    Treatment for Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Spinal Muscular Atrophy is said to be genetic condition that can be treated through stem cell therapy. Since many years there was no treatment available for this condition, but through the innovation in the field of medical science of stem cell treatment, the treatment for Spinal Muscular Atrophy is possible.

    Global Stem Cell Care provides the best treatment for this genetic condition. They have a team of specialized doctors who have been treating patients for years. Being a hereditary disease, there is no major cause of this condition.

    Due to the loss of nerve cells responsible for movement in the patient’s body, this condition occurs. It is very important to take the right treatment for this condition. In the patient’s body, the motor neurons get affected, which hampers the movement.

    It is a rare genetic disorder that is found in babies. The patient does not have the power to control the muscles of the body. The legs become weak, and in most cases, the full body of the patient becomes weak.

    Do You Know About Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    There are many people who are unaware of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. This condition affects one in 7000 babies born globally.

    There are mainly four classifications of this condition given as follows.

    • Type I, which is the severe type, is also acknowledged as Werdnig-Hoffman disease.
    • In type II stage normally, infants do not show symptoms of SMA during the early embryonic stage
    • Type III is a less severe form and normally starts in early adulthood and gradually worsens as the patient’s age.
    • Type IV is the least severe disease category where weakness and muscle wasting usually begin in adulthood.

    As this condition is a genetic disease, there is no reasonable cause that has been known for this condition. The treatment of this condition is provided by Global Stem Cell Care. The treatments that are very effective for this condition are neural stem cell transplants that help the patient to regain muscle control. In this condition, the motor neurons get lost in the patient’s body, and through stem cell therapy, the lost neurons get regained in the body.

    Symptoms of Spinal Muscular Atrophy

    Understanding the symptoms of Spinal Muscular Atrophy is vital as then only the treatment will be started. Mainly in the patients, it has been seen that there is a weakness in the muscles of the legs and shoulders.
    This is the main symptom through which this condition can be identified. This condition does not remain stable as the weakness of the muscles continues to become weaker.

    In severe cases, the patient’s condition leads to complete paralysis and death. The treatment of Spinal Muscular Atrophy is now possible through stem cell therapy; hence, the patients suffering from the symptoms of this condition must get their treatment done from Global Stem Cell Care.

    The other symptoms that can be in the patients are that they have difficulties doing the physical work such as walking, making eye coordination, crawling, making hand and neck control, and issues in swallowing.

    There is also a higher risk in the patients who suffer from this condition as they can develop breathing problems due to failure in the lungs’ respiratory muscles.

    Major symptoms of this condition are given as follow:
    1. Weakness of muscle and breathing issues
    2. Less muscle mass and problems in eating or swallowing
    3. Loss of neck and head control
    4. Facial twitching and muscle changes
    5. Trembling of muscles
    6. Missing tendon reflexes
    7. Fasciculations
    8. Clubfoot
    9. Impotency, ED, and reduction in sexual potency

    Diagnosis

    Diagnosis is an important stage for the treatment of Spinal Muscular Atrophy. There are many tests that are done by the doctors to get confirmation of the diagnosis.

    To test the activity of the muscles and the symptoms of these conditions come up at the age of 18 months. The diagnosis can be done during pregnancy and also after the pregnancy.

    For hereditary testing, the blood samples are essential as then only the defective gene can be identified, which causes this condition.

    The doctor also makes sure to do a physical inspection to understand if there is a lack of muscle reflexes, any sign of muscle weakness, or Spontaneous twitching of muscle fibers. Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a genetic issue as it is a twofold passive autosomal disorder.

    • For Spinal Muscular Atrophy, the treatment of Stem Cell Therapy has proven to be really effective and successful.
    • Globally, this condition affects approximately one in 10,000 live births globally. The treatment of this condition is possible through Global Stem Cell Care.
    • Patients who have this condition them stem cell treatment is very promising. It is a very effective treatment which is done through the modification of the extracellular motor neuronal environment via a trophic and neuroprotective effect.
    • After stem cell transplantation, it has been seen that the patient's progression became slow.

    How Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Muscular Atrophy Works?

    What to Expect from Stem Cell Treatment for Spinal Muscular Atrophy?

    • The stem cell treatment really helps the patients to recover from this condition. The treatment procedures provided by Global Stem Cell Treatment have no side effects, and they provide healing and positive results to the patients.
    • The best of medical facilities and treatment is given to Global Stem Cell Care patients. The majority of the patients show remarkable improvements in their condition.
    • For more than ten years, Global Stem Cell Care has been healing patients and increasing their quality of life.
    • In various patients, the effects of the treatment vary due to different biological factors. The Global Stem Cell Care patients get the quality services as there is a protocol that is followed by the team of Global Stem Cell Care that includes testing for the inflammation developing factors before the treatment commences.
    • The testing is done during the treatment also. Research is being done on the efficacy of Allogeneic Stem Cell Therapy, and for that, the data is required for future prognosis to know the treatment after-effects on the patient.

    • Fine and gross motor improvements.

    • Improvement in swallowing.

    • Progression of disease gets reduced.

    Mechanism

    In the stem cell therapy of this condition, the Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are used as they are muti potent stem cells. These stem cells also help to improve the immune system of the patient.

    The MSCs transplantation upsurges neuron survival and prevents gliosis, as microglia and astrocytes are both the target and reason of neuroinflammation; MSCs can save neurons and oligodendrocytes from apoptosis via the release of trophic and anti-apoptotic molecules, occasioning in the induction of a neuroprotective microenvironment.

    Furthermore, Mesenchymal Stem Cells can promote the proliferation and maturation of local neural precursor cells, leading to their differentiation into mature neurons and oligodendrocytes.
