Stem Cell Treatment for Parkinson’s
With great joy, we have had our first patient return from China, who just completed a stem cell therapy for Parkinson’s Disease. Before leaving, we made sure that his body was as healthy as possible, by following a strict nutritional protocol, performed a chelation and detox therapy, ensuring the best possible health on a cellular level. The Chinese specialist were impressed with how the patient reacted to their treatment, his blood works was perfect and he even had no pain from the repeated injections of stem cells via lumbar punctures. “We provided him with a natural anti-inflammatory, which he did use prior the procedure.”
4 weeks after the start of the stem cell treatment, we have noticed great improvement in facial expressions, speech and posture. The physical strength is starting to return into the affected arm and opening a screw type bottle is now as easy as it was in the past. Tremors have reduced and we are expecting to see more positive results in the coming month.
Over the next 3 to 6 month, ongoing specific nutritional and herbal support will be provided, as we are trying to maintain the best possible terrain on a cellular level.
One should consider that once stem cells have been introduced and if the best biological conditions are not provided on a cellular level, success may be minimised.
The treatment provided by the Chinese Doctors and Staff of the Beijing Tiantan Puhan International Hospital can only be praised and highly recommended. Comparing it with any current American, Mexican or Russian Hospitals, I would assure anybody that this hospital with more then 10 years of practical experience would be the world leaders in this type of stem cell procedure!
The hospital provides stem cell treatments for the following conditions:
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Batten disease
- Brain infection injury
- Cerebral palsy (CP)
- Corticobasal degeneration (CBD)
- Devic’s syndrome or disease

Therapies available at Puhua
Radiofrequency ablation uses heat created by radio waves to kill cancer cells. By utilizing Ultrasound and CT technology, we are able to insert a probe directly into the core of the cancer site. The area is then heated and once it exceeds 60℃, a systematic breakdown of proteins occurs ultimately destroying the cancer.
Cryosurgical Ablation (CSA)
Using imaging guided techniques (Ultrasound, CT or MRI), cryo-probes are inserted into a tumor to rapidly freeze (up to -160℃) and thaw it ( 20 to 40℃). This process is repeated two or three times, resulting in complete ablation of the tumor.
CSA has the following advantages:
• It is applicable to both small and large tumors. It can be used for ablation of single or multiple tumors.
- Cryosurgical ablation will not cause damage to large blood vessels or the trachea, so it can be used to treat tumors near those areas.
- It is a painless procedure, beneficial in reducing tumor pain.
- The whole process of cryosurgical ablation can be monitored and controlled through imaging techniques such as Ultrasound, CT or MRI.
- After CSA destroys cancerous cells, necrotic cancer tissue releases antigens which stimulate the immune system to eliminate any remaining cancerous cells, thus reducing the re-occurrence of the cancer.
Cancer Microvascular Intervention (CMI)
By inserting a catheter into target arteries and injecting an embolic agent and /or chemotherapeutic agents or Traditional Chinese Medicines, arterial occlusion occurs, dramatically reducing the blood supply to the cancer cells, leading to ischemic necrosis and destruction of tumor tissue.
It is also known as Irreversible Electroporation (IRE). IRE is a minimally invasive treatment option for patients with inoperable or difficult to reach tumors. It is especially useful in treating tumors of solid organs such as pancreas, liver, lung, kidney and prostate. IRE uses short, repetitive, non-thermal, high-energy pulses of electricity to destroy the lipid bilayer of cancer cell membranes, creating numerous irreversible nano-sized pores in the cell membrane thus leading to a destruction of cellular homeostasis and to the death of the cancer cells.
These pulses of electricity destroy the tumor leaving the surrounding tissue, veins, nerves and ducts unaffected, allowing healthy cells to regenerate the affected area more effectively. This positively makes this technique very suitable for treating tumors adjacent to the pancreas, hepatic hilar region, gallbladder, bile duct and ureters.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
(also known as photo-chemotherapy), is a form of phototherapy using nontoxic light-sensitive compounds that are exposed to a specific wavelength of light, whereupon they become activated and toxic to targeted tissues. PDT has been proven to kill bacteria, fungi and viruses and is successfully applied in the treatment of acne. Further uses extend to a wide range of medical conditions, including wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and malignant cancers. It is recognized as an effective treatment strategy that is both minimally invasive and minimally toxic.
Immunotherapy (DC-CIK therapy)
Cytokine-Induced Killer Cells (CIK) are cytotoxic T Cells that can seek and kill tumor cells. The number of CIK cells existing in our body is very small and insufficient in the fight against cancer. In CIK therapy, CIK cells are isolated, amplified by at least 1,000 times and then re-infused back into the patient’s body.
The THERMOTRON RF-8 is the latest hyperthermia system, developed in Japan. It uses electromagnetic waves which are generated between parallel-opposed circular electrodes, to selectively heat up tumour tissues in the body. THERMOTRON RF-8 offers an advantage over other Hyperthermia Systems, as it’s breakthrough technology has the ability to uniformly heat up even deep seated tumours. Once the temperature reaches 42.5 ℃ in a tumor cell and lasts longer than 30 minutes, protein and structural damage occurs within these cells, leading to their destruction with minimal damage to healthy tissue! While it reduces tumor volume and relieves pain, it can also prevent the recurrence of cancer and even enhance the effects of other selected therapies.
This is a revolutionary new type of immune therapy that wakes up the body’s own defensive mechanism to destroy tumor cells, utilizing its own T cells. T cells continuously check the body for any signs of cancer. When a T cell recognizes a tumor antigen on a tumor cell, the T cells become activated and tries to eliminate the tumor cell. When a T cell becomes activated, it also requires a stop signal in order to make sure the immune system does not get over stimulated. This is achieved by through inhibitory receptors, such as PD-1. After activation, T cells increase the expression of PD-1 on their surface, allowing them to receive a shutdown signal, namely the two ligands PD-L1 and PD-L2. Tumor cells have taken advantage of this system as PD-L1 is highly expressed in many types of cancers and as such utilize it to prematurely shut down the attacking T cells. With the invention of drug agents that block this signal, the T cells are no longer misled by PD-L1 and PD-L2 and rally an immune system attack on the cancer; resulting in a significant destruction of many different types of cancers.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
TCM is a safe and effective supportive treatment option used in conjunction with other modalities. Many Chinese herbs have strong immune-enhancing properties and can enhance
the effects of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery and other modalities while reducing
toxicity and side-effects. TCM herbs are administered orally, by IV or are injected directly into the tumor with the help of DSA (digital subtraction angiography) guidance.

Introduction of our Stem Cell Treatment
Beijing Puhua International hospital uses the newest breakthroughs to provide effective and safe stem cell treatments to a wide range of neurological and physical disorders. We use the latest knowledge of stem cells behavior in the human body within an individually tailored medical plan according to the patient’s condition. Using stem cell transplantation, intensive physiotherapy and medicines, this combination of therapies has so far proved itself to be most efficient in bringing a high level of recovery to our patients.
What are stem cells?
What are stem cells? Stem cells are the master cells of the human body. What define stem cells from other cells is their ability to self-generate themselves and the ability to differentiate into other cell types. Stem cells are at the center of a new field of science called regenerative medicine. All stem cells, regardless of their source, have three general properties: they are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods; they are unspecialized; and they can give rise to specialized cell types. Self-regeneration is the ability of stem cells to divide and produce more stem cells. During early development, the cell division is symmetrical i.e. each cell divides to gives rise to daughter cells each with the same potential. Later in development, the cell divides asymmetrically with one of the daughter cells produced, also a stem cell and the other a more differentiated cell (such as brain cell, blood cell, etc.). When stem cells are being transplanted into the body and arrive (through migration or through direct injection) into injured part of the brain being targeted for tissue regeneration, the stem cells are come into contact with microenvironment in the body, where the stem cells can settle into the tissue surrounding them.
Stem cells can typically be broken into four types:
Embryonic stem cells – Stem cells taken from human embryos
Fetal stem cells– Stem cells taken from aborted fetal tissue
Umbilical stem cells – Stem cells take from umbilical cords
Adult stem cells – Stem cells taken from adult tissue
At Tiantan Puhua hospital 7 main types of stem cells are being used:
1. Human fetal Neural Stem Cells (hNSC);
2. Human bone Marrow-derived mesenchymal Stem cells (hBM-MSC);
3. Human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUCMSC);
4. Human retinal pigment epithelial cells (hRPE):
5. Human insulin producing cells (hIPC, unipotent), clinical application: Diabetes.
6. Human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hAMSC), clinical application: cosmetic treatment and an alternative treatment of BMMSC.
7. Human hematopoietic stem cells (hHSC), clinical application: reestablish hematopoietic system.
Human fetal Neural Stem cells (hNSC) are self-regenerating,
multipotent cells, found in the human brain which have the potential to differentiate into three major cell types: nerve cells (neurons), astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, and to self renew sufficiently to provide an adequate number of cells in the brain. When brain cells are damaged or are dying, due to a disease or an injury, fetal neural stem cells are the best known source for treatment. Since most brain injuries, stroke, degenerative diseases and Demyelinating disorders affect several areas in the brain, the most effective and safe procedure to deliver neural stem cell into the brain is via a Lumbar Puncture (also called Spinal Tap): a spinal injection in the lumbar area (lower back) into the CSF (Cerebral Spinal Fluid). In our clinic, hNSC is applied to treat the patients with Cerebral Palsy, Brain Injury, Stroke, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Batten Diesease, Degenerative Diseases, and other neurological disorders.
Human Bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells are self-renewing and multipotent stem cells existing in bone marrow tissue, which in vitro are able to differentiate into certain cell types of all three germ layers, such as neuron, cartilage, osteoblast, hepatocyte and lipocyte cells . These cells regulate immune activity and provide niche (microenvironment) for surrounding cells. hBM-MSC can be extracted from adult bone marrow or from fetal bone marrow. Clinically, these cells have been identified significantly improve the conditions of the patients, who suffer from autoimmune diseases, nervous system diseases, coronary disease, hematoloic malignancy, or graft versus host disease(GVHD).
Human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (h) are directly isolated from umbilical cord tissue of infants. hUCMSC are very similar to the mesenchymal cells derived from bone marrow tissue, because they also can be induced and derived into distinct cell types. These cells are used clinically as an alternative treatment as hBM-MSC.
Human retinal pigment epithelial cells (hRPE) are of neuroectodermal origin and are found in the inner layer of the retina. These cells produce levodopa. They can be isolated from fetal and adult human eyes, grown easily in culture, and stored frozen for prolonged periods. Preclinical studies suggest the safety and effectiveness of human RPE cells as a suitable cell type to serve as a potential durable source of levodopa producing donor for implantation into the striatum of patients.
In recent years, hRPE cell transplantation has been used to treat Parkinson’s disease. RPE cells are easily obtained from donated eyes and can be proliferated in vitro. Then the cells are attached to microcarriers and transplanted into patients’ striatum. The stereotaxic intrastriatal implantation produced a constant amelioration of patients’ parkinsoniams without using any immune suppression.
hRPE cells were obtained from donated eyes, which are usually stored in an eye bank. The cells can be easily prepared and they proliferate abundantly in vitro. It is generally calculated that one eye can be used to treat several patients. Compared with cells isolated from FVM tissue, fetal RPE is obtained from aborted fetus. Since there are ethical controversy concerns of using embryos in transplantation, it will be of great advantage to obtain and use RPE cells for cell replacement therapy.
Human insulin producing cells (hIPC, unipotent), clinical application: Diabetes.
Human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hAMSC), clinical application: cosmetic treatment, and an alternative treatment of BMMSC.
Human hematopoietic stem cells (hHSC), clinical application: reestablish hematopoietic system.
Stem Cell Laboratory SOP
The stem cells we produce at TP undergo several tests for quality control, which includes and provides:
1. Safety control of original material: We test for the following infectious diseases of the donor, including HIV, HAV, HBV, HCV, Syphilis etc. All the results should be negative.
2. Filtration of the cultured cell: We filter cells by checking the surface antigen and immunogenicity through inducing cell differentiation and testing FACS regularly.
3. Double checking of Safety before clinical use
4. Before we deliver the stem cells to patients, we do a series of test to avoid virus infection, bacillus, tumors growth, mycoplasma, mutation, residual culture medium, etc. These tests will insure the safety of the stem cells.
