Immunosenescence refers to the gradual deterioration of the immune system brought on by aging. As people get older, the immune system undergoes many detrimental changes.
These changes cripple the immune system’s ability to fight infections, respond to vaccines, and keep cancer in check. Older adults suffer from more frequent and severe infectious diseases, have higher cancer rates, and show elevated autoimmunity.
Stem cells from both cord blood and mesenchymal sources exhibit potent immune-boosting and rejuvenating properties that counteract aging immunity.
Stem cells can differentiate into essential immune cells that decline with age, like naive T cells, B cells and NK cells. Animal studies find that stem cell treatments can reconstitute aged immune cell populations and restore immune organ function.
In mice, cord blood stem cells increased thymic mass and peripheral T cell populations. Mesenchymal stem cells regenerated atrophied thymus glands in aged rats. This reconstitution of immune cells and organs rebuilds immunity against infections and cancer.
Beyond replenishing cell numbers, stem cells enhance the function of existing immune cells in the elderly. Mesenchymal stem cell treatments in aged mice improved antibody response, natural killer cell activity and T cell proliferation.
Research also shows mesenchymal stem cells promote the health of supporting immune cells like dendritic cells and macrophages that coordinate immune responses. This strengthens the aged immune system at a functional level.
Aging brings higher inflammation that disturbs immune balance. But studies find mesenchymal stem cells can reduce inflammatory cytokines and autoantibody production in aged mice and humans. This tempers excessive inflammation to improve age-related immune dysfunction.
Telomeres protect chromosomes but shorten with each cell division, eventually causing cell senescence. Remarkably, peripheral blood stem cell transplantation lengthened telomeres in aged mice, suggesting the aging process can be reversed at a cellular level.
Animal research indicates stem cell therapies stimulate better cytokine and growth factor production from thymus tissue in aged subjects. These revitalizing biomolecules play a key role in maintaining immune cells and reversing degeneration.
The Stem Cell Medical Center provides cutting-edge stem cell therapies to strengthen and rejuvenate aging immune systems. Using advanced treatments with cord blood and mesenchymal stem cells, the Center helps older patients fight immunosenescence.
Seniors receive intravenous infusions of allogeneic cord blood stem cells from young, healthy donors. Cord blood stem cells migrate to bone marrow where they stimulate regeneration and cell division in the aged environment. This replenishes essential immune cells and reactivates bone marrow function.
Mesenchymal stem cells are also administered intravenously. They release growth factors to reduce harmful inflammation and trigger innate immune cells to fight cancer and infections more aggressively.
In addition, stem cell injections into lymph nodes, thymus gland or spinal canal target immune organs directly to restore structural and functional integrity. Patients also undergo nutritional optimization, stress reduction practices and lifestyle education for maximal benefits.
Pioneering stem cell therapies are producing remarkable enhancements to seniors’ immune strength, health and quality of life:
By using the body’s own repair mechanisms, the Stem Cell Medical Center restores immune vigor and resilience in seniors. Patients report feeling the “immunological clock” being turned back to more youthful function. Stem cell therapy represents the next generation of healthcare for combating age-related immunodeficiency.
Immunosenescence leaves seniors vulnerable to infectious diseases, cancer, and autoimmunity. Exciting new evidence shows that stem cell treatments can reverse this age-related immune decline by replenishing cells, boosting function, decreasing inflammation, and regenerating organs. The Stem Cell Medical Center provides leading-edge stem cell therapies to rejuvenate aging immune systems and help seniors regain immune strength.
