Liver cirrhosis, a disease with high mortality rate, is called as “a prelude to liver cancer”. With enormous harms to health, it is difficult to be cured. Liver is a very soft organ. As the ongoing liver inflammation occurs, liver cells die constantly. But the liver cannot catch up with speed of cell necrosis to regenerate new cells. Therefore, the necrotic cells will spread all over the liver fibrous tissue, making the liver surface become rough gradually. It is like surface of the moon which is rough and hard. This is how the liver cirrhosis comes into being.
Usually, the symptoms of liver cirrhosis are not easy to be found at the early stage but at the advanced stage. The symptoms are as follows:
1. Tiredness and weakness
2. Nausea, vomiting, and abdominal distention
3. Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
4. Edema of lower extremity and ascites
5. Gum bleeding and gastrointestinal bleeding
6. Spider spots on the chest and red spots on the palm
7. Enlargement of breast, menopause, or atrophy of testis
8. Liver pain or upper abdomen pain, diarrhea, and hepatic coma
1. Liver function test
2. Ultrasound examination for liver. 80% of liver cirrhosis patients are diagnosed via ultrasound examination.
3. Liver biopsy is used to judge whether the local focus is abnormal or not.
4. Radioisotope Liver Scan
In the past decade, liver cirrhosis was listed in the top 10 death causes. Liver cirrhosis has greatly affected people’s health. It is reported that more than 780,000 people died of complications of hepatitis B including liver cirrhosis and liver cancer.
Stem Cell Transplantation, a new treatment for liver cirrhosis, is one of the most advanced and popular medical techniques. Compared with liver transplantation, stem cell therapy can avoid immunological rejection and ethical issue, having the advantages of lower risk, less pain, lower cost, fewer side effects, etc.
According to clinical experiment, stem cells can directly reach to the damaged liver cells after the transplantation. On the one side, these stem cells can differentiate into new liver cells. On the other side, they can wake up the regenerative function of liver cells. Additionally, they can secrete different kinds of cell factors to repair the damaged liver cells. Via these three combined actions, the damaged liver cells are repaired and replaced, so the liver function recovers gradually.
Stem cell therapy which is called as the magical “Resurrection of Liver” is beneficial to treat liver cirrhosis and liver ascites. After receiving stem cell transplantation for 2-4 weeks, the symptoms, including loss of appetite, tiredness, ascites, etc, are reduced or disappear. After 8-12 weeks, stem cells begin to differentiate; eight key biochemical indexes of liver function have a chance to recover. 3-6 months later, with increase of new liver cells, the damaged liver tissue can be repaired, and the liver function recovers gradually. Besides, the patients may receive overall improvement and recovery.
1. Liver Transplantation
There is a risk of liver transplantation. For the living donor, taking the part of healthy liver will burden the donator with side effects of the operation.
Medical Experts Comment: Although liver transplantation is an effective treatment for hepatic failure patients, it is limited by some problems including lack of donators, expensive medical cost, and immunological rejection after operation etc.
Why Not Choose Other Treatments?
2. Medication Treatment
Liver cirrhosis is a common serious liver disease. A large number of liver cells turn into necrosis, which leads to hepatic failure. If patients are only treated by medication, the fatality rate is up to 70%.
1. Quality of Stem Cells
Normally, it is ineffective that the peripheral blood stem cells or marrow stem cells are injected into the patient’s body only after simple cell separation. Asian Cells Center uses special technology to separate and culture high quality stem cells with better treatment effects.
Influent Factor of Stem Cell Therapy
2. Approach of Transplantation
Our center uses the hepatic arterial intervention to transplant stem cells. At present, there are the normal approaches in the world including intravenous infusion and liver puncture transplantation. But our experts hold that hepatic artery is the nutrient artery of liver, so hepatic arterial intervention is the best way for stem cells transplantation.
1. Mengkonfirmasi indikator yang berkaitan dengan terapi
2. Para Ahli menentukan jenis sel yang akan digunakan. Melalui proses diferensiasi , pensterilan yang ketat di laboratorium
3. Proses Terapi Stem Cell dijalani di ruang intervensi
4. Sudah bisa beraktivitas 1 hari pasca pengobatan
5. Hari ke-5 sudah ada indikator yang relevan dan berkhasiat
6. Hari ke-7 sudah diperbolehkan pulang
Modern Hospital Guangzhou has been accredited by the international authoritative institution JCI (Joint Commission International). Its subordinated cells center has passed the ISO certification. The cells center is equipped with professional cell culture labs, advanced biological detecting instruments, experienced doctors and nurses as well as international leading stem cell technologies. All these help Asian Cells Center get the official approval from the Ministry of Health and Army Medical Department. Asian Cells Center has become one of the few stem cell therapy institutions which are accredited. In recent years, our cells center has made great achievements in the field of stem cell treatment, especially in complicated diseases like anti-aging, diabetes, liver cirrhosis, kidney failure, Parkinson, stroke, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries. Modern Hospital Guangzhou brings new hope for patients.
Cells will be put in an incubator which is about 4-10 degrees. Then it will be delivered to the lab for isolated culture.
During cultivation period, stem cells have to undergo the process of thawing, breeding, amplifying, inducing, testing and examination, so as to ensure the stability, safety and high-activity.
There are strict standards on the reservation and transportation of stem cells. Stem cells have to be stored in a very low temperature, which is about -196 degrees, and they are needed to inject into human body as quickly as possible. Generally, the stem cells should be injected into human body in one hour since they are taken out from the lab.
The artery interventional therapy, which is performed in the cells center of Modern Hospital Guangzhou, creates a new way for human stem cell transplantation. If the stem cells are injected from the veins, they will be transported to other organs in the human body via blood circulation, as a result, only few stem cells can get into the lesion. However, the artery interventional therapy helps inject the stem cells to the lesion precisely, avoid the decline in number, and improve the survival rate and efficacy of stem cells.
Oral administration, smearing, spray are wrong and useless ways that go against the basic principles of stem cells, and these wrong ways have no efficacy.
Doctors and nurses in the cells center are hard-working and responsible, experts diagnose and treat patients in person, and specially make them best individual medical plan based on the etiology, progression of disease and their own condition, so as to ensure that every patient get the best stem cells and treatment, also keep the efficacy of stem cells at a leading domestic level.

Disclaimer: Operation is effective to early solid tumors, but it’s not suitable for most middle or advanced tumors. Patient with middle or advanced tumor is relatively weak, but the combination of minimally invasive therapy and chemotherapy or radiotherapy can effectively reduce the harm and side effects brought by the treatment and help patient get better efficacy.
