Have you ever thought how will your physical condition be like when you are approaching middle age or towards your 60s, 70s, 80s, or even your 90s?
Aging is a natural process that no one can escape from. Environmental and genetic factors leave traces of aging such as dry skin, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, memory loss, hair loss, and decline in immune system. With the booming era of medicine in the 21st century, we can delay aging through cell therapy by strengthening our immune system, which improves quality of life.
Cell therapy is the process of introducing new cells into a tissue, thereby activating the body’s “self-healing function” and building a robust and effective immune system to fight diseases.
There are mainly two types of cell therapy and they are stem cell therapy and immunotherapy.
Stem cell therapy refers to the use of stem cells to transplant into patient’s body using specialised techniques in order to replace or repair damaged cells, tissues or organs.
Immunotherapy is the use of patient’s own immune cells such as natural killer cells (NK cells), dendritic cells (DC cells), B cells and T-cells to effectively target any foreign threats in the body such as infected cells or cancerous cells.
With rapid research and development in the field of medicine and biology, scientists gradually uncover that the factors behind aging and age related diseases are due to poor lifestyle habits and genetic traits.
