What is Multiple sclerosis?
MS is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system and is characterized by our immune system attacking the components of the myelin sheath. This challenging condition does not have a cure and surely can be difficult to treat because the immune system is attacking the patient’s cells.
How can our Clinical Approach help multiple sclerosis patients?
Cellular therapy is unlikely to cure Multiple sclerosis but can bring improvement to Multiple sclerosis patients by managing the symptoms and reducing the relapses. The administration of highly concentrated stem cells stimulate the repair of damaged myelin sheath “remyelinating”, allowing them to function correctly again and preventing them from attacking itself.
How is Multiple Sclerosis stem cell therapy done?
In multiple sclerosis stem cell therapy, we use two treatment options; A high concentrated Mesenchymal stem cells derived from the patient bone marrow and adipose tissue (autologous) mixed with donors cells (allogenic) extracted from cord blood and Wharton’s jelly in high concentration.
One of the main features of Mesenchymal stem cells is immune-modulation, which may halt the attack of the myelin sheath by the immune system, this approach is a promising alternative therapy that can decrease inflammation, halt disease progression and improve the general well being of the patient.
Does stem cell therapy relieve any symptoms of multiple sclerosis?
MS patients may suffer a range of symptoms commonly involving problems with walking and sensation, chronic pain, bladder and bowel issues, depression and fatigue. These symptoms may linger for a long time and can be improved by using Stem cell therapy.
How long does it take MS stem therapy to work?
Patients will begin to see visible improvement in MS symptoms after a few weeks of administration. Although, this varies and it is very much dependent on the patient’s body system. This signs improvement continues for over the next several years.
Why is MS stem cell therapy chosen over Traditional methods?
Clinical studies have shown that MS stem cell therapy is an effective method for improving MS symptoms and can inhibit MS disease progression in the patient; this will significantly improve the quality of life among MS patients.
Other approaches such as Copaxone, interferon, and immune-suppressing agents aim at preventing the immune system from attacking the nerve cells by blocking immune responses against the myelin sheath. Most traditional approaches have not been successful and have a lot of adverse effects, and this is why MS stem cell therapy has become a good alternative treatment to help manage MS symptoms and boost the patient’s general wellbeing.
