Spinal Muscular Dystrophy (SMD)
Spinal muscular dystrophy is a genetic disorder characterized by weakness and wasting (dystrophy) in muscles used for movement (skeletal muscles). It is caused by a loss of specialized nerve cells, called motor neurons that control muscle movement. Spinal muscular dystrophy disorder causes progressive muscle wasting and mobility impairment. Proximal muscles, of arms and legs muscles that are closer to the torso and respiratory muscles are affected first. It is due to a gene mutation which may be present in either parent. To develop this condition a individual must inherit two faulty genes from both the parents.
Stem Cells Therapy: Stemcells Medicare Protocol
We at Stem Cell Medicare have been giving treatment to patients for neuro-degenerative diseases with autologous mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow, with great success. From half the bone marrow stem cells are separated by special machine and injected by intra-thecal injection, the remaining bone marrow is sent to laboratory for amplification of cells and imparting cytoplasmic markers for making neuro progenitor cells. These progenitor cells are injected by intra venous drip.
We strive to design protocol for each patient to suit his needs. The technique is quite effective, safe and without any side effects.
