The Future of Stem Cells

The list of stem cell treatable diseases continues to grow at a rapid pace. With the potential to become different cell types, scientists are exploring the possibility of using cord blood stem cells to treat some of the most common life-threatening diseases such as heard diseases and stroke. Commonly used treatments
Repair Nerve Cells : to heal brain and spinal cord injuries or brain damage caused by stroke

Regenerate cells to form new blood vessels: to treat heart and circulatory disease

Replace damaged cells: to improve recovery from cardiovascular diseases, a heart attack, or injury

Regenerate brain cells: to treat brain injury, cerebral palsy and Parkinson's disease

Stem Cell Therapy for Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy is a disorder of the brain caused by any insult during pari-natal period. It may be caused by lack of oxygen or trauma during birth or infection jaundice, genetic disorders before or after birth.
The cell injury also leads to an inflammatory immune response that increases the release of chemicals leading to cell damage and swelling. The cell breaks up into smaller fragments so that phagocytes can then ingest the remains. Lack of cerebral blood flow and oxygen can result into series of ailments.
This is the flow of events that can result from the lack of cerebral blood flow and oxygen.
The causes of this ischemia/hpoxia scenario can include traumatic brain injury and blood vessel break or blockage, chemical toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, atherosclerosis, infection, allergies, and hypoglycemia (a deficit of glucose has similar effects on neurons as oxygen deficit), as well as emotional stress. All of these factors promote an excess of glutamate and glutamate is toxic to neural stem cells.
Infants with cerebral palsy are usually slow to reach developmental milestones such as rolling over, sitting, crawling and walking.
Stem cell therapy is a drug-free alternative focused on affecting physical changes in the brain that can improve a child's quality of life. Almost 70% of the cerebral palsy patients treated with stem cells worlwide show improvement. Most cerebral palsy patients are treated by lumbar puncture injecting the stem cells into the cerebrospinal fluid which transports them up the spinal canal and into the brain. Lumbar puncture is an outpatient procedure that requires patients to stay in Hospital for one day.

Stem Cell Therapy for Stroke

Stem cells are unique and have the potential to develop into many different cell types in the body including brain cells. They also have the ability to produce more stem cells.
After the stem cell therapy, positive results were achieved after an average of about 2 months from the treatment. A significant percent of patients experienced better coordination and improved motor skills in their hands and fingers. Post treatment, patients had the ability to stand and walk without being dependant.
We use cells of highest purity, viability and integrity from world quality laboratory, which complies with international standards. As it has been proved that more transplantation cycles gives better and better results.

Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injury

Stem cell derived from human umbilical cord or bone marrow improves mobility with spinal cord injuries providing the first physical evidence that the therapeutic use of these cells can help restore motor skills lost from acute spinal cord tissue damage.
Patients are treated by injecting the stem cells directly into damaged area or in the cerebrospinal fluid which flows within the spinal canal. This procedure is called intrathecal injection or lumbar puncture.
After the treatments, improvements were reported by patients with both incomplete and complete injuries. Regaining sensation was reported by 60 patients. More than two-thirds reported increased muscle strength and improved endurance. Post treatment about 26 – 41 % patients experienced better bladder and bowel control and improved erections. Over 50% patients reported decreased spasticity and limb pain.
An injured spinal cord loses its ability to regenerate myelin-forming cells leading to paralysis. Fehlings showed that where stem cells restored myelin in the injured spine, rats showed some recovery and walked with more coordination. Stem cell research has the potential to save the lives of those afflicted by many medical conditions including spinal cord injury.
