Objective: Numerous investigations suggest that Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) in general represent a
valuable tool for therapy of symptoms related to chronic inflammatory diseases. Blue Horizon Stem Cell Therapy
Program is a leading provider of adult and children’s stem cell therapies. Uniquely we have safely and efficiently
treated over 600 patients with documenting each procedure.
Methods: The purpose of our study is primarily to monitor the immune response in order to validate the safety of
intravenous infusion of human umbilical cord blood derived MSCs (UC-MSCs), and secondly, to evaluate effects on
biomarkers associated with chronic inflammation. Twenty patients were treated for conditions associated with chronic
inflammation and for the purpose of anti-aging. They have been given one intravenous infusion of UC-MSCs.
Results: Our study of blood test markers of 20 patients with chronic inflammation before and within three months
after MSCs treatment demonstrates that there are no significant changes and MSCs treatment was safe for the
patients. Analysis of different indicators of chronic inflammation and aging included in initial, 24-hours, two weeks and
three months protocols showed that stem cell treatment was safe for the patients; there were no adverse reactions.
Moreover, data from follow-up protocols demonstrate significant improvement in energy level, hair, nail growth and
Conclusion: Intravenously administered UC-MSCs were safe and effective in the improvement of symptoms
related to chronic inflammation. Further close monitoring and inclusion of more patients are necessary to fully
characterize the advantages of UC-MSCs application in treatment of symptoms related to chronic inflammation.
