14 Oct Multiple Sclerosis and Stem Cell Treatment
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), you know that MS attacks a patient’s body through the myelin sheath, a layer that forms around nerves in the brain and spinal cord. Left untreated, this can lead to permanent damage to the nerve cells and nerves.
Nerves work by transmitting impulses to and from the human body’s muscles, brain, spinal cord, and organs. Patients diagnosed with MS can experience pain in the body, along with neuropathic pain from damaged nerves and loss of motion and function in several body parts.
Common signs of Multiple Sclerosis include –
- Numbness or weakness in limbs
- Partial or complete loss of vision
- Pain and discomfort in different areas of your body
- Loss of coordination or an unsteady walk
- Slurred speech
- Fatigue or dizziness
- Crawling or burning feeling
- Mental disorders
How can Stem Cell Therapy help Multiple Sclerosis patients?
Stem cells can potentially differentiate into a number of different cells that may aid in tissue regeneration and other functions. The cells are harvested from a patient’s adipose tissue (fat), and are then injected into the patient’s body to promote regeneration and healing. With stem cells coming from the patient’s own body, the risk of rejection is minimal and overall safety is high.
Since adult stem cells can differentiate into different types of cells, they can repair damaged cells. MSCs may also help in reducing inflammation and regulating the immune system.
This makes stem cell treatments a great potential treatment option for MS.
