n 1999 Ukrainian Parliament approved Law of Ukraine ?About the Transplantation of Organs and Other Anatomical Structures to
Human? that regulates the application of fetal stem cells in treatment of people in severe disease conditions. From those moment
were conducted dozens of preclinical study and clinical trials on the efficacy of fetal stem cells transplantation in diseases of the heart
and vascular, liver and kidney, endocrine and nervous system, blood diseases and pathology of immune system, skin, connective tissue
and bones diseases, eye diseases and disturbance in hearing, pathology of stomach and intestine, pancreas and likewise treatment of
reproductive system dysfunction.
This Law reviews introduction of fetal stem cells into body as transplantation, and the cells themselves as graft. Clinical trials conducted
not by the schedule of implementation for pharmacological drugs, but by protocols of clinical trials of the organ transplantation i.e.
first (introduction of cells to healthy people) and fourth (analysis of massive number of observation by their results of multicenter
trials) phases of clinical trials are absent. As the result in short period of time developed and implemented in clinical practical the
biotechnological methods of treatment in myocardial infarction (introduction of fetal stem cells in the zone of infarction and hibernating
myocardium with the help of navigation system NOGA), pancreonecrosis (with the use of differentiating potential of mesenchymal stem
cells from Wharton jelly to obliterate the open flow of pancreatic duct), diabetes mellitus I and II types, chronic ischemia of the lower
limb, secretory and endocrine male forms of infertility, impotency, degenerative diseases of the nervous system, arterial hypertension,
liver cirrhosis and many other diseases.
The indications and contra-indications (absolute and relative) developed were to application of stem cells for treatment of human diseases.
Principles of deontology and medical ethics in regenerative medicine using fetal stem cells were determined. The period of treating
diseases with the help of regenerative medicine, their dozes, frequencies of introduction, possible complications and side effects were
established. Passports of fetal stem cells providing their biological safety were developed. Scientists of Ukraine are open for collaboration
and ready to share their experiences of development in regenerative medicine using fetal stem cells
