As far as my symptoms are concerned, my cognitive deficits are greatly improved. My thinking is clearer and I remember things better now. The weakness on my left side feels about 40% better as well as the numbness and tingling. My balance and gait issues are greatly improved. I can walk farther...Read more
General Facts About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is a severe and debilitating neurologic disorder affecting both men and women in the productive age. The cause of this disease is not yet known and clear. Proposed causes include genetic predisposition (though this disease is not regarded as genetic or hereditary), environmental factors, and viral infection. At present, multiple sclerosis affects more than 2 million people all over the world.
Now, multiple sclerosis is regarded as an autoimmune condition when the patient’s immune system attacks and, as the result, damages myelin layer (sheath) protecting nerves of the brain and spinal cord. With this kind of damage, signals from the brain to other parts of the body are slowed, distorted or even stopped.
People affected by multiple sclerosis may have a very wide range of different symptoms, depending on which brain/spinal cord area is affected by the disease.
Generally speaking, multiple sclerosis is a combination of two pathologic processes:
- inflammation (when immune system attacks cells of the central nervous system, and part of this attack is directed at myelin produced by oligodendrocytes; this damage causes relapses of the disease)
- neurodegeneration (when damaged nerve cells cannot be repaired and die back) causing steady progression of the symptoms and disability.
At the beginning, the body tries to repair the damage induced by the immune system, or reroutes the signals around the damaged areas, which results in the improvements, but some of the symptoms still persist. At later stages, own resources of the diseased person wear out, and the body is no longer unable to maintain the repair of all the damaged nerve cells, which means that they gradually die back.
Currently, there is no effective treatment or cure for multiple sclerosis. The main treatments offered aim at either symptoms mitigation, or immune system modulation. Medications that are currently used for treatment of multiple sclerosis, while modestly effective, do have side effects and can be poorly tolerated or not tolerated at all. Very often, people change several drugs in the course of treatment. Physical therapy can help to maintain the ability to function. Many patients pursue alternative treatments of all kinds.
Fetal Progenitor Cells in Multiple Sclerosis
Fetal progenitor cells have a great potential in multiple sclerosis as they
- easily penetrate into the brain as in most cases of multiple sclerosis blood brain barrier is damaged (stem cells penetrate through the undamaged barrier as well through different mechanisms)
- capable of self-renewal
- capable of production of specialized cells depending on the body’s needs (differentiation)
- prevent further damage of nerve cells (this mechanism is called neuroprotection), thus inhibit or terminate autoimmune aggression against nerve cells. In this way, fetal stem cells disrupt the core mechanism of the disease.
- repair damaged myelin layer: specialized stem cells are capable of myelin-producing cells generation. This process is called remyelination and is very important for achievement of a long-term remission.
- balance the immune system, thus preventing its attacks against itself. This process is known as immunomodulation.
- trigger or enhance the patient’s own dormant or impaired repair processes and mechanisms of cell replacement (these are regarded as paracrine effects).
Infinity Clinic professionals will study your case and tailor the effective program for you with regard to all major and minor health issues and conditions. With 30 types of fetal progenitor cells and 30 types of fetal tissue extracts, numerous combinations are possible for optimal effects.
Fetal progenitor cell therapy is also aimed at
- helping people with unmet clinical needs enjoy better health and life quality
- helping patients who are not responsive to the routine medical treatments
- helping patients wishing to reduce their dependence on medications and avoid adverse effects
Fetal Progenitor Cell Therapy Effects in Multiple Sclerosis
After the treatment, our patients report the following improvements:
- maintenance of stable condition
- alleviation of the disease course
- shorter and less frequent periods of relapses with much longer remissions
- reduced spastiticity in the extremities
- gait, balance and coordination improvements
- clearer speech
- cognitive improvements
- psychoemotional improvements
- powerful immune boosting
- better functioning of internal organs (heart, liver, kidneys etc.)
- improved life quality
- chance to resume work at early stages
Advantages of the Stem Cell Therapy in the Infinity Clinic
- optimal combination of fetal progenitor cell types and tissue extracts tailored for each case with regard to the main disease, its complications and co-morbidity
- extensive experience
- combination of different modes of administration (subcutaneous, intravenous, intrathecal, multi-point intramuscular) depending on the symptoms and severity
- plasmapheresis (elimination of toxins, free radicals etc. from plasma, body preparation for better fetal progenitor cell engraftment)
- advanced safety screening of the cells
- no adverse effects
- no rejection risk
- no cancer risk
- continuous follow-up
How to Apply for Treatment
For thorough case study, please, send the following medical records and data to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Current neurology report
- Current review of systems
- MRI of the brain and spine (all findings available including the latest (preferably performed 3 months before application date or even closer to it)
- Other instrumental and laboratory findings including blood test for viruses
- Ophthalmology report (in case of eye problems)
- Treatment in the past and present medications.
- Doctors’ plans
If medical records are not available, we will send you the forms that will help us to study your case.
Effects and their extent depend on many factors, including history, severity, co-morbidity etc. However, restoration of the nervous system is a long process requiring patience. Our specialists will not only perform treatment, but offer additional procedures and provide recommendations on further management.
