The Inside Story of the Stem Cell Industry

Good, today I'm going to talk to you about the many rumors about the industry of stem cells, to split the rumors. In recent years, under the vigorous promotion of our national industry's favorable policies, the stem cell industry has ushered in rapid development. But the stem cell industry is also facing a mixed situation of good and bad.

Firstly, some businesses have launched oral stem cell products, so can stem cells be eaten and have effects?

The answer is this, stem cell therapy or anti-aging, there is a prerequisite for all this, it must be the cells in the human body, these cells the human body must be alive. Eating stem cells is the same as eating any kind of common food, it will only be digested and will not have a health effect. Because the cells must be stored at low temperatures, if stored at room temperature, the cells will die quickly. Stem cells simply cannot resist stomach acid. If they go into the stomach, they will only be digested by the stomach acid and cannot play their role. If there is oral stem cell technology, then I think we do not need to find a hospital when we are sick, so there is no such thing as oral stem cells.

The second one is the wrong propaganda of some businesses. Stem cells are a panacea, a cure for all diseases. Stem cells are a kind of undifferentiated immature cells, with the ability to self-replicate and proliferate, with several differentiation of potentials. Under certain induction conditions, stem cells can differentiate into cells of various organs and tissue types in the human body. Therefore, they are called universal cells by the medical community. However, there are some effects of stem cells that are not very obvious. In the treatment of various diseases such as autoimmune system diseases, neurological diseases, degenerative diseases, and some other tissue repair types, etc., the advantages of stem cells are higher than our traditional means, but they cannot cure all diseases. For example, in some treatments, such as viral diseases, stem cells can only play an adjuvant role. Of course, there are hundreds of diseases that we have discovered that stem cells can address, but there are many more diseases that we can't identify at this point. The stem cells can be used to treat or not, so it is not possible to say uniformly that stem cells can cure all diseases.

The third is that we usually talk about the number of cells used is not the more the better, according to how much to measure the quality of the cells, this statement is not correct. The amount of cells used is determined by the specific needs of each person's body. You have many factors to consider before we use stem cells for example. Your medical condition, weight, etc. The more cells are not the better, and using too many cells can instead increase the burden on your body. In severe cases. It may also lead to blood vessel blockage, so although cells are good, you should not be greedy.

The fourth issue is that we often talk about many salespeople saying that anyone can use stem cells, but this is also not true. There are some contraindications to the use of stem cells. For example, people with severe allergies, or those who have gone into shock, or whose vital signs are not normal. Some women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. People with mental disorders or advanced malignancies, people with cardiopulmonary or hepatic insufficiency, people with coagulation disorders, etc. It has a series of contraindications. Not all people with these contraindications can use stem cells. Therefore, before using stem cells, we must do a comprehensive evaluation to determine which type of people can use them and which type of people cannot use them.

The fifth question is, a lot of businesses promote this way, saying that embryonic stem cells are the best. Is that true? Let me tell you. Embryonic stem cells are a kind of stem cell that exists in the early stage of embryonic development. There are only adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cells can differentiate into all types of human cells, so in a way, embryonic stem cells are very powerful. However, embryonic stem cells are highly undifferentiated cells, and their spontaneous differentiation process in vivo is uncontrollable and highly susceptible to tumorigenesis. Therefore, embryonic stem cells cannot be directly imported into the human body. Therefore, at present, we use more adult stem cells in clinical practice, such as umbilical cord MSCs, bone marrow MSCs, and others. At present, there are tens of thousands of clinical cases in China and abroad to prove the safety and efficacy of adult stem cells, and they have been widely used in many fields such as disease improvement, beauty, aesthetics, and anti-aging.

The sixth stem cell can cure diabetes, so the word "cure" is very certain in the first place. At present, there is no 100% from the medical point of view. No one has given a definite answer that it can or cannot. It is irresponsible from the medical point of view. Because many data show that our stem cells do have a very good effect on diabetes, but of course, it is not a complete cure. Clinically, it is true that more than 98% of diabetic patients have achieved control of their blood sugar using stem cell input. Some of them have even severely reduced or stopped their oral medication or insulin, long-term or short-term. But you are incorrect to say that this is a cure. I should say that the effect is much higher than the traditional treatment and it is expected to bring new hope to diabetic patients.
