Stem Cell Spinal Cord Injury Treatment: Spinal cord injury (SCI), in most cases is a result of a traumatic hit or injury to the spinal cord. The injury disrupts the normal movement of the person by injury to the spine discs, damage of ligaments and fragmentation of the spinal cord tissue. The injury can cause the nerve cells to be destroyed and the extension of nerve cells called axons can also be damaged. After the spinal cord injury there are some patients which recover from the injury and there are also other cases which results into complete paralysis.
Injury to “Cervical Vertebra” can results in the paralysis and injury to “Lumbar Vertebra” can results in the loss of functioning in hip, bladder, legs, bowel habits and may also results into sexual dysfunction.
There are some symptoms of spinal cord injury:
- Loss of control over various body organ
- Incapable of moving arms and legs
- Loss of control over bowel and bladder
- Extreme pain and stiffness in the neck region
- Pain in moving head
STEM CELL THERAPY FOR TREATMENT OF SPINAL CORD INJURY
Stem cells are known to have various uses in treatment of Spinal Cord Injury. Stem cells have property to stimulate neurogenesis or regeneration of the affected area of the brain matrix and spinal cord and ultimately bringing about a noticeable repair of symptoms. Improvement is done by restoration of the lost or impaired neuron network and making of the new neuron network as a result it speeds up brain reactions by improving synaptic transmission and development of the new neuronal network . Multiple paracrine factors and interleukins secreted by stem cells contribute to endogenous repair.
The mesenchymal stem cells also have paracrine effects, including delivery of molecules, such as angiogenic factors, growth factors, stem-cell homing factors, and cytokines that perform the following:
(1) Immune modulation
(2) reduce inflammation, scarring and the elimination of cellular debris;
(3) protecting neurons;
(4) promoting regeneration of local stem cells;
(5) angiogenesis with more blood supply;
(6) wound healing;
(7) providing a cell-based electrical ‘relay’ between neurons above and below the injury; to eventually ameliorate clinical deterioration.
Injections: We also combine Anti CD52 human clonal antibodies and Anti-cytokines monoclonal antibodies. It acts through alteration of the circulating lymphocyte pool and prolonged T lymphocyte depletion. This has an on-going reduction in inflammation, prevention of demyelization and axonal degeneration, and also enhance’s lysis functions of leukocyte cells.
