The Cellular Therapeutics Center (CTC) provides viable alternative or adjunct cutting-edge therapy for chronic, autoimmune, and degenerative diseases such as cancer, multiple sclerosis, ischemic cardiomyopathy, psoriasis, and osteoarthritis. The Center is accredited by the Philippines’ Department of Health (DOH) as “a facility that may engage in human stem cell or cellular therapy” in accordance with Administrative Order No. 2013-012. It adheres to global standards in cellular therapeutics practice, training and research, and staffed by experienced scientists dedicated to excellence in healthcare.
 
The Center’s own Laboratory is at par with the United States Food and Drug Administration (US-FDA) sterility standard (ISO class 5 clean room), ensuring cell purity (at least 90 to 95%) and cell viability of the product.
