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 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 .

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.

You’ve got to get stem cells to their target tissue or organ. No one but Nova Cells has a way to reliably pull this off.

DART BOARD - Free MorguefileIf you ever played the game of darts or used a crossbow you know the goal is to hit your target. In the world of stem cell medicine the same holds true. Virtually all stem cell therapy clinics and hospitals infuse or inject stem cells and count on biochemical signals produced by damaged or diseased tissues to “get the darts” (stem cells) to target. This works in principle, yes, but likely winds up with more stem cells lodged in non-target tissues than in the tissues or organ needing healing or restoration. This diminishes responses and outcomes as you would expect.

But what if you switch on a homing system in the stem cells and amplify the signals in diseased or damaged tissues or organs? More “darts” or “biologic missiles” (stem cells) will hit their mark!

No stem cell clinic or such anywhere has a biologic “guidance & homing signal amplification system” that helps get stem cells to target. None, that is, but Nova Cells Institute which pulls this off thanks to its proprietary Beacon Factor. You can read more about the Beacon Factor by clicking this link.

Arthritis & vertigo turnaround in 85 year old lady from Nevada (USA)

Senior Couple At HomeIn later 2014 eight-five (85) year old Patricia Rodriguez went to Mexico to have her longstanding arthritis treated by Nova Cells Institute. During her one day stay she was given umbilical cord stem cells that had been primed to become cells that fight arthritis and promote healing and joint restoration, along with the Beacon Factor.

Upon her return stateside, the very next day Patricia noticed a surge of energy and strength upon walking. However, week after week   positive things of all kinds began surfacing. Her  daughter, Tina, summarized these for Nova Cells as follows:

She has incredible strength in comparison to what was true before (her treatment). She can walk all over Walmart and then when we went to a mall near her home she walked the entire length of it not once but twice, and was only a little tired when we got back to her house”, although, I was tired too.

Tina added, “She can get up from the rocking chair without my daughter having to pull her up.  And she can open a can of soda using a finger that could not bear doing this last year”. This was one month after her treatment.

“Also, …and this is the latest thing,…for 48 years Mom had incredibly bad vertigo if she laid on her right side which did not happen when she laid down on her left side. She often said her vertigo was like having the room spin at one hundred miles per hour. Naturally when she slept she made every effort to sleep on her right side. Then last week she woke up on her right side and was absolutely shocked to find she had no vertigo. It has not returned!”

Four months after her treatment she had no arthritis pain, in her hands and right arm, whatsoever.

“Mom was also always afraid of losing her balance. She never fell, but she felt that she might one day do so. She would instinctively grab the rail to go up the stairs in her home and also in mine, and then slowly, cautiously take one step at  a time. She would hold onto the rail and moving up it by taking one step and at the same time moving her left hand over the right hand. She never would let one hand go until she had the other on the rail.”

“Now 5 months after her stem cell treatment she goes up the 15 stair staircase without holding onto anything.”

Killing cancer, not the cancer sufferer (Targeting & defeating cancer while leaving healthy cells unaffected)

On Sunday, December 7 (2014) CBS’s famed 60 Minutes devoted a thirteen-minute segment titled “Disrupting Cancer” to physician and billionaire businessman Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD‘s advocacy and use of the rapid gene sequencing of tumor cells to help zero in specific drugs or other agents that will eradicate them. Later the same day, Forbes’s writer Matthew Herper published an article in which he stated something virtually everyone doing cancer work knows, namely that “Everyone is looking to use DNA sequencing to better pick cancer drugs. And in some ways, Soon-Shiong is an odd person to pick as a spokesperson for this, because he’s just getting started. ” (Here Is What ’60 Minutes’ Didn’t Tell You About The Billionaire Who Is Trying To Disrupt Cancer Care).

This is not to say that with Dr. Soon-Shiong’s deep pockets and an army of computer experts and researchers he will not wind up making major inroads in this area of biomedicine. And with cancer striking so many, progress is welcome whether it comes out of a one-person lab or a research enterprise that fills buildings or is stretched across many continents.

Confident BusinessmanNova Cells is no stranger to finding ways to “disrupt cancer”. It has, in fact, focused on a treatment approach that combines attacking tumors using donor immune cells (from healthy young people) and specific compounds that gum up the inner machinery in cancer cells while leaving healthy cells. It has been a spectacularly successful quest that started with the treatment of a 71-year-old gentleman from the Pacific Northwest who was in the last throes of end-stage prostate cancer that had spread into his liver and bones. He was, in fact, so bad off that NCIM doctors thought he might not live more than a handful of days, at best. But, like so many people struggling with cancer, he was a spirited fighter who simply would not entertain abandoning hope until, as he put it, “I take my last breath”.

This determined chap knew the score going into treatment, namely that he was volunteering to undergo something very experimental in nature. But he was resolutely committed to “fighting the good fight”, even if this pitched battle proved his last. Seeing his determined spirit, the MDs set about stabilizing him to help ensure he could handle the biological blitzkrieg (lightning war) that NCIM’s experimental tumor-killing method was expected to unleash in his body.

Three days later the doctors began daily treatments using cancer-fighting cells (called granulocytes) that had been previously isolated from the blood of many young, healthy volunteers and then combined and infused by intravenous (IV) means. In addition, he was to be given intentionally HLA mismatched umbilical cord stem cells.

If the treatment worked as anticipated, the donor granulocytes would attack the tumors and also send a “wake up call” to the immune system, i.e., alert the fellow’s own immune cells that something alien was present which they would then attack (One problem in cancer is that tumors send out biochemical signals that suppress the sufferer’s own innate tumor-fighting cells). In addition, the HLA mismatched umbilical cord blood stem cells would be attracted by growth factors secreted by the tumors, attach to them, and then be attacked by the patient’s own immune cells which would react to them as a foreign presence.

The outcome? He did had a mild immune reaction (rash) that was easily suppressed using an IV antihistamine. This is how NCIM’s own patient care coordinator summed up what transpired:

“Within three days his face was pinkish and his hands were getting pink. He was eating so well that the staff could not believe it. After the 7th primed donor granulocyte treatment, he was walking 1/2 mile around the hospital, and feeling great. He was feeling so good in fact that he decided to return to his home state of Washington to finish up a million-dollar real estate deal. NCIM doctors and staff protested wanting him to finish the entire course of therapy but he was adamant about getting home but promised to return and complete his care once his real estate deal was completed. This he did. By October his US oncologist reported that his PSA is 1.1, his prostate is smaller than a normal 20-year-olds, and he could find no cancer at all. Also, his Alkaline Phosphatase level which was about 2,000 during his treatment had dropped to something around 89.”

This fellow remains in full remission to this day.

Following this exciting clinical success, other end-stage cancer patients were treated (prostate, breast, lung, others) using the same method. Fifty percent (50%) experienced tumor shrinkage (partial remission) while the rest (50%) went into full remission.

In addition, other cancer-fighting measures were tested both alone and in combination with the donor granulocytes & cord blood stem cells (Gr-UCSC). Those that resulted in tumor shrinkage or obliteration when used alone, as well as those that bolstered the anti-cancer impact of the Gr-UCSCs, were retained.

Among these were two chemical compounds that throw a monkey wrench into the tiny power-generating factories (mitochondria) in tumor cells but do not adversely affect normal cells. They are, in technical parlance Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD, selective for malignant cells.

NCIM also selectively utilizes a unique injectable protein that amplifies the cancer-fighting activity of a patient’s own macrophages.

Returning now to that 60 Minutes segment: Dr. Soon-Shiong beamed about tackling cancer at an immunological level. Nova Cells doctors and staff wish him well in this quest, but can’t help adding that in many ways we left the starting gate years ago and are “already there” (That is, have made demonstrable progress and enjoyed great success).

Many “giant steps” for Dani

NCIM N SIGN - JULY  2013Danielle “Dani” Smith was born in September 2006 with spina bifida in which her spinal cord did not completely form and resulted in partial paralysis from the waist down (Myelomeningocele). Since then this brave little girl has had five major operations including one to place her spinal cord back in her body, three brain surgeries, and double eye surgery. She then did two stem cell treatments and has undergone lots of physical therapy. And, during June 2013 she was treated in Mexico by Nova Cells using primed stem cells and its Beacon Factor. This treatment and Dani’s responses are reflected in this news release from October 2013: http://www.24-7pressrelease.com/pdf/2013/10/05/press_release_364003.pdf

Dani has made many gains during the year since that news release was published including, most recently, something captured by her mother in a short video. This clip was inserted in an animated video which can be accessed by going to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUBvyFt0Vm4#t=109 or click the screen image below,
