Four important points about Nova Cells Institute

cropped-nova-cells-bannerNova 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).

Jane from the “Show Me” State of Missouri – Older lady with Parkinson’s disease & Lewy Body Dementia

MRI OF BRAIN - FREE MORGUEFILENote by Nova Cell’s patient educator & care facilitator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D. cand., concerning Jane at the time she was picked up for transport to Mexico plus a brief summary of what took place after her Beacon Factor & stem cell treatments:

Jane arrived seated in a wheelchair with both hands and arms shaking, the left more so than the right. I knew from her history that she was no longer able to walk without assistance. Her son and her partner kind of lift and drag her from her wheelchair to other seating. She is incontinent and thus uses adult Pampers. Very thin ones. She came to treatment accompanied by her live-in partner and her son, both of whom are named Paul. She is given to having occasional hallucinations and is not aware of what is going on around her.

Jane was given large doses of the Beacon Factor by IV drip the first day in hospital. At night she asked to be helped to the restroom. Her partner and son helped her though she walked to the bathroom, and was not dragged.

The day after her stem cell infusion by both spinal tap and IV, Jane became more alert and began looking at her partner and son directly and was conversing with them. She didn’t say a whole lot but she was definitely more aware of everything and everyone around her. She even said “What is going on?”

Notes made by Jane’s son Paul and sent to NCIM:

Jan 20, 2016

1 pm PST, drove down from San Diego to TJ by biochemist Dr.  Abel Pena and Grace Odgers.

Checked into the hospital

3 pm PST: She ate some soup with lime Jell-O.

4 pm PST: The doctors put in an IV and began a saline drip. Mom took her usual medication.

5 pm PST: The doctor added the first dose of “The Beacon Factor”. We ordered dinner, tuna fish sandwiches, mixed fruit with bananas, mango and apples, some apple juice and water.

Mom seem to perk up while eating a lot, offering food to her partner and I while discussing how good she felt.

Tested her memory several times, which was still spotty, but she seemed concerned that she was “failing”.  Noticed that she had her eyes wide open and answered questions quickly, even though sometimes she didn’t make a lot of sense.  We both noticed she had more coherent thought processes and conversation.

7 pm PST: Mom took her final medication of the day.

Jan 21, 2016

6:30 am PST: Arrived back at the hospital. Mom was a bit frantic.

Really need an interpreter the whole time.

Changed bedding and dressings.

7:00 am PST: Mom was given her morning meds.

Took Mom to the restroom.

9:00 am PST: Mom seemed much more lucid, looking around.  Finally started to fall back to sleep after eating.

Changed bedding again and her dressings.

She slept until 11:30 am

1 pm PST: Anesthesiologist arrived and introduced himself and the fact he would be giving her a local in her back for the spinal puncture stem cell injection procedure.

2pm – 3pm PST: Talked with Mom who sat up on her own a lot, looked around a great deal, though she was still hallucinating and engaged in some nonsensical talk. Observed what was going on, and looked forward to going home.  During conversations she started in with “Come here doggie” and “There’s an old woman, really old, scary, staring at me”

Mom’s facial expressions became much more expressive. She was picking her lips and began folding her blankets and fidgeting a lot.

3 pm PST: The MD arrived to check her blood pressure, heart and blood oxygen level.

3:30 pm PST: Still waiting for them to take her in for her infusion.

She’s asking lots of questions and thinking very clearly after all the “Beacon Factor”.

4:00 pm PST: Mom left to go get stem cells.

5:20 pm PST: Mom was returned to the room, still very groggy from the anesthesia but doing well.

6:00 pm PST: Mom exhibited nearly normal behaviors (for her) of obsessing, and mumbling, but without leaning over as she usually did.  More eye movement and she was more concerned over recent events.

8:00 pm PST: Final dose of regular medicines for the day, after which she quickly became very groggy and tired.

9:00 pm PST: Returned to hotel room

Friday Jan 22, 2016

Returned home to Missouri after a day of travel.

Noticed several things, including obsessive behavior though not as extreme. Mom could be easily instructed to lean back, and she looked through the pages of magazines without tearing up the pages as she’d done in the past.  During changing, she lifted herself up as instructed.  Much more focus than before and she kept up conversations on current topics longer than had been true previously.

 

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.
