used in transplant technology and has been proven to be successful.

The history of live cell therapy can trace back to the 1930s by Swiss doctor Paul Niehands and involved the harvesting of fresh cells from cow and sheep embryo and injecting them directly (intramascular) into the person’s buttocks.

Live cell therapy from placenta starts with the selection of specific organ cell from animal foetus. So what are stem cells? Stem cells are the body’s raw materials cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated. Under the right conditions in the body stem cells divide to form more cells, called daughter cells.

These daughter cells either become new stem cells called self-renewal or become specialized cells such as differentiation with a more specific function, such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle or bone.
According to a stem cell surgeon, “Stem cells are blank cells in the body that can become any tissue, whether that be knee tissue, bone tissue, cartilage, organ tissue — stem cells can become whatever they are closest and nearest to. So when you inject them into a joint that’s damaged — the body is always healing itself anyway — it can create new tissue where there has been damage.”

In placenta stem cell therapy, the placental blood has life-saving potential because it contains stem cells for the treatment of:

· Immune disorders
· Spinal cord injury
· Blood cancers
· Blood disorders
· Scarring in lungs (idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis)
· Lack of oxygen to the brain at birth (Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy)

In summary, placenta stem cell therapy has been making new breakthrough in medical and skincare treatment.

As a human being, all of us are genetically programmed to live up to the maximum age of 120 years old. Primary aging is caused by the natural death of cells or apoptosis. We fall short of 120 years because of cellular wear and tear and the harmful effects of free radicals including damage of organs. Free radicals are atom or molecule which are unpaired electron and unstable and reactive. Unpaired electrons cause secondary aging. Stress and exposure to UV rays can lead to free radicals attacking the cells. Therefore, we need to restore, replenish and have balanced cells in our body.

Placenta offers anti-aging benefits through its 3-step live cell therapy – Protect, Repair and Regenerate:

Protect: Placenta protects the existing cells
Repair: It helps repair damaged cells
Regenerate: It promotes and stimulates all cell regeneration process

The basic idea of live cell therapy is cell repairs one another. It is aimed at stimulating the growth and function of existing tissue, using the theory that live cells are instrumental in ‘waking-up’ dormant cells within the body and creating new synapses and connective tissue.

The good thing about placenta is it has rich growth factor which responsible for cell growth and indispensable for cell division and differentiation.

We will share with you on what kind of placenta is best to be consumed for live cell therapy as well as the process and history of live cell therapy in our next series.
