Stem Cell Terminology – Glossary

When it comes to stem cell treatment, people are often confused by the number of complex medical terms they encounter while looking for information. To help you clear the smoke, GO.CARE has compiled this glossary of stem cell terminology.

1. Rejuvenation Therapy

Autologous Stem Cell Therapy (ASCT)

During an autologous stem cell transplant, doctors extract the stem cells from your own body (e.g.: belly fat – adipose stem ells- your own blood, etc.). Once removed from the patient’s body, they are cryopreserved and later given back to the same person.

Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs)

They are adult stem cells that can differentiate into many different types of cells, including bone, muscle, fat, cartilage, etc.

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are able to secrete cytokines and stem cell growth factors. Apart from that, these cells can help with the immune system regulation, reduce inflammation, heal scarring and reverse apoptosis (cellular death). All of these effects provide a high chance of improvements for those suffering from different health issues, including degenerative diseases.

Aesthetic Cell Therapy (A-Cell)

  • Mito Organelle

Mito Organelle is a fusion of cellular therapy and mitochondrial medicine. It is mainly used for rejuvenation and anti-aging.

It contains plenty of cellular peptides, which help with cell regeneration and restore it to normal function.

  • NANO Organo Peptides

This is a compelling tissue that helps repair peptide molecules and organ-specific cellular extracts. They can be extracted through a proprietary parallel-extraction process when Fetal Precursor Stem Cells are manufactured.

  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma refers to a form of regenerative medicine that can help parts of the body heal themselves by amplifying the body’s natural growth factors. The treatment can be used to heal tissues.

For PRP therapy to be successful, doctors will use injections that contain a concentration of the patient’s own platelets, which will aid in healing different body parts such as ligaments, tendons, joints, etc.

2. Cancer Immunotherapy


GcMAF is a Vitamin D-Binding protein that helps to support the immune system. In addition, it also aids in activating macrophage cells that are essential in fighting diseases and infections.

It also activates cells that repair the tissue and strengthen the immune system. Therefore, GcMAF has the potential to help patients fight cancer cells in their bodies.

Thymus Therapy

The thymus is a very important ingredient for immune therapies. The thymus gland itself is an essential part of the immune system that helps fight off many diseases. It is located on top of the heart.

Thymus therapy consists of several thymus extract injections, which will help activate and positively regulate the body’s immune system.

Active Specific Immunotherapy (ASI)

This is one of the latest advances in both regenerative and integrative medicine. It is mainly used for cancer therapy, as it effectively destroys cancerous cells while leaving healthy ones untouched.

The immune system is therefore modulated by the ASI therapy. The treatment is useful in fighting not only cancer, but also other diseases of the immune system.

Super Transfer Factor (STF)

STFs are bio-molecular extracts that will give your body immunity. They consist of a component of Leukocyte Dialysate Extract, which is commonly referred to as Transfer Factor. This factor can stimulate antigen-specific T-lymphocyte responses in the body.

These factors come from a donor. They are administered to a patient in order to gain cell-mediated immunity, which will protect him/her from illnesses.

3. Organ-Specific

Precursor Stem Cell Therapy (PSCT)

These cells are partially differentiated stem cells; they are extracted from animal fetuses during organogenesis.

Precursor stem cells are multipotent cells, which means the way in which they will differentiate has already been predetermined.

This therapy is ideal for replacing the patient’s malfunctioning cells, as it can deliver a regenerative effect in the recipient’s body. This helps restore injured or diseased tissues and organs.

Fetal Precursor Stem Cells (FSC)

Many therapists have used fetal precursor cells for their therapies. These cells come from animals and are not pluripotent.

As they are not human fetal stem cells, the use of FSCs does not cause any ethical issues.
