The Father of Modern Cell Therapy
Prof. Dr. Med. Albert Landsberger
- Professor of anatomy, embryology and cell biology at the University of Heidelberg
- Director of the Anatomical University Institute of Heidelberg
- President of the Medical Association for Biological Cancer Prevention
- Medical director of Biological Cancer Prevention at Friedenweiler (Germany)
Modern Cell Therapy : 1980 - Today
Numerous scientific meetings with Prof. Dr. Paul Niehans in 1970s.Prof. Dr. Albert Landsberger demonstrated that the injected animal protein molecules have an affinity with the mesenchym organ, which means that they are coded to follow the blood stream to the desired organ. Prof. Dr. Landsberger compares this to the way that hormones find their way within the hormonal system which begins in the brain’s hypophyse, the extracts are then transported to the glands in which they are to become effective.”
Dr. Gunter Blobel was given the Nobel Prize for medical research in 1999. His scientific research of discovering the built-in signals of the proteins which enables them to be transported to the cells, confirms Landsberger’s explanation. We can sum it up as follows: When implanting xenogenic tissue, it is not type specific but organ specific, as xenogenic tissue has the same organ specifications and therefore the same effect.
For more than 40 years and until today Prof. Dr. Albert Landsberger researched and developed bio molecular effectiveness and applicable fundamentals of cell therapy. After the death of Prof. Dr. Paul Niehans, Prof. Dr. Albert Landsberger pursued and amplified cell therapy research. Prof. Dr. Albert Landsberger was able to demonstrate the presence of the potential of the body’s cellular defense against cancer. These experiments led to the development of his famous anti-cancer cell-therapy agent. A lyophilized tissue extracted from the umbilical cord of fetal sheep. It supports biological, and cellular defenses of the body. He combined therapy with live cells and stem cells to treated cancer and critically ill patients. The results with cancer patients have been spectacular. Prof. Dr. Albert Landsberger is honored as “The Father of Modern Cellular Therapy”.
