Diabetes Treatment Status and Improvements after Treatment
We started clinical application of using stem cell transplantation to treat diabetes since our department’s clinical trial registration was approved by the WHO in April, 2010. (Registration number of stem cell transplantation to treat type 1 diabetes: ChiCTR-TNC-10000986; registration number of stem cell transplantation to treat type 2 diabetes: ChiCTR-ONC-10000985). Till the end of 2014, our department treated more than 265 patients of type 2 diabetes, and the treatment is effective to over 92% of patients, and 60% of patients have a better blood glucose control with half dose of the insulin than before. After the first course of treatment, 30% of patients can stop using insulin and oral hypoglycemic drugs......Read More >>

All kinds of diabetes is at the risk of long-term complications. These usually worsen after 1-2 decades, and most of the long-term complications are related to damage to blood vessels.

Type 2 diabetes is primarily result from lifestyle factors and genetics.
There' re two main types of diabetes mellitus. Read More about Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes >>
The Stem Cell Department of General Hospital of Chinese People’s Armed Police Forces and the 309th Hospital of Chinese People's Liberation Army is the first neural stem cell transplantation center at home and abroad, which went through WHO clinical trial registration, obtained the FDA clinical trial approval and had laboratory with GMP certification of stem cell research and preparation. Leaders in stem cell treatments for cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury syndrome, ulcerative colitis, cirrhosis, stroke, diabetes and multiple system atrophy. Until now, we have used stem cell therapy to treat about 10,000+ patients from more than 30 countries. More About Us >>
