Doctor to Give Talk on Stem Cells and Stem Cell Therapy at Biblioteca

By Dr Jose (Pepe) Valencia

Stem cells, the name given to a category of cells which produce specialized cells for the body and can divide infinitely without losing their properties, are the foundation cells for every organ and tissue in our bodies. That also gives them incredible power to heal and repair.

Find out more about these cell powerhouses at a talk by Dr Jose “Pepe” Valencia at the Biblioteca’s Sala Quetzal on April 25.

Stem cells come from two main sources: embryos and adult tissue. Both categories are generally characterized by their potency or potential to differentiate into different cell types such as skin, hair, muscle, bone, cartilage, and others. When infused in the body, they have the ability to regenerate any of these. This is how our bodies heal.

Adult stem cells are found inside of different types of tissue, such as the bone marrow, brain, blood, blood vessels, skeletal muscles, skin, and liver. They can remain in a dormant or nondividing state for years until activated by disease or tissue injury. Then they follow your blood platelets to the injured site and transform into the same type of cell that was injured.

Mesenchymal stem cells can be obtained from body tissue like fat tissue, bone marrow, menstrual fluid, and placenta. Mesenchymal stem cells do not have a problem with rejection. They are universal and compatible with any person, and have the potential to differentiate into various cell types. When infused in the body, they have the ability to regenerate many tissues.

Mesenchymal stem cells possess distinct properties like histocompatibility—a state of mutual tolerance between tissues in the body allowing them to be grafted—and immunomodulation—modification of the immune response. Upon synthesizing the proteins of the specific organ or tissue, they are converted into a new part. This is what is called regeneration.


Allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells can be harvested from the placenta after normal, healthy births once the donor has been tested for infectious disease and the stem cells have been screened and tested to make sure they pass international blood bank standards.

Stem cell therapy is a treatment where stem cells that are derived from the patient’s fat cells and bone marrow, or from a donor, are injected into the damaged area. These cells naturally supplement the body’s stem cells and help the injury heal much faster.

As we age, the number of stem cells in our body significantly decreases, and their potency becomes progressively weaker, resulting in a noticeable decrease in the body’s ability to heal and repair damaged tissues. People who may benefit from stem cell therapy include those with spinal cord injuries, Type 1 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, stroke, burns, osteoarthritis, and other degenerative diseases of the joints.

CBCells lab have developed several procedures for applying stem cell therapy with significant results. They have received numerous testimonials of excellent results from their patients, improving the following ailments: diabetes, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, migraines, facial paralysis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, lumbago, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, leptospirosis, and herniated discs.
