Stem Cell

What is Stem Cell?

In our body, every tissue and organ grew out of stem cells. Stem cell is different from other cells in the body.

Stem cell is able to renew itself and maintain its undifferentiated state. Under proper simulation, it can renew itself by dividing into numerous stem cells, and differentiate into specialized cells, such as cartilage cells, muscle cells, nerve cells.

Stem cell has great healing power, can repair and replace tissue in human body.

How does Stem Cell Repair Our Body?

When our skin sustains wound during injury, the wound causes inflammation, and hence stimulate the stem cells in the skin to divide, creating more skin cells to replace skin cells.

Our brain constains neural stem cell. In response to stroke, our body has its own stem cells to repair our damaged tissue; however, the ability to heal is often weakened by age and excessive wear and tear, leading to chronic diseases and loss of function.

What is Autologous Stromal Vascular Fraction?


Autologous Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) Harvesting is a procedure in which adipose (fat) tissues are removed from the body usually from the belly or back area via liposuctioning. This can be done under local anesthesia as an out-patient procedure. The removed fat tissues then get separated into several components by a specialized container under result of the separation process is a collection of cells we refer to as stromal vascular fraction (SVF). SVF is a collective term generally referring to mixture of endothelial and messenchymal stem cells and various type of hte immune cells such as T cells, B cells, mast cells and macrophages.

The newly harvested SVF can be used in many ways depending on the need of the patient. Most commonly, it will be used to infuse back, together with platelet rich plasma (PRP), for rejuvenating purpose. Apart from this, it can be injected into knee joints to promote repairing and regeneration of knee cartilage. 

SVF can also be used to culture and grow more number of mesenchymal stem cell (MSCs) in a specialized laboratory. MSCs has extensive application in many type of chronic conditions, ranging from neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple sclerosis to stable neurologic conditions , such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy etc.
