Ultimate & Advanced treatment for Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (Disseminated sclerosis or Encephalomyelitis disseminata).

Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory, autoimmune disease of central nervous system. It destroys myelin, oligodendrocytes and axons affecting the brain and spinal cord. This results in loss of muscle control, vision, balance and sensation. It occurs in both males and females in a ratio of 1:3. A person is high at risk of developing this disease from 13 to 50years of age, which gradually declines thereafter.

Causes of Multiple sclerosis range from genetic mutations, environmental factor and viral infection. The symptoms start between the age of 20 and 40 with a trend of gradual improvement, but may relapse. Early symptoms of MS include blurred or double vision, thinking problems, weakness in arms or legs. The common symptoms are abnormal sensations, bladder problems, fatigue, sexual difficulties, tremors, speech problems, muscle spasms and very rare cases reported breathing problems and seizures.

There is no known cure for multiple sclerosis. Treatments attempt to improve function after an attack and prevent new attacks. Diagnosis of MS is based on ones medical history, Neurological examination, MRI, spinal taps, lumbar punctures.

Conventional methods followed to treat MS:

  • The use of the cannabis-derived drug Sativex.
  • Low Dose Naltrexone.
  • Massage.
  • Yoga.
  • Acupuncture.

 

Medications used to treat MS while modestly effective can have adverse effects and be poorly tolerated.

 

Stem Cell Treatment harnesses:

Immunomodulators-

  • Aubagio (teriflunomide).
  • Avonex (interferon).
  • Betaseron (interferon beta-1b).
  • Copaxone (glatiramer acetate).
  • Gilenya (fingolimod).
  • Novantrone (mitoxantrone).

 

Immunosuppressants-

  • Solu-Medrol.
  • Corticosteroids.
  • mitoxantrone (Novatrone).
  • Methotrexate.
  • mitoxantrone (Cytoxin).

Medications used to treat MS while modestly effective can have adverse effects and be poorly tolerated.

Clinical Course:

  • Relapsing remitting.
  • Secondary progressive.
  • Primary progressive.
  • Progressive relapsing.

 

An Operational team for treatment include:

  • Psychiatrist
  • Physiotherapist
  • Occupational therapist
  • Nutritionist,
  • Urologist,
  • Speech therapist.

Stem cell Therapy for MS:

Present stem cell therapy for MS includes immune-modulation or immunosuppressant along with novel approaches such as interferon, capaxone, or immune suppressants. All act in a non-specific manner blocking immune responses against myelin sheath. Mesenchymal stem cells have immune-regulatory properties that help in regeneration of myelin sheaths of affected neurons. Mesenchymal stem cells and T regulatory cells are embedded inside this tissue. Infusion of adult neural stem cell showed a significant reduction in axonal lesions in multiple locations. Several factors like Brain derived neutrophic factor and Neutrophic-3. Fyn tyrosine kinase is an additional factor that can increase the production of myelin base protein production for remyelination of axons.

Stem cell therapy helps to increase the blood circulation, myelin regeneration, mitochondrial energy production, dietary changes, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial and antioxidant factors.
