There’s Hope After Stroke
CBC Health is providing experimental cord blood infusions for individuals across the globe who have had an ischemic stroke. CBC Health is introducing an innovative paradigm for stroke recovery that is based on neuroregenerative medicine. Ischemic stroke victims who are treated by CBC Health professionals may benefit from regenerative improvements in the brain that could include:
Mediate restorative effects of progenitor cells
Neurotrophins reduce cell death and increase cell growth
Immune modulation and paracrine signaling stimulate cell repair
Promotes cellular healing and cell regeneration
Why Choose CBC Health’s Stroke Recovery Treatment Over Others
In comparison to other stem cell treatments for ischemic stroke, CBC Health only uses allogeneic cord blood stem cells, whereas, other companies use autologous stem cells. Autologous stem cell treatments require invasive procedures to harvest stem cells from the stroke patient prior to treatment. CBC Health uses cord blood that is readily available, tested and stored by Europe’s second-largest private cord blood repository, Cord Blood Center Group.
Allogeneic cord blood stem cells offer the following benefits when compared to autologous stem cells:
- Increased cell replacement
- Faster growth rates
- Neurotrophic Influence
- More immunologically beneficial
- Readily available
- More therapeutic cells and proteins
Industry Support for Cord Blood Stem Cell Treatments
"Factors secreted by the transplanted (umbilical cord) cells were able to offer a neuroprotective effect. This may relate to the cells secreting vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF), brain-derived growth factors (BDNF), and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3), all of which have potential benefits for the treatment of stroke."
"What they (stem cells) do is to pump out very powerful growth factors, molecules and proteins that enhance native mechanisms of recovery, such as new synapses of neurons that are there, new blood vessels, and they have a very profound effect on modulating the immune system."
"We believe that the primitive cells found in whole umbilical cord blood can help reduce swelling in the brain faster and rescue some brain cells that are on the brink of death."
"Through cultivation of stem cells extracted from the cord blood, patients with spinal injuries have a great chance of having their damaged nervous system repaired, helping them to rise on their feet again."
