We’ve already talked about pancreas and its’ role in digestion. Today, we’re going to talk about modern pancreatitis therapy.
What is the general approach to treatment of pancreatitis / pancreonecrosis and are there any new, innovative approaches in medicine that combat it?
First things first:
- First, it’s advised to treat pancreatitis patients in hospital conditions, specifically, in surgical department.
- Second, the treatment has to be comprehensive.
- Third, it’s necessary to use autologous mesenchymal stem cells.
What constitutes comprehensive pancreatitis treatment?
- strict diet (no spicy or greasy food, alcohol abstinence);
- use of pain medication;
- enzyme substitution therapy (for example, usage of pancrelipase or pancreatin);
- treatment of endocrine comorbidities to pancreatitis like diabetes mellitus;
- timely treatment of gallstone disease;
- in rare cases, when conservative management does nothing, surgical intervention/endoscopic treatment should be considered.
Finally, the third, most important and innovative aspect of the treatment.
It is based on unique properties of mesenchymal stem cells.
A bit more details
Almost any form of pancreatitis, even if the treatment started on time, can neither be cured entirely nor slowed down to any practical degree.
However, it is different with autologous mesenchymal stem cells and their homing and chemotaxis qualities. As they enter damaged pancreatic tissue, they “socialize” and start dividing the very next day, almost completely regenerating it.
What is the treatment algorithm?
Call us and book yourself a free consultation, where we’ll discuss your treatment. We will draw a certain amount of blood from your veins, grow a necessary amount of your cells in 2 to 3 weeks and then also discuss your treatment with your physician. Then, we can proceed with a round of autologous mesenchymal stem cell therapy.
