Patient’s Treatment Timeline :
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Physiotherapy exercise & Acupuncture Therapy as per Chinese Traditional Method
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.
