Using Adipose-Derived Stem Cell Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis Treatment in Chicago
Adipose-derived stem cells are derived from the patient’s own body (autologous) from the adipose or fat tissue. Stromal vascular fraction (SVF) of adipose tissue is a rich source of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute follows an IRB approved protocol that yields 10–40 million stem cells. These stem cells are being used to treat many neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson’s disease.
Neurological Conditions Are Treated Using Stem Cell Therapy
Neurological conditions that can be treated using stem cell therapy include:
Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
MS involves destruction of the myelin sheath, which surrounds nerves, and causes major disability. Clinical studies show that stem cells implanted into an injured spinal cord were found to generate new nerve cells leading to locomotor and mobility recovery.
Over the course of two years, MS patients treated with stem cells showed a 52% reduction in MISS-29 scores.
This disease leads to a gradual loss of dopamine-containing nerve cells, causing tremors, rigidity, loss of mobility and postural instability. Stem cells have been found to offer long-lasting improvement through regeneration of nerve cells.
Patients who underwent treatment for Parkinson’s disease have shown improvement, with a success rate of 64.80%.
A stroke can result in loss of function on one side of the body. Patients treated for complications of stroke with autologous stem cells have experienced a success rate of 55%.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
ALS results in degeneration and dysfunction of motor neurons of the spinal cord, cerebral cortex, and brainstem. Stem cell therapy has been proven to establish functional synapses in rat subjects. When stem cells were delivered into the cerebrospinal fluid of rats with motor neuro injury, the researchers found the cells migrated to the spinal cord and induced motor function recovery through neuro-protective mechanisms.
Other neurological conditions
Other neurological conditions that can be treated with stem cell therapy include –
· Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)
· Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
· Post-Concussion Syndrome
· Stroke Recovery
Adipose derived stem cell therapy can repair degenerated, damaged, and injured structures, tissues, and organs. Stem cell treatment in Chicago at The Regenerative Stem Cell Institute can restore functionality by stimulating the body’s unique regenerative abilities. The field of regenerative medicine comprises several techniques and specialties, such as tissue engineering, molecular biology, and organ restoration.
