Frequently Asked Questions

Regenerative medicine can be used to regenerate tissues and organs that have been lost or damaged due to disease, accidents, or aging. Body stem cells diminishes with age. By replenishing them, the regenerative capacity of the human body can be maximized to seek recovery.

Stem cells include ES cells, adult stem cells, and iPS cells, but one of the adult stem cells, “mesenchymal stem cells,” is currently the mainstay of regenerative medicine.

Mesenchymal stem cells are derived from bone marrow, umbilical cord, fat, or dental marrow, but bone marrow-derived stem cells are the best in terms of effectiveness, sustainability, and safety.

Bone marrow-derived stem cells are very primitive and therefore have no rejection agents. As a result, although they are foreign cells to the patient, there is no rejection when they are incorporated.

In fact, bone marrow stem cells have the ability to suppress rejection, to the extent that Temcell HS Injection, which uses allogenic bone marrow stem cells , has been approved and marketed as a drug to suppress acute rejection (acute GVHD) at the time of organ transplantation.

As for the side effects, we recommend that you take your time and stay calm on the day of the treatment, as some people may experience tiredness or sleepiness after the treatment.

In addition to anti-aging and health promotion, it is used to treat diseases which have not been cured by conventional surgeries or drugs.

Examples include, graft-versus-host disease, heart disease, osteoarthritis, bone and cartilage injuries, diabetes and its complications, malignancies, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, cirrhosis, respiratory diseases, Crohn’s disease, autoimmune diseases, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), myocardial infarction, stroke, disc degeneration, anemia, Alzheimer’s disease, brain injury, Parkinson’s disease and many other diseases.

In the case of bone marrow stem cells, the effect is said to last one to three years, while for umbilical cords, fat, and dental pulp, it is said to last around six months to a year.

Stem cells continue to diminish as we age, so it is recommended that you receive them regularly, even after you have finished treating your illness or injury.

People with leukemia and stage 3 or higher cancer are not eligible for the treatment.

The bone marrow-derived stem cells “KINTARO Cells®︎” are derived from bone marrow fluid donated by healthy Russians in their 20s (mainly 20-25 years old) and cultured from stem cells.

The amount collected is just 20 ml (about one-tenth of the amount for a bone marrow transplant for leukemia), and the needle is thin, so the stress on the donor is kept to a minimum.

You can do it at any age. The youngest patient treated with “KINTARO Cells®︎” is 10 years old.

Yes, they are also eligible for treatment.

Bone marrow stem cells have been shown to be highly effective in animals other than humans. Please contact us if you are interested.
