Treatment for chronic lever failure

Until now, the only solution for end‐stage chronic liver disease was transplantation. Now ISSL brings you a much‐needed alternative in adult stem cell therapy.

Chronic liver damage causes scar tissue to slowly replace healthy liver tissue and leads to a progressive decline in blood supply through the liver. Over time, liver function degenerates and the natural regenerative capacity of the liver is not sufficient to off‐set the chronic damage.

Chronic liver failure can be caused by a number of factors, the main ones being alcohol, hepatitis A and B, and fatty liver disease.

Who needs therapy?

Patients who need a liver transplant should seriously consider this safe and effective alternative. There is no wait for treatment and the cost is much more affordable than that for transplantation.

What can ISSL offer?

ISSL offers a unique form of therapy using autologous (patient’s own) adult stem cells.

The safety and efficacy of the treatment has been proved. Clinical results have been published in the leading scientific journal, Transplantation Proceedings (May 2008).
All treated patients showed improvement in major liver function tests (see chart).
There were no incidents of adverse effects
