Stem cell transplantation has been used for the first time to treat diabetes in Gansu province
Recently, the Anning branch of lanzhou military region general hospital adopted stem cell transplantation technology for the first time to treat two patients with diabetes. After the operation, within more than a month of observation, the two patients were in good health, the blood glucose index was basically coming back to normal, and the symptoms such as blurred vision, poor sleep, leg and foot tingling were also significantly improved.
Stem cell transplantation is a new technology in the field of diabetes treatment in the world. At present, many medical institutions at home and abroad are carrying out clinical trials, and Anning branch of Lanzhou military region general hospital takes the lead in carrying out this technology in our province. Department of endocrinology director Lin yunxin introduced, stem cell is a self-replicating and multi-directional differentiation potential of the primitive cells that form various tissues and organs of the primitive cells of our bodies, the process of stem cell transplantation for the treatment of diabetes, is the equivalent of two minimally invasive surgery under local anesthesia, its principle is to repair the pancreas function and inductio of endogenous insulin secretion increased, improve insulin sensitivity through the transplant autologous stem cells. According to the clinical experience at home and abroad, this technique has the advantages of low risk, non-toxic side effects, high safety, low trauma and high treatment efficiency. Apart from a few people with blood coagulation dysfunction, severe infectious disease, lung disease can not tolerate surgery, with other Ⅰ, Ⅱ and some diabetic patients with complications, this can be a technical treatment of diabetes.
Recently, the hospital conducted stem cell transplantation for a second batch of 4 diabetic patients.
