Cirrhosis of Liver is a consequence of
chronic liver disease
characterized by replacement of liver tissue by fibrosis, scar 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 alcoholism, hepatitis
B and C, and fatty
liver disease, but has many other
possible causes. Some cases are idiopathic, i.e., of unknown
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
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
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),
is electromagnetic radiation associated with all such
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:
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
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
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:
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.
the reasons why stem cell transplantation is such a simple
procedure for a patient to go through is the principle of
'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
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
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
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

medical profession and students in the world about this subject.
