Adult Stem Cell Therapy Breakthrough Leads to Crowd Funding Campaign on Indiegogo.com for Centagen, Inc.
Centagen, Inc. has announced a new discovery that allows for the expansion of a person’s own adult stem cells up to a million times without aging. The company believes this will greatly improve treatment for many types of chronic pain, disability and diseases. This might even be a real beginning at reversing the aging process since it supplies the body with a large number of one’s own rejuvenated stem cells to rebuild organs and tissues that have been damaged by aging, injury or disease. Even better this type of adult stem cell therapy could be available fairly soon.
Each of us has a limited supply of the kind of stem cells needed to rebuild, repair, and rejuvenate any part of our body. As we age, the supply and healing power of our stem cells diminishes. By providing a practically unlimited supply of one’s own rejuvenated stem cells, we may keep people young and healthy for well over a century. In particular, regenerating tissues and organs prepared by expanding one’s own stem cells could help with Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, immune senescence, damaged heart tissue, arteriosclerosis, failing kidneys, failing hearing or eyesight, osteoporosis, weak muscles, and aged skin.
The technology requires no genetic engineering of the stem cells, so the procedure is much safer than the current procedures requiring genetic tampering. Only a patient’s adult stem cells are used, so there are no ethical issues common with embryonic stem cell use or side effects due to tissue rejection by your immune system.
Centagen has recently opened a crowd funding bid at http://www.indiegogo.com/centagen in concert withMaximum Life foundation, whose mission is to make “100 years old the new 50”.
