Liver Cirrhosis Treatment

Therapies completed: over 70

Patients receiving therapy for this condition not only receive injections of the cell packets by IV but also by intravascular interventional injections. This injection is minimally invasive as it places the stem cells directly into a target vein/artery through a catheter, allowing the cells access directly to the areas of damage. This type of injection allows for better efficacy of therapy.

General Protocol: Below is the general protocol for liver cirrhosis. Please keep in mind that this is only an example and the injection and cell types may change slightly depending on the patient’s condition.

  • UC-MSC packets injected by IV and interventional injections through hepatic artery

Submitting Medical Information: When submitting medical information please note that our doctors do usually request to view certain medical documents to confirm the diagnosis. You should try to provide these at the same time or shortly after the medical form has been submitted.

  • Standard Documents: Blood results including liver and coagulation results, MRI/CT report for the liver and current mediations
  • Blood results should include: AST, ALP, ALB, PT and APTT

Studies

Below is a link to the Clinical Summary of Stem Cell Therapy for Liver Cirrhosis. This study was conducted from 2008 to 2009 and focuses on 65 patients of liver cirrhosis receiving stem cells. Patients’ liver and coagulation function was tested before and after the administering of stem cell therapy. Click the link below to view the Study PDFs in your browser and save it to your computer.
