Parkinson's Disease Treatment with Stem Cell Therapy

Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that develops over many years, leading to impairments of movement and deficits in mental functioning.

The most widely seen malady of the nervous system – usually occurs in the elderly – is caused by the degeneration of neurons that produce dopamine in the midbrain.

These cells regulate movement, and their death leads to the tremors, muscle rigidity and slowness of movement that are the main characteristics of the disease.

Parkinson’s disease affects the brain. It gets worse as people with this diagnosis become older.

It happens when certain nerve cells in the brain do not work properly.

These nerves help to control movements of the body.

Cells in the part of the brain that is responsible for controlling voluntary movement stop making dopamine.

Neurons die prematurely and the brain does not receive the necessary messages on the movement which causes Parkinson’s.

How is Parkinson’s disease treated now?

Current treatments for Parkinson’s include the drug Levodopa, which was discovered in the 1960s. It is converted into dopamine in the body and acts as a stand-in for the loss of neurons that produce dopamine. The treatment relieves the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, but do not slow down or reverse the damage to nerve cells in the brain.

Over time, the symptoms get worse despite treatment and patients lose most of the critical nerve cells. Tests that detect Parkinson’s earlier may help, but scientists are searching for a way to replace the damaged cells.

How could stem cells help?

Although the underlying cause of Parkinson’s disease is unknown, scientists do know which cells and areas of the brain are involved. Researchers are already using stem cells to grow nerve cells that produce dopamine. Because a single, well-defined type of cell is affected, it may also be possible to treat Parkinson’s by replacing the lost nerve cells with healthy new ones.

The stem cells replace those damaged neurons, which can be done using mesenchymal stem cells.

Upon injection cells begin to integrate themselves into the existing circuitry, forming connections with other cells. Various studies show that mesenchymal stem cells can survive for many years, and can lead to significant improvement in symptoms.

Scientific data have shown that mesenchymal stem cells differentiate into neurons and the real power likely resides in their ability to produce growth factors that also support damaged neurons. Using stem cell treatment doctors in our clinic have seen vast improvements with many new developments and discoveries being made in functional recovery of patients with Parkinson’s disease. Just one month after treatment, patient (68 years old) began shaking less and had easier time walking, without “freezing” and with better facial expressions. Treatment ultimately reduces trembling and restores the patient’s motor skills.

Advantages of Stem Cell therapy in Swiss Medica clinics:

During stem cell treatment a patient receives 200 – 300 million stem cells. The quantity of restored cells not only covers daily losses, but exceeds them a thousand times. Thus, the reserve of the stem cells, practically lost for the latest 15 – 20 years, is restored. After such an active cell replenishment, organ gets rejuvenated and renewed, because the new and active cells displace the old and damaged ones.

Firstly, only personal tissue and cells are used, so there is no risk of contamination by transmissible diseases.

Secondly, the personal cells suit chromosomal and genetic structure and allow the avoidance of any allergic and immune reactions.

Thirdly, there is no oncological complication as adult stem cells in the comparison with embryonic cells are rather mature.

Fourthly, relatively small quantity of the fat tissue is needed for extraction of the necessary stem cells. That is why after activation process the stem cells can be at once injected to a patient without necessity of growing them on substances. (Embryonic stem cells are grown for several months). The usual period of time between getting lipoaspirate and injection of the activated stem cells is a few hours and there is no need for anesthesia.

These cells, judging by their regenerative potential, are similar to multipotent marrow cells. But they are easily accessible and yield up to ten times more stem cells, simplify all the procedures and manipulations, add to safety.

Swiss Medica Clinic is an excellent centre that offers Parkinson’s disease patients the most innovative therapies of the highest quality and confidence. We have one of the best doctors for stem cells therapy and treating different chronic diseases. In general, in our medical centers we use the unique technology of applying autologous photo activated stem cells previously extracted from fat cells using mini liposuction. The highest standards of treatment and investigative research are upheld at all times.
