Principle 1 – Patient Protection: protect the patient you are treating from possible adverse effects and complications that might be caused by the cells you are administering.
Principle 2 – Cell Protection: protect the cells you are administering from transplant rejection through immunologic tolerance induction.
Principle 3 – Organ- and Tissue-Specific Therapy: only use stem cells that are isolated from those organs and tissues of the fetus that are affected in the patient.
Principle 4 – Optimal Administration Mode: choose administration mode ensuring maximal cell delivery to the affected organ or tissue.
Principle 5 – Age and Disease Type Consideration: combine fetal stem cells with fetal tissue extracts in elderly and very old patients as well as in those with chronic diseases.
Principle 6 – Disease Severity Consideration: combine fetal stem cells with fetal tissue extracts in severe cases.
Principle 7 – Cell Count: administer the highest possible dose of fetal stem cells in all the diseases, irrespective of the patient’s age.
Principle 8 –Treatment Benefits Timing: always explain to the patient that “the cell is not a pill”, but a transplant, though not a panacea, therefore the first treatment results will develop no earlier than 3 months after cell administration.
Principle 9 – Top-Ups (Repeated Treatments): fetal stem cell therapy can be repeated no earlier than 3 months after the first transplantation.
