More Information On Alexander Teplyashin and His Moscow Based Clinics

More Information On Alexander Teplyashin and His Moscow Based Clinics

June 1st, 2014: This is the 2nd part of a 2 post series where I explain to the readers how this Moscow based stem cell research clinic finally succeeded in getting the stem cells method to fully work. To read the original article, click here.

This is a very quick post today since I am getting more and more information on Teplyashin. I went back on the StemCellRussia.com website and found a Youtube Video which talked about this guy. I will put the video at the bottom of this post. There is a video of him answering questions in an interview and I got his russian name from the screen which I clipped and pasted to the right.

I had to use a russian/cyrillic keyboard to type out his name. (It turns out the problem I had before with finding the right character to write “x” is two characters, which is “KC”. That was why the day before I couldn’t write out his real name. This is how you spell his name.

PlackYou would see that this guy is a credible plastic surgeon which seems to have experience going as far back as 1985. There seems to be a lot of review websites which critique his level of surgical work. There is a lot of information on this guy. For example, he has gotten quite a few medical awards from European countries back in the 90s.

The fact is that at some point, Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Hillary Clinton have visited this guy to interview him on the stem cell research going on in Russia. There is a Russian Journalist Sergei Dorenko who wrote about Teplyashin in a book entitled “2008” He wrote about that experience in some type of autobiography called Chasing Life (I assume that is in russian). The book is even listed on sale on Amazon Here (not an affiliate link). The other way to spell this guy’s last name is Teplyashina. (This is the source I used)

PublicationsIt seems that in the Moscow scene in terms of stem cell research, this guy is sort of a famous plastic surgeon celebrity, sort of like Dr. Shahab Mahboubian based in Hollywood, who does Limb Lengthening Surgery.

His focus is on breast augmentation, breast implants, and breast lifts. There was a website called www.idealbust.ru at one time which now redirects to his primary website http://beauty-plaza.ru/ru_ideal_bust.

(Warning: Website is NOT safe for work. Includes some nudity.)

Analysis On His Research

I found out earlier today from a quick search result on Yandex more about his speciality. His focus is on plastic surgery alterations on the breasts. He is one of THOSE types of plastic surgeons. The obvious question then is whether this guy ever really did the research for bones and cartilage regeneration. Was he really involved in that research, or did he do the act of slapping his name on a project which he was not really actively involved in? We know from many USA universities, tenured professors often get their post-docs and graduate students to perform the real lab works and then take credit for it by putting their name somewhere as one of the authors.

I am quite sure that he was not the originator of the paper I had cited in the previous post. The likely real tissue engineering innovator is someone in his team, who has focused their attention on the bone/cartilage side of tissue engineering research. His focus is on extracting and growing stem cells from fat tissue. The one really well known patent he published which can be found in Google Patents refers to getting MSCs from fat. That is still relevant though, if you can get the end result of both fat and bone marrow derived stem cells to be the same.

One commenter calling themselves Tynai from Russia gave some interesting useful information which I clipped below. They are answering some questions so maybe Tynai is a marketing representative for Teplyashin’s Beauty Plaza Business. His English is hard to understand though.

Moscow Based Clinics

It seems that he answered some other questions I have had. The team that Teplyashin is head of seems to fully realize what they have achieved, and do want to take the stem cell technique to human and to the world-wide market. They intend to patent this idea. However, there is some issues still and the regulators in Russia is asking them to do more trials to prove the general concept that it would work properly.

This would kind of explain why the Moscow based clinics have been saying that they would get the tissue engineering technology ready for the general public for at least 3 years now. That was the big complaint by the guys at the Make Me Taller Forums. They heard about Teplyashin’s research, but the team did not deliver in the time they had initially claimed. They said only 1-2 years, but it has been 3-4 years past. The reason Tynai is giving suggest that there are not enough willing participants who would agree to do the preliminary clinical trials as test subjects!! The last I checked, there was at least 3-4 willing participants who wrote back in 2012 on the MMT forums that they are willing to do it. So maybe the clinic is lying. I believe that they will have a patent filed, but to actually bring it to market in even say 3-5 years time, I am not holding my breath.

(Side Note: For people who are don’t know that much about legal issues dealing with copyrights, trademarks, patents, etc. the legal process to get a patent to be properly filed often takes at least 1-2 years. I took a Bioengineering and Entrepreneurship course at the local University of Washington for fun and a huge section of the class was devoted to talking about the lengthy process it takes for universty lab based discoveries to finally become patented and taken to the general public aka market.)

The only thing for people who want the real deal in terms of an alternative to Limb Lengthening Surgery, they can only just wait, and hope that the Moscow based Clinic will roll out the less invasive surgical procedure in the next 3-5 years, which is very reasonable.

The Cost of The Stem Cells Method – Is it more expensive than LLS?

The guys at the MMT forum mentioned in their usual negative attitude that even if the surgery was available, most people who are not Russian Billionaires would not be able to get the chance to use it. I only half agree with those comments.

It will be expensive, and I would guess it would range around $100,000-$400,000 for each growth plate implant. Each implant based on how thick the cartilage is is claimed by Teplyashin in the older sources to give around 7-8 cms increased bone length each. That is very impressive. A multi-millionaire would be able to get maybe 4 implants (for their 2 femurs and 2 tibia) and gain up to 6 inches over the course of 1-2 years, while not being confined to external fixators or need to have another surgery to pull out internal nails.

However, as long as the technology and the surgical procedure is finally implemented for the commoner, even at millionaire level prices, over time, say in 5-10 years, there will be other clinics around the world (most especially in China and Plastic Surgery obsessed South Korea) which will have surgeons who learn how the procedure is done and implement it into their own skill set. Given another 10 years after the first successful surgery of growth plate implant, the price would be reduced to maybe levels around $30,000-$50,000, a full magnitude lower.

Over the Technical Issue of The Soft Tissue around the Bone Tissue like Muscle and Ligament being the constraint to limit bone lengthening…

I recently found at least 1 chemical compound (and 1 patent detailing another chemical) which have shown to be able to increase the muscle tissue fiber characteristic known as “extensibility” with just a few injections. That is actually going to be in one of the up-coming posts which will also be the next game-changing post. Stay tuned for that one. I DO NOT plan to write about the revolutionary chemical which can literally “lengthen” muscle fibers anytime this week though.

Some Closing Thoughts

There are some crazy research stuff going on in the world currently, often hidden from our eyes, and often they are not going to be something you can find from a quick Google Search. You would need to go to different countries, look in the labs of private think tanks funded by ultra-private rich investors with very personal agendas, privately funded university labs, government facilities, and military based operations. We are not aware of what is really possible because we are almost never told the whole truth. I am going to try to bring as much of the crazy research out into the open as possible for you guys to see.

The fact is that based on how explosive and fast stem cell research is going, and multiple university professors trying to find ways to regenerate hyaline cartilage, what Teplyashin’s team did is not really revolutionary. They are only the group that put the entire thing together and was willing to take the general concept of stem cells and tissue engineering to work for the purpose of helping adults with fully ossified growth plates grow taller. If they didn’t do it, someone else or another research team would have done it within the next 2 decades. All the real technical barriers have been overcome. I proved that after going through hundreds of PubMed studies on tissue engineering. The problem on how fast stem cell research can progress and be brought to the general public for use has been held back for USA government laws passed against lab work done on unborn embryos. That has actually held the stem cell field back for the last 2 decades. Only this decade did the government officials realize that one can get stem cells from other places besides just unborn fetuses and embryos. That is why the research have finally started to pick up again and this field is super-hot to get into right now.

To end this post, I would like to quote a passage from Hamlet, There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy”

I put a video below which was uploaded back in 2008. It shows Teplyashin giving an interview, all in Russian.

Him on a radio station to talk about the trends of plastic surgery for rich women in Moscow getting so much plastic surgery.

Why I Believe Alexander Teplyashin Got The Stem Cell Technique To Successfully Work – Game Changing Post!

Why I Believe Alexander Teplyashin Got The Stem Cell Technique To Successfully Work – Game Changing Post!

Update June 1st, 2014: This is the 1st of a two post series where I reveal in detail how this Russian based beauty clinic doing testing on stem cells finally put all the pieces of tissue engineering together to get an implanted stem cell embedded scaffold to turn into a new growth plate which is re-implanted into a bone to get bones to grow longer again. For more information on the actual clinic and the scientific references of the main surgeon, refer also to the 2nd post in the series, Available Here.

Guys, this is one of the big news I am going to release in the coming months. This is just ONE of the many game changers you guys are going to be seeing.  This is one of the major stories that is worth releasing. You guys can look forward to a real alternative to LLS.

This week, I have gotten messages from two people questioning the stem cell technique of height increase which was claimed to be successful by the Russian Scientist Alexander Teplyashin. I wrote about this guy already in two posts linking his work to stem cells used for increasing height in adults.

While one of them ask whether the technique was effective, the other claimed that they believe that he was successful. Based on my research, I agree with him. This post is one of the biggest things to ever come out, and I think we need to accept the implications of such news. There may be a scientific push in innovation, but it is going to be associated with some serious medical ethics questions, dealing with the use of embryo derived stem cells, which is currently still illegal in the USA.

This Teplyashin guy probably did succeed with getting a stem cell scaffold implant to work. The problem is that this very controversial guy who was back in 2008-2010 getting a lot of international media coverage. In recent years the western world and the internet hasn’t gotten any information on him. I was able to find articles on this guy going as far back as the 2004-2005 time range.

The Make Me Taller forum had people talking about him back in 2012 in their thread “Russian scientists develop an alternative way of growing taller using step cells“. They thought it was a scam. It is NOT a scam. This guy is the real deal. You can just read the main link I put below in the PubMed study and you guys would realize that he was going the right type of research. That study was one of the “secret files” which I have archived in my research folder which I realized more than a year ago showed revolutionary implications to our goal. The thing is that I didn’t recognize or see the name of one of the authors on the top of it. The reason I didn’t see it was because the guy’s name was spelled differently, to Tepliashin AS, not the other way to spell it ‘Teplyashin“. His middle name probably starts with the letter S.

Side Note: The guy also claims to also have figured out how to use the stem cells to stop aging and give people youth but I think he is most likely exaggerating. However, there is one PubMed studies which was published by him and his team to show that they are quite serious at least on the research, at least partially (PubMed Study: Ways of reducing mortality following the surgical treatment of peptic ulcer in advanced middle aged and elderly patientsNote: The paper is in russian.)

If you guys want to do some searching on this guy type in “Teplyashin, AS” or “Tepliashin AS” into Google, Google Scholar, or Google Patents and you would find quite a bit of stuff on the guy. Remember that when one language is translated into another language, there can be various spelling variations to the name. Teplyashin and Tepliashin is the English/Romanic Language way of translating the Russian/Cyrilic Alphabet. (This is what would happen when the European and Asian immigrants would arrive in Ellis Island and Angel Island in the 19th century and the officer checking them in to their new home could neither pronounce their names or spell their names in their native tongue. aka Lost In Translation. They gave these immigrants a badly translated into english name, which would be spelled in multiple various ways)  If we were using a Russian/Cyrilic based biomedical scientific study & journal database, we would be able to type in his real name using the native letters. I studied a little bit of Russian in school so I understand at least how to pronounce the letters.

Here are about half a dozen PubMed studies I found which show that his team has been doing some SERIOUS research on exactly the right type of area to get the stem cell technique to work out.

What I have been proposing for an alternative to limb lengthening surgery on this website the last full year using tissue engineering and stem cells have already been done by these guys in Russia, maybe even as far back as 2009-2011. They figured out how to get the mesenchymal stem cells from either the bone marrow or fat tissue (aka adipocyte derived) or both sources to differentiate successfully to chondrocytes. They implanted it to a scaffold, which I have believed for a few months now the easiest to work with was the OPLA Scaffolds, which is industry standard for use with stem cells. When the differentiated chondrocytes start to excrete waste in the form of proteoglycans and other glycoaminoglycans forming the extracellular matrix of a completely new hyaline cartilage tissue layer, the scaffold which is biodegradable would just dissolve over time, leaving the cartilage. That is the new growth plate. Since the MSCs are taken from the patients own body aka endogenously, there is not going to be some type of immunological response where the patients body’s immune system would reject the implantation.

So does that mean that his clinics can indeed help adults who have fully closed growth plates grow taller?

Yes. His method of using stem cells is a real alternative to the limb lengthening method done by Dror Paley, Betz, and their proteges and students.

Limb Lengthening Surgery is no longer the only way to grow taller as an adult. This guy and his team has provided an alternative.

How can I be sure that he did succeed already?

Based on the following study published…

Guys, read the abstract to the link above. That is enough to tell you guys everything. This guy is for real, and he has the scientific team and experience to back up at least this claim about using scaffold implants.

For that study it was done on lab mice/rats but there seems to have been a lot of subsequent testing on mammals much closer in size to humans. (Here is the original source) The sources which talked about using the same technology on human bones said that the testing was done on sheep so this is not a normal lab test using small mammals like rats or rabbits. They used sheep. Sheep have long bones similar in shape and thickness as human leg bones. Sure, it might have been better if the lab animals were pigs, since pigs have almost the exact same physiology as humans, but regrowth of long bones longitudinally in sheep is very close. The study is quite conclusive in my opinion.

The following study is almost the exact same type of research that Warren Grayson from John’s Hopkins (with his 3-D Bioprinters) and Jean Welter of Case Western University (LinkedIn profile available here) have been doing, but he just took it to the next step. I have been tracking the research being done by Grayson and Welter for over half a year now and even wrote a post about Grayson’s work in relation to what we are trying to do. It is available in the post “Why Warren Grayson’s Research Will Be Revolutionary For Height Increasing Using Stem Cells For Tissue Reconstructive Engineering – Breakthrough!

The paper above proves that he succeeded in regrowing a working hyaline growth plate and implanted back in lab sheep and the legs started to grow longer again. When the results showed effectiveness, he set up shop to give the stem cell height increase technology to billionaire russians and their spouses. Maybe that New Jersey Net’s Russian Billionaire Owner used this guy’s technique to become 6′ 8″. Of course, maybe he didn’t and was always that tall.

Whereas in the USA, there are so many regulations by medical societies to make sure the patients of clinical trials are safe and protected, in places like Russia, China, South Korea, and the former Soviet Union they don’t seem to care. I am not sure if the people remember but there was a very famous South Korea researcher linked to Seoul National University who was found to have faked many data points back in the 2009-2011, a Dr. Hwang Woo Suk. Even the countries which are supposed to be good in terms of following scientific guidelines like Korea have failed too. These guys based in Russia, they push forward on the research where the other countries draw a line in ethics and morals. (It is similar to how Gavriil Ilizarov spent 30 years of his life to perfect the external frame method before unveiling his distraction osteogenesis technique to the western world during the end of the cold war era in the late 80s and early 90s. These guys didn’t give a crap about moral rules and just pushed forwards into research.)

Like I said before in the previous post on this guy, there were stories of barrels of dead aborted fetuses found in the Ural Mountain Range region linked to Teplyashin back in the 2004-2006 time from one source I found on this guy. It is very clear that he and the Russian researchers don’t give a crap about the rules imposed by the western world and USA especially. The use of using embryonic source derived stem cells is illegal in the USA and western countries. That is why many stem cell users go to Mexico and certain South American countries to get stem cells injections.

However, I am not sure who would be willing to go to Moscow to take a look at the clinics thought. Which regular readers of this website is really willing to find the beauty clinics in Moscow and report back to us on what they find?

As for the internet sources….

However, there is no news that is coming out of Russia on his Beauty Plaza clinic that can be found on Google, DuckDuckGo, or Bing. If we instead maybe used Yandex and Rambler, and could actually type out his real name, there would be some useful information on this guy.

I am willing to give it a shot though. Refer to Romanic-Cyrillic Alphabet Phonetic Translator chart below.

TranslatorTranslator 2So    A-L-E-X-A-N-D-E-R       T-E-P-L-Y-A-S-H-I-N —–> is most likely going to require that we first go under the General Settings of our computer (Mac or PC), change the general language setting to “Russian” and then type the following into Yandex or Rambler based on English Keyboard–>Russian Keyboard Key Positions. It would start with something like “F-G-L-” I am not sure what the “X” would translate into for the English based keyboard though.

Like I said before in the recent posts, We ask help from the regular readers to translate many studies we have found in other languages, most especially Russian, Chinese, Korean, and German. There is also some Japanese and Farsi based studies but there will be less of those around.

I am willing to pay $100 for the full PDF to the study above but I ask for someone to help out to translate the bought article from Russian to English.
