Nova Cells Institute has never worked with embryonic or fetal stem cells, and never will. Embryonic and fetal stem cells can produce tumors (These are classified as pluripotent” which means they can form teratomas and other tumors in certain instances such as being injected into the central nervous system). The adult stem cells Nova Cells uses (umbilical cord, Wharton’s Jelly, placenta-derived, and a patient’s own bone marrow) are “multipotent” which limits the body cell types they can become (These stem cells do not form teratomas or such. Some private stem cell clinics in Europe and the US have injected adult stem cells into organs such as kidneys and eyes which caused problems and complications. Nova Cells Institute has never injected stem cells into an organ). Let’s be very clear about these points and a few others:
(1) Nova Cells was established in 2009. There are other companies that came along later on which use “Nova” in their company title, but these are NOT affiliated in any way with Nova Cells Institute of Mexico (NCIM).
(2) Nova Cells Institute has never used embryonic or fetal stem cells and never will (They can form tumors under certain circumstances).
(3) Nova Cells Institute only uses multipotent adult stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood, Wharton’s Jelly, placental tissue, and a patient’s own bone marrow.
(4) Nova Cells Institute administers stem cells by intravenous drip (On rare occasions Nova Cells affiliated doctors recommend an intrathecal or spinal tap infusion of cells. Everything related to this is spelled out, a process called “informed consent”. Patients who prefer not to do this are given cells by intravenous or IV drip).
Nova Cells Institute has been treating spina bifida in infants and children for over five years now using a combination of laboratory primed umbilical cord stem cells and its proprietary “Beacon Factor“. The results it has documented and reported attests to the power of its treatment approach.
During August one of Nova Cell’s MDs discovered to his own chagrin that his diabetic spawned neuropathy had progressed to the point he could no longer feel his own feet! He then did a single intravenous treatment with primed umbilical cord stem cells and the “Beacon Factor”. Within a week all sensation had returned to his feet and all other neuropathy symptoms were gone.
