SVF – Stem Cell Treatment by testicular perfusion

Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the reparative response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissues using stem cells or their derivatives. It is the next chapter of organ transplantation and uses cells instead of donor organs, which are limited in supply. 

Our research team can now harvest and grow stem cells in our lab. These stem cells are manipulated and programmed to develop into specific types of cells which can then, when introduced into a particular organ or tissue to be able to proliferate further, give rise to similar tissue and help rehabilitate the deficient organ. The specialized cells can then be implanted into a person. 
In our case, the specialized stem cells can then be implanted into the testes via a specific methodology that we have developed as “testicular perfusion”. Which can enable the deficient testes of an azoospermic male with Sertoli-only-Syndrome to begin producing sperm that can be used further for procreation. Our team is now very happy to announce the birth of the first “Stem Cell” baby at one of our global Centers in Lahore, Pakistan. This is a remarkable achievement for our team and we will be able now to offer this type of service to other couples. The procedure is quite promising for couples suffering from azoospermia due to “Sertoli-Only-Syndrome”

Stem cells are isolated from the adipose tissue to be obtained from abdominal liposuction. This is a small-scale surgery, which is performed by a surgeon, therefore, before undergoing surgery, a written consent is obtained from the patient.

Adipose tissue obtained via the liposuction process is then subjected to enzymal dissociation and several other procedures so that the stem cells can be successfully isolated. In the meanwhile, patient’s platelet rich plasma (PRP) is also isolated separately. 

After the stem cells are subjected to culture media and seeding and once all the procedures are carried out, the combination of PRP with stem cell population is injected into testes at four different locations.

Once the PRP and MSC combo has been injected, the patient is discharged and semen analysis testing is ordered in 3 months time to observe the effects of stem cell therapy.
