Chronic kidney disease affect over 10% of the global population, because of a rise in the aging population and underlying diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and hypertension.
What Is Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)?
Chronic kidney disease describes the gradual loss of kidney function in the patient. Kidneys function by filtering waste and excess fluids and these impurities are then excreted out through urine. In the case of CKD, fluid, electrolytes, and wastes build up in the body owing to restricted filtration functionality of the kidneys. Many studies have pointed out that glomerular mesangial cells provide support to the glomerular capillary loops and helps the infiltration process, thus playing a major role as a target in chronic kidney disease. Renal endothelial cell dysfunction occurs in Chronic Kidney Disorders and leads to reduced L-arginine transport and impaired nitric oxide bioavailability.
This further results in cardiovascular disease risks. Although a routine treatment for chronic kidney diseases, artificial filtering (dialysis) and multidrug therapy cannot reverse end-stage renal disease in most patients, and thus the regeneration of kidney is a much sought-after alternative hypothesis using stem cell treatment. Currently, in the event of CKD, organ transplantation remains the only hope for patient survival. But owing to factors related to the shortage of organ donors and challenges of rejection and immunosuppression, chronic kidney diseases patients face serious economic and health burdens.

Role Of Stem Cell Therapy In CKD Treatment
Stem cell treatment-based regeneration of kidney proves to be the best alternative to dialysis and organ transplantation, as this regenerative pharmaceutical technique uses indigenous bone marrow cells and adipose tissues to derive stem cells to grow the damaged part of the organ. Apart from providing an alternative to kidney transplantation as a regenerative pharmaceutical (as some may call it), stem cell treatment also maximizes functional independence, reduces future complications, and minimizes CKD symptoms.
The completely autologous procedure involves the transplantation of Stem Cells taken from adipose tissues and bone marrow. These cells participate in the biological regeneration and repair of infected cells in the kidneys of the patient and also improves the damage to mesangial cells, renal endothelial cells, and other renal cells.
Stem Cell Therapy For Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) In India
In India, Stem Cell Treatment has progressed successfully in giving promising results for chronic illnesses like kidney disorders, which are not responding to standard treatment methods. Doctors are quite hopeful that someday, stem cell treatment will offer a potential alternative to existing costly and painful medical interventions for curing chronic kidney disease. Moreover, stem cell treatment is a minimally invasive, non-surgical, and safe procedure without any side effects.
In India, the cost of stem cell treatment for chronic kidney diseases is around 3,500$ and further depends on the severity of the patient’s condition and any associated complications.
