Cerebral Palsy Stem Cells Therapy
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a disease caused by brain damage, usually formed in early childhood and is characterized by motor impairment, paralysis, muscle weakness, loss of coordination and involuntary movements.
About 1-3 children in a thousand are born with cerebral palsy and those born with a very low birth weight and preterm infants are at a higher risk. Signs and symptoms usually appear within the first year of a child’s life and make it hard for this patient to control the body. This can happen if one of the three main areas of the brain, that controls muscle activity, is damaged. Therefore, there are three main types of cerebral palsy.
Spastic occurs in 70-80% of the cases. The main symptoms include increase of muscle tone (when the muscles are in a state of stress), tightness (spastic) and movement becomes difficult or impossible. What has proved to be helpful for it is a stem cell therapy.
Dyskinetic form of cerebral palsy is characterized by poor coordination of movements. There are two main subtypes of it. Athetoid (hyperkinetic) form is characterized by slow or rapid uncontrollable movements of any part of the body, as the process may involve the face, mouth and tongue, which can’t be healed without stem cells therapy. Approximately 10-20% of cases of this disease can be attributed to this type. Atactic form is characterized by imbalance and poor coordination. If a patient walks, the gait is indecisive and changeable. Those who suffer from this type have problems with the performance of rapid movements and movements that require high control, such as writing. This form affects 5-10% of patients with cerebral palsy. For this type of the disease own stem cells used during the treatment are very beneficial.
There is also a mixed form, which is a combination of various forms of cerebral palsy. The most common combination is that of spastic and athetoid CP forms. Patient’s intellect doesn’t suffer, but the ability to show it is sometimes limited, mostly by difficulties in communication
Therapy with mesenchymal stem cells opens entirely new possibilities in the treatment of cerebral palsy. Stem cells for cerebral palsy treatment have the unique property — they can turn into new healthy cells of the tissues that need to be repaired. In this case, that is the damaged brain tissue. In addition, the stem cells for cerebral palsy contribute to reconstruction of new blood vessels and improve blood flow to the affected tissues of the brain. Best results are obtained by using the so-called mesenchymal stem cell therapy. Swiss Medica is the best clinic for cerebral palsy mesenchymal stem cells treatment.
Until recently, it was believed that CP is an incurable disease. It is a well-established view in the medical community, which was refuted by practical developments in Europe known as Swiss clinic, Swiss Medica of the ХХI century by using the latest techniques for the cerebral palsy treatment by stem cells therapy, which is a revolutionary method of the twenty-first century. There is no other therapy which results in persistent improvement of patients. Experts do not doubt that the cellular medicine is an extremely promising scientific area.
Swiss Medica ХХI Century
Our clinic has developed the program of Adult Autologous Stem Cell Therapy treating a variety of conditions, one of them being cerebral palsy. In the process of stem cells treatment, 200 – 300 million cells are placed into the patient’s body. They come from a person’s own organism, which eliminates side effects and make the whole procedure very quick and simple. Stem cells are a part of human repair system naturally, which is why they are good for treating damaged areas, in this case, mainly brain tissue. 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.
Undergoing treatment in our clinic, patients receive activated autologous mesenchymal stem cells therapy. The cells are taken from bone marrow and/or adipose tissue, depending on a patient.
We take into consideration the patient’s state, his or hers analyses and disease history.
The whole stem cell procedure is completed within only one day. It is completely safe, quick, simple and painless. After stem cells are extracted from either patient’s bone marrow or abdominal tissue, they are separated and activated, after which they are put back into the body using a simple IV dip.
In the the next 2-4 months after the treatments, improvements are slowly building up. Symptoms decrease and are reversed, which is possible only with this treatment. During this time, our specialists go on receiving the data from the patient’s tests and support them with advice. The Adult Autologous Stem Cell Therapy is accompanied by the 6 month medical follow-up.
The advantages of our treatment system:
- Side effects and rejection free (patient’s very own stem cells from the abdomen and/or bone marrow are used).
- Avoidance of any allergic and immune reactions (patient’s own cells suit chromosomal and genetic structure).
- Does not require general anesthesia.
- No risk of contamination by transmissible diseases.
- No oncological complications as adult stem cells in the comparison to embryonic cells are rather mature.
- Procedure is very quick and simple. Small quantity of cells are extracted from bone marrow and/or fat tissue. Combination of the two can often show the best results.
- The period of time between getting lipoaspirate and injection of the activated stem cells is only a few hours.
- Adult stem cells are superior over embryonic stem cells, because they don’t require growth of several moths and come from patient’s own body, which is why there is no risk of side effects after the treatment.
