Unique Cell Treatment Clinic (UCTC): Stem cell treatment in Kiev, Ukraine

Unique Cell Treatment Clinic (UCTC) in Kiev, Ukraine is a well-established and pioneering stem cell clinic offering licensed and patented fetal stem cell therapies aimed at combating a range of acquired and hereditary conditions including ALS, muscular dystrophy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, autism, coronary artery disease, liver diseases and ageing.

Established in 1992 by stem cell pioneer Professor Alexander Smikodub Sr. and now run by his son Alexander Smikodub Jr. MD, UCTC is recognised worldwide for its innovative research, unique treatment methods and success in managing severe clinical cases. With over 20 patents and a respected body of scientific work, the clinic has to date administered fetal stem cell therapy to over 6500 patients with significantly positive results.

Stem cell treatments at UCTC

Combining fetal stem cell treatments with conventional therapies, UCTC offers a range of treatment protocols aimed at combating a range of diseases and conditions:

  • AIDS/HIV – Patented by Professor Alexander Smikodub, the UCTC stem cell treatment for AIDS/HIV is a viable alternative to modern antiviral therapy, particularly in cases where there is poor tolerability to drug treatment.
  • ALS  – UCTC has long-standing experience in the management of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and motor neurone disease with fetal stem cell therapy, helping to restore function, improve life quality and prolong life, especially if treatment begins in the early stages of the disease.
  • Alzheimer’s disease – Fetal stem cell therapy for Alzheimer’s disease at UCTC is aimed at restoring lost and damaged nerve cells, as well as boosting the immune system. Treatment outcomes depend on the initial condition of the patient but improvements in memory, spatial awareness, cognition and visual perception are expected.
  • Anaemia – UCTC offers a unique stem cell treatment for anaemia of all types developed by Professor Smikodub and his team in the mid-90s. Fetal stem cells effectively restore the haematopoietic system and can be a serious alternative to blood transfusion when this method is not effective or possible.
  • Anti-ageing – Patients of any age can undergo anti-ageing therapy at UCTC aimed at restoring a range of vital body functions, balancing hormones, adjusting metabolism and improving the nutrition and blood supply of tissues and organs.
  • Arterial hypertension – Fetal stem cell therapy produces a marked positive effect in the treatment of elevated blood pressure, with patients reporting stabilisation and normalisation of blood pressure and sleep, disappearance of headache, improved mental acuity and sexual potency, and return of vitality.
  • Autism – Stem cell treatment for autism at UCTC is aimed at restoration of damaged neurons and correction of the immune system. Recognising the need for long-term treatment and recovery, the clinic has achieved good results for this condition, as well as for diseases such as cerebral palsy, delayed psychomotor and speech development and organic brain damage.
  • Coronary heart disease – Fetal stem cells have been found to have marked positive effects in the treatment of coronary heart disease, particularly in cases of myocardial infarction and angina. Clinical improvements observed at UCTC include a reduction in the frequency and severity of angina attacks, decrease in heart failure symptoms, the appearance of new areas of healthy myocardial tissue and the development of an additional microcirculatory bloodstream.
  • Diabetes – UCTC has developed a comprehensive treatment regime for diabetes based on fetal stem cells aimed at restoring the synthesis and release of insulin, eliminating the autoimmune component of the disease, stimulating the body’s own capacity for regeneration and repair of damaged tissues and stimulating the renewal of the innermost layer of the blood vessels (intima).
  • Liver diseases – The specialists at UCTC have been developing and applying effective methods for the treatment of liver diseases such as hepatitis and cirrhosis for over 20 years. Using stem cell therapy in combination with the latest conventional therapies such as antiretroviral therapies and interferon and the clinic reports significant improvements in the overall condition and quality of life of many patients.
  • Muscular dystrophy – UCTC has achieved significant results in the treatment of muscular dystrophy and other types of myopathy with fetal stem cells, with patients enjoying dramatically improved quality of life and prolonged lives.
  • Multiple sclerosis – At UCTC, stem cell treatment for multiple sclerosis is aimed at restoring the myelin sheaths of the nerve fibres, restoring the damaged neurons and correcting the immune system. The effectiveness of the treatment is dependent on the initial condition of the patient and the rate of disease progression, with the most rapid results seen when treatment is started after an initial attack. Changes observed include reduction in fatigue, improvement of motor functions and co-ordination, reduction of dizziness and unsteadiness when walking, and improvement in vision, speech, smell and hearing.
  • Parkinson’s disease – Professor Smikodub’s stem cell treatment for Parkinson’s disease is designed to improve the nerve system and normalise the immune system. The treatment aims to improve the general health of the patient and positively influence their quality of life.
  • Ulcerative colitis – The immune system-correcting properties of fetal stem cell therapy play an important role in the treatment of severe autoimmune diseases such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. UCTC have developed their own treatment protocols for these conditions and have reported remarkable results in this field.
  • Spinal muscular atrophy – UCTC offer fetal stem cell transplantation aimed at managing and improving the lives of children with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).
  • Optic nerve atrophy - Fetal stem cells are able to regenerate damaged areas through the production of various growth factors and key metabolites, stimulate regeneration of capillaries – blood vessels grow into the optic nerve and normalise its capillary circulation. Improvement of microcirculation reduces atrophy of the optic nerve, which leads to improvement or stabilisation of visual functions.
  • Hearing disorders - Hearing disorders as a rule mean the problems connected with the trophic (blood supply) of the auditory organ and destruction of sensory neurons (hair cells) in the cochlea, that leads to the disruption of the generating process of nerve impulses in response to the sound stimulus. Administrated fetal stem cells, being an undifferentiated element, are able to transform into hair cells and thereby contribute to a significant improvement in hearing.

Getting treatment

Located in Ukraine’s capital city, Kiev, UCTC welcomes patients from across the world and specialises in treating patients with severe and incurable conditions.

Patients can contact their local representative for more information or request a free consultation with the clinic’s specialists via Skype.
