Stem Cell Therapy for Neurodegeneration in India
Permalink | View Comments (10) | Post Comment | | Posted by Reason

An example of early applications of stem cell research forging ahead outside the US: "While stem cells have been making news around the world for their potential, and are even being tried on patients, Dr N K Venkataramana, neurosurgeon, BGS Global Hospital in Bangalore, has successfully used the therapy on patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, cerebellar degeneration and cerebral palsy. 'I used adult mesenchymal stem cells derived from the bone marrow. They were transplanted into the brain through keyhole surgery. These stem cells multiply and thereby regenerate the damaged areas of the brain. This leads to reactivation of brain cells, resulting in recovery from the disease.' ... He created a state-of-the-art research facility - Advanced Neuro Science Allies - and began his research into the use of stem cell therapy three years ago. 'I picked out authentic mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow using a marker. The stem cells were purified and tried on animals for safety. Subsequently, we used the therapy on patients. ... Initially, the findings are that we are on the course to a complete cure. All the patients treated so far have a marked decrease in the need for medication. Their symptoms have reduced drastically. They have an increased feeling of well-being and it is obvious that they are recovering. However, there are still some factors to be addressed and understood.'

Dear Sir

This is regarding my 4 yr old daughter. From the beginning she was slow in achieving developmental milestones. In the beginning doctors told me that it is a case of developmental delay. Now she is 4 yr 7 month old, she cannot stand on her own and cannot speak. She can sit without support and do very little activities while sitting such as holding a toy or reaching out for toys etc. Now doctors are of the opinion that she is case of cerebral palsy and autism spectrum disorder.She also gets fever induced seizures especially the very first day of fever. I happened to read about stem cell therapy and would like to know the scope for the same in my daughter's case. My wife had delivered a baby boy 3 months back and we have stored the cord blood and tissue, thinking that it would be useful for my daughter. I request for your kind guidance in this regard.
