Cirrhosis of Liver


Cirrhosis of Liver
is a consequence of chronic liver disease characterized by replacement of liver tissue by fibrosisscar tissue and regenerative nodules (lumps that occur as a result of a process in which damaged tissue is regenerated), leading to loss of liver function. Cirrhosis is most commonly caused by alcoholismhepatitis B and C, and fatty liver disease, but has many other possible causes. Some cases are idiopathic, i.e., of unknown cause.

Ascites (fluid retention in the abdominal cavity) is the most common complication of cirrhosis, and is associated with a poor quality of life, increased risk of infection, and a poor long-term outcome. Other potentially life-threatening complications are hepatic encephalopathy (confusion and coma) and bleeding from esophageal varices. Cirrhosis is generally irreversible, and treatment usually focuses on preventing progression and complications. In advanced stages of cirrhosis the only option is a liver transplant.

What are the symptoms of cirrhosis?

80% of cirrhosis occurs quietly, without attracting the attention of either the patient or doctor. Other patients complain of fatigue, pain in right hypochondrium, abdominal distension, intermittent darkening of urine, weight loss, a tendency to bruises, reddening of the palms. Many patients with cirrhosis of the liver are recognized only during development of complications: the accumulation of fluid in the abdomen, impaired consciousness, bleeding from the esophagus and stomach, jaundice.


Treatment of liver cirrhosis by stem cells

The first and most important rule - to begin the treatment of cirrhosis of the liver with stem cells as early as possible with the initial symptoms of the disease - is a guarantee of a speedy recovery of your liver.

Stem Cell Treatment of cirrhosis of the liver is the ability of stem cells to replace a damaged cells tissue, which leads to the restoration of body functions.

The additional stem cells enter into a zone of destruction of hepatocytes, replace damaged cells in the liver by healthy ones and, thus, normalize the restorative processes in the liver.

At the end of the treatment a significant improvement in blood biochemical parameters (albumin, total bilirubin, SGOT, SGPT) is revealed. Significantly it improves the general condition of patients, decreased in yellowness of the skin, itching of the skin diminishes etc. It is important that there have been no any adverse effects of such treatment.

Of all the above it follows that the stem cells treatment of cirrhosis of the liver leads to rapid regeneration of the organ.

Stem Cell Transplantation Vs Liver Transplantation

Cell transplantation is a vastly different approach to medical therapy and cannot be immediately understood by mind accustomed to deal with Liver Transplantation & drug (chemical) therapy.

In order to comprehend this statement, you should visualize that 

  • everything in the living body is in constant motion: electrons, protons, and other elementary particles of each atom, all atoms, all molecules, all cell organelles of every cell, as well as all fluids, which represent between 75 and 55% of body weight (depending upon age), and that 

  • there is electromagnetic radiation associated with all such movement, a 

  • and finally the following:

 Every cell in your body is programmed to die, and it does so before you die. (The sole exception may be certain neurons.) 

All cells of our body are being continuously replaced. In every disease the principal cells of a diseased organ(s) die faster than the sick body is able to replace them. 

When the quantity of principal cells of a diseased organ (s) drops below certain limit, such organ (s) dies. 

Current medicine knows of one treatment only when it becomes mandatory to replace dead cells, tissues, or organs: transplantation.

Liver Transplantation from human donors, such as heart, kidney, liver, etc., has become fairly common nowadays. These are life saving major surgical procedures, usually carried out as a 'treatment of last resort'. 

Besides the surgical risk, there is always a problem of rejection: the body of the recipient patient rejects transplanted organ from another body with guarantee, and the only way to prevent it is by taking immunosuppressant for the rest of patientís life. These drugs can stop a rejection for some time, but only at the expense of serious, often life-endangering, complications.

Some organs cannot be transplanted, such as brain, immune system, so that many diseases cannot be treated by organ transplantation.

Stem cell transplantation has historically preceded organ transplantation by several decades. It will apparently dominate the medicine of 21st century. The main reasons for such statements are:

  • Stem cell transplantation is a minor procedure for a patient, and for that reason it can be, and should be, used in the earlier stages of those diseases that current medicine cannot cure, or even treat. It means that there is no logical reason to wait until the end-stage, as is the case with organ transplantation.

  • One of the reasons why stem cell transplantation is such a simple procedure for a patient to go through is the principle of 'homing'. 

    'Homing' means that the respective stem cells do not have to be implanted into a damaged organ, (i.e. liver stem cells into liver), they can be implanted into more accessible superficial tissues, because they will find their way into the damaged organ, as if  'attracted' by it, and will do so within 7 days of the date of implantation. 

  • Every diseased organ can be treated by stem cell transplantation.

  • Besides sometimes serving as a replacement for dead cells of a diseased organ, the transplanted cells can bring back to life (or repair) those cells of such organ which actually have not died, just stopped functioning as a result of the disease. 
    In other words, besides transplanting new stem cells there is usually another mechanism of action of stem cell transplantation: a 'direct stimulation of regeneration (or repair)'.

  • If stem cells are properly prepared, such as by BCRO method, they can be implanted without immunosuppression, and thus avoid all complications caused by the use of such medications.

Under the Oath of Hippocrates physicians should treat their patients the best way they know how. 

There are no incurable diseases only that we do not know how to cure yet. 

The above can be studied in a textbook of E. Michael Molnar, M.D. "Stem Cell Transplantation, a Textbook of Stem Cell Xeno-Transplantation", published by Medical And Engineering Publishers, Inc., Washington, D.C., in February 2006, the first textbook for medical profession and students in the world about this subject.
