About Stem Cell Institute Panama
Founded in 2007 on the principles of providing unbiased, scientifically sound treatment options; the Stem Cell Institute (SCI) has matured into the world’s leading adult stem cell therapy and research center. In close collaboration with universities and physicians world-wide, our comprehensive stem cell treatment protocols employ well-targeted combinations of autologous bone marrow stem cells, autologous adipose stem cells, and donor human umbilical cord stem cells to treat: autism, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, and autoimmune diseases.

In partnership with Translational Biosciences, a subsidiary of Medistem Panama, SCI provides clinical services for ongoing clinical trials that are assessing safety and signs of efficacy for autism, multiple sclerosis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and spinal cord injury using allogeneic umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSC), autologous stromal vascular fraction (SVF) and hU-MSC-derived mesenchymal trophic factors (MTF). In 2014, Translation Biosciences expects to expand its clinical trial portfolio to include heart disease and cerebral palsy.

“I am riding my bike 10 miles a day, swimming, walking…all virtually PAIN FREE!” – Debra Deuble

We received this message from Debra Deuble yesterday. Debra gave us the ok to share it with everyone.

“I am a stem cell recipient from your clinic in Panama! I am grateful every day that I had this done. It has been over a year and I have not been on any medications and I feel great! I am riding my bike 10 miles a day, swimming, walking…all virtually PAIN FREE! I feel like I have had the fountain of youth! I was diagnosed with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was 37 when I had symptoms and 46 when diagnosed. Was on meds for 7 years and nothing helped. So glad I found your website in my search for a cure!!”

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells: Regeneration, Repair, Inflammation and Autoimmunity – Neil Riordan PhD (Part 2 of 2)

In part 2, Dr. Riordan discusses how mesenchymal stem cells can affect tissue repair in spinal cord injury and in heart failure; benefit to heart is not the actual MSCs modeling new tissue. It is due to the trophic effects of MSC secretions; In rats, severed spinal cords re-grew after MSCs were implanted but the human MSCs did not form new cord tissue. The trophic factors secreted by the MSCs enable the spinal cord to repair itself.; Trophic factors from MSCs modulate the immune system by blocking clonal expansion of cytotoxic T-cells; There are 35 ongoing clinical trials using mesenchymal stem cells for autoimmune diseases; Safety of donor MSCs; Every mother has MSCs from each baby she has carried; Mothers have a lower incidence of autoimmune disease; Lifespan of mothers increased linearly with each child up to 14; There are 85 ongoing clinical trials using donor MSCs. Allogeneic MSCs from bone marrow have been approved in Canada and New Zealand to treat graft vs. host disease; limbal cells used in corneal transplants are MSCs; MSCs are useful in preventing donated organ rejection; glioma growth was found to be inhibited by MSCs; MSCs eliminated breast cancer in rats.

Stem Cell Treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis – Arminda Bourin

Arminda Bourin has suffered from rheumatoid arthritis since 2003. She underwent adult stem cell therapy at the Stem Cell Institute in February 2012 because her swollen, painful ankles made it very difficult for her to walk. This interview takes place approximately one year after treatment.

Before coming to Panama, Ms. Bourin tried everything from anti-inflammatory and auto-immune medication to homeopathy and finally surgery on her left ankle, “Which I regret because if I had waited [until after the stem cell therapy], it would not have been necessary. The other foot with the same symptoms is now better without any surgery. I think it was the stem cells.”

Ms. Bourin learned about the Stem Cell Institute from her husband’s cousin, Judi Lecoq. Judy received treatment for multiple sclerosis and, “…told us how wonderful the treatment was and that she was so much better.”

Regarding the doctors, staff and clinic, “They are wonderful. Everybody has been so kind.”

Upon being asked, “Has this treatment changed your life?” Ms. Bourin responded, “Well, yes. I was not walking too much. I needed a wheelchair. It was painful anyway. So to be able to go shopping, that’s a miracle!”

Stem cell treatments for rheumatoid arthritis: Tracey Renneberg

Tracey Renneberg discusses her improvements following stem cell therapy for rheumatoid arthritis. Tracey is now in Panama multiple sclerosis treatment. “My rheumatoid arthritis is completely gone. This leg used to drag and now I can pick it up and walk. If patients have rheumatoid arthritis or MS, this is where they should be.”

Jorge Paz MD: Adult stem cell therapy for arthritis, sports injury, and autoimmune diseases (part 2 of 3)

Stem cell Treatment protocol for autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. Why stem cells must be administered systemically for autoimmune diseases. Dr. Paz elaborates on the disadvantages of same-day fat-derived stem cell treatments. He presents the scientific rationale for treating rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with fat-derived stem cells along with a published case report including patient video. Presentation of similarities between MS and RA and how MS is treated with a combination of human umbilical cord-derived stem cells and adipose stem cells. Dr. Paz discusses why MS treatment includes umbilical cord-derived stem cells.

Jorge Paz MD: Adult stem cell therapy for arthritis, sports injury, and autoimmune diseases (part 1 of 3)

In Part 1 of 3 Dr. Paz discusses his internal medicine background in New York and Texas, and how he got involved with stem cell treatments in Panama. He highlights why licensing, technology and quality control make the Stem Cell Institute in Panama different from other clinics around the world. Dr. Paz then touches on why “same-day” fat-derived stem cell treatments are less than ideal. He concludes part 1 by discussing several US universities with which the Stem Cell Institute has collaborated on research.

Dr. Paz is the Medical Director at The Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama

Non-controversial stem sells: rationale for clinical use: Neil Riordan, Ph.D. – (Miami)

Dr. Riordan is the Founder of the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama.

Stem Cell Treatments for Pemphygoid: Jane Wrede

“With such strong signs of remission and impatience with side effects, I took it upon myself to taper prednisone from 20 to 7.5mg/day and after 3 weeks at 7.5, I see no change in my healthy oral condition. All sores healed and no new blisters. I count this as successful!”

My name is Jane Wrede I have an autoimmune disease called Pemphygoid. Pemphygoid symptoms in my mouth and throat gradually improved after stem cell treatment so that my gums are firm, I feel no pain and can eat all but hot and spicy food! My eyes continue to be dry and I use sterile drops when they feel tired and sore. This is less severe than before and not until late in the day and sometimes at night. With such strong signs of remission and impatience with side effects, I took it upon myself to taper prednisone from 20 to 7.5mg/day and after 3 weeks at 7.5, I see no change in my healthy oral condition. All sores healed and not new blisters. I count this as successful!
