End Stage Liver Disease (ESLD) – Stem Cell Therapy in India
End stage liver disease (ESLD) is an irreversible condition that leads to the imminent complete failure of the liver. It is often a consequence of chronic liver diseases, and is one of the most extended causes of death in the western hemisphere…
Causes Of End Stage Liver Disease
End stage liver disease may be the final stage of many liver diseases. Cirrhosis, viral hepatitis, genetic disorders, metastasic cancer in the liver, autoimmune disorders, obesity and toxins and drugs can be factors that cause end stage liver disease and liver failure.
Alcohol abuse is the major cause of ESLD in the USA and most western countries. Like viral, it can lead to scarring and inflammation of the liver, which is known as cirrhosis…
Diagnosis Of End Stage Liver Disease
When a chronic condition that may lead to end-stage liver disease is diagnosed, treatment is applied. Eventually, however, liver failure will happen.
The diagnosis of a patient who enters the final stage of hit liver disease is made by observation of the status of the liver through imaging techniques such as CT scanning. Laboratory tests are also used to detect end stage liver disease, by observing the amount of certain enzymes and toxins present in the blood…
Liver Transplant Process
The liver is a fascinating organ, essential to life and with the unique ability of regenerating itself from a single portion. A liver transplant is a surgical procedure that consists in the replacement of a diseased liver with a healthy liver from another person. There are three types of liver transplantation methods: orthotopic transplantation, heterotopic transplantation and reduced-size transplantation..
Because stem cells are so versatile, they could potentially be used to repair and replace damaged human tissue. The purpose of experimental stem cell therapy is to offer potential benefits of stem cells, which may be : –
- To slow down or stop further deterioration caused by the disease
- To see if stem cells can reverse the effects of the disease
This procedure is considered experimental as it is being tested in clinical research studies, and is not yet available as a standard medical treatment…
The prevalence of end stage liver disease has increased alarmingly over the last few years. It is rapidly fatal and the current treatment involves a complicated process of liver transplantation. The usage of stem cell therapy is successfully being tried all over the world in end stage liver disease.
The idea behind the therapy is that the cells would home into the damaged/degenerated liver and stop the disease process. Subsequently we can hope to see the injected cells regenerate / differentiate into new functional liver cells thereby reviving metabolically the most important organ in the body needed for survival…
