Stem Cell Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis
Although current medications for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are able to reduce the symptoms and slow disease progression, these treatments are not able to repair the damage to nerve cells or the myelin sheath.
Treatment with Stem Cells have been found to be safe and lead to sustained improvements in disability and brain lesions of MS patients. One recent clinical study, “Clinical feasibility of umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells in the treatment of multiple sclerosis,” was published in the Journal of Translational Medicine.
Today the hottest topic in Stem Cell research is the use of Exosomes combined with Stem Cells for use in treating human disease. Millions of tiny protein packets of molecular information are charging through your blood stream right now. These bubble packs known as Exosomes are released from Stem Cells and until recently, only a small group of researchers gave them any notice. Today there is a research explosion in the use of high doses of Exosomes and Stem Cells for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis and diseases of the Central Nervous System.
The molecular information in Exosomes are known as growth factor/cytokines – that get released from Stem Cells and move onto other cells performing cell-to-cell communication. This transfer of information in cells is believed to be vitally important to the regenerative healing of old cells and protecting new cells within the body. New research suggests that the regeneration of healthy tissue is not a direct result of just the Stem Cells, but also the Exosomes left behind, which are responsible for transferring the information from one cell to another.
Treatment with stem cells produce:
- Proteins that support the growth and survival of neurons
- Angiogenic factors that are essential for healing
- Development and maintenance of blood vessels
- Immunomodulatory substances that can reverse the damage to the nerves
Cendant Stem Cell Center uses Stem cells and Exosomes for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis. Treatment could help improve the symptoms of MS:
- Visual disturbances
- Slurred speech
- Bladder and bowel problems
Stem Cell and Exosome therapy is a natural treatment that helps the repair and regeneration of diseased cells. Although there is no cure for MS, this treatment can help manage your symptoms and reduce the effects of further damage.
