Stem Cell Therapy for Kidney Failure in Malaysia (Updated September 2020)

Stem cell therapy for kidney failure or Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in Malaysia is an ongoing topic of research and is considered experimental by the medical community. Patients can find fee-for-service clinics that advertise stem cell therapy for kidney failure, but most of these clinics promote their own approach, which creates a lot of confusion among patients about how to compare their treatment options. There are more than 650 published studies related to the use of stem cells and kidney disease and more than 300 published studies related to stem cells and kidney failure.

Several clinical trials have confirmed the safety and tolerability of stem cells, and in particular of MSC-based therapies (Mesenchymal Stem Cell), in patients with renal diseases and kidney transplants (Int J of Mol Sci. 2019).

This year alone (2020), there are more than 80 publications published on "stem cell and kidney disease" on the National Library of Medicine (PubMed). Clinical trials have been performed to demonstrate safety and efficacy of stem cells autism management.

As of Spetember 2020, more than 100 studies have been launched to investigate the potential of stem cell therapy for kidney disease under the U.S. Clinical Trial Registry. You can search the database to look for more details of the clinical trials including the countries and centres that are conducting them.

Cost of Stem Cell Therapy for Kidney Failure in Malaysia 

As a guide, the cost of mesenchymal stem cells in Malaysia may cost from RM 50,000 to RM 80,000 (USD 14,300) for 100 million cells.

For 50 million cells, the cost will vary from RM 30,000 to RM 45,000 depending on the centers.

The total cost will vary depending on the number of cells used, no. of sessions, laboratory investigations, facilities and the doctors' fee.

Please take note that stem cell therapy for kidney failure is not a simple procedure where you get someone to inject a vial of stem cells into the vein. It requires a pre-assessment by a medical specialist i.e. nephrologist to assess whether stem cell therapy is suitable for you and also the mode of administration may require the stem cells to be injected directly into the right blood vessel with the guidance of real-time imaging device.

Cautionary Remarks 

Stem cell therapy for kidney failure is a new and is under on-going research. When a clinic gives you promises that you will see gains, and/or claims that the same stem cell therapy can cure everything, run! In real medicine, results are not guaranteed and there are no cure-alls. Be wary of advice from non-qualified people who have “done their research” by watching YouTube videos. Real research is published in peer-reviewed journals, and you can search the journals via PubMed or Google Scholar.
