In treating infertile women, stem cells are Eureka moment
New Delhi: For 42 years old Kanpur woman, it was a veritable ‘Eureka’ moment, thanks to injection of her own stem cells. She found her bundle of joy after 14 years of a wild goose chase.

This is the place inside womb where the embryo clings and is nurtured.

Not that she is the sole example of efficacy of stem cell. I have successfully done this in over 50 women having same deficiencies as that of Kiran in Mohali, Gurgaon , Chandigarh, Faridabad and some other cities.’
Dr. Mishra, CEO of StemGenn Therapeutics, the company that specialises in retrieval of best quality stem cells, further said, ‘Kiran had defects in ovary and endometrium. The thickness of her endometrium never reached more than 3 mm which ideally should be 6 to 8mm. She got wind of stem cells therapy from some doctor. As a last refuge, I was connected with her IVF specialist to whom I narrated stem cell therapy relevance in her case. That doctor took 6 months of time to ascertain the claim. He also participated in one of my stem cell conferences. After a couple of months, the doctor came with the couple. I extracted stem cells from Kiran’s blood and started treatment. ’
Dr. Mishra, the founder of Anti ageing Foundation, added, ‘Just after 3 weeks, changes started coming in endometrium and it attained the requisite thickness in no time. Her B-hCG was around 1300. Her ovary defect was also gone due to stem cell injection. She got pregnant and it stayed. I have initiated stem cell applications for infertility treatment with many gynaecologists. Stem cells and Plasma Rich Platelets (PRP) have a major role’
Dr. Hrishikesh Pai, the Mumbai based doyen of test tube baby procedure IVF in India, who was in Delhi for world Population Day function in Vigyan Bhavan, also vouched for the efficacy of stem cells in infertility treatment. He said to Medicare News in no uncertain terms, ‘Stem cell therapy is effective in infertility, really effective.’
