Currently the treatment for autism can be divided into behavioral, nutritional and medical approaches but they don't have any major benefits. Stem cells in the combination of current treatment can increase improvement for autism patient. We have our very specific stem cell treatment protocol for autism patient. Treatment with autologous bone marrow derived Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) provide multiple mechanisms including neuroprotection, immunomodulation and neuroregeneration in autism patients after intrathecally/intravenously transplantation.
We use bone marrow stem cell concentrate which contain all types of regenerative cells as following Mesenchymal stem cells (CD44+), Endothelial Stem Cells (CD31+), Hematopoietic stem cells (CD34+) that are useful for autism treatment. Hematopoietic stem cells (CD34+) which is the source of endothelial stem cells has very crucial role in the treatment of autism because when bone marrow derived CD34+ cells it induce the new blood vessels from preexisting arteries and we transplant improve blood flow to the brain. Mesenchymal stem cells (CD44+) has very important role to suppress inflammation in children with autism through secretion of anti-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-10, TGF-beta and IL-1.
Rehabilitation is the part of stem cell therapy. CP patients should have some kind of rehabilitation to help maximize their potential and to help teach techniques which make everyday life easier. Rehabilitation including physiotherapy provides enhanced environment to make stem cell more functional by helping the cell migrating and proliferation fast.
1. Physical therapy may improve your ability to perform daily activities and make you feel better.
2. Occupational therapy may help you perform daily activities more easily-especially those involving your hands and arms, such as grooming, dressing, and eating. Assistive devices may be used to help you perform daily tasks.
3. Speech therapy may improve your communication skills if cerebral palsy symptoms are making speaking difficult.
4. Cognitive retraining may help improve cognitive impairment caused by cerebral palsy
