Stem Cell Therapy for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) - also know as Lou Gehrig's disease, motor neurone disease and sometimes Charcot disease - affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The function of these cells, which are also called motor neurones, is to carry the brain’s impulses to all the muscles in the body via spinal cord. With the progression of ALS, motor neurone degenerate and eventually die, leaving the brain unable to initiate and control muscle movement. The patient may also become totally paralysed.
The weakness eventually hampers chewing, swallowing, speaking and breathing.
Early symptoms of ALS include:
Difficulty walking, and doing normal daily activities.
Weakness in legs, feet, ankle.
Hand weakness or clumsiness.
Slurring of speech, trouble in swallowing.
Muscle cramps, twitching arms, shoulders, tongue.
Difficulty holding head up.
Stem Cell Therapy for ALS
Stem cells are known to have a tangible application in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). This can be observed in the following published literature:
As observed in the above literature, symptoms of ALS, including fasciculations, cramps, tight and stiff muscles (spasticity), muscle weakness affecting an arm or a leg, slurred and nasal speech, or difficulty chewing or swallowing may improve considerably with improvement in motor performance after therapy.
