For over 15 years the founder of our clinic Professor Alexander Smikodub Sr. was the head of the clinic developing and introducing unique methods of stem cell treatment. Now his son Alexander Smikodub Jr. continues this unique treatment commenced by his father. During the years of work our clinic has performed about 6 500 transplantations of fetal stem cells.

The clinic has a license for all the stem cell treatment methods developed by Alexander Smikodub Sr., Alexander Smikodub Jr. and its other specialists. At the present time, a number of patents on fetal stem cell application for treatment of various diseases and conditions are considering in the patent offices of many countries.

In the BBC documentary our clinic was called the “Last Hope Clinic” because we treat and follow-up the most severe clinical cases from all over the world.

Today our clinic successfully treats:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS);
  • Diabetes;
  • Anemia;
  • Arterial hypertension;
  • Alzheimer's disease;
  • Parkinson's disease;
  • Liver diseases;
  • Ischemic heart disease;
  • Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease;
  • Muscular dystrophy;
  • Encephalopathy;
  • Cancer;
  • Spinal muscular atrophy;
  • Multiple sclerosis;
  • Rheumatoid arthritis.

UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC has developed a comprehensive program with fetal stem cell application for effective rejuvenation. You can undergo the revitalization procedure at any age and receive the most positive result. With age, potential for regeneration in the human body declines. This is a clear cause of many diseases and pathological conditions. Strenuous work schedule, environmental factors, ecological situation in the world only enhance this process and inhibit complete restoration of the body resources in a period of rest. Most anti-aging preparations and programs are aimed to stimulate reparative systems of the human body that already function at the limit.

UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC offers not to stimulate restorative resources of the body, but to substitute them. After our treatment, fetal stem cells will restore a range of vital body functions, adjust metabolism, balance hormones, improve the trophic (nutrition and blood supply) of tissues and organs; that undoubtedly will lead to improvement of work capacity, prevention of different diseases and enhancement of life quality. Naturally, such system changes contribute to skin regeneration, improvement of its elasticity and ability to self-renew, which leads to improvement in its appearance.

Professor Alexander Smikodub Sr. is a recognized world leader in developing of methods of stem cell treatment. We have achieved outstanding positive results in treatment of such conditions as aging, functional disorders of internal organs, impotence, menopause, infertility, chronic fatigue syndrome.

Effects of the treatment with fetal stem cells in many diseases and conditions are far beyond the capacity of all other modern methods of treatment.

Stem cell therapy is very effective for restoration of various organs and tissues, for fighting against incurable and inveterate diseases.

UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC uses modern methods of isolation and storage of fetal stem cells. We have our own biotechnological laboratory and modern bank of medicinal preparations based on fetal cell suspensions. We ourselves produce medicinal preparations based on fetal cell suspensions, test them and use for treatment and scientific researches. Creation of medicinal preparations based on fetal cell suspensions and treatment of patients by the same organization is a perfect combination that lets us be confident of high quality of the cell transplant and allows reaching the most positive results.

The clinic has a license for all the stem cell treatment methods developed by Alexander Smikodub Sr., Alexander Smikodub Jr. and its other specialists. All the methods are protected by the patents of Ukraine, Russia, the USA and other countries. At the present time, a number of patents on fetal stem cell application for treatment of a wide range of diseases and conditions are considering in the patent offices of many countries.

During the years of work UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC has won international recognition in the branch of research and treatment of patients by unique methods with application of fetal stem cells (in vivo). Scientific researches of Professor Smikodub and other our scientists were awarded a number of certificates of international medical conferences and congresses. But the most valuable award for us is recovery of our patients, and UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC led by Dr. Smikodub will do everything possible for it.


Our longstanding treatment of patients from different countries allowed us to gain a unique experience in organization of not only treatment but also stay of our visitors in Ukraine.

Treatments

UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC provides comprehensive treatment that includes administration of a medicinal preparation containing fetal stem cells combined with effective conventional therapy. Our treatment uses all the latest achievements in the field of modern medicine in complex.

Fetal stem cell treatment is transplantation of suspensions of progenitor cells that form the main tissue types (ectodermal, mesodermal and endodermal) and that are later responsible for certain organs and systems of organs which perform all functions of the body.

Fetal stem cell therapy is minimally invasive and presupposes intravenous and/or subcutaneous suspension administration. Our treatment doesn’t require any surgery or other procedures as well as preliminary medication preparation.

Unlike stem cells of other origin (bone marrow, cord blood, peripheral blood, fat, etc.) fetal stem cells don’t cause any histocompatibility problems as HLA expression in the fetus is either minimal or absent at this time.

For our treatment we use different types of stem cells harvested from various germ layers of the legally aborted embryos of 5–12 weeks of gestation (development).We have developed and introduced into medical practice unique treatment schemes with a combination of various stem cell types that have different qualities considering the nature of disease, its stages and pathogenesis. This allows to achieve the maximum positive results and to ensure long-lasting effect from our therapy.

Being administered into the patient’s body fetal stem cells adapt, migrate to the lesion focus (homing), engraft and reproduce. After that they undergo specialization under regulation of the new host body (recipient), substitute lost or damaged cells and this way encourage the restoration of the cell mass and impaired body functions. Moreover, fetal stem cells produce vital biologically active substances such as various tissues growth and proliferation factors, hormones, ferments, systems of cell and tissue regulation.

The effects observed in patients after fetal stem cell treatment comprise all levels of organization and functioning of human organism and are arranged systematically.

We have distinguished the following basic therapeutic effects of fetal stem cell treatment:

  1. Rapid and essential improvement of patients’ mental and physical activities, improvement of sleep and appetite, conative component, stabilization and improvement of mood, positive psychophysiological changes, in particular in such areas as thinking, attention and memory.
  2. Reconstitution of suppressed hematopoiesis (normalization of erythrocyte, lymphocyte, leukocyte, and thrombocyte counts).
  3. Restoration of the immune system competence depending on what is beneficial for the patient in his/her current condition and stage of the disease.
  4. Stimulation of organs and tissues reparation functions, improvement of trophism in damaged tissues, restoration of impaired metabolism, slowing down the aging process and a very vivid effect of "functional rejuvenation".
  5. Normalization of homeostasis – maintenance of the constant internal environment as a whole, and carbohydrate, lipid, water and electrolyte metabolism in particular.
     

Today our clinic offer treatments for:

  • Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS);
  • Diabetes;
  • Anemia;
  • Arterial hypertension;
  • Alzheimer's disease;
  • Parkinson's disease;
  • Liver diseases;
  • Ischemic heart disease;
  • Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease;
  • Muscular dystrophy;
  • Encephalopathy;
  • Cancer;
  • Spinal muscular atrophy;
  • Multiple sclerosis;
  • Rheumatoid arthritis.

Anti Aging Treatment

UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC has developed a comprehensive program with fetal stem cell application for effective rejuvenation. You can undergo the revitalization procedure at any age and receive the most positive result. With age, potential for regeneration in the human body declines. This is a clear cause of many diseases and pathological conditions. Strenuous work schedule, environmental factors, ecological situation in the world only enhance this process and inhibit complete restoration of the body resources in a period of rest. Most anti-aging preparations and programs are aimed to stimulate reparative systems of the human body that already function at the limit.

UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC offers not to stimulate restorative resources of the body, but to substitute them. After our treatment, fetal stem cells will restore a range of vital body functions, adjust metabolism, balance hormones, improve the trophic (nutrition and blood supply) of tissues and organs; that undoubtedly will lead to improvement of work capacity, prevention of different diseases and enhancement of life quality. Naturally, such system changes contribute to skin regeneration, improvement of its elasticity and ability to self-renew, which leads to improvement in its appearance.

Diabetes Treatment

Diabetes treatment with help of stem cell therapy results in significant enhancement of the patient's condition and improvement of clinical picture of the disease course. Our clinic has such experience of fetal stem cell administration at early stages of diabetes. Treatment with insulin is not required after it for a long time. After application of fetal stem cells, patients with diabetes mellitus observe normalization of hematological and immunological indices, reducing of manifestations of macro- and microangiopathy, restoration of working capacity and improvement of life quality. After our cell therapy, the progression of the disease slows down, remission periods become two or even three times longer. Fetal stem cell therapy is a great prevention of diabetes mellitus complications.

After the diabetes treatment with suspensions containing fetal stem cells, in 100% of patients the dose of administered insulin decreases. The main clinical effect develops within 2–3 months when the average initial insulin dose of 0,76 ± 0,06 units/ kg/ day decreases by 40-50%. In 85% of cases, our stem cell treatment of diabetes patients resulted in remission with exogenous insulin dose dropping by 35% within the first year after the therapy. Clinical remission of the disease in our patients lasts on average 16 months, which significantly reduces the risk of patients' disability and improves quality and length of their life.

In the first 6 months of disease, the patient feels the first symptoms because the pancreatic cells that produce insulin are attacked and destroyed. The patient can fight this disease with synthetic Insulin, but it is a silent killer, and over the years it damages eyes, organs and limbs. The fetal stem cell treatment pioneered by Dr. Smikodub Sr. is the first natural real treatment that stops the body’s autoimmune intervention and the damage of Beta cells.

Autism Treatment

Treatment with fetal stem cells gives the most positive results in most Autism patients in combination with medical intensive behavioral psychotherapy with the active participation of parents in the child's development. Persistent clinical effect lasts from 6 to 12 months. In some cases, every 2 years, patients should repeat fetal stem cell treatment .

As a result of the cell therapy in our patients are observed following improvements:

  1. The child has decreased aggression to himself and others; he becomes calmer, adequate;
  2. Decrease of abnormal reactions to sudden and loud sounds, as well as to bright light, the child becomes less anxious;
  3. Improves communication skills and interaction with others (eye contact, facial expression of emotions, gestures);
  4. The child becomes more cooperative, learns faster, it is easier for him to perceive the learning process;
  5. Reduces appearance of repetitive and stereotyped behavior, increases the range of interests
  6. Improves speech both receptive (understanding) and expressive (reproduction), decreases echolalia, appears progress in pronunciation of sounds and words, in a short time increases vocabulary;
  7. Reduces obsessive attachment to specific, nonfunctional actions or rituals;
  8. Reduces fatigue, the child is able to increase the time of learning; it is easier for him to tolerate travels and medical procedures;
  9. Diet of the child expands;
  10. As a result of more intensive training, the success in self-service and personal hygiene achieves quicker.

Testimonials

 

Patient L., born on 2007, was admitted to the clinic on March 5, 2012 with diagnosis "Smith-Magenis Syndrome".

Neurologist's examination:

The boy has developmental delay since the childhood. Mostly friendly, sometimes aggressive, reacts poorly to the word NO. Does not write or draw. Requests expresses through actions (leads parents to the place of his interest). Neurological status: conscious, smiles to the doctor, makes a peculiar sound (perhaps showing his satisfaction). Follows the instructions, sometimes on the second request. Independently walks around the ward, takes interest in subjects (bed details, lamps). The head is slightly deformed – flat on the back. Eye slots d=s. Pupils d=s. The range of motion of the eyeballs is full. Face asymmetry is not visible. Shows the tip of tongue - the tongue is in midline. Active movements of the limbs in full. No contractures of the joints. No significant changes in muscle tone. Deep reflexes are reduced, Achilles reflexes are not obtained. No pathological foot reflexes.

The patient underwent full 2-days treatment with use of preparation based on stem cells by the method of Prof. Smikodub. Follows the recommendations of post-treatment period. Under regular control of his neurologist and parents.

Letter of mother of Patient L. in six months after the treatment.

"During the first two months after treatment, no improvements were observed (or minimal improvements).
Now almost every day occur some changes in boy's development and behavior, he finds more things interesting, he became more independent, more emotional, he talks a lot in his own language.
Expresses the desire - when he wants something, he takes his mother's hand and with finger points to the thing (e.g., if he wants to walk, he points to shoes, etc.)
Changes in emotions - he expresses disappointment when his mother leaves him in a kindergarten, takes her hand (previously remained indifferent); he expresses more emotions to his parents.
Began to sing - without specific words, but it is clear that he is singing (as sing children, who cannot pronounce the words).
Twice he cried like a normal baby, earlier he only grizzled and mooed.
Started watching cartoons (previously he perceived only music from cartoons) – he can long-term and focused look at the screen, tries to finish the sentence.
Previously he did not come up the steps - now he can go upstairs holding on to the rail (downstairs - fears).
Sleep without waking up the whole night (before got up at 5 am).


Awards

The clinic has a license for all the methods of stem cell treatment developed by Alexander Smikodub Sr., Alexander Smikodub Jr., and its other specialists as part of EmCell Center. All the methods are protected by the patents of Ukraine, Russia, the USA and other countries. At present, a number of patent applications on fetal stem cell for different diseases and conditions treatment are pending in the patent offices of many countries. Patenting has always been a priority direction in the activity of UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC. Alexander Smikodub Sr. was the first person in the world to describe post-transplantation period after fetal stem cell treatment for such diseases as AIDS, HIV-infection, type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus, aplastic anemia, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative diseases of nervous system, inflammatory and cancer bowel diseases, etc.

In 1993, International Patent Application Examination Board in the Hague awarded Professor Smikodub’s patents level "A", that is absolutely innovative works.

In his patents Professor Smikodub described the possibility of treatment for a large number of diseases and conditions caused by or resulting in cell count reduction. We are most proud of Doctor Smikodub’s patents granted in the United States of America and the Netherlands.

Professor Smikodub was the first in the world to offer medicinal preparations based on fetal stem cells and mentioned this in his US, Dutch, Russian and Ukrainian patents. We believe that in the nearest future fetal cell suspensions in the form of medicinal preparations will be available in specialized drugstores for treatment in inpatient or outpatient departments.

This is a brand-new ideology of practical medicine when medical professional will issue prescription for purchasing cell composite consisting of HLA-free stem cells. It is them that will help to cope with illness- or age-related cell deficiency.

UNIQUE CELL TREATMENT CLINIC welcomes cooperation for the development of this idea.

Our scientific work belongs to the modern branch of science called cell therapy. We gave our definition of this branch of science. Cell therapy is the science about stem cells and their clinical application.



It was in the 1990’s that we realized that this was the science of the method. It is enough to see the main indication for its use − different cell count reduction resulted from the disease – and you can be sure that in this case cell therapy will be effective.

Almost all severe acquired and hereditary diseases cause destruction of actively functioning cells. Stem cells capable of proliferation (multiplication), differentiation (specialization) and morphogenesis (tissue formation) are effective for tissue and organ function and cell count restoration.

Stem cells of fetal origin are the most effective in achieving the above-mentioned effects as they have the highest proliferative potential. Our clinical observations have shown how unique the method is.

Since 1991, 7 MMS theses were written by postgraduate students and teachers of the Therapy Chair of the National Medical University of Ukraine for whom Professor Alexander Smikodub Sr. was a scientific advisor.

The range of our scientific interests has been wide: clinical researches and working out of treatment methods for type 1 and 2 diabetes mellitus, AIDS, HIV-infection, leukosis, aplastic anemia, primary and secondary thrombocytopenia, cytostatic myelodepression, oncological diseases, degenerative diseases of central nervous system, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, muscular dystrophies, thermal injuries of various localization; such conditions as menopause, infertility, aging, as well as functional disturbances of internal organs, chronic fatigue syndrome, application of fetal stem cell suspensions in surgical practice, etc.

Our specialists regularly attend international and national scientific conferences where they present reports and give lectures.

Location

Ukraine has become an alluring destination for medical tourists for a number of reasons. Its proximity to Europe and wonderful nature certainly plays its role. But it is not only that. Unique Slavic culture is of big interest to foreigners who are glad to get acquainted with the country they travel to. Many cultural venues can be visited in Kiev, the capital of the country. Bustling and busy city life with chic restaurants, spectacular architecture, excellent museums – all this can be found here. You can walk along its streets and enjoy the beautiful sights of the city. But what is more important than all this: there are excellent medical facilities of high class level while the service is reasonably priced. The reputation of Ukrainian specialists is increasing on the international arena. More and more medical research works of Ukrainian specialists are highly assessed by foreign colleagues. They can practice in state owned and private clinics. State owned clinics desperately lacks financing as a rule and people frequently prefer to apply there for quality treatment.

As international standards of treatment and care develop, foreign citizens like to come to Ukraine to receive treatment. The competitive prices become an additional factor in favor of treatment on Ukrainian land. But when famous internationally recognized doctors bring relief to thousands of incurable patients, this factor alongside with all others, makes Ukraine a special destination point for people from abroad. In this way they can receive treatment here that they can’t find in other place. All this can be said about clinic UCTC that is located in Kiev. The clinic specialized on fetal stem cell therapy (in vivo) and saves lives to all those who desperately strive for help. The first experience of this kind date back to 1994 but since that time thousands of people has improved their way of life. BBC documentary called this medical center «Last Hope Clinic» and it vividly reflects the attitude of many patients to this place.

Professor Alexander Smikodub Sr. dedicated his life to the research in this branch of medicine. His son followed his steps and patients from all over the world can be treated with fetal stem cell transplantation methods developed in this clinic. The results are striking and even the most hopeless cases can be cured here.

It is also great to recuperate in Ukraine after the patient receives necessary treatment. Fantastic mountains with its clear air and amazing sea in the South of the country offer much interesting for tourists. There is much to explore in Ukraine while excellent infrastructure is ready to accommodate guests with any budget.
