ALS is progressive disease, which means that symptoms get worse over time, therefore it’s not curable. However, a patient diagnosed with ALS can benefit from stem cell treatment, improve the overall quality of his life, and even expand it for 6 to 8 months. Bearing in mind the severity of the disease, Swiss Medica clinic offers STEM CELL TREATMENT for patients diagnosed with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), hoping that somehow we can contribute to improving their condition. We learned a lot about ALS and tried to treat this disease using a combination of stem cells, different procedures and so on. As a result, we have a method, which helps to prolong life and improve symptoms.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a severe progressive disease of the nervous system. Despite more than a century of its study, ALS development causes remain unclear. This disease is characterized by the degeneration of motor neurons, which take place in the spinal cord and brain, resulting in muscles motor paralysis in the later stages of the condition. Its origin lies in the development of muscle weakness that causes ALS with muscular frame atrophy. Prognosis is extremely poor and until recently, the treatments were symptomatic and could only delay fatal ending.
Pic. 1. Cellular and molecular processes mediating neurodegeneration in ALS
The mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in ALS are multifactorial and operate through inter-related molecular and genetic pathways. Specifically, neurodegeneration in ALS might result from a complex interaction of glutamate excitoxicity, generation of free radicals, cytoplasmic protein aggregates, SOD1 enzymes, combined with mitochondrial dysfunction, and disruption of axonal transport processes through accumulation of neurofilament intracellular aggregates. Mutations in TARDBP and FUS result in formation of intracellular aggregates, which are harmful to neurons. Activation of microglia results in secretion of proinflammatory cytokines, resulting in further toxicity. Ultimately, motor neuron degeneration occurs through activation of calcium-dependent enzymatic pathways. Our doctors recommend you individual treatment program and offer the best stem cells.
In recent years, there has been a breakthrough in the ALS therapy. Numerous studies have demonstrated how ALS is treated by the positive effect of stem cell therapy. Stem cells are represented by cells that have not undergone differentiation and acquired specific functions. They have the self-healing capacity by dividing and differentiating into specific cell types. Being a part of human repair system naturally, it is only logical that this is a powerful source in fighting damaged areas in organism. Mature or differentiated cells used for the treatment of degenerative diseases, which include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, form specific structures and perform specific functions and in many cases, lose the ability to divide and reproduce which is the basis of stem cell therapy for ALS.
The use of this innovative method increases the release level of neurotrophic substances by mesenchymal steam cell therapy. The neurotrophic substances protect motor neurons against damage, contribute to its formation and improve the neuromuscular interaction. This is the first therapy of mesenchymal stem cells use. The method basis lies in the use of patient’s own stem cells found in bone marrow or fat tissue, which are used for the neurons grown in the laboratory. The entire treatment process is up to the highest technological and medical standards. The risk of treatment by Adult Autologous Stem Cell is minimal and limited to the normal risks of surgical intervention. Because the used cells are patient's own, there is no risk of rejection or side effects. The treatment by own steam cells can significantly slow down the ALS symptoms and prolong patient's life. The limb movement increases, muscle tension and fasciculations zones number decreases, reflexes normalize, better tolerability of daily stress is introduced, as well as swallowing and word pronunciation, which also improve.
ALS stem cell therapy opens entirely new possibilities in the disease treatment, resulting in the significant improvement of patient's motor activity with mental and emotional status. In addition, overall health is at a much higher level. Numerous clinical trials and personal experience of ALS treatment using autologous hematopoietic stem cells proved the to be absolutely safe.
Currently, this therapy is considered the most modern and effective treatment method for ALS, which has been successfully applied in practice in the European clinic with the highest reputation, Swiss Medica.
The following is a list of diseases treated by stem cell therapy in our clinic:
Our clinic has developed the program of Adult Autologous Stem Cell Therapy treating a variety of conditions, one of them being ALS. During the treatment, patient receives 200-300 million cells. This procedure is very safe, painless, quick and simple and it is completed within only a couple of hours. Small quantity of stem cells are taken from the patient’s body, either from bone marrow or fat tissue, depending on a person. After the substance is professionally separated and activated, stem cells are put back into the patient’s body using a standard IV dip. Now comes the resting stage, during which stem cells circulate the body looking for the place of damage and slowly start the repairing process. Improvements can be visible very soon, but are still building up in the next 2-4 months. This treatment works like no other, improving the symptoms, but reversing them as well.
However, besides treating the suffering areas, stem cells make the whole body healthier and more rejuvenated. The amount of plain restored cells exceeds the person's daily losses by thousand times. Because of it, all organs in the body are renewed and old and damaged cells replaced.
Swiss Medica ХХI Century has been working for 20 years and our successful clinical experience made each individual in our team experts in restoration and revitalization of the body. Our specialists prevent a number of serious age related and chronic diseases. Working with modern technologies, we are constantly improving our knowledge, developing skills and approaches in this field.
We take into consideration the patient's state, his or hers analyses and disease history
At Swiss Medica Clinic we deliver the treatment with proven results associated with the assistance of highly qualified professionals who realize the importance of personalized care, quality and confidence that guarantees the top standards of treatment.
A patient can undergo medical treatment in Swiss Medica ХХI Century in Moscow (Russia), Belgrade (Serbia) or Switzerland.
What they say about us
The procedures are made very professionally. The team here is very professional and work like one. I am impressed how everybody knows what I’m doing, how I’m feeling and there is no need to explain.
After the second procedure there were improvements in my walking and I feel a lot of energy and power. My leg is now moving lightly. Before I came here, I dragged my leg, now I can make steps, so I think that is a good start.continue
We found many people offering stem cells, but the only one we had confidence in, because of their fast replies and very definite replies to our questions was Swiss Medica.
The treatment rejuvenated me, and hopefully see my mobility become better. But for sure I am feeling much better since being here.continue
The staff are much kind, they’re very intuitive and if you have problem with anything at all, you only have to call and they are there within a second. I’ve been very happy with treatment, I’ve been very happy with staff and I would recommend this clinic.continue
