Benefits of Stem Cell Treatment in Ukraine

The advantages of stem cell cirrhosis clinics in Ukraine include:

  • Security. This method causes far fewer side effects than others used.
  • Accuracy of action. Cell therapy is characterized by one characteristic feature, SCs, after introduction into the body, migrate exclusively to the localization sites of inflammatory processes. This pattern is explained by the presence of special receptors in them, capable of determining the location of the accumulation of leukocytes.
  • Help with advanced stages of cirrhosis. It has been clinically proven that stem cell therapy is able to repair damaged liver structures even in the severe stages of their destruction;
  • Availability. Ukraine is the only country among all post-Soviet countries in which the use of stem cells is not only permitted at the legislative level, but is also widely used in many specialized medical institutions;
