Regenerative Medicine Using Stem Cells: Autologous v. Allogeneic

Regenerative medicine using stem cells has been under research for nearly 3 decades. Since its discovery, it has undergone multiple trials and medical scientists have developed various methods to derive and administer the mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to patients. This promising branch of research has shown benefits in almost any form, yet there is one type of regenerative medicine that shows the most promising results. Wharton’s Jelly, a gelatinous substance found within a human umbilical cord, is the leading choice for medical professionals addressing patients with degenerative issues and chronic pain. At Chronic Care of Richmond & Regenerative Medicine, we use the mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from Wharton’s Jelly in our regenerative medicine procedures. Wharton’s Jelly is derived via an allogeneic process, versus the autologous method of other practices.

Autologous Regenerative Therapy

Autologous regenerative therapy refers to using stem cells that are taken from the patient’s own body. Derived from bone marrow or fat tissue, these stem cells are reinjected into the problem area. While many regenerative medical practices offer autologous methods, there are multiple downsides and potential dangers. In order to obtain MSCs from your own body, physicians will drill a hole into your bone to extract bone marrow or use a large needle to extract fat tissues. Both of these major surgeries are painful, require recovery time, and can lead to potential infection or complications. Additionally, there is no way for the physician to know the quantity or potency of the MSCs within your bone marrow or fat tissues. Unfortunately, age and poor health correlate negatively with MSC availability, so it is very possible that your bone marrow or fat tissue does not contain enough viable MSCs to even support a regenerative medicine procedure. The tissue found in bone marrow and fat tissue also does not contain Wharton’s Jelly, the researcher preferred MSC source.

Allogeneic Regenerative Therapy

Allogeneic therapy, the MSC method used at Chronic Care of Richmond & Regenerative Medicine, uses Wharton’s Jelly. Wharton’s Jelly is a gelatinous substance derived solely from human umbilical cords of full-term, healthy babies. This substance provides insulation and protection within the umbilical cord and it is full of viable, potent MSCs. All of the Wharton's Jelly that we use comes from the donated umbilical cords of screened, healthy patients. Allogeneic is the preferred therapy method because it is non-invasive and less dangerous to the patient. Patients can expect a non-invasive, drug free procedure when they visit Chronic Care of Richmond & Regenerative Medicine. Additionally, allogeneic extraction guarantees more potent MSCs. As humans age, the number of MSCs in their body greatly depletes. Newborn babies, on the other hand, have 100% of their lifetime supply of MSCs. Harvesting these MSCs from donated umbilical cords allows us to offer regenerative medicine that utilizes stem cells that is more viable in regenerative possibilities.

Chronic care of Richmond has relieved the pain in my knee that I had been going to get fluid drained and shots that only lasted a couple of weeks.

The cartilage in both of my knees had eroded to the point where I could hardly walk without a cane.

MSC's - Chronic Care of Richmond & Regenerative Medicine

MSCs are the building blocks of life. These potent cells have the ability to differentiate or develop into various different types of cells. They are referred to as undifferentiated, or unspecialized, because they can follow different developmental paths. MSCs play an important role in the early life of a fetus as they form into major organs, tissues, and other bodily systems. During early childhood years, MSCs aid in healing and growing. As we grow older, we begin to lose MSCs and our healing processes slow down. By harvesting Wharton’s Jelly from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term babies, physicians can utilize the natural healing abilities of potent MSCs. At Chronic Care of Richmond & Regenerative Medicine, we utilize Wharton’s Jelly to address the degeneration of tissue and cartilage that is present in patients suffering from chronic pain, inflammation, and arthritis. MSCs are the most viable component of our therapy - that is why we only source them from the best origin. Clinics using autologous methods are endangering their patients and sourcing impotent cells. Allogeneic sourcing allows us to safely extract the most potent MSCs.
