Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a nervous system disease that affects your brain and spinal cord. It damages the myelin sheath, the material that surrounds and protects your nerve cells. This damage slows down or blocks messages between your brain and your body, leading to the symptoms of MS. They can include
- Visual disturbances
- Muscle weakness
- Trouble with coordination and balance
- Sensations such as numbness, prickling, or “pins and needles”
- Thinking and memory problems
No one knows what causes MS. It may be an autoimmune disease, which happens when your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. Multiple sclerosis affects women more than men. It often begins between the ages of 20 and 40. Usually, the disease is mild, but some people lose the ability to write, speak, or walk.
There is no single test for MS. Doctors use a medical history, physical exam, neurological exam, MRI, and other tests to diagnose it. There is no cure for MS, but medicines may slow it down and help control symptoms. Physical and occupational therapy may also help.
How can Stem Cells Help Multiple Sclerosis?
From what we know so far about stem cells and MS, there are two main ways that potential treatments for MS might be developed:
- Immunomodulation – preventing immune damage to the nervous system
- Remyelination – repairing the myelin sheath that has already been damaged
These are both considered ‘neuroprotective’ therapies because they aim to protect the nerve fibres inside the myelin sheath.
Because MS is a neurodegenerative disease, and its more prominent feature is the damage the disease does to the central nervous system, it is hoped that stem cells may hold the key to reversing the damage done by facilitating the repair of damaged nerve cells.
Which Kinds of cells are used in Multiple Sclerosis and how are they obtained?
Adult Stem Cells are obtained from ITC Bank from donor tissue or Autologous Transplant is harvested from the patient own Adipose Tissue and it takes 21 days to culture, differentiate and administered the Adult Stem Cells to the patient.
How are Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) administered in Multiple Sclerosis?
A Typical treatment is as following and are administered by a license physician.
- Medical evaluation, blood testing
- 1 intravenous injections of adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells , with Vit. C, Eicosanoids and Amnoaciids(day 1)
- , Hyperbaric Chamber(day 2)
- 1 intravenous injections of adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells , with Vit. C, Eicosanoids and Aminoacids(day 3)
- Hyperbaric Chamber(day 4)
- 1 intravenous injections of adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells , with Vit. C, Eicosanoids and Aminoacids(day 5)
Will anyone follow up with me after I returned home?
Del Prado Stem Cell Center cares about how you are doing after you return home. So, we will monitor your progress on a regular basis. Regular follow-up also helps us evaluate the effectiveness of our clinical protocols and improve them based on observed outcomes.
Therefore, our medical staff will be contacting you after 1 month, 3 months, 4 months, and 1 year to follow up on your condition.
Feel free to contact us we will be more than glad to assist you.
For Del Prado Stem Cell Center is very important to inform both the medical community and society in general that stem cell therapy it may be unsuccessful in some cases or not recommended for all patients.
