The prevalence of diabetes is increasing worldwide, highlighting the need for the development of innovative therapeutic approaches for the prevention and cure of diabetes. Mounting evidence points to the involvement of multiple immune dysfunctions both in type 1 diabetes (T1D, caused by autoimmunity) and in type 2 diabetes (T2D, caused by insulin resistance). Dr.Yong Zhao at University of Illinois at Chicago has brought about an innovative technology—Stem Cell Educator therapy. Our revolutionizing technology is taking steps to the ultimate cure of diabetes as it also has laid foundation to the cure of other autoimmune diseases.
Tianhe Stem Cell Biotechnologies Inc. has licensed a whole series of patented technologies from the isolation of human cord blood-derived multipotent stem cells (CB-SCs) to clinical applications. It has a major division in China, Jinan Tianhe Stem Cell Biotechnology Co., Ltd., located in Jinan High-tech Bioindustry Park District. Currently, Tianhe is focusing on the application of Stem Cell Educator therapy in diabetes. Notably, our clinical data provide powerful evidence that Stem Cell Educator therapy can balance the immune system and lead to regeneration of islet beta cells and improvement of metabolic control in long-standing diabetic subjects. This principle may also be beneficial in the treatment of other autoimmune-related diseases.
