Stem cell homing drug announced by Sanford Burnham Presby Discovery Institute – 5 years after NCIM introduced its own stem cell homing “Beacon Factor”

In a Science Digest article published on 11-24-2020 and titled “World’s first: Drug guides stem cells to desired location, improving their ability to heal” the SD staff writer states that the “..Scientists at Sanford Burnham Presby Medical Discovery Institute have created a drug that can lure stem cells to damaged tissue and improve treatment efficacy — a scientific first and major advance for the field of regenerative medicine.”

Maybe this is a “scientific first” for Sanford Burnham Presby Medical Discovery Institute but not for Nova Cells Institute of Mexico (NCIM) which introduced a stem cell homing compound it created back in 2015! Dubbed the “Beacon Factor” you can read about it here and in a July 2015 blog entry here.

NCIM introduced its stem cell homing “Beacon Factor” in 2015. Sanford Burnham Presby Medical Discovery Institute announced their stem cell homing creation this year, 2020. five years after NCIM. Five years. Better late than never comes to mind. This and “such hubris”….. to call SBPDI’s latecomer a “scientific first” , that is.

Pandemic impact: costs for everything going up BUT NOT AT NCIM

The Covid-19 pandemic definitely impacted travel into and out of Mexico which kept many sick & ailing people from being able to get to NCIM’s hospital for treatment. This has begun to ease up as scientifically validated prevention & detection measures have become widely available (including over-the-counter ones) and MDs across the world have zeroed in on drugs & therapies that keep Covid-19 infected people from landing in ICU or worse. Once approved vaccines go into widespread use in the US, Canada, Mexico, in the EU and beyond, it is expected that international travel will loosen up even more.

What probably will not change quickly is the pandemic-fueled economic downturn in most nations. Many experts expected housing prices and some aspects of medical care to go down but it has not. In fact, In the US these have gone up. With so many people across the world paying more for…well….just about everything under the sun, NCIM has not only been able to maintain its pre-pandemic pricing structure but also to get generous patrons to help reduce the cost of treatment for some patients.

Quick read – NCIM Program

Abel working in biocabinetNova Cells Institute of Mexico contracted MDs treat children and adults with umbilical cord blood stem cells and in some instances a patient’s own bone marrow stem cells. MDs who work with Nova Cells also administer its proprietary “Beacon Factor“, a nontoxic compound that greatly enhances stem cell homing, improves circulation, reduces inflammation, improves nerve signal transmission, and steps up the processing of intracellular “junk” by lysosomes (The cells “garbage disposal” system whose malfunctioning is linked to all kinds of neurodegenerative diseases and conditions).

Nova Cells uses only certifiably disease free umbilical cord stem cells and those from Wharton’s Jelly, and sometimes a patient’s own bone marrow stem cells, all of which are processed in Mexico in a state-of-the-art laboratory run by our firm’s director of laboratory services, Dr. Abel Pena (Photo above).

Dr. Pena, who is a biochemist, was trained by a leading US stem cell biologist and maintains the highest levels of safety and hygiene in his lab in Tijuana. In addition, he has pioneered numerous methods for priming stem cells; that is, getting them to respond to chemical signals in target tissues by becoming cells that tend to effect or support healing or relief. Stem cells primed using his methods have produced impressive, sometimes remarkable clinical responses in people with a wide variety of neurologic & other diseases and conditions.

Read this before you settle on a stem cell or other treatment or therapy in Mexico or elsewhere

E-MAIL Free MS imageNova Cells Institute (NCIM) often gets emails from people who ask about stem cell and other therapies done elsewhere but which have little chance of turning things around for them. Here are some of these treatments along with comments by NCIM experts:

(1) Subcutaneous injections of stem cells to treat serious neurologic and other health challenges, including cancer. COMMENT: Subcutaneously injected stem cells may stimulate production of nerve growth factor or other compounds, but is an iffy way to stimulate healing or regeneration unless one is treating a problem very close to the injection site. Depending on the target tissue or organ, stem cells given by intravenous, intrathecal or other routes is more likely to have the desired therapeutic effect.

(2)  Nova Cells hears from people who have been told that biochemical signals from injured or diseased tissues will attract infused stem cells. This is true but what they aren’t being told is that these signals fade over time or the injected or infuse stem cells typically do not respond fully to them. COMMENT: Nova Cells director of laboratory services, Dr. Abel Pena, created a nontoxic homing/signal amplification (or “beacon”) compound that stimulates damaged or diseased tissues to send out stronger stem cell attractive signals while simultaneously sensitizing stem cells to recognize and respond to these signals. This compound was dubbed, appropriately enough, the “Beacon Factor” and positively no one has it or anything like it but Nova Cells. You can read more about it by clicking this link.

3) Emails occasionally come in from people saying they have been offered some kind of stem cell or other therapy (for a serious or intractable condition) in Mexico or elsewhere for between $1,000-4,000 USD. COMMENT: The old sayings “If it sounds too good to be true, it is” and “caveat emptor” (Buyer beware) certainly applies here. What NCIM has turned up down through the years (with respect to these “medical blue plate specials”) are instances in which: (a) MDs and others gave patients far fewer cells than claimed. In one particular instance, an office worker in a so-called stem cell clinic reported actually seeing a doctor take a vial labelled as containing 5 million umbilical cord stem cells and placing a small quantity from this into each of ten other vials, then administering these to patients who had paid to get 5 million stem cells each; (b) Patients were given “live cell therapy” (embryonic cells from animals typically lambs) but were told  they were getting human umbilical or other adult stem cells: (c) People with advanced, terminal cancer were given low cost treatments that had worked in lab dish or animal studies but bombed out in well designed & executed studies done in humans.

Doing medicine in Mexico is not cheap contrary to what some people think. Unfortunately, there are unscrupulous doctors and clinics that have come up with “cost cutting measures” (like those above) who do a grave disservice to the patients they purport to help.

Abel at lab cabinetNova Cells is able to offer economically priced care, i.e., typically 30% less than other stem cell medicine operations, because it cut out the “middle men”, e.g., professional marketers and public relations people, and was able to get top flight MDs including surgeons on board who believe profits must take a backseat to getting people well. And, its head of laboratory services, Dr. Abel Pena (photo on right), who was trained (in part) by a leading US stem cell biologist, insists on processing & counting all stem cells himself and then priming or programming them (to become cell types that are more likely to effect healing or restoration in a given patient than unprimed stem cells). Dr. Pena personally handles all aspects of stem cell and Beacon Factor processing so as to insure that everything is done to the highest cGMP (manufacturing) standards and the patient is getting exactly what he or she paid for.
