Ankylosing Spondylitis : Evidence of improvement with stem cell Treatment | Recent case study

Patient’s Treatment Timeline :

16.07.2013

A 39 years male patient was admitted our hospital for treatment of Ankylosing Spondylitis diagnosed 6 years back; with C/O Pain in Hip Joint & back increased since 6 months, occasional knee pain & numbness in all extremities.

Physical Examination: Stiffness and restricted movements in cervical & lumbar spine.

Pathological Findings: ANA & HLAB27 Positive

The Plan of Treatment:

  1. Autologus Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplant with Stromal factor

Bone Marrow & Adipose Tissue derived Mecenchymal Stem Cells with Stromal factor was transplanted through intravenous transplant.

As the Ankylosing Spondylitis is a auto immune disorder in which inflammation causes tissue damage, Stem Cell transplant helps by immunomodulatory & anti inflammatory action.

  1. Supplementation of deficient vitamins like D3, B12 and minerals like zinc, calcium; amino acids like glutathyon, argenine and proteins so as to maintain the micro environment needed for stem cell to differentiate and maintain the potency.
  2. Physiotherapy exercise & Acupuncture Therapy as per Chinese Traditional Method

Diet

The patient is recovering well with 40 % increased mobility and flexibility without pain.  The confidence level is increased.

Further two sessions of transplant is planned in next six months.

Stem Cell Treatment Procedure

Step 1

Patient Evaluation + Diagnostic Investigations

Step 2

Aspiration of Stem Cells from Bone Marrow and Adipose Tissues

Step 3

Processing of Stem Cells in Tissue Culture Laboratory

Step 4

Transplantation of stem cells

Step 5

Application of Allied Therapies

Stem Cell Treatment have shown wonderful improvements in Ankylosing Spondylitis. This treatment is available at our all centers in Mumbai and Benglore. After this treatment almost all our AS patients are now is good condition and enjoying there life to fullest.

Stem cells can cure Ankylosing spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis, previously known as Bechterew’s disease, (or syndrome) and Marie-Strümpell disease, is a chronic inflammatory disease of the axial skeleton with variable involvement of peripheral joints and nonarticular structures. AS is a form of spondyloarthritis, a chronic, inflammatory arthritis where immune mechanisms are thought to have a key role. It mainly affects joints in the spine and the sacroiliac joint in the pelvis, and can cause eventual fusion of the spine.

It is a member of the group of the spondyloarthropathies with a strong genetic predisposition. Complete fusion results in a complete rigidity of the spine, a condition known as “bamboo spine”. There is no cure for AS, although treatments and medications can reduce symptoms and pain.

Treatment protocols derived using stem cells aspired from bone marrow and adipose tissues will show immediate improvement in the condition of patient. Along with stem cells treatment, few tailored therapeutics can help to cure Ankylosing spondylitis in very short span of time.Image
