The cellular therapy, process in which they are implemented new cells In a tissue, to be able to treat a serious disease, it is an alternative of greater importance for the future of medicine, since it could treat diseases that currently can only be treated with a transplant , He said Julieta Rojo Medina , general director of the National Center for Blood Transfusion (CNTS).
The stem cells are considered at the international level as an alternative for the tissue regeneration and the effectiveness of the cellular therapy in conditions that damage vital organs such as kidney and the heart , said Medina at the First International Symposium of the Bank of Blood and Cord Umbilical and Regenerative Medicine, General Hospital of Mexico.
In an interview for GetQoralHealth , the certified midwife, Gabriela Zebadúa Baqueiro, It explains how the stem cells are collected in water births:
The CNTS has the only Umbilical Cord Bank public in the country, which already has 1, 700 units available for patients who require it. Currently 70% of the progenitor cells are used for the treatment of pediatric patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, aplastic anemia and malignant lymphomas .
This is the first symposium that has the support of the Academic Exchange Service of Germany. Juan Miguel Abdo Francis , deputy general director of the General Hospital of Mexico, said that the vanguard in medicine is the cellular therapy , so that the realization of this symposium opens the doors of knowledge and scientific advances to Mexican doctors worldwide.
Among the outstanding topics that will be discussed in the next 2 days, we will talk about cellular therapy in burns, platelet-derived growth factor and angiogenesis, progenitor cells of periodontal tissues and tissue engineering: clinical application, among others.
