Neuroregeneration: Hope for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease

Neuroregeneration: Hope for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease gives out motor symptoms that are typically caused by the degeneration of dopamine-producing neurons in the left and right sides of the brain area (Substantia Nigra Pars Compacta) and affects the muscle motor control ability. Reversal and recovery from Parkinson’s disease will require neuroregeneration – the fortification, renewal, and rejuvenation of these motor neurons.

Alzheimer’s disease on the other hand is also a neurodegenerative disease that entails a progressive neurologic disorder that triggers the brain to shrink and eventually causes the death of the brain cells. Alzheimer’s disease can evolve into dementia – the continuous deterioration in the thinking, behavioral and social abilities of a person and his ability to function self-reliantly.

Neuroregeneration is the repair and regrowth of nervous tissues, cells, and cell products to aid the proper functioning of body organs. It may include the generation of new axons, glia, neurons, synapses, or myelin in the body system.

For these types of diseases, as many as 80% of the existing neurons will become ineffectual in the patients. However, a large percentage of these neurons are still alive, and will only require a ‘jump-start’ to continue to function. Neuroregeneration provides an opportunity for the stimulation of these neurons, signaling the restoration, growth, and synapse formation in the brain.

Is Stem Cell Therapy Effective for Nerve Regeneration?

There are many treatment options available that have promising results for patients with nerve degeneration, and stem cell therapy happens to be one. Stem cell therapy for nerve regeneration simply enhances tissue regeneration in the body and produces new neuron cells that will rejuvenate the body system.

The Schwann cells and mesenchymal stem cells in the body are regenerated, specifically in the fatty tissues and bone marrow cells of the patient’s body. Once they multiply, they are introduced into the damaged area. They’ll help in the formation of the new neuron cells that lead the body into adapting and producing new neuron cells.

Neuroregeneration for Parkinson’s disease

When the process of neuroregeneration is applied to Parkinson’s disease through the use of stem cells, the adult stem cells are required to be isolated from the patient’s brain. Eventually, cells will produce more dopamine levels and they’ll eventually get re-injected into the brain. After the transplant, the patient’s condition will most likely be seen to improve and experience a reduction in the trembling and muscle rigidity associated with Parkinson’s disease. Eventually, the symptoms of this disease will cease. This further shows that neurodegeneration, through stem cell transplants can be beneficial to treat Parkinson’s disease.

Neuroregeneration for Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s is a complex and fatal disease with no cure that involves progressive cell degeneration, beginning with the loss of brain cells that control thought, memory and language. It’s well-known that this disease is untreatable and degenerative with just a few temporary and palliative drug therapies. However, neural stem cell (NSC) graft is a form of neuroregeneration that presents a potential and innovative strategy for the treatment of many disorders of the central nervous system, particularly Alzheimer’s disease which has the possibility of providing a more permanent remedy than the present drug treatments.

Stem Cell Therapy for Stroke Patients

Stem cell therapy for stroke patients will use the stem cells that have been taken away from the bone marrow. The Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), contained in the bone marrow are the body’s source of cells which include red blood cells and white blood cells.

In addition to HSCs, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are also contained within the bone marrow and they can utilize both protective cellular and immunomodulatory effects believed to be important in autoimmune and neurological conditions like stroke. Stroke patients who receive stem cell therapy can receive it either through systemic administration or targeted administration methods.

Choosing the Right Facility for Neuroregeneration

Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease currently don’t have permanent cures. However, the symptoms can be treated with advanced restorative and neurodegenerative processes, rather than traditional medicine.

With our clinic conveniently located in Encino, California, Advanced Stem Cell Institute can offer the entire Los Angeles area a free consultation to examine their current health and to determine whether they’re a good candidate for stem cell therapy.

Our medical facility has recorded success in treating neurological disorders with stem cell therapy and helping patients to restore and repair the different cells throughout their bodies.

Neuropathy Los Angeles or Beverly Hills is always available, contact us today to schedule a meeting and discuss the first steps of your restorative process.
