About

Stem Cell Therapy in Thailand

Beike Biotech

Stem cell therapy in Thailand. We partner with Better Being Hospital delivering great benefits to patients.

Beike Biotech is the leading provider of stem cell therapy in Thailand. Beike’s stem cells are derived from healthy donors who are carefully screened for transmissible diseases. The samples are additionally screened by government appointed blood banks and Beike’s specialized laboratories. The stem cells are then banked in state-of-the-art facilities and only utilized in partnership with the best hospitals and physicians. We partner with Better Being Hospital in Bangkok delivering stem cell therapy in Thailand.
Stringent quality control procedures are undertaken at each of Beike‘s eighteen laboratories. Some of the laboratories are located inside the research departments of hospitals while others are located directly inside government blood banks. Beike also has two large stand alone laboratories where both research and stem cell processing take place. Beike, in partnership with the regional government, maintains a bank for the storage of stem cells located in the China Medical City in the Jiangsu province. This storage facility is capable of storing cord blood, cord mesenchymal, and iPS cells. All of the laboratories are outfitted with modern equipment and have been fully certified by the relevant drug authorities.   

Treatment protocols include injections of umbilical cord blood stem cells, cord mesenchymal stem cells, and bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells directly into the spinal cord fluid and intravenously. However, for ailments like spinal cord injuries, liver disease, heart disease, muscular dystrophy, and lower limb ischemia, the stem cells are delivered through injections directly into the damaged tissue as well as through standard methods. For many diseases, protocols include rehabilitation and physical therapy. Beike Biotech is one of the leading providers of stem cell therapy in Thailand.

Stem cells work by providing the body with paracrine and cytokines as well as a variety of other cell factors. These help to encourage the following functions:

1. Immune system regulation
2. Reducing cell death
3. Stimulation of growth of the patient’s own stem cells
4. Neo-angiogenesis (the growth of blood vessels resulting in increased blood flow to damaged areas)
5. Scar tissue reduction
6. Improving the effective conduction of intercellular electrical signals and transduction

We specialize in stem cell therapy for MS Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Spinal Cord Injury, Spine Bifida, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Visual Impairment, Muscular Dystrophy and Ataxia.
Our research for future treatments is focused mainly on iPS technology in partnership with various leading scientific groups including Tsinghua Unversity. Beike’s scientists and partners have authored nearly eighty publications in Chinese scientific journals as well as ongoing clinical studies since our first ALS trial program in 2001. We very much welcome cooperation with international partners to help verify the effectiveness of our treatments and protocols and to license other technologies for use throughout our network of twenty seven hospitals。

The company was founded with capital from Beijing University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and Shenzhen City Hall. The formation of the company was also supported with grants from the China State National Fund. Since that time, additional capital has been provided by a variety of Chinese venture capital firms.In total, Beike has received over US$6 million in Chinese government grants including a grant for a joint laboratory in Shenzhen with Tsingua University to focus on the study of stem cell reprogramming.

Beike‘s head office is located in Shenzhen but the company also has offices in Beijing, Nanjing, Taizhou, and Qingdao.

Stem Cell Processing Information
In January 2010, both Beike Biotechnology Stem Cell Preparation Laboratory and Beike’s Jiangsu Stem Cell Bank received ISO9001 Quality Management System Authentication from the China Quality Center (CQC). The stem cell bank was the first comprehensive storage facility to receive this authentication in China.

PatientAndrew was born at 25 weeks weighing 1lb and 9oz. After being in the NICU for 97 days he had to be incubated for a further six weeks. Despite this rough beginning, Andrew is a precocious and happy child. During the first year of his life, his parents noticed that he was missing motor milestones in his development. In the summer of 2007 he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.
Andrew Ricci
Read full review

Before coming to China, Andrew's gross motor skills, fine motor skills and speech control were all developmentally delayed. He had trouble rolling over and sitting unassisted. His right arm was stronger than his left. He had more control over his right hand than left. He had trouble with oral motor control and therefore had trouble both with speaking and eating. He was able to make a few sounds such as "es" for yes and also "dadadada" and "eeeee". He had difficulty eating solid food and had delayed gastric-emptying, which led to bouts of vomiting almost every day.

Reason for Coming for Treatment
In the U.S. Drew was receiving extensive therapy through his school system and was making good progress, although he was still delayed in reaching motor and speech milestones for his age group. His delayed gastric-emptying was also causing major problems in getting the nutrition he needed. It affected his quality of life in general. While researching potential treatments, Drew's parents discovered adult stem cell therapy as a promising option. After consideration, they decided that stem cells were an appropriate next step to help complement Andrew's ongoing therapy. As Mike Ricci, Andrew's father said, "You can only do so much through traditional therapy. We wanted to do stem cell treatment to give him the extra boost he needs. And then through therapy, give him the extra abilities. I don't think stem cells alone are going to cure anything unless you keep going with the therapy and further train his mind to do new things."

Treatment in China
First Therapy: 6 Umbilical cord blood stem cell transplants, acupuncture and rehabilitation therapy.
Second Therapy: 8 umbilical cord blood stem cell transplants, acupuncture and rehabilitation therapy.

Condition After Treatment
During their first month-long stay in China, Andrew received six umbilical cord blood stem cell transplants. While still in the hospital, Andrew's parents noticed that there where already changes in his eating habits and gastric emptying.
As Mike Ricci explains, "When we first got here he was unable to drink water without choking, he was unable to eat food that was not of a mushy consistency. And by the time we left he was eating nachos and cheese and drinking water."
Along with his improved eating ability, Drew was able to make more sounds and he began to say many new words.

Drew's physical abilities also improved after he returned home to the U.S. His American therapist noticed that his fine motor control had improved. For example he was able to reach out and point to or grab specific objects. The therapist also reported that his gross motor function had improved. His head control was better, he was able to role more easily and he had started to crawl.

Encouraged by the improvements they saw in Andrew after his first round of stem cell treatments, his family decided to come back for another round of stem cells in March of 2009. During this round, Andrew received eight injections. (As news of his continued progress comes in, check back here for updates on Drew's condition.)

Patient"The reason I went was because I was 36 and on chemotherapy and didn't even have cancer. I had to walk with a cane and look into other's faces as they wondered what was wrong with me. Now I walk confidently, on my own, and look into other's faces as they are returning my smile!"

"I was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in early 1998.  Most of my “major” attacks consisted of Optic Neuritis which doctors treated by IV steroids.  These major attacks were accompanied by less “severe” symptoms: numbness, loss of balance, foot drop, seizures, migraine headaches, fatigue, and depression.  These are just the MS symptoms that I had to deal with.  Because of the foot drop on my left leg, I have fallen numerous times.  On one such occasion, I fell on concrete, hit my face and required emergency help; I ended up needing stitches because of the fall.  Walking a long distance was out of the question, as well as being able to stand for a long period of time.  Stress from dealing with the disease and the disease itself caused a downward spiral with the depression.  I wasn’t myself; I was a shell of my former self.  The exacerbations began to occur more frequently and I ended up needing to walk with a cane.  In September of 2007, the doctors diagnosed me as secondary progressive MS and put me on chemotherapy to help treat the MS.

 I showed great progress after the first chemotherapy treatment in the US, but the following chemo treatments zapped me. Now that I was getting chemo, I had fewer MS symptoms, but I had the side effects of chemotherapy to deal with.  After I found out about the stem cell treatments we made plans to go and I discontinued the chemotherapy.

 Treatment in China

I went to China in May 2008 and received 5 stem cell transplants; 4 spinal injections and one IV of umbilical cord blood stem cells. Physical therapy with Martin (the miracle PT guy!), acupuncture and electric wave stimulation. 

 Condition After Treatment

My results were fabulous! I couldn’t physically jump before the transplants; now I can. This happened after the first injection. My balance was off before the treatments, now I can balance on one foot for at least 30 seconds. Before the treatments exercise was out of the question. Now I work-out with a personal trainer twice a week. He has me doing squats and push ups and I am getting stronger just overall. My headaches have decreased in severity and frequency. The dull ache I had in the back of my head behind my right eye is gone. I am at work almost every day in addition to participating in social activities. I get to make choices for my life and how I will get to live it out. Before, the disease controlled how I was living. 

 Condition Today

Based on my experience and the results I have seen, it was the best decision I have made.  

 I still have days when I am tired, off-balance or have headaches, but these days are further apart. I can do more things than I used to, walk around the mall with my niece,  nephews and other family members. I get to go to a friends party and stay the whole evening instead of having to leave early. I'm working out with a trainer. I'm doing squats with weights and push-ups, before I had walk with a cane. I can climb stairs without having a death grip on the railing and a lot of the time I use the stairs without holding on!"

PatientLinda was suffering from Parkinson’s symptoms for 5 years. During the last year her condition deteriorated and she considered having a DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) surgery. Eventually, Linda decided to come to China for stem cell treatment.

TREATMENT: hRPE stem cells implantation (human Retinal Pigment Epithelial cells, (adult stem cells) by stereotactic brain injection + nutritious stem cell cocktail treatment (intravenous).

START OF TREATMENT: March 6, 2007.

BEFORE THE TREATMENT:

Linda’s main symptoms were rigidity and stiffness in the left side of her body. She had mild tremors mainly in her left hand and had difficulty grasping small objects or holding things with her fingers. She would drag her left leg while walking and while at rest the 

muscles in her leg and tows would contract. During the night her muscles would contract constantly keeping her regularly from having more than few hours sleep. Her muscles were very weak and she would tire very quickly, her posture was stooped and she suffered from a general tenseness and stiffness in her face, neck and back.

Without the affect of the medications she could not turn her neck and should turn her whole body in order to look back. Every morning, before the medications started to influence, it was difficult getting dressed, getting out of bed or taking a shower. 

Before the treatment Linda took her medications every 2-3 hours (Contam 250mg x 8 times a day). One hour after taking the medications Linda’s symptoms were hardly noticed, but the medications’ influence wear out quickly and Linda’s every activity was dependant on her next dose of medications.

During the last few years Linda’s short term memory was affected up to a level that she quit her job in human resources. Her hand writing was affected too – even after taking the medications, it was still very scratchy and hard to read.

Linda also suffered from general anxiety and depression. 

AFTER THE TREATMENT: 

Linda’s first notable change after the surgery was a full night sleep - the first one in 5 years. Within 5 weeks after the stem cell implantation most of Linda’s symptoms were gradually gone. Her fingers got their flexibility back and the tremors were gone – she could now grasp things, open a door and articulate more precise movements with her fingers. 

The cramps in her leg were gone and she stopped dragging her left leg.

“I don’t need to think anymore about every movement, as I did before” she says. 

Her muscle tension was significantly reduced, she felt more relaxed and stronger than before. 

Her posture became more open and she could now turn her neck more easily.
Before leaving the hospital Linda still had some weakness in her muscles but she felt that she is getting stronger every day.

Linda also noticed that her sense of smell and taste that were greatly weakened during the last years were coming back.

A major change in her quality of life was that now her symptoms were unnoticeable with almost half the dosage of the medications she used to take before. Linda is now taking medications 4 times a day (Sinemet 200mg X4 times a day) instead of 8 times of double dosage that she used to take before the treatment.

“I was a watch keeper, I used to watch at the clock all the time, I stopped swimming riding bicycle and other activities because I never knew when the medications affect will wear out” she says.

Linda hopes that her medications could be gradually reduced even more, and she will keep a close contact with her doctors in China in order to follow up with her condition.
