Stem Cell Research - Enrolling Patient's with Peyronie's Disease

Stem Cell treatment for Peyronie’s; Enrolling Patients

Cell Surgical Network has had success with treating a very similar connective tissue/fibrotic disease, Dupytrens contracture.  They are enrolling new patients for a study using stem cells for Peyronie’s Disease.  They manufacture stem cells from your own body.  The statement below is from Cell Surgical Network’s  website and tells how the stem cells work to fight the plaque in Peyronie’s.

Our Technology

The Cell Surgical Network uses adipose derived stem cells for deployment & clinical research. Early stem cell research has traditionally been associated with the controversial use of embryonic stem cells. The new focus is on non-embryonic adult mesenchymal stem cells which are found in a person’s own blood, bone marrow, and fat. Most stem cell treatment centers in the world are currently using stem cells derived from bone marrow.
These adult stem cells are known as “progenitor” cells. This means they remain dormant (do nothing) unless they witness some level of tissue injury. It’s the tissue injury that turns them on. So, when a person has a degenerative type problem, the stem cells tend to go to that area of need and stimulate the healing process. We’re still not sure if they simply change into the type of injured tissue needed for repair or if they send out signals that induces the repair by some other mechanism. Suffice it to say that there are multiple animal models and a plethora of human evidence that indicates these are significant reparative cells.
