Introduction to Stem Cells Treatment for Children

Even though most stem cell clinics sprouting up all over the land will not do stem cell therapy in patients under 18 years of age, kids can benefit from stem cells, too.


Listen to your pediatrician. But do your own research as well. And trust your instinct. Patient heal thyself is the stem cell mantra. But that’s kind of difficult to apply when it comes to kids.

Help your child. He or she cannot help them self.


First, a little background and clarification. Children like adults also have what are called adult stem cells.

Second, the great science of wellness in children known as pediatrics also concerns itself with a few actual illnesses. And even though pediatricians aren’t getting much involved in stem cell therapy, the greatest pediatricians of them all, moms and dads, are successfully finding their way to the stem cell clinics that won’t turn them away. So, maybe our kids will get this spectacular care despite ourselves.

Stem cells help children afflicted by two main groups of illnesses: all of the inflammatory disorders; and, interestingly, all of the non-inflammatory disease states produced by toxins, especially those that block brain development, especially autism.

Stem cell penetration to areas of inflammation depends on many things, but nothing more than, one, the degree of vascularity in the areas, of course compromised where there is inflammation, and two, the strength of the stem cells themselves. These two important rate limiting steps apply to children as well. Fortunately for children with childhood disorders that are inflammatory, the younger the adult stem cell, the stronger it is at penetrating into poorly vascularized areas of inflammation. Also, the younger the adult stem cell of the young child, the better it penetrates the blood brain barrier. As a result of both of these things, children respond really nicely to stem cells. But they especially respond to stem cells if there are underlying condition requires that the stem cells penetrate the blood brain barrier. Thus, neurologic disorders of childhood are great candidates for benefiting from stem cell therapy in children. And things go better the younger the child is.

But super young children don’t have as much fat to harvest from.

Children like anyone who receives their own adult stem cells may receive stem cells from them self in what is called autologous care. But if they don’t have that much fat to harvest, they also routinely receive stem cells from a mother or father in what is known as allogenic care.

Adult stem cells from the kid itself or from a parent provide great relief for many pediatric disorders, both inflammatory and non-inflammatory if it involved a toxin and the brain. It’s important to mention that really only two groups of illnesses should not be treated by stem cells in children. One, congenital disorders are not likely to benefit. And two, cancer is really off the table for adult stem cell therapy in children like adults.


There’s probably nothing in life that I’ve seen that warms my heart as much as an image I’ve seen so much lately: a mom sterilely draped, belly down, and getting punctured and scraped for the sake of liposuction harvesting of her adipose stem cells in order to help her child thrive.

But just as heartening is the feeling I get when I see a child that has had stem cells already voluntarily extending his own arm out for care willingly because he knows how much good it’s done him and his family already.

Whether a child has a behavioral disorder produced by a poorly developed brain that resulted from some toxin, or something inflammatory in or outside the central nervous system that’s crippled the child’s basic physiology, I am still allowed to only offer it as my opinion that adult stem cells are saving children’s lives emotionally, socially, and physically.

So, you have to make your own conclusions. Dr. Davie Allingham M.D. & Pediatrician
