What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson’s disease is a movement condition that affects the neurological system. Symptoms appear gradually, and may begin with a barely perceptible tremor in just one hand. Tremors are frequent, although they are often accompanied by stiffness or slowed mobility.
Your face may exhibit little or no expression in the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. When you walk, your arms may not swing. It’s possible that your voice may become hushed or slurred. The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease increase as the illness develops.
Although there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, medicines may help you feel better. Occasionally, your doctor may recommend surgery to improve your symptoms by regulating specific areas of your brain.
Cells that produce the chemical messenger dopamine deteriorate and die in Parkinson’s disease (PD). New dopamine cells introduced into the brain may assist to restore what is lost in Parkinson’s disease and decrease symptoms. A therapy like this may also help to minimise pharmaceutical side effects. Dyskinesia, or uncontrolled, involuntary movements, may result from long-term usage of the most frequently prescribed PD drug (levodopa) and the progression of the illness.
Many other kinds of cells, including dopamine cells, may be generated in the lab using stem cells. Adult cells (typically from the skin or blood) may be altered to behave like stem cells, resulting in induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells).
What is Ataxia?
Another form of ataxia is Friedreich’s ataxia sclerosis, which is mostly inherited. The lateral and dorsal columns of the spine have lesions comparable to those seen in multiple sclerosis and strokes. Speech impairment, ataxia, scoliosis, strange motions, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and even paralysis are common symptoms of the lesions, which usually begin in infancy.
The inability to control muscular coordination is known as motor ataxia. Because the proprioceptive region between the peripheral nerves and the motor brain is gone, sensory ataxia is named as such. Uncoordinated movements arise from this loss, which are more noticeable when an individual’s eyes are closed.
Ataxia-telangiectasia is a severe type of cerebellar ataxia associated with aberrant eye movements, oculocutaneous telangiectasia, immunodeficiency, and sinopulmonary illness.
Ataxia Stem Cell Therapy
For individuals hoping to heal or reverse motor neuron-related brain damage, Neural Cell Therapeutic for Ataxia and Autoimmune Cerebellar Ataxia is a potential treatment option. Stem cells are unspecialized cells that have the ability to develop into any kind of cell or tissue in the human body. Stem cells are unusual in that they may divide and proliferate forever. Adult stem cells may also generate specialised cells including bone, muscle, and nerve cells, as well as Renal Cells, Alveolar Cells, and Heart Tissues.
Adult stem cells may be utilised to replace sick and damaged bodily tissues, organs, and lesions for the treatment of Ataxia with Stem Cells since they have the capacity to create new cells and tissues in the body. Stem cell treatment for ataxia is non-invasive (no surgery) and long-lasting.
