Summary
ProgenCell – Stem Cell Therapies uses adult stem cells that come from the patients themselves to treat countless conditions and diseases. Their clinic is located in Tijuana, Mexico, which borders the United States, and is only a few minutes away from San Diego, CA. Their clinic has received numerous awards from the International Board of Medicine and Surgery and they see patients from all over the world. Their clinic has been certified by the COFEPRIS, which is Mexico’s regulatory health organization and performs the same functions as the FDA in the United States. They have received countless testimonials from very satisfied patients, and if you’re traveling to Mexico from the U.S. to receive treatments, they will provide you with a personal assistant who will translate from Spanish to English, give you medical passes that you can use to cross the border swiftly, transport you to and from the airport and help you find our office and your hotel in Tijuana.

Indeed, ProgenCell offers an alternative stem cell treatment that is safe and effective. ProgenCell is able to use adult stem cells obtained from your own bone marrow and transfer the stem cells to a different part of your body through an IV (similar to blood transfusion). This stem cell therapy treatment can help relieve pain and even cure diseases.

Progenital cells also known as stem cells,  are some specialized cells that can transform to different types of tissues. Stem cells have the capacity to travel from different parts of the body to damaged organs or tissue and differentiate into cells of this tissue to function as such. As a result of this differentiation capacity into other types of tissues, stem cells can be used for medical treatments to repair damaged organs and tissues. They also produce growth factors and other components necessary into the maintenance of the body. Adult stem cells are found in high concentrations in the umbilical cord, blood of newborns, and in some tissues of the human body such as blood, fat, skin, and bone marrow. The bone marrow has a continual production of new cells and the stem cells, therefore has a larger reserve of them. The bone marrow has a continual production of new cells; adult stem cells therefore, have a larger reserve of them.

In addition, this organization has special storage tanks that keep cells preserved at temperatures below zero at -150 degree Celsius. This frozen state permits long periods of storage without losing stem cells characteristics before freezing. These umbilical cord blood stem cells can be cultured in large numbers and be used by the same person. They can also be used by others if they match compatibility. It is worth mentioning that when the cells are processed, some cells are lost in the quantity and some get harmed. So the processing quality is very important to prevent cells lose their ability and get healthy cells.

Furthermore, the most common use of cord blood stem cells are cases of leukemia and lymphomas, but have also been used cases of heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and other conditions. Stem cells obtained from bone marrow, can be used for similar purposes with the advantage of the possibility of multiple collections at different ages of the person as needed. When using stem cells from a different person, healthy donor, the main risks are tissue rejections by the immune system, allergic reactions, fusion compatibility, antibody formation, and the possibility of transmitting diseases. Stem cells are infused by IV, similar to our blood transfusion, and in some cases they are injected intramuscularly or subcutaneously. They must be administered by trained and experienced physicians and knowledge of these types of therapies and treatments must be performed in a clean facility like operating rooms or special care units.

Therefore, ProgenCell takes stem cells from the patient’s own bone marrow to treat various kinds of diseases. The special ProgenCell techniques consist in using, in most cases, complete bone marrow. It is obtained by aspiration that mix with a special solution previously prepared and into physical stimulation in a closed system. With this methodology, the patient receives a large quantity of fresh live active cells with a minimum handling as possible. The immediate application purpose is to avoid handling, freezing, and storage to prevent harming the cells obtaining their original property of stem cells without damaging, aging, and with high viability. Another advantage of using whole bone marrow is that it contains real factors that are not only useful but necessary for duplication and differentiation of stem cells. Removing components from the bone marrow, like red cells, is not strictly necessary when used by IV. This element will be selected by the body and eliminated as the need for it.

In patient’s suffering from chronic degenerative diseases, the damage usually is in the organs or in some places of these organs. This damage may be micro circulation disorders, accumulation of free radicals, oxidative stress, cellular micro environment, production, transportation, and disposal of various items, such as hormones, proteins, and enzymes among others. In some cases, the production of stem cells may be disturbed but the stem cells are not altering their function. These stem cells will always regenerate and repair damaged organs and tissues as it is a natural way of healing the body. Stem cells from a person are completely healthy and have no limitation for use on the same person. There is no evidence showing that using pathology stem cells perpetrate a disease. If this way were real, the risk of using stem cells from tissues of another person would be much greater.  The safest stem cell treatments without a doubt are autologous treatments such as those performed by ProgenCell.

So far, hundreds of procedures have been performed and none of have had any complications with any patient. All patients have had a benefit with results ranging from complete cure to slight improvement. The different responses in patients reside on different medical conditions, different habits, different production of stem cells, and growth factors. They have observed that the main elements influencing results are the quality of the bone marrow, age, chronicity, and severity of the disease, and the patient’s general condition, and their lifestyle. The sources of obtaining bone marrow at ProgenCell is through the iliac crest, hip or tibia bone leg. The procedure is performed in adults with local anesthesia and is well tolerated by patients. Few patients have reported slight discomfort at the aspiration site for a few days after the procedure. In all cases, IV infusion is performed and some cases, they have local injection. For example, under thyroid, lumbar area or retro bulbar to direct the cells to the required tissue to be repaired. ProgenCell offers stem cells therapies with effective results. Many years of research and extensive experience have resulted in substantial improvement of patient’s health with various diseases. ProgenCell uses stem cells from the bone marrow into the same patient for tissue regeneration resulting in medical condition improvement, therefore increasing your quality of life.

Medical Conditions and Procedures

An autoimmune disease causes inflammation in the body’s tissues and organs. Such a condition can be present for more than five years before the patient recognizes any symptoms, and usually, rheumatoid arthritis affects the joints first. Stem cell therapy will help this condition. By injecting stem cells into areas of the body that have been damaged by the condition, the healthy cells will regenerate the old, weakened tissues, and as the new cells divide, their positive effects will increase. The immune system of an individual with systemic lupus will attack the person’s own cells, and usually, the disease primarily affects the heart, the lungs, and the kidneys. Physicians treat the condition by prescribing medications that suppress the activity of the immune system. This condition causes chronic pain in numerous parts of the body, and in addition, patients who have fibromyalgia report that they feel fatigued, have stiff joints, feel numbness, as well as tingling and have trouble swallowing. According to various studies, the causes of fibromyalgia can be neurological, psychological, and environmental, thus medical practitioners usually prescribe medications that increase the patient’s levels of serotonin and gamma-aminobutyric acid to treat the condition. Stem cell therapy will help this condition also. The percentage of the population that has been diagnosed with asthma has doubled between the 1970s and 2013, and a study that was conducted in 2011 indicated that 225 million people worldwide have been diagnosed with asthma.

Asthma is a condition that causes chronic inflammation of the airways. The disease’s symptoms include shortness of breath and wheezing, and in addition to inhalers, researchers have recently developed two drugs that provide long-term relief. Although stem cells won’t cure asthma, they can substantially strengthen the tissues of the airways and reduce the effects of the inflammation.

Diabetes is a condition that is caused by a lack of production of insulin by the pancreas or by cells that are resistant to insulin. The early symptoms include frequent urination and increased levels of thirst and hunger. Furthermore, individuals with diabetes usually experience blurred vision. One of the disease’s complications is diabetic ketoacidosis, which must be treated immediately and can be life-threatening. Other, long-term effects of the condition include rashes on the skin, the weakening of the blood vessels and a feeling of numbness or tingling in the feet. The immune system of a person who has multiple sclerosis sporadically attacks the insulation of the cells that are in the brain and the spinal cord.

Parkinson’s disease are caused by the death of cells in the midbrain. The symptoms of the disease are only evident when a flare-up occurs. A lack of vitamin D, stress, or an infection by the influenza virus can trigger an attack. This is a degenerative disease of the nervous system, and the primary symptoms of  Early signs of the condition include the trembling of the hands and the fingers, the shaking of the legs and particularly slow movements. The condition was officially discovered and classified by James Parkinson in 1817; however, an effective treatment for the disease wasn’t developed until the 1960’s. Injecting healthy stem cells into parts of the body that are affected by the symptoms can exponentially improve the condition of the nerves that the condition has begun to degrade, but the patient must receive injections on a biweekly basis or once per month.

Over time, the tissue in the eyes of an individual with retinitis pigmentosa will degenerate, and usually, the cones that are within the retina begin to deteriorate first. Our professionals will inject stem cells that are already developed and are programmed to become photoreceptor cells. The treatment must be administered once per month. Additionally, several studies have indicated that a daily dosage of 15,000 international units of retinyl palmitate can substantially slow the progression of the disease. The symptoms of acute renal failure are weight loss, increased levels of creatinine in the blood, feeling fatigued and low blood pressure. Long-term kidney failure can cause the patient to have trouble falling asleep, darken the individual’s skin and reduce the person’s appetite.
