A medical therapeutic experiment is a multi-stage procedure aimed at applying an innovative method of treatment, technology or an innovative therapeutic preparation, which is not a standard therapy for a given illness. The medical therapeutic experiment is an alternative for patients who have not yet been treated or previous treatment has not produced the desired therapeutic effects. The main goal of the medical therapeutic experiment is to improve the patient’s health. The use of MSC therapy as part of a medical therapeutic experiment must always be supported by the consent of the Bioethical Commission at the District Medical Chamber in Częstochowa, Poland.
Wharton’s jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells – WJ-MSC are a population of multipotent stem cells, located in the umbilical cord, classified as gelatinous connective tissue.
Wharton jelly is made up mainly of mucopolysaccharides, including hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulphate.
The mesenchymal stem cells used in the experiment have a fibroblast structure, show adhesion to plastic substrates and originate from unrelated and incompatible in the antigen range of tissue compliance and the main groups and Rh blood factor, donor.
“The use of mesenchymal cells obtained from Wharton’s jelly of an incompatible unrelated donor in the treatment of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and patients with pulmonary fibrosis in whom there is no causal treatment and in which the applied treatment did not improve the clinical condition”.
