Dr. Geeta Shroff

Based in Delhi, India, Dr. Geeta Shroff operates out of two hospitals:• The original Nu Tech Mediworld hospital based in Gautam Nagar, Delhi is a 20-bed facility• A brand new five-story, 20-bed hospital located in Green Park Extension, Delhi (which is approximately five minutes by vehicle from the original hospital).Dr. Shroff’s Embryonic Stem Cell TechnologyDr. Shroff is an infertility expert and she is the very first individual to develop an infinite number of pure human embryonic stem cell lines fromusing just one embryo. Her partnering physician and anesthesiologist is Dr. Ashish Verma.Dr. Shroff’s treatment is ground breaking. Every day we hear about other treatments around the globe regarding stem cells (fetal, umbilical cord, nasal, rats, mice etc.) and Dr. Geeta Shroff has developed the only purely human embryonic stem cell lines that do not show any immune reaction in the body. Embryonic stem cells do not have any antigenic proteins on their surface and thus do not require immunosuppressant drugs. Dr. Shroff’s technology involved the use of just ONE embryo. During her laboratory research she only used surplus embryos from an IVF donor who underwent a barrage of tests including a complex medical history and genetic history.I (Amanda Boxtel) will provide my best explanation of Dr. Shroff’s HESC Treatment below.The text is partially extracted from Dr. Shroff’s book Human Embryonic Stem Cells: A Revolution in Therapeutics. In the laboratory, the sperm fertilizes an egg, which then becomes a zygote. These stem cells have the highest degree of plasticity and can develop into any cell, not only into an embryo, but also the surrounding tissues, such as the placenta. The term used to refer to these stem cells is totipotent. Thirty hours after an ovum is fertilized, the zygote begins to divide. By the fifth or sixth day, the cells form a blastocyst. These stem cells are somewhat less plastic and more specialized than the zygote. Those on the outer surface of the blastocyst develop into the placenta and other tissues that surround the fetus, while those inside, referred to as embryonic stem cells, become the cells of all the fetal organs and tissues. Such stem cells can differentiate into any of the more than 200 types of cells in the body and are referred to as pluripotent. The embryonic stem cells do not show any immune reaction as they do not have antigenic proteins on their surface. They also are able to multiply rapidly.Dr. Shroff’s revolutionary and highly secretive technology enabled her to develop a method to extract these embryonic stem cells and create stem lines in a totally pure human product. An example of a stem line created in the lab is a neuronal (nerve cell) stem line. A patient with a neuronal disorder affecting the brain, spinal cord, or nerves would be administered neuronal embryonic stem cells from a neuronal stem line. Stem lines created in the lab have homing-in capabilities so that once they are injected into the body, they home-in to the injury site, or damaged cells that need repair.When injected, HESCs can repair the affected area in addition to restoring the physiological functions of the affected area. HESCs have no capacity to fully form a new organ. Once HESCs are injected into a patient, the division of the HESCs is finite, which means over a period of time uncontrolled division is not going to form tumors. Over five years of treatment, Dr. Shroff and Dr. Ashish Verma have not found any negative side effects in their patients. In simple terms it can be said that the complete effect of HESCs transplanted into a patient is closely linked with the time frame of the human embryo’s development. This is including nine months of gestation; and then the growth of a new born baby after delivery up until five years of age. After the baby is delivered, the functioning capacity gradually increases as it would in a growing child. Milestones take place in a newborn growing into an infant and critical functions are required for the child to progress such as environmental factors, physical (motor) factors, and educational factors (learned mental development). Although response results in patients are seen immediately after transplantation, the embryonic stem cells continue their developmental process as per their pre-programmed time frame.In my case scenario, I might be experiencing slight changes in my body now, but as the stem cells “home in” to the injury site in my body, they differentiate and fire up the affected tissue and their neurons find new pathways to reconnect the synapses and the damaged tracts. I will have to be patient with my treatment in that I may not see results for several months or even two-to-five years down the road.All of Dr. Shroff’s patients generally become healthier and suffer fewer bouts of infection. Their body resistance to infection increases. The earlier a patient starts the human embryonic stem cell therapy, the faster the chances are for recovery (I have 15 years to work on as opposed to others who are more newly injured). In progressive and degenerative disorders the early start on stem cell therapy helps in stemming the disease or stabilizing the patient. Once stabilized, patients do show improvement.Every patient I met in the course of my two month stay showed improvement of some sort. In addition to showing improvement, amazingly, people looked younger. A Parkinson’s patient named David from Perth, Australia, grew dark eyebrows in three weeks; his eyes became sparkly; and his speech came back with a thick English accent, which his care giver hadn’t heard in sixteen years. It was simply remarkable to roll into the hospital everyday and exchange stories on what muscle or body part was beginning to function again… something unheard of until my visit to Nu Tech Mediworld in India. I witnessed three patients suffering from motor neuron disease (like ALS) and had been given a few months to live. With all three patients, they are stable, their condition isn’t worsening, and they are seeing slight improvements (regaining speech, strength, breathing capacity etc).I met many other patients from around the globe. Several were from Australia, three families were from Hong Kong, and other families came from Iran, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, and Korea. The patients’ illnesses or disabilities ranged from Spinal Cord Injuries; Parkinsons; Stroke/Alzheimers; Motor Neuron Disease/ALS; to Diabetes/blind. Some of Dr. Shroff’s other Indian patients suffer from Cerebral Palsy, autism, heart conditions, traumatic brain injuries, and cancer to name a few.It should be known that Dr. Shroff seeks no financial gain from her treatment beyond her hard financial costs. US $30,000 for a two month treatment (which included accommodations for me and a care giver) is appropriate given the cost of medical treatment around the world. It should also be stated that Dr. Shroff provides free treatment to the majority of her Indian patients (80% approx.) who have absolutely no money. I am not sure if she has a scholarship program with a sliding scale in place… or if Dr. Shroff might consider this option for future patients residing outside India.The human embryonic stem cell treatment has been used in a number of conditions in clinical trials. All have shown progress of some kind. To name a few: Autism; mental retardation; liver disorders; degenerative nervous system disorders: alzheimers, parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, motor neuron disease/ALS; cerebral palsy; traumatic brain injuries; various skin disorders; auto immune disorders—lupus; genetic disorders—down syndrome etc.; eye disorders; kidney disorders; musculoskeleta
l disorders—Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy etc.; spinal cord injuries; and cardiacpatients.Counter to research and opinions worldwide, Dr. Shroff’s technology avoidscontroversial and ethical issues:By using ONLY one human embryo to create innumerable stem lines that are pure, thus negating the use and destruction of many human embryos; cloning procedures; or the use of any animal stem cells such as those found in mice or rats. Human embryonic stem cells do not create any immune reaction in the body, as they do not have any antigenic proteins on their surface. This negates the need for immunosuppressant drugs. Human embryonic stem cells have the highest degree of plasticity and are ‘pluripotent’ meaning they have the capability to differentiate into any of the more than 200 types of cells in the human body (including all blood types). Both fetal stem cells and adult stem cells under the right circumstance can be pluripotent if they are derived from the donor’s own body. The possible challenges of immune reactivity make these cells impossible to be used in auto-immune disorders.To my knowledge Dr. Shroff is the only person in the world who has conducted successful clinical applications on humans since the year 2002 on over 300 patients suffering from incurable ailments with zero adverse reactions. Dr. Shroff has filed for a patent in both India and the United States, which covers 126 countries. It is out of her hands and she is waiting for their response.With my layperson’s understanding, part of Dr. Shroff’s battle with medical communities andworldwide pharmaceutical companies comes down to the financial factor of those companieslosing money. Billions of dollars are spent with drugs to band-aid treatments, and Dr. Shroffhas the ultimate cure for many illnesses. Dr. Shroff does not claim to be an expert in every fieldbut has specialized in infertility and stem cell treatment. She is a humble yet brilliant individual who will not allow such adversities to affect either her or her mission.I encourage you to do your own research, see with your own eyes, and you too will be amazed by what is happening. I and many others are living proof that her treatment is working!

    Hi,

    My brother was injured yesterday in a water tubing accident he has a C5 injury he broke his neck in 3 places and his back in 6 places. He had no feeling until today in his hands he can squeeze with both hands now and feel when you touch his fingers. The doctors told us yesterday he would 100% never walk again. Now today the doctors are saying we can’t rule out that he will never walk again. I was telling my sister about stem cells and everything and i have read rusty’s story and I see the prgogress he has made after the surgery and I am printing all this stuff up but my question would be how long after the injury can my brother have this done so maybe he could get some feeling back. Keep up the good work as i keep supporting stem cell research here in the united states

    Thank you for introducing us to Dr. Schroff and enlightening us on her achievements with Stem Cell therapty/treatment. I have been praying for this information for years. I do a lot of research on the topic of Optic Atrophy (deterioration of optic nerve), a heeditary disease which I was diagnosed w/in 1997 at Johns Hopkins. I would like to support Dr. Schroff’s research and treatment through payroll contributions, as well as be evaluated for treatment myself. My quality life is slowly slipping away, and depression is settling in. I do not have anyone willing to help me adjust or manage day-to-day. If I can be treated and my eyesight is improved or restored (even if only in one eye) , I will saccrifise and devote my time for others in need of assistance or companionship and help improve their quality of life. Thank you so much for your time. -Lauren Thomas, Maryland USA

    You must always have hope, hope that some day someone will develop a treatment which directly benefits you and your condition. If you are considering stem cell treatments I advise you to do a lot of research before making this decision. There are many individuals and companies offering to treat you with stem cell injections and such, but most of them are just after your money and they prey on the desparate people around the world who are looking for help and “miracles” for their conditions. You can contact Dr. Geeta Shroff(embryonic stem cell treatments in India) at; geetashroff@hotmail.com Be ready to give her your complete medical history as far as the spinal cord injury is involved. There is a link on my blog to her, use it. Dr. Shroff will evaluate your condition and either offer to treat you or not. Good luck with whatever you decide and if you need further assistance don’t hesitant to contact me.

    Hello Dr. Shroff my name is Sean Trotter. I suffered a SCI in 1999 to the L3 vertebrae and am an incomplete parapalegic. I am paralized below my knees but can walk well with a cane and am very active. Recently some friends have told me they would like to help me get stemcell treatment if it turns out i am a suitable candidate. After reading about what u do for people online i am very interested in talking with you further and seeing if you may be able to help me. I can be reached by phone at 6043566446 or by email at stilhere.st@gmail.com. Thank you for your consideration,
