Undifferentiated cells from the embryo that have the
potential to become a variety of specialized cell types. Also
called hES (human Embryonic Stem Cells), embryonic stem cells
are cells derived from the inner cell mass of a developing
blastocysts. A hES is self-renewing (can replicate itself) and
is pluripotent (can form into all 220 different cell types found
in the human body.)
At this time Stem Cells for Hope does not offer or use embryonic stem cells in our patient treatment protocols. There are many research studies that are currently in progress that may some day yield a safe and effective methodology of using technology derived from the study of embryonic stem cell to treat patients safely.

Stem cells found in different tissues of the developed, adult organism that remain in an undifferentiated, or unspecialized, state. These stem cells can give rise to specialized cell types. Usually derived from adult human blood located in the bone marrow and re-infused back into the same donor.

Stem cells are present in the blood of the umbilical cord during and shortly after delivery. These stem cells are in the blood at the time of delivery, because they move from the liver of the fetus, where blood-formation takes place during fetal life, to the bone marrow, where blood is made after birth. Thus they are in the same category as Adult Stem Cells.
These Stem Cell types are capable of performing three important functions with proven unique abilities:
Plasticity: Potential to change into other cell types like nerve cells, heart cells, muscle cells, liver cells, pancreatic cells, brain cells, skin cells, etc.
Homing: The ability to travel to the site of tissue, cell or organ damage.
Engraftment: To unite with other tissues and regenerate the damage cells, tissue or organ.
The recommended stay at one of our hospital or clinic
facilities will be for approximately five (5) to seven (7) days.
The duration of the treatment and final cost will be determined
by the proposed treatment protocol for any particular patient
after the diagnosis by our Medical and Scientific Advisory Board
and the number of treating physicians required to be in
attendance. Different patient conditions require unique and
different treatment protocols specific to their current
condition. Our staff will pick you up at the airport near one of
our clinic locations and take you directly to the clinic,
hospital or to the local hotel as necessary.
The Stem Cells for Hope treatment cost will include; transportation to and from the local airport, the appropriate number of days stay at the clinic, hospital or hotel for the patient as well as another family member or companion. This also includes all meals (in the Eastern European clinic’s only) and around the clock medical care and supervision at all locations. In addition, included is the development and preparation of the Stem Cells for Hope Stem Cell treatment solution (number of doses) and other medical procedures for your own personal treatment program as well as for the services of the required medical specialists necessary for your specific treatment.
The treatment protocol we develop for each patient is different depending on a number of factors and the current medical condition of the patient. Basically, the success of our unique transplantation therapy consists of IM (intra-muscular) injections of stem cells, an IV (intravenous) transfusion of a large amount of the human stem cell solution into the patient’s circulatory system and when required, a sub-dural injection into the spinal column of the stem cell biological solution. This method delivers the Adult Stem Cells or Cord Blood Stem Cells directly to the brain for a maximum concentration of the cells to the effected damaged area. Other delivery methods are also used depending on the treatment protocol. This allows for the maximum delivery of the stem cells for the regeneration of the specific damaged areas of the body and the rejuvenating regeneration of other associated cells, tissue and organs within the body.

Stem Cells for Hope specifically uses two different types of stem cells for our proprietary treatment protocol. Depending on the diagnosis we will be using your own Adult Stem Cells harvested from your own bone marrow or Stem Cells derived from umbilical cord blood.
Patient Receiving Stem Cells Via a Sub Dural Injection Into The Spine
There are many other types of Stem Cells discussed in the
news and within the medical community. However we have found
that these stem cells are the most ethical and effective to use
in the treatment of our patients.

There is no other Stem Cell Transplantation Treatment company that can;
1) Provide the sufficient quantity (##Million of cells) of Stem Cells for the transplant,
2) Provides the quality of the Stem Cells (type of cells) for a patient dose for maximum efficacy,
3.) Provide the best consultations, around the clock medical care, supervision and post treatment follow-up for all our patients.
