Individual Therapies (personalized medicine)

Body’s own (autologous) adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) can be used to treat disease and medical conditions of the locomotory such as arthrosis, muscle, ligament and tendon injuries as well as other joint complaints. They are ideally suited for soft tissue reconstruction (e.g. breast augmentations as an alternative to silicone) as part of a technique called cell-assisted lipotransfer (CAL). Additionally, ASCs can be applied for the treatment of damaged skin and subcutaneous fatty tissue after burns or irradiation

Stem cells for Everybody

Conventional therapies with foreign (allogenic) cells or organs can induce an inflammatory response in the recipient. We know this phenomenon as rejection reaction e.g. after organ transplantation. Mesenchymal stem cells, however, are weakly immunogenic (immune-privileged) meaning they are not recognized by the immune system due to a lack of specific surface receptors. Therefore, thousands of patients can easily be treated with a fat graft from a single donor.
The development of modern therapies is only just beginning but the possibilities for stem cell applications seem unlimited.

Systemic Therapies:

  • Autoimmune diseases (type 1 diabetes, rheumatic diseases)
  • Neurological disorders (Parkinson, Multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s)
  • Cardiomyopathies (myocardial infarction)
  • Stroke
  • Cancer treatments (leukemia etc.)
  • Peripheral arterial occlusive disease, circulatory disorders
  • Lifestyle treatments (anti-aging, beauty, etc.)

Local Therapies:

  • Joint disease (cartilage damage, arthrosis, arthritis)
  • Tendonitis and overuse injuries
  • Fracture diseases (pseudarthroses)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Soft tissue reconstruction applying cell assisted lipotransfer (CAL): Breast reconstruction after breast surgery, breast augmentation (alternative to silicone)
  • Skin damage after irradiation
  • Chronic wounds
  • Facelift with stem cells
  • Erectile Dysfunction
