SC21 – 21st Century Cellular Medicines Specialists
Stem cells can work wonders. But there is still much misunderstanding as to what they are, what they do, and how they work.
But StemCells21 can clear all that up for you. It’s a one-stop-shop with strict quality control. All of SC21’s cellular medicines are produced in its laboratories and all its treatments are performed at its state-of-the-art medical center in Bangkok.
StemCells21’s laboratory is a full-scale culture & analysis laboratory specializing in the production & treatment of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (StemCells21), and Natural Killer Cells (ImmuneCells21). It has also launched a new generation of regenerative medicine called Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSC21), which hold great potential for impacting chronic diseases in the quest for anti-aging.
The lab has seven scientists & stem cell researchers, a couple of who have worked with Professor Shinya Yamanaka, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2012 for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent (iPS cells).
Before StemCells21 was created, Managing Director Paul Collier and co-founder Sergei Dmitrievs experienced the power of stem cells— either first hand or through the treatment of someone close to them. They knew that stem cells could deliver positive health results, and also knew stem cell treatments—and the clinics that administered them—had room for improvement.
After deep laboratory investigation, they came to see that most clinics utilized relatively low-quality stem cells and incomplete treatments. While these clinics could deliver a certain level of positive results, they were only scratching the surface of the promise that stem cell treatments could deliver.
The clinics themselves also often offered a less-than-ideal patient experience. Most of the clinics were chaotic, unprofessional, and unwelcoming. Patients were often administered a single treatment and sent on their way, unsure if they had experienced an efficacious treatment or if they had traveled and paid for nothing.
StemCells21 was created to offer superior results and a welcoming experience. It was set up to provide the global community with access to treatments that few people know are available, and to offer health benefits that are superior to what most people ever imagined were possible.
Located in Bangkok, the SC21 facility houses the StemCells21, ImmuneCells21 & IPS21 laboratories, and the luxury 5* medical center – IntelliHealth+ (IH+) Clinic.
IntelliHealth+ is a state-of-the-art medical center licensed by the Thai medical authorities. The luxurious design, efficient workflow layouts, and modern treatments make it the ideal choice for customers seeking a premium level of healthcare in 5* settings.
The center treats patients from all over the world and has staff who speak fluent English, Arabic, Chinese, Russian, Thai, and Spanish.
SC21’s come from all corners of the globe for these cutting-edge treatments. Many VIPs travel to the clinic including presidents, prime ministers, sports stars, football managers, bank owners, and heads of major corporations, many of whom return every six to twelve months and have been doing so for years.
Recently SC21 treated a ten-year-old British boy who had Ewing sarcoma develop in his arm, which then spread to other areas. He had exhausted all available treatments in the UK. His trip and treatment were sponsored by UK football teams and the public. Since he started treatment he’s put on weight, he’s vibrant, and his demeanor has totally changed. Various tests and scans have shown he is responding very well to the immunotherapy course and will perform another round in a few months’ time.
SC21 focuses on three main areas: anti-aging and longevity; orthopedic and muscular-skeletal issues (knee, hip, back & shoulder); and chronic diseases (diabetes, liver cirrhosis, lung, respiratory, hearing & vision disorders). The clinic can also help with chronic fatigue and burn-out syndrome.
The center has outpatient facilities which focus on anti-aging, immunotherapy, and regenerative medicine. The anti-aging clinic offers a modern approach to rejuvenation, dermatology, detox, and wellness. Results include a younger appearance, increased energy, improved mental capacity & mobility, reduced aches and pain, and an improved immune system.
The high level of traditional medicine and the unique protocols designed by the IH+ teams give patients real therapeutic benefits and longevity.
Paul Collier says a client usually takes two sessions of stem cell injections during a treatment – intravenous for systemic and locally to the target and they are asked to stay in Bangkok for two days after their treatment to monitor any adversity that may occur after a procedure is performed. Then they are given a two-month take-home kit that includes self-administered injections (like insulin), which target specific growth factors relating to organs or tissues that need repairing. These can also be administered orally but are not as effective.
He explains that stem cells are like the building blocks of the human body. At the beginning of our lives, they divide over and over again to create us from an embryo. During your lifetime, they replenish cells in your blood, bone, skin, and organs to keep you alive and functioning. Stem cells hold two main characteristics which stand them out from other cell types in our bodies.
First, they have the ability to self-renew (perform mitosis), this is a part of the cell cycle when replicated chromosomes are separated into two new nuclei. This gives rise to identical replicated cells.
Secondly, they have the ability to differentiate into specialized cells such as cartilage, heart cells, liver cells, and neurons. No other cell in the body has the natural ability to generate new cell types.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are at the core of StemCells21’s regenerative programs. They are multipotent stem cells derived from various adult and fetal tissues. A large number of studies have shown the beneficial effects of MSC-based therapies to treat different pathologies, including neurological disorders, cardiac ischemia, diabetes, and bone and cartilage diseases.
StemCells21 has arthritis treatment, which reduces inflammation & joint pain, increases cartilage growth, improves mobility & joint stability, and lessens dependence on medication. The clinic’s degenerative spine treatments help discs regenerate and stabilize the spine.
It also provides lung & liver disease treatment as well as treatments for autism, cerebral palsy, diabetes, motor neuron disease, multiple sclerosis, and immune disorders.
There’s even eye treatment, which reduces blurred vision & field of vision defects, improves night vision & enhances color texture.
SC21 can even help with certain types of cancer by taking a client’s blood and growing their natural killer cells (immunotherapy) over a 21-day period. , Through various stimuli, their cytoxicity is increased which kills cancer and virally-affected cells.
Paul says stem cell therapy should be looked at before undergoing any kind of invasive surgery. “The type of medicine should certainly be an intervention before surgery. If you are looking at knee replacement, why not consider an injection of a biologic that would only take a couple of days and has the potential to remodel the cartilage, because once you perform surgery there is no going back.”
SC21 also produces a wide range of stem-cell extract-based cosmetics and nutritional supplements, which are available at their medical centers and online under the brand SC21 Biotech.
Paul Collier and his staff will display at the Thailand International Boat Show. They will be on hand to answer all your questions regarding price, procedure, and treatment. They will also help educate you and manage your expectations so that you don’t actually expect more than stem cell treatment can deliver. They’ll also give a detailed report on all procedures if you do go for treatment. SC21 is fully compliant with international regulations and guidelines.
