Stem Cell Treatment for Spinal Cord Injury

Stem Cell Treatment for Spinal Cord Injury

What is Spinal Cord Injury?

Spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when the spinal cord becomes damaged, most frequently, when motor car accidents, falls, acts of violence, or athletic injuries fracture ligaments and crush or transect the spinal cord.

Damage to the spinal cord generally leads to impairments or lack of muscle movement, muscular control, feeling and body controller.


Could stem cells help cure spinal cord injury?

Currently, post-accident care for spinal cord injury patients concentrates on extensive physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other rehabilitation treatments; instructing the wounded individual how to handle their disability.

A variety of printed papers and case studies support the feasibility of treating spinal cord injury with allogeneic human umbilical cord tissue-derived stem cells and autologous bone marrow-derived stem cells. Released improvements include enhanced ASIA scores, enhanced bladder and/or gut function, regained sexual role, and enhanced muscle control.

During government of umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells, we've observed developments in spinal cord trauma patients treated in our centers.


Which kinds of stem cells have been utilized to treat spinal cord injuries and how are they collected?

The stem cells used to treat spinal cord injuries in the Doctor stem from a human umbilical cord tissue (allogeneic mesenchymal). Umbilical cords are given by moms after ordinary, healthy births.

All donated umbilical cords are screened for viruses and germs to International Blood Bank Standards. Just a small fraction of donated umbilical cords pass our rigorous screening procedure.


Which are the benefits of treating spinal cord injury with allogeneic umbilical cord tissue-derived stem cells?

Considering that HUCT mesenchymal stem cells are immune system , mobile rejection is no problem and Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) matching isn't crucial. 

The stem cells together with the very best anti-inflammatory action, immune modulating capability, and capacity to stimulate regeneration could be screened and chosen. 

Allogeneic stem cells may be handled multiple times within the duration of times in uniform doses which feature high cell counts.  Umbilical cord tissue supplies an abundant source of mesenchymal stem cells. 

There's an increasing body of evidence demonstrating that umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells are somewhat more powerful than mesenchymal stem cells from different sources. 

No need to manage chemotherapy medications such as Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF or GCSF) to stimulate the bone marrow to create granulocytes and stem cells and then discharge them in the bloodstream.


Our mesenchymal stem cells and the US FDA: Why are they accepted?

Human umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) which were isolated to make master cell banks are now being used in America under the US FDA regulations.


Can the individual refuse this kind of stem cell?

The human body's immune system is not able to comprehend umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells as foreign and so they aren't rejected. HUCT stem cells are administered tens of thousands of times and there's never been one instance rejection. As a matter of fact, allogeneic (not the individual's personal ) mesenchymal stem cells have been accepted to take care of graft vs. host disease in Canada and New Zealand.

Umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells additionally proliferate/differentiate more effectively than"elderly" cells, like those found at the fat and so, they are regarded as more"potent".


Can someone out of the Tomorrow Doctor be following up with me once I return home?

Our health care team will be calling you in regular intervals to determine how you're doing. Periodic follow-up helps us assess general treatment efficiency. Thus, our medical team will follow up with you after 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, and one year.

How do I request more info?

You can contact us by phone - (661) 836 2226 and - (805) 235 2390.
