Dr. Sagar Jawale performed India's first intrapancreatic stem cell therapy for Type 2 diabetes. Generally, stem cells are only put into the blood. Since pancreas gets only 2% of blood volume, it gets only 2 % of cells put into the blood.
Dr. Kiran Patil, interventional radiologist cannulated the pancreatic artery in cath lab and infused stem cells directly into pancreas with his guidance. With this method the pancreas gets 90-95 % cells. Stem cells were harvested from patient's own 150 ml bone marrow and transplanted within 3 hours.
Such a therapy is 30-50 times more powerful than putting cells into blood. This 20-year-old patient who's blood sugar was 450 despite 50 units of Insulin has gained 5 kg weight gain in just 6 weeks and sugar levels dropped from 450 to 150 in that period. He also gained back his energy levels to pre-diabetic stage.
