Medicine become stem cells that were extracted from the bone marrow of rats and treated with certain chemicals. In the end, the scientists obtained cells that have the ability to restore myelin – the substance that makes up the sheath of nerve fibers, collapsing in multiple sclerosis. Transplantation of these cells to rodents suffering from this disease, it was discovered that they caught in the body and began to actively regenerate the damaged myelin nerve sheaths.
Stem cell treatment is able to best help patients in the early and middle stages of multiple sclerosis.
All the existing medicines and vitamins in MS give temporary relief and can not guarantee full recovery. The most common drug today is "Cladribine", which is prescribed to patients instead of injections and IVS. When conducting short courses of therapy "Cladribine" twice a year, the symptoms of multiple sclerosis are gradually smoothed out. Stem cell therapy is already practiced in the clinics of Israel and Germany, in other countries it is quite expensive and almost inaccessible to the General population.
How to be treated with stem cells
Clinical treatment of multiple sclerosis consists of three stages. At first the doctors take the biological material of the patient, which will be isolated and grown stem cells. This process takes about two weeks, during which the cell mass increase to 200 million units. In the second stage, the patient is administered the stem cells using a conventional intravenous drip under strict medical supervision.
The transplant procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, is painless, does not cause complications, no contraindications and lasts approximately 40 minutes.
In the third phase, re-injection of stem cells which is set two months after the first transplantation. The first results of the therapy becomes apparent six months after the end of treatment. The emotional state of the patient is normalized, increasing confidence in the recovery and return of motor function, restore impaired speech and coordination of movements. The patient becomes physically and intellectually healthy because areas of the brain affected by multiple sclerosis, almost completely regenerated and return the patient to life.
