The first disease treated with stem cells was a severe form of anemia, called Fanconi anemia, 30 years ago. Since then there have been a lot of clinical studies on the efficiency and safety of stem cell treatment for a wide range of diseases.
In the case of stem cell treatments, they must, once transplanted into the body, integrate and differentiate to give birth to new and healthy cells depending on the area where they were infused. For example, for neurological diseases treated with stem cells, they will have to differentiate into specific types of neurons and more, they will need to know what types of neurons to connect to, once implanted.
Medical research and technology has long prevented and cured several infectious diseases. Yet, we were still on the lookout for ways to treat neurodegenerative diseases such as Dementia, Motor Neuron Diseases (MNDs), Parkinson’s, Autism, and Cerebral Palsy. But with the discovery of stem cell therapy, scores of patients suffering from these debilitating illnesses have a new ray of hope.
Stem cells have the potential to develop into different cells of the tissues (of the body) and the ability of self-renewal. When serving as a repair system, the stem cells divide without limit as long as the person is alive. As they divide, they remain as stem cells or develop into cells with more specialized functions, like a brain cell or a muscle cell.
Stem cells, from different sources, have three common properties:
– The stem cells do not have tissue-specific structures to perform specialized functions.
– They can grow into specialized cell types such as nerve cells, muscle cells, and blood cells.
– They can divide and replicate themselves as long as the person is alive.
Plexus, the brainchild of Dr Na’eem Sadiq, is an award-winning knowledge-based stem cell therapy centre that helps patients overcome acute and chronic neurological disorders. As India’s first ISO certified stem cell and rehabilitation centre, a leader in stem cell therapy in India, we spearhead multiple ground-breaking treatments that improve lives day after day.
