Huntington’s disease and Stem Cell Therapy
Huntington’s disease is an inherited disease that causes the nerve cells in the brain to get damaged. It creates a severe impact on a person’s ability to move, and think and even leads to psychiatric disorders.
It appears at any age, but most of the people who suffer from Huntington’s disease are in their 30s and 40s.
Symptoms of Huntington’s disease:
Symptoms vary from person to person, but some of the most common signs of the presence of the disease are involuntary jerking movements and severe muscle problems, slow or unusual eye movements, difficulty in speech, and swallowing food.
As it progresses, it hampers the ability of a person to focus on tasks, it creates a loss of control, impulsiveness, and even sexual promiscuity. Eventually, a Huntington’s disease patient loses the ability to learn new information and loses awareness of reality.
Because of the lack of control over their daily life, it leads to feelings of irritability, sadness, social withdrawal, insomnia and severe fatigue, and loss of energy. The patient suffering from it might even have frequent thoughts of death, even suicide.
Some patients begin to suffer from an obsessive-compulsive disorder wherein they perform recurrent and repetitive behaviors. Mania, or overactivity, an inflated sense of self-esteem, and alternating episodes of depression and mania could become a full-blown bipolar disorder.
Present Cure for Huntington’s Disease:
There is no current cure for Huntington’s disease. Doctors can only hamper the symptoms from getting worse but totally eradicating it remains to be seen.
This is the reason why medical researchers, pharmaceutical labs, doctors, and research professors are delving into the study of Stem Cell Therapy- particularly the use of Mesenchymal stem cells to help find a solution.
Huntington’s disease is a late-onset neurodegenerative disease that leads to progressive loss of spiny neurons in the basal ganglia.
Doctors are looking into the development of stem cell therapies for Huntington’s disease to replace lost neurons. The goal is to prevent further death of the cells.
In several studies published, neural stem and progenitor cells used as allotransplants and xenografts showed positive signs and capacity to survive transplantation and differentiation in mature neurons, resulting in improvements in behavior.
Transplanting stem cells from animal models showed that stem cells sourced from non-neural tissue, particularly mesenchymal derived stem cells lead to growth and significant improvements. There is no doubt as to its efficacy with animals. What remains to be resolved is how to solve the availability of these stem cells, as well as ethical issues so human trials can be conducted.
Currently, Mesenchymal stem cells are proven effective for use in various diseases such as HIV/AIDS, blood disorders, and various forms of cancer including heart disease but it has yet to be approved for Huntington’s disease.
The clinical uses of cell replacement therapy in neurodegenerative diseases have been investigated for the last 20 years and much exciting progress such as this has been made.
Feeling Good At Any Age The One Stop Rejuvenation Center ( FGAAA) in West Covina, California is one of the leading stem cell therapy clinics in the world that offer premium quality products and the latest available stem cell treatments for a variety of health conditions like chronic heart failure, chronic kidney disease, and type 1 diabetes, among others.
Stem Cell Advocates
Stem Cell therapy is the reason for the phenomenal improvements that allow Lourdes Duque Baron and Michael York to continue living with amazing energy and boosted immune systems.
Receivers of billions of stem cells both attest to the truth of this rejuvenating and immensely powerful treatment.
Michael York a highly respected A-list actor became an advocate for stem cells after receiving treatment for his Amyloidosis and Multiple Myeloma.
While 75-year-old Lourdes Duque Baron experienced the healing of her Osteoporosis by way of stem cell therapy.
