Stem Cell Therapy for Liver Failure and Cirrhosis in Malaysia 2020

Stem cell therapy for liver failure in Malaysia is an ongoing topic of research and is considered experimental by the medical community. Patients can find fee-for-service clinics that advertise stem cell therapy for liver failure and liver cirrhosis, but most of these clinics promote their own approach, which creates a lot of confusion among patients about how to compare their treatment options.

As of early June 2020, more than 25 studies have been launched to investigate the benefits of stem cell therapy and liver failure. You can review the status of these trials on clinicaltrials.gov.

Liver failure caused by liver cirrhosis, due to various long term liver diseases such as chronic hepatitis B and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease; was thought to be irreversible. A liver transplant is currently the standard treatment to end-stage liver cirrhosis.

However, not every liver failure and liver cirrhosis patients are eligible for a liver transplant in Malaysia. The shortage of matching donors and the high risk of surgical-associated complications further limits the success of a liver transplant.

Since stem cells can be transformed into liver-like cells, the potential of stem cell therapy to treat liver failure and liver cirrhosis has been studied as an interesting new feasible option.

A review of 37 studies (Int Journal of Stem Cell Res and Ther. 2017) by Malaysian researchers found that both autologous and allogeneic adult stem cell-based therapies have shown promising results in restoring liver function in cirrhosis patients.

Cautionary Remarks 

Stem cell therapy for liver failure is a new and is under on-going research. When a clinic gives you promises that you will see gains, and/or claims that the same stem cell therapy can cure everything, run! In real medicine, results are not guaranteed and there are no cure-alls. Be wary of advice from people who have “done their research” by watching YouTube videos. Real research is published in peer-reviewed journals, and you can search the journals via PubMed or Google Scholar.
