Stem cell therapy for heart failure

The last decade has witnessed the publication of a large number of clinical trials primarily using bone marrow-derived stem cells as the injected cell. These “first-generation” clinical trials have advanced our understanding and shown us that (1) cell therapy is safe, (2) cell therapy has been modestly effective, and (3) in humans, bone marrow-derived stem cells do not transdifferentiate into cardiomyocytes or new blood vessels (or at least in sufficient numbers to have any effect).

The primary mechanism of action for cell therapy is now believed to be through paracrine effects that include the release of cytokines, chemokines, and growth factors that inhibit apoptosis and fibrosis, enhance contractility, and activate endogenous regenerative mechanisms through endogenous circulating or site-specific stem cells. The new direction for clinical trials includes the use of stem cells capable of cardiac lineage, such as endogenous cardiac stem cells. Link to study >>>>> HERE

Cellular therapeutics for heart failure: focus on mesenchymal stem cells

Resulting from a various etiologies, the most notable remains ischemia; heart failure (HF) manifests as the common end pathway of many cardiovascular processes and remains among the top causes for hospitalization and a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Current pharmacologic treatment for HF utilizes pharmacologic agents to control symptoms and slow further deterioration; however, on a cellular level, in a patient with progressive disease, fibrosis and cardiac remodeling can continue leading to end-stage heart failure. Cellular therapeutics have risen as the new hope for an improvement in the treatment of HF. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have gained popularity given their propensity of promoting endogenous cellular repair of a myriad of disease processes via paracrine signaling through expression of various cytokines, chemokines, and adhesion molecules resulting in activation of signal transduction pathways. While the exact mechanism remains to be completely elucidated, this remains the primary mechanism identified to date. Recently, MSCs have been incorporated as the central focus in clinical trials investigating the role how MSCs can play in the treatment of HF. In this review, we focus on the characteristics of MSCs that give them a distinct edge as cellular therapeutics and present results of clinical trials investigating MSCs in the setting of ischemic HF.

Review & Testimonials/Case Examples

“I’m 73 yo and have torn meniscus and OA. 3 orthos told me I needed knee replacement. Heard about stem cell and had umbilical stem cells injected then my PRP injected a month later. My knee doesn’t hurt nor buckle any more. It does still get ‘tired’ and a little sore but it’s only been about 6 wks since stem cells. … I still have personal trainers but all exercises are done while I’m seated.”

Introduction About the Topic

Cardiac failure and heart failure are synonyms. It is one of the most important ailments that must be treated by a physician. The name of this condition is usually a little confusing. Cardiac or heart failure does not mean a total cessation of heartbeat. What is really going on is that the heart cannot pump blood as well anymore.

The term “cardiac failure” means simply failure of the heart to pump enough blood to satisfy the needs of the body. It is a physiological state in which blood pumped by the heart (cardiac output) is insufficient to meet the needs of the body and lungs.

Cardiac failure can result from any heart condition that reduces the ability of the heart to pump blood. The cause is usually decreased contractility of the myocardium resulting from a reduced coronary blood flow. Common causes also include high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, valvular heart disease, excess alcohol use, infection, and cardiomyopathy of an unknown cause. External pressure around the heart and vitamin B deficiency also contribute to making the heart a hypo-effective pump.

If a heart suddenly fails, the pumping ability of that heart gets depressed. The chambers of the heart may then respond by stretching to carry more blood to pump through the body. They may become stiffer and thicker. This helps keep blood moving for a while, but in time, the heart muscle walls may get weaker. The kidneys react by causing the body to hold on to water and salt. Fluid may start to build up in the arms, legs, ankles, feet, lungs, or other organs.

Factors that cause heart failure do so by changing either the structure or the functioning of the heart.

There are two main types of heart failure:

 

  • Heart failure due to left ventricular dysfunction
  • Heart failure with normal ejection fraction depending on whether the ability of the left ventricle to contract or relax is affected or not.

Usually, people with heart failure experience difficulties during exercise. This is a yardstick to grade the severity of the disease. It should be noted that there are dissimilarities between heart failure, myocardial infarction or cardiac arrest. While heart failure means an inability of the heart to pump sufficient quantity of blood for the body’s use, myocardial infarction describes a condition in which part of the heart muscle dies, while cardiac arrest is a condition in which blood flow stops altogether. Smoking and a sedentary lifestyle are risk factors for heart failure.

Epidemiology

Heart failure is a common, costly and potentially fatal condition. There are reports that about 40 million people were affected globally in 2015. In developed countries, around 2% of patients have heart failure and in those over the age of 65, this increases to 6 to 10 percent. The risk of death increases about 35 percent a year after diagnosis after which it decreases to below 10 percent each year. This is similar to the risks with a number of types of cancer. In the United Kingdom the disease is the reason for five percent of emergency hospital admissions. Heart failure has been known since ancient times, with the earliest records dating as far back as 1550 BCE.

Symptoms And Diagnosis

Signs and symptoms commonly include shortness of breath, excessive tiredness, and leg swelling due to edema. The shortness of breath is usually worse with exercise, while lying down, and may wake the person at night. A limited ability to exercise is also a common feature. A few diseases share symptoms similar to heart failure. They include obesity, kidney failure, liver problems, and anemia and thyroid disease.

Diagnosis of this condition is based on the history of the symptoms and a physical examination by a doctor. Confirmation is done by echocardiography (ECHO).

 

Current Treatment at Other Clinics

Current treatment involves using medications and at times injection.  These treatments are considered a patch up of the problem without treating the root cause of the problem.  Medications & steroids have many side effects including weight gain & increased blood sugar from steroids, damage to kidneys, heart, stroke & gastric ulcer.  Surgery can be very debilitating with prolong downtime during recovery requiring at times prolonged bed rest & even residing in nursing home for recovery.  It also entails a lot of risk including risk of infection, bleeding, poor surgical outcome to name a few.  Stem cells however, reduce the inflammation and pain that are typical of these conditions. Current ongoing research on the effect of stem cells has shown positive results.

We are different from many other clinics who offer stem cell or PRP.   Other may also not offer option of bone marrow derived stem cell, Adipose derived stem cell & umbilical cord stem cell.  They in effect expose patients to more invasive treatments like drilling bones without offering other easier options.  They also may use xray with unnecessary radiation for injections that can be easily avoided in most cases by using ultrasound.  Furthermore, they may not have proper knowledge of how other modalities can enhance the effects of Stem Cells.  These other modalities are used by us to focus on the whole body and treating different parts of it instead of just treating one out of several diseased structures in the body.

Safe Non Surgical Option

We use a combination of newest cutting edge technology in regenerative medicine to stimulate body’s own repair ability to reverse aging and damage.   We use Stem Cells as part of treatment plan designed by the doctor to treat the body.    These are safe investigational treatments that have shown very promising & safe results in thousands of treatments over the 10-20 years in Europe and USA.   They don’t involve using any medications or drugs.  

 

What Does Stem Cell Therapy Do?


The researchers believe that the therapy works by:

Releasing cytokines into the body to prevent further damage and inflammation.

Preventing inflammation that can make the disease worse.

Creating healthy new tissues or missing or damaged products in body.

Many patients experience improvements in the treated area and other areas, like in a Mayo Clinic study where patients benefited in both knees after experiencing injections in only one.

Stem Cell Therapy For Heart Failure Treatment

The ability of stem cells to heal the damaged muscles of the heart have been proven. For instance, studies conducted on animals have shown that stem cell therapy boosts the regeneration of new cardiac muscles through the stimulation of dormant stem cells that are present within the heart muscle.

At our facility, stem cell therapy for myocardial infarction involves injection of mesenchymal stem cells harvested from the embryo (human umbilical cord tissue).

We use stem cells from human umbilical cord tissue (allogenic mesenchymal stem cells) or other sources like fat or bone marrow.  They are usually used intravenously for CHF.

The mesenchymal stem cells are derived from umbilical donated after normal, healthy births. The medical history of each mother is screened. Test for infectious diseases is done, and each family gives their consent before donating.

All stem cells derived from umbilical cords are screened for infectious ailments. Screening is done to International Blood Bank Standards prior to usage.

As a matter of fact, a very low percentage of donated umbilical cords scale through this screening process.

What makes our facility special?

At our Los Angeles facility, we have invented modern approaches to medical care. Our approach to treatment is second to none. The harvesting process does not involve any form of drilling, and the stem cells are purified and tested for quality before injection. We also employ ultrasound to help in the precise location of high dose stem cells at the required site. These cells will then per-form their duty, promoting the formation of new tissues. We are experts in this and has seen posi-tive outcome with our treatments. Our licensed physicians have undergone intense training run-ning into thousands of hours, and so, you can be sure that you are in safe hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

From where do stem cells originate?

Stem cells are present in many tissues and organs. The bone marrow is the richest source of stem cells. However, the most convenient region for harvesting is the umbilical cord.

 

How are adult stem cells harvested?

The physician draws the stem cells from the umbilical cord. The stem cells and the growth factors will then be concentrated using specially designed equipment. The physician then injects the cells into the destined regions.

 

What’s the Cost of Stem Cell Injection?

The cost of treatment depends on the procedure performed.  We often offer discounts for returning customers or larger packages of treatment using repeated injections or combining different treatments.  We also offer a price match policy on comparing treatments done by board certified physicians.  We also have interest free payment plan options including care credit for qualifying patients. A limited number of insurance companies and Workers compensation may at times cover some of the expenses.  You may be able to get reimbursed by your insurance for your doctor visits & ultrasound cost. The consultation fee can be deducted from your future procedures, making your consolation free of cost to you.

Book a consultation with our experts to see the type of procedure that is right for you.

When will my results show up?

Stem cell therapy relies on your own regenerative healing to occur. We are all different and so is our healing process. Some patients may begin to see their results within few weeks while others may require some months. The time taken for healing to manifest also depends on the severity of the disease.

 

What can stem cell therapy potentially treat?

Stem cell therapy is beneficial to a number of conditions such as osteoarthritis, erectile dysfunction, joint pain, renal disease, neurological disorders, autism, cellular rejuvenation, etc.

 

How are stem cells administrated?

We use different methods of delivery based on the condition & symptoms.  We are able to deliver the stem cells using, ultrasound guided injections directly to the site, IV or intervenes, nebulized or intrathecal according to the condition and decision of the doctor.   We usually employ the least invasive & safest method of delivery.
