Cure being Medicine’s Holy Grail, Stem Cell Major GIOSTAR beacons Article by Medicare News

The Leading Indian American Company unveils in Bangalore to script amazing treatment outcomes

Bangalore/ New Delhi: With Indian American Stem Cell Major GIOSTAR-USA arriving in a mission mode to alleviate the sufferings and pain of sick people, words ‘Cure’ and ‘Anti-ageing’ are in Indian air. Its elegant hospital unveiled in Bangalore only this month has set the stage for India to witness amazing outcomes of stem cell therapy.

Headquartered in San Diego, California and powered by two illustrious Indians, Dr Anand Srivastava and Deven Patel, GIOSTAR (Global Institute of Stem Cell Research) with 20 plus years in the field is a cut above the rest among stem cell research and therapy players in the world. The hospital was inaugurated by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar on October 17, 2021, equating stem cell scientists as versions of Brahma for their power to regenerate damaged organs.

Sample this: In a world first, in April 2020, FDA (Food & Drug Administration) in USA gave emergency use authorization to GIOSTAR for using stem cell therapy for repairing damaged lungs from COVID infection which proved lifesaving at a time when vaccine was not there and treatment protocol seemed like stabbing in the dark. It is one of the first stem cell research institutes to achieve this distinction in USA. It is a great measure of GIOSTAR’s credibility and speaks a volume about GIOSTAR’s standing in the realm of stem cell research and therapy (also named regenerative medicine).

Talking to Medicare News, Dr Anand Srivastava, Chairman of GIOSTAR and a globally acclaimed preeminent stem cell scientist elaborated on treatment of COVID patients and said ‘We wrote to FDA for emergency use authorization claiming we could save people who were dying due to COVID- damaged lungs. Thankfully, we got it and saved several people, making headlines in America in the midst of killing spree of the pandemic. We wanted to save people in India as well and so spoke to Indian regulators but our words fell on deaf ears.’

If cure is the holy grail of medicine, GIOSTAR’s quest is catching up fast. In mainstream medicine, ailments are only managed with lifelong need to take medicines. Complete cure of ailments is what makes drugless and non- invasive stem cell therapy a very attractive proposition. With GIOSTAR going whole hog into creating stem cells banks and doing clinical trials in right earnest, the patients despairing to rid of terminal illnesses may soon start seeing light at the end of dark tunnel in India.

GIOSTAR, which already has amazing treatment success stories to flaunt, is all set to bring a paradigm shift in the way the treatments are delivered in India. If you take Dr Anand Srivastava’s deep and unlimited devotion to Hanuman, the much-revered Hindu God, you might as well say he is endowed with ‘Sanjivani’ for hapless patients on the verge of death. Stem Cell therapy promises to regenerate and repair kidney, heart, liver, eyes, brain, and what not. Thanks to Stem cells, Kidney and Liver transplant, knee replacement and many other procedures of treatment might be thing of the past in times to come.

Dr Srivastava adds- ‘Healing at the cellular level is the real treatment resulting into complete cure. GIOSTAR is well equipped to script such cures. Stem cell therapy is no more in the nascent experimental stage. It has come of age and it is high time to harness stem cell products to treat illnesses so far regarded incurable. It is very much possible now to treat with felicity stroke, traumatic brain injuries, Autism, Parkinson, Alzheimer, multiple sclerosis, glaucoma, cerebral palsy, myocardial infraction, diabetes, autoimmune disease like Crohn’s disease, liver diseases.’

Dr Srivastava has many laurels and firsts to his credit, well documented in prestigious medical journals, namely, making universal (O-negative) blood in 2003 by stem cells, proving for the first time ever in 2005 that brain damage could be repaired with stem cells, to name but a few. The clinical trials being taken up by GIOSTAR in Bangalore and in America may open a new exciting chapter in Medicine.

Talking to Medicare News, Deven Patel, President, CEO & Cofounder, said, ‘GIOSTAR’s mission is to facilitate affordable stem cell therapy to the masses. The company is all set to herald an age when people will go to chemist shop to get a vial of stem cell product over the counter to get it infused in body like we do with glucose. And lo and behold! you recover without using any drug and resultant side effects. We are pioneers in stem cell science. Anti- ageing, which is most sought-after dream of all and sundry, is GIOSTARS’s hard earned craft and I am the living example of it.’

Deven Patel said the company is going to establish GIOSTAR hospitals in every metropolis of India. He further added GIOSTAR, a much sought-after stem cell institutes, will be in every continent as well in very near future. Mr Patel added GIOSTAR is going to begin clinical trials on stem cells applications. The clinical trial areas are Post COVID complications, diabetes, auto immune diseases, Cancer, Vaccine Alzheimer and most important of all, the universal donor O-(negative)Blood that GIOSTAR has created with the help of stem cells.

America has achieved stem cell science superiority by spending billions of dollars with the help of chosen stem cell scientists. Dr Anand Srivastava is one of them and regarded as pioneer and power house of Stem Cell knowledge. According to Deven Patel, India can have those accomplishments of USA just for an asking and can assume leadership role. Thankfully, GIOSTAR has got the ears of PM Narendra Modi. It is to be noted that GIOSTAR hospital in Ahmedabad was inaugurated by PM Modi when he was CM of Gujrat in 2011 and MOU was signed in 2009 in Vibrant Gujrat. Gurudev Sri Sri Ravishankar also graced the occasion that time.  With GIOSTAR as partner, a huge stem cell hospital is in the making in Surat on the line of PPP model and several states have signed MOU with GIOSTAR for similar projects to establish most advanced stem cell research and treatment institutes for better health of millions in India.

Summing up, it might take some time for stem cell therapy to become mainstream medicine but the huge potential of stem cells is a fait accompli. Alarmed, pharmaceutical companies have buying stem cell companies to monopolise it.

Top 10 Influential Entrepreneurs in Healthcare 2021

Top 10 Influential Entrepreneurs in Healthcare 2021

GIOSTAR is a San Diego, California-based organization led by Dr. Anand Srivastava and Deven Patel. Dr. Srivastava has held scientific positions at leading universities and research institutions in the United States, such as the University of California Irvine and UC Los Angeles, along with the following San Diego-based institutions: Salk Institute for Biological Studies, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute. He has authored more than 100 scientific publications, and is widely regarded as the “father of stem cell science.” Under his leadership, GIOSTAR has been one of the pioneers in the field of stem cell therapy. Few in the scientific community were willing to accept the therapeutic efficacy of stem cells, despite the publication of numerous studies providing supporting evidence. In contrast to these skeptics, GIOSTAR joined the leading groups of scientists and researchers in embracing the science and sought to build upon its compendium of findings.

GIOSTAR’s vision is to provide its scientific and medical expertise to establish the most advanced stem cell therapy and research institutes around the world. The company actively seeks public and private sector investors to help deliver stem cell-based therapies to people suffering from degenerative or genetic diseases. GIOSTAR is in the process of expanding its operations in the US, India, China, Thailand, Philippines, Japan, Australia, Singapore, Brazil, Bahamas, and a few more countries.

What were the constraints you faced at the time of inception?

GIOSTAR faced several ethical and financial constraints at the inception of the company, and for a few years thereafter. As the primary findings in the field were based on embryonic stem cells, social and ethical groups vehemently opposed the use of stem cells for research and therapy. These objections culminated in restrictions on fundings from government agencies. However, scientists demonstrated that stem cells could be isolated from adult tissues, paving the way for extensive research and the application of the science for therapeutic purposes. Since most of the therapeutic interventions in conventional medicine are palliative (i.e., they only help manage symptoms), it was difficult for people to accept that any therapy could be curative, a capability uniquely afforded by stem cells.

What unique services do you provide to the customers?

GIOSTAR has several unique characteristics that distinguish us from our peers. Our Institute has been the pioneer in the research field of stem cell science, with a firm commitment to staying abreast of the latest developments with this technology. Second, we want to offer our patients comprehensive therapeutic help, which is thoroughly tested in our numerous clinics. Finally, our services are rooted in an altruistic, humanitarian mission to help the masses, as opposed to an opportunistic quest to derive monetary gain from patients’ suffering.

Why should one prefer you?

GIOSTAR delivers therapies that are customized to each patient’s health conditions, grounded in decades of logical, scientific research. We evaluate the body as a cohesive unit, as opposed to a disjointed collection of organs and ailments. This holistic perspective enables us to devise and deliver the most effective therapies.

What personality traits and capabilities do you believe are required to enhance and promote health solution providing services?

Certain characteristics are essential for success in any field. Healthcare, in particular, requires that its practitioners possess an unyielding dedication to the well-being of all humans. GIOSTAR takes this commitment very seriously and approaches healthcare in a highly integrated manner, as opposed to the traditional compartmentalized perspective. This practice, coupled with the use of stem cells, enables us to devise the most effective therapies to manage the myriad of health problems of our patients. Share about your journey from the beginning. Our professional journey began with the recognition of the potential for stem cells to serve as a highly effective therapeutic agent for treating several degenerative diseases. In beginning, our firm had to overcome a great deal of skepticism about the efficacy of this GIOSTAR Influential Entrepreneurs in Healthcare, Top 10 2021 Dr. Anand Srivastava Chairman & Co-founder technology. However, scientists and those in the general community alike began expressing great enthusiasm after experiencing the therapeutic wonders of science first-hand. This led to GIOSTAR and other leading stem cell institutions receiving steadily increasing recognition.

How do you manage the promotion of your project through social media outreach and email campaigns?

GIOSTAR relies primarily on word-of-mouth referrals to augment our patient base. After they experience dramatic positive results following the treatments in our global facilities, patients frequently refer friends, family members, and other loved ones to GIOSTAR. Given our impressive success rate, they feel that our firm is uniquely positioned to provide therapeutic benefit to those suffering from the most debilitating disorders.

What do you think about the expansion of GIOSTAR? What will be the plan?

At present, our clinics are in India and Mexico. We are in negotiations with business groups for further expansion in Japan, Thailand, South Africa, and several other countries.

How do you see the future of healthcare in nearby times?

A thorough re-evaluation of our medical system is needed, on numerous fronts: Financial. The cost of training medical professionals is increasing exponentially every year, which may result in a severe shortage of well-trained medical professionals. Coupled with the exorbitant investments required for developing new therapeutic agents, effective medical care will likely become cost prohibitive for most patients. Holistic Approach. Currently, healthcare in the United States is focused primarily on interventions that “buy some time” for the body to heal; in other words, not many interventions are truly curative. Therapies are currently geared toward specific diseases and treat organs as individual, disconnected compartments of the body. Because of this narrow focus, modern medicine has been ineffective in treating metabolic diseases. Healthcare professionals should instead view the entire body as a unit, and devise therapies accordingly; this approach will pave the way for cures for metabolic diseases. As we know, cells are the unit of life and stem cells are the master cells. Hence, these cells are aptly suited to repair damaged organs in a very holistic manner. In our scientific view, stem cells are the least expensive and the best way to manage several metabolic diseases.

Can you describe emerging trends you noticed HEALTHCARE industry?

The most significant change we’ve observed in healthcare is the super specialization of medical professionals. The side effects of the trend of superspecialization are adversely affecting the availability of health care personnel as so super-specialized persons may be fewer and fewer. Additionally, the extensive investment of time and money into super-specialized training will likely dissuade intelligent, capable individuals from entering the health care profession. In addition, clinicians are inclining more towards the holistic approach to managing a metabolic disease and not treating a disease just blocking a signaling pathway which often comes up with several side effects.

Please tell us if there is an effective solution to the current COVID-19 scenario? Coronavirus, which causes COVID-19, induces severe inflammation and lung damage. This can be effectively managed by using a specific category of stem cells known as mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). These cells are well-known for their capabilities for immunomodulatory function and tissue regeneration, thus providing a two-pronged approach for battling COVID-19. Therefore, MSCs provide the best clinical option for managing COVID-19 symptoms and related organ damage. Based on these facts, GIOSTAR procured approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for using stem cells for COVID-19 patients under the FDA “expanded access for compassionate use” program. The company was then able to successfully treat patients who were gravely ill with the disease.
