What are stem cells?  Stem cells: The body’s master cells

What is a stem cell?

Stem cells are the body’s raw materials — cells from which all other cells with specialized functions are generated. Under the right conditions in the body or a laboratory, stem cells divide to form more cells, called daughter cells. These daughter cells either become new stem cells (self-renewal) or become specialized cells (differentiation) with a more specific function, such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle or bone.
Stem cells are unique — no other cell in the body has
the natural ability to generate new cell types.  Commonly, stem cells come from two main sources:
What are stem cells?
Embryos formed during the blastocyst phase of embryological development (embryonic stem cells) and
Adult tissue (adult stem cells).
Both types are generally characterized by their potency, or potential to differentiate into different cell types.

Potency

Stem cells are categorized by their potential to differentiate into other types of cells. Embryonic stem cells are the most potent since they must become every type of cell in the body.  The full classification includes:

1)  Totipotent – the ability to differentiate into all possible cell types. Examples are the zygote formed at egg fertilization and the first few cells that result from the division of the zygote.

2)  Multipotent – the ability to differentiate into a closely related family of cells. Examples include hematopoietic (adult) stem cells that can become red and white blood cells or platelets.

3)  Oligopotent – the ability to differentiate into a few cells. Examples include (adult) lymphoid or myeloid stem cells.

4)  Unipotent – the ability to only produce cells of their own type, but have the property of self-renewal required to be labeled a stem cell. Examples include (adult) muscle stem cells

5)  Pluripotent – the ability to differentiate into almost all cell types.


Adult stem cells can be found in a variety of tissues; these are only a few examples.

Adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).  These types of cells are “pluripotent”,  meaning that they have the potential to morph  into almost any type tissue and attempt to  repair damaged organs and tissues. TriZellion’s MSCs are “immature,” which increases their potential for regeneration. Second-generation treatment process, uses MSCs that have been extracted from the patient’s own bone marrow.  Afterwards they the MSCs are replicated at one of Trizellion’s european GMP, treatment centers and then returned to the patient. Once these “builder cells”, are back within the host, they instruct the bodies natural healing process to regenerate and even generate new tissue.  Unfortunately, there is no way to guarantee treatment, as there is a vast amount of variables that affect it and why TriZellion puts great emphasis on treating the total patient.  This specific Adult stem cell therapy has the potential to address multiple disorders of the liver, pancreas, heart muscle and nerves, among others.

Dendritic cells (DCs) are the body’s sentinels against disease. These “messenger” cells “read” and share information about cancer cells. DCs are obtained through a simple blood draw, multiplied in TriZellion’s GMP Laboratory and returned to the patient where they help induce primary immune responses by alerting natural killer cells to launch an attack. TriZellion and its associates have successfully treated many cancer patients, among these, a large percentage were in the end stages of the disease. Using DC therapy, combined with some form of hyperthermia (see below), remission was experienced.

Natural Killer Cells (NKs) can kill certain cells in a process called natural killing. Drawn from a patients own blood, these “fighter” cells are used as an offensive measure to kill cancer cells.

Hyperthermia is a temperature-raising therapy to detoxify the body. When the core body temperature is increased, the immune system roughly doubles its activity, stepping up the positive activity of immune competent cells. Depending on the nature of the treatment, hyperthermia may be localized or it may involve the whole body. At TriZellion’s clinics, hyperthermia treatments are combined with cellular and other therapies to multiply the immune defense reaction.

Immune Restoration Treatment The immune function can be significantly improved by infusion of various immune modulators such as peptides, antioxidants, vitamins and trace elements. Patients undergoing tissue regeneration and tissue repair also receive infusions of these compounds based on their individual requirements. There is a potential for patients to begin to experience beneficial effects of these treatments before they leave the treatment center.
