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.

Email Updates from Dani Smith’s Mum (Spina Bifida)

NCIMWhat follows below are 2 emails* sent to Nova Cell Institute’s Grace Odgers, Ph.D. cand., by the mother of Danielle “Dani” Smith, a little girl with spina bifida who has been the subject of 2 prior blog entries on this website:

Many “giant steps” for Dani

“Dani Smith Walks” – You Tube Video update

 

 

 

Date: Sun, May 8, 2016 at 7:27 AM Subject: Danielle Smith To: Grace Odgers <gracepatients@gmail.com>

Hi Grace,    Danielle had such incredible gains after her treatment with you, it was the most productive of the four stem cell treatments.  Dani gained internal feeling in her torso, feeling in her lower back, feeling in her entire right leg ( it was sporadic before), and hot and cold on her feet

I hope that you are continuing to do your miracle work and enjoying life!

Love,

Cindy

 

From: C Smith Date: Fri, May 13, 2016 at 6:01 PM Subject: RE: Danielle Smith To: Grace Odgers <gracepatients@gmail.com>

Hi Grace,   Danielle did have some quick sensations also.  On the flight home her right knee was itching for the first time.  My cell phone is 815-xxx-xxxx and you can share it. (READERS SHOULD CALL OR EMAIL NOVA CELLS INSTITUTE-MEXICO TO GET CINDY’S CELL PHONE #)

Wharton’s Jelly Stem Cells: safety & more

stem cells from poweredtemplatesADVANTAGES OF WHARTON’S JELLY STEM CELLS ESPECIALLY MESENCYMALS (Designated as WJ-MSC for convenience below) ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO SAFETY

 

 

WJ HAS MORE STEM CELLS THAN EITHER BONE MARROW OR ADIPOSE TISSUE

The quantity of mesenchymal stem cells which can typically be obtained from bone marrow is far less than that Wharton’s Jelly: 0.001 to 0.01% mononuclear cells from BM, with 1 g of adipose tissue yielding ~ 5 × 103 stem cells, and Wharton’s jelly 1 to 5 × 104 cells/cm of umbilical cord. In side-by-side comparison studies of MSC from bone marrow adipose tissue and Wharton’s jelly, WJ-MSCs had the highest proliferative capacity.

WJ STEM CELLS ARE MORE PRIMITIVE THAN OTHER ADULT STEM CELL TYPES YET DO NOT PRODUCE TUMORS AND ACTUALLY HAVE ANTI-TUMOR EFFECTS IN VITRO (Lab dish) AND IN VIVO (In living animals & humans)  

WJ-MSC differ from other adult MSCs with respect to the fact they demonstrate far more primitive characteristics e.g., they express embryonic-like stem cell markers including  pluripotency genes, Oct-4, Nanog, and SOX-2 but at levels well below that of embryonic stem (ESC) cells. Despite this, WJ-MSCs do not form tumors (teratomas). This is attributed to the fact that WJ-MS’s have a lower expression of pluripotency genes than embryonic stem cells (ESCs being very pluripotent and by virtue of this are prone to develop teratomas when injected into animals or humans). When WJ-MSCs were injected in immunocompromised and immunodeficient animals they still failed to form tumors.

Also: WJ-MSCs express low levels of the embryonic stem cell pluripotency markers POUF1, NANOG, SOX2 and LIN28, which also plays a role in the fact they do not produce teratomas. WJ-MSCs also synthesize and express several cytokines including IL12A which is associated with the induction of apoptosis (programmed cell death) which is believed to underlie their ability to lyse (eradicate) tumor cells.

Furthermore, the transcriptome of WJ-MSC and ESC differs substantially in that WJ-MSCs demonstrate high expression levels of several tumor suppressor genes and suppresses tumors both in vitro and in vivo. Moreover, large quantities of tumor growth inhibiting cytokines and growth factors are secreted by WJ-MSCs. Also, WJ-MSC cell lysates as well as the conditioned medium they are cultured in strongly inhibited the growth of breast adenocarcinoma, ovarian carcinoma, osteosarcoma, benign neoplastic keloid cells, bladder tumor, and lymphoma cells  in vitro. When WJ-MSC cell lysates and conditioned medium were injected into mammary carcinoma, osteosarcoma, and pancreatic and lung tumors it inhibited their growth and shrank the tumors in vivo .

WJ-MSCs DO NOT CAUSE IMMUNE REJECTION OR ADVERSE REACTIONS  

WJ-MSCs have also been found to be immunoprivileged which is to say they escape rejection or adverse immune reactions. Part of the reason for this lies in the fact WJ-MSCs have low MHC-I levels and an absence of MHC-II expression. And, though they synthesize low amounts of MHC class I, WJ-MSCs have no immunogenicity. Research indicates that this is due to the fact they  do not express costimulatory molecules such as CD 40, CD80, CD86, and also produce high levels of immune response inhibitors such as indoleamine-2,3-dioxygenase (IDO), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and leukocyte antigen G6 (HLA-G6).

Improvements coming out of the gate for Evie Morgan (3 year old little girl with Spina bifida)

Three year old Evie Morgan has spina bifida and a Facebook page devoted to her journey to betterment at https://www.facebook.com/evieswarriors/. She was treated in Mexico by Nova Cells Institute doctors during April (2016) and soon her Mum, Heather, was emailing NCIM patient care coordinator, Grace Odgers PhD cand., a series of positive reports and video clips.  Heather also made posts to the aforementioned Facebook page — three of which follow further down below.

On 4-27-16 Heather Morgan sent this email message to NCIM’s Grace Odgers, PhD cand.:

We felt very comfortable in the hospital. The room was very clean and had a private bathroom and sink. The pediatrician, Dr. Sanchez, was amazing and Evie loved her so much. Dr. Sanchez spoke great English and we had no trouble understanding her at all. The nurses were very attentive to whatever it was that Evie needed and Grace was always right there to translate for us if they had questions or we wanted to say something. The procedure was quick and painless. Within 5 minutes of receiving the treatment Evie began moving her toes. In the week and a half since treatment Evie is still able to move her toes on command (prior to treatment Evie only had very little involuntary movement of her toes), she is urinating more on her own and has very increased balance. She is now beginning to walk much longer distances with her canes (before she had a walker). At her next urology appointment we are going to be able to start discussing next steps in seeing how her bladder can fully function without medication. We are very pleased with the results we have seen thus far and can’t wait to see what else Evie is going to do!

This video was taken 2 days after stem cells. Evie is now able to move her toes on command! Before it was completely involuntary movement. Pardon her sassiness at the beginning 😂 Evie also has incredibly improved balance and is able to walk much longer distances with her canes! ‪#‎evieswarriors‬

Evie is showing improvements in her bladder function and abilities since yesterday. We aren’t sure if this is going to be a consistent thing but we are definitely watching now. This is nuts.

Sorry for lack of updates. Everything went perfectly and the treatment is now complete. Within minutes Evie was flexing her right ankle when asked and wiggling all 5 toes. Some of the movement is involuntary right now as the cells are being repaired. We will continue to see results for a few months. Thank you all for supporting our girl! ‪#‎evieswarriors‬
