Dr. Jesus Perez speaks about Stem Cell therapy at The Regenerative Medicine Institute.
A report in The Lancet Neurology reports on research that shows that some of the of the disability associated with the early stages of multiple sclerosis appears to have been reversed. The treatment works by resetting patients' immune systems using their own stem cells.
Richard Burt of Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago discusses the issue: "If you wait until there's neuro-degeneration, you're trying to close the barn door after the horse has already escaped.What you really want to do is stop the autoimmune attack before it causes nerve-cell damage”
The trial studied 23 patients with early relapsing-remitting stage of MS, who had not responded to treatment with interferon beta.
Stem cells were removed from the patients' bone marrow. Immune cells that were present in the extract were destroyed leaving naïve immune cells that do not see myelin as alien, and hence do not attack it.
Three years later, 17 of the patients had improved by at least one point on a standard disability scale, while none of the patients had deteriorated.
Burt concluded: "For the first time ever in the history of treating MS we have reversed disability.” Though he and other commentators did conclude that more trails are needed to confirm the results.
Adult Stem Cell therapy is an exciting break through therapeutic approach to managing health. Physicians world-wide acknowledge that stem cell therapies will revolutionize medicine in the coming years. However, Stem Cell therapy is considered a controversial treatment in some medical and regulatory circles, as the research and clinical trials are still in their infancy. As a result Regenerative Medicine Institute can and does not make any specific claims to the medical efficacy or safety of stem cell therapies that are offered.
All potential patients should consult with their own physician about stem cell therapy. The Regenerative Medicine Institute screens all patients and only accepts those that it feels would benefit from Stem Cell treatments. However, each patient is unique and no results can be guaranteed.
The Regenerative Medicine Institute will provide continuing updates, information on current research on stem cell therapeutics and research, helping patients and their consulting physicians make their own informed decisions on whether or not to pursue treatment.
