Stem Cell Therapy To Treat Thalassemia
Thalassemia is a disorder that is inherited from parents, and it cannot be treated by medication. Those who have it suffer from diminished oxygen supply, their body has less hemoglobin than normal.
Thalassemia Signs and Symptoms:
- Pale or yellowish skin
- Facial bone deformities
- Slow growth
- Abdominal swelling
- Dark urine
Doctors and medical researchers alike are feeling hopeful about stem cell therapy as it may be able to help alleviate the symptoms.
Moderate symptoms of this disease cause body weakness, fatigue, abdominal swelling, dark urine, and breathlessness in childhood. Symptoms mimic that of anemia, and as the years go it becomes severe.
It requires a patient to undergo frequent blood transfusions to regain a fresh supply of red healthy blood cells. While blood transfusion provides relief to the symptoms, it can cause iron overload, and the blood deposited in the body can result in blood-related infections like hepatitis. It also increases the risk of receiving blood infected with HIV.
Conventional treatments do more harm than good in the long run, this is why stem cell therapy is being looked into. Rejuvenation therapies and the use of Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell (blood stem cells) transplantation have been considered the only curative treatment for thalassemia.
How can stem cell therapy help?
Stem cell therapy replenishes the healthy pool of blood-forming stem cells or master cells of the body. This is sourced from the bone marrow as it is the most potent source of healthy specialized blood and tissue forming cells.
The donor of fresh stem cells should be a first-degree relative, because one cannot use a patient’s own blood due to the fact that it has already been affected by a genetic mutation, thus increasing the chances of side effects.
To manage issues, doctors opt to use Mesenchymal stem cells which are known to have immune system regulating properties. This will reduce the rejection-related issues when it comes to the use of hematopoietic stem cells. MSCs can also reduce immunity-related side effects.
With a combined approach, patients are expected to achieve long-term remission from the symptoms caused by Thalassemia without any major side effects.
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.
NEW BREED OF HOMO SAPIENS
To further understand the immense value and possibilities of stem cell therapy Lourdes Duque Baron, a staunch stem cell awareness advocate will release the book New Breed of Homo Sapiens.
