What is a Stroke?
A stroke occurs when the blood supply to part of the brain is suddenly interrupted or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, spilling blood into the spaces surrounding brain cells. Brain cells die when they no longer receive oxygen and nutrients from the blood or there is sudden bleeding into or around the brain. The symptoms of a stroke include sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body; sudden confusion or trouble speaking or understanding speech; sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble with walking, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination; or sudden severe headache with no known cause. There are two forms of stroke: ischemic – blockage of a blood vessel supplying the brain, and hemorrhagic – bleeding into or around the brain.
How can Stem Cells Help Stroke?
Adult Stem Cells stimulate stem cells already present in the brain and other parts of the body to heal stroke-damaged brain tissue. A second strategy involves harvesting
stem cells, purifying them, and partially or completely turning them into more mature cells for transplants to replace cells lost to stroke.
Which Kinds of cells are used in Stroke 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 Stroke?
A Typical treatment is as following and are administered by a license physician.
- Medical evaluation, blood testing (Day 1)
- intrathecal injections of adipose derive Mesenchymal Stem Cells (Day 2)
- Hyperbaric Chamber (Day 3)
- 1 intravenous injections of adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells , with Vit. C, Eicosanoids and Aminoacids (day 4)
- Hyperbaric Chamber (Day 5)
