Mesenchymal Stem Cells Malaysia | Find a Clinic for Mesenchymal Stem Cell Treatment in Malaysia

Clinical studies using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) yield positive outcome in treating global pandemic, Covid-19. Critically ill patients showed reduction in lung inflammation and significant improvement in their respiratory system with the administration of mesenchymal stem cells.

What are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?

There are mainly two types of naturally occuring stem cells found in a human body, Hematopoietic Stem Cells and Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). Hematopoietic stem cells are found in cord blood, bone marrow and peripheral blood. MSCs are found in Wharton's jelly (refer to image below), bone marrow, fat tissue and tooth pulp.

There was 178 registered clinical trials and 98 publications about cell therapy that employ Umbilical Cord derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells (UC-MSC), for the years 2007–2017 (Regenerative Medicine, 2019).

Sources of Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Umbilical Cord




The umbilical cord itself is a rich source of stem cells, where its Wharton’s Jelly holds precious Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs). These stem cells have been found to be very promising as it has beneficial properties that Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs) may have restrictions in. MSCs have the ability to differentiate into bone, heart, nerve, cornea, fat and cartilage cells, and has been used for repairs of these organs. MSCs can also be used to treat GVHD after stem cell transplant. In the lab, it can be used to expand HSCs to make umbilical cord blood stem cells transplant available even to adults. Besides, MSCs also improve engraftment of HSCs when used together.


Bone Marrow




The bone marrow has been identified as one of the best sources of harvesting stem cells from adults, through Bone Marrow Aspiration (BMA). The BMA process is a low-risk, invasive procedure usually performed on the back of the hip bone. MSCs that reside in the spongy bone are extracted from the bone marrow, where the half-day procedure leaves a very small, negligible scar on the back. The MSCs are then brought back to the laboratory to be processed and expanded.


Adipose Tissue




It has been found that adipose tissue (fat tissue) contains MSCs. These MSCs are ideally harvested during liposuction, where instead of discarding the fat collected, the fat is brought back to the laboratory for MSCs isolation and expansion. Although the adipose-derived MSCs are currently investigated to treat a multitude of diseases, they are particularly suited for cosmetic indications.

Tooth Pulp




Tooth-derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells, also known as dental pulp stem cells, can be found in the pulp tissue within a tooth. Pulp tissues can be retrieved from extracted teeth collected via your arranged wisdom tooth removals via orthodontic surgeries and also from naturally fallen teeth, where they are usually discarded as wastes, to store for future use. It offers simple, safe, and affordable with multiple opportunities to collect stem cells from children and adults when other alternatives are lacking.
