Indications to stem cell treatment:
- Erectile dysfunction;
- Male infertility (upon prior approval by a doctor)
Сontraindications to treatment:
- Malignant neoplasms
- Critical disorders of blood coagulation system (platelet count ≤50×109) - Severe heart failure
- Severe pulmonary failure (SpO2 <90%)
- Kidney failure of IV-V degree
- Infectious diseases in the acute phase (hepatitis C, hepatitis B, etc.)
- Unstable hemodynamics, requiring correction with sympathomimetics - Terminal stage of incurable diseases
- Acute stage of injuries or stroke
The therapeutic effect of stem cells is achieved due to their ability to differentiate and transdifferentiate into tissue-specific cells, to fuse with the resident cells, to secrete a wide array of paracrine factors in order to stimulate the survival and functional recovery of the resident cells or to regulate the local microenvironment or immune response.
Lots of studies suggest that injection of MSC promotes differentiation of germ cells and/or stimulates gonadal tissue development.
Using MSC, we can achieve positive effects in those clinical cases, which were non- perspective in view of traditional options of therapy.
The positive effects might be expected: a higher amount of sperms in ejaculate or patients can even start producing sperms in cases with confirmed azoospermia; decrease, or complete elimination of inflammatory changes in ejaculate; increase in the amount of morphologically mature (non-defective) sperms in ejaculate; better sperms motility; increased duration of the relapse-free period in men with inflammation of male reproductive system (compared to traditional therapy); improvement of erectile function.
Positive effects were reported in 41 % of cases during 6-9 months after stem cell therapy.
What does the procedure look like?
Stem cell treatment procedure is non-surgical, is practically painless, and well- tolerated by patients. Possible short-term side effects immediately after cell transplantation are redness at the injection site and a slight increase in body temperature. These effects usually subside in 1 to 2 hours. The method of administration of cellular material is chosen by the doctor individually for each case.
When will I see the results?
Patient response to treatment is dependent on a large variety of biological factors, however is also subject to the behavior and lifestyle of the patient. We advise patients that stem cell therapy normally produces measurable results within 3-6-9 months following treatment. However, we have had many patients record improvements to their quality of life and a lessening of their symptoms within the first few weeks following treatment. Every patient is unique and will respond to treatment differently so it is impossible to guarantee any specific result for an individual, as every person’s body is different and will respond in different ways.
Is it safe?
Stem cell therapy using Mesenchymal Stem Cells is absolutely safe. There are no side effects associated with stem cell therapy. In very rare cases: a slight increase in temperature after the procedure is possible; slight redness at the injection site, - all these effects pass within a few hours.
