Spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when the spinal cord becomes damaged, due accident, fall, or act of violence, or sport injuries. The injury may involve fracture of vertebrae, crushing or complete severance of spinal cord.
Damage to the spinal cord usually results in impairments or loss of muscle movement, muscle control, sensation and body system control from injury site to all organs below the injured site. Clinically the injury is classified as shown. There is not much, in way of help we can do.
- Since HUCT mesenchymal stem cells have no immune foot prints, there is no danger of cell rejection and HLA (Human Leukocyte Antigen) matching is not necessary.
- These cells have the best anti inflammatory activity, immune modulation and regenerative ability.
- Allogeneic stem cells can be administered several times in calibrated doses
- Umbilical cord tissue cells can be amplified several so, an abundant supply of mesenchymal stem cells is available.
- These mesenchymal stem cells are more robust than mesenchymal stem cells as compared to adipose derived or bone marrow derived mesenchymal cells.
- Umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells also proliferate/differentiate more efficiently than “older” cells, such as those found in the fat and therefore, they are considered to be more “potent”.
- The standard procedure takes 4 weeks
- Medical evaluation, blood testing, and bone marrow collection
- 8 intrathecal (spinal canal) injections of expanded umbilical cord tissue-derived stem cells
- 4 intravenous injections (IV) expanded umbilical cord tissue-derived stem cells
- 2 intrathecal (lumbar puncture) injections of bone marrow-derived stem cells
- 2 intravenous injections (IV) bone marrow-derived stem cells (upon availability after IT injections)
- 12 physical therapy sessions (throughout stay)
Proper follow-up is essential to monitor your condition after treatment. It also helps us evaluate treatment efficacy and improve our protocols based on reported outcomes over time.
Therefore, one of our medical staff will be calling you at the following intervals: 1 month, 3 months, 4 months, and 1 year.
