A stem cell is a cell that can divide for indefinite periods, throughout the life of the organism. Under the right conditions or having received the right signals stem cells have the potential to develop into mature cells that have characteristic shapes and specialized functions, such as heart cells, skin cells, or nerve cells.
It should be understood that stem cells is a normal mechanism of regeneration and repair in everyday life for all people. This is not an exclusive technology that has only been used in recent years.
This mechanism was laid down by nature as a bioinsurance that operates every day. Without this mechanism, we would not be able to function at all.
With any injury, wounding, common SARS or pneumonia, it is always the stem cells that come to the fore.
After 35 years, every year we lose 2% of this pool of stem cells.
One of the mechanisms of aging is due to the fact that the amount of bioinsurance in the form of stem cells decreases.
Also, if the patient has any chronic disease and stem cells are constantly trying to restore a function, this reserve is not inexhaustible. Over time and the more such negative factors, the faster this pool will be depleted.
Therefore it is possible to replenish this pool externally.
Indications to stem cells therapy:

- Prevention of premature aging
- Arthrosis and postoperative conditions of the joints
- Chronic and acute damages of articular cartilage
- Aseptic necrosis, Koenig’s disease
- Fractures of bones that do not grow together for a long time and false joints
- Chronic tendon inflammation
- Chronic pain around the joints
- Rough postoperative and post-traumatic scars
- Thin and non-receptive endometrium
- Erectile dysfunction
- Male infertility (upon prior approval by a doctor)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
- Cerebral palsy
- Organic brain damages
- Conditions after traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries

- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Macular dystrophy
- Optic nerve dystrophy, optic nerve atrophy
- Pigmentary retinopathy
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Compensated glaucoma
- Stargardt’s macular dystrophy
- As a part of complex treatment of multiple sclerosis
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.
Using MSC, we can achieve positive effects in those clinical cases, which were non-prospective in view of traditional options of therapy.
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.
