Did you know that the liver is known as the body's metabolic factory?

It plays an essential role in creating important proteins, removing toxins from the blood and also processing nutrients. However, it is also highly vulnerable to damage. If the damage is grave and irreparable the damage can cause liver cirrhosis.

If you are suffering from this degenerative condition, there is some hope! Stem treatment of liver diseases using cells in India is increasing in momentum in addition, Plexus is one of the pioneers in this kind of treatment.

The Liver Cirrhosis

Cirrhosis of the liver is the result of scarring on tissues of the liver. It is the result of ongoing and prolonged damage to the liver. The liver is naturally trying to heal itself by creating scar tissue over the affected areas, as time goes by, the marks can become more extensive and cause problems with normal function of the liver.

The causes of liver cirrhosis are conditions like chronic alcoholism, viral hepatitis as well as the disease of the liver called fatty. As the condition worsens the function of the liver decreases which eventually causes liver failure.

The symptoms of liver cirrhosis

  • Fatigue
  • Jaundice
  • Abdominal pain
  • Swelling in legs, abdomen and ankles
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Weight loss
  • Appetite drop
  • Itching that persists (pruritus)
  • The possibility of bleeding or bruising is very easy.
  • Pale or clay-coloured stool
  • Urine that is dark brown or black

Cognitive impairments (Hepatic Encephalopathy is widely known to be a cause of confusion memory loss, behavioral changes)

Muscle cramps

Spider angiomas (spider-like blood vessels)

Stem Cell Therapy for Liver Cirrhosis in India

Stem cells have the unique capacity to transform into different kinds of cells in the body. This makes them the perfect method of treatment for rejuvenating damaged tissues as well as restoring the function of organs.

The fundamental idea for the stem cell treatment in the treatment of liver cirrhosis is using the regenerative potential of stem cells to regenerate and repair injured liver tissues. Here are some of the key elements that stem cells can provide to treat dialysis in the liver at Plexus:

We use mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).

They are multipotent cells, which have anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties that can aid in reducing inflammation and aid in promoting liver repair.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells MSCs can differentiate/transform into liver-specific cells, such as hepatocytes, hepatic stellate cells, kupffer cells, and liver sinusoidal endothelial cells

They can be used to replace broken or damaged ones

These release factors, which stimulate the process of tissue repair and regeneration.

They can alter the immune system, as well in doing so can reduce inflammation, and help prevent any further damage to the liver.

At Plexus We offer world-class medical facilities as well as access to the top professionals in this field. Patients from all over the globe are coming to our centers in Bangalore as well as Hyderabad as their top treatment center for stem cells to treat liver cancer.

Liver cirrhosis is a chronic condition that is debilitating. But, our personalized stem therapy program can assist in restoring liver function and improve the quality of living.


Does the liver recover by regeneration?

Yes, a healthy liver (one that is free of disease or infection) can regenerate itself naturally.

What is the most efficient method to fix your liver?

Foods high in glutathione like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts and Kale are often referred to as superfoods for liver health. Also drinking plenty of fluids and limiting your alcohol consumption and exercising regularly can aid in repairing your liver more quickly.

What can stem cell therapy be utilized to treat liver diseases?

Stem cells, specifically mesenchymal stem cell, can transform into hepatocytes the hepatic stellate cell as well as kupffer cells and the sinusoidal endothelial cells of the liver. Through this differentiation, stem cells can replace damaged or depleted ones, and aid in dealing with Liver Disease

Which treatment is the most effective for liver disease?

While it is true that liver transplant is the most highly recommended and most commonly used method for treating liver diseases Stem cell therapy offers an non-surgical and exciting new frontier in treatment of the disease.
