Stem Cell Therapy for Dementia

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells of a multicellular organism that is capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells of the same type, and from which certain other kinds of cell arise by differentiation. There are a number of diseases were harvested stem cells can be used therapeutically to repair damaged or lost cells. They have been used for joint repair and wound healing.

 

Signs and symptoms of dementia vary from patient to patient and there is a wide spectrum of clinical severity and associated conditions. Cognitive changes include memory loss, confusion, difficulties with language, communication, finding the right words, reasoning, solving problems, dealing with complicated tasks, organizing, and planning, etc. Furthermore, it can cause depression, personality changes, anxiety, paranoia, hallucinations etc.

Dementia is the next frontier for stem cell therapy. The medical community is now turning to stem cell therapy how it can treat dementia and Alzheimer’s. Dementia may be defined as a loss of cognitive or intellectual function. The most common type of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease. At present, there is no cure for it.

 

In the 90’s, it was discovered that stem cells exist in certain areas of the brain and that they constantly divide, producing new cells. This led to the research that focused on differentiating these from ordinary brain cells and studying how stem cells in the brain are regulated so that they can be stimulated to become the kind of nerve cells needed in the brain.

 

Patients with Alzheimer’s disease lack the stem cells as compared to those with healthy brains, but stem cells nevertheless do exist inside their brains as well. The reduction of stem cells is believed to be due to plaque formation in the brain and the cells.  There are now experimental drugs that stimulate stem cells to produce more nerve cells in animal models with Alzheimer’s. This causes stem cells to create nerve cells when introduced into the diseased brain. This result was shown to cause improvement in behaviors and memory testing in the animals. This is an exciting development as it can translate into successful therapies in humans as well.

 

Majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t dispensing safe and effective stem cell therapies. It is very important to differentiate between them and state-of-the-art treatment centers that base their therapeutic services on the latest research and use safe means of delivering these treatments. We have the most advanced stem cell procedures available today. We have highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and staff who are experienced and professionally trained in performing stem cell procedures. Moreover, we use only the most potent resources of viable stem cells that are harvested on the same day for procedures. We provide excellent post-procedural rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols to improve the likelihood of success.
