For more than two decades, stem cells have been sold in the media, cinema and television as a magical solution that opens the doors in medicine. However, those who enter more on the subject, do not take long to realize that their uses are, in a certain way, limited.
According to the International stem cell research society, there are still very few studies with favorable results where stem cells are used to meet diseases.
However, recent studies suggest that, precisely stem cells could mean an opportunity for those who suffer from multiple sclerosis.
HOW DOES MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS WORK?
In countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Hungary and Cyprus, statistically known for being those with more volume of cases, 1 in 300 people suffer from multiple sclerosis. In many of these cases, this disease derives in disability or reduced mobility, due to its aggressive attack on the nervous system.
Due to a disorder in the behavior of autoimmune cells, the organism attacks the myelin that covers each neuron, affecting communication between the brain and the rest of systems, organs and other tissues that make up the human body.
A NEW STUDY DESIGNED G¡FOR ACUTE CASES
At the beginning of 2023, the American Academy of Neurology published through its magazine ‘Neurology’ an Italian study where the use of stem cells in patients with progressive secondary multiple sclerosis was studied.
These types of patients, like others affected by the disease, are characterized by outbreaks and remissions of aggressive symptoms video porno, deriving in medium or long -term disability.
The study consisted of the injection of blood cells of a healthy body in the patient’s body, as a measure to replace sick cells.
HOW DID THE STUDY BE CARRIED OUT?
To perform the experiment, a retrospective analysis of 79 cases of active progressive secondary sclerosis was carried out. Each received a stem cell transplant, and then compare the behavior of the disease with a database of 1975 patients with similar pictures, but treated with drugs.
The two groups were segmented by age, sex and degree of disability, and each patient was assigned a score from 0 to 10, according to the expanded scale of the state of disability. Subsequently, the progress of his illness was studied in a period of 10 years.
At the beginning of the study, the average punctuation of the patients was 6.5, in need of moving using orthopedic or cane apparatus. However, over time, considerable improvement was observed in indicators for patients undergoing stem cell treatment.
ANALYSIS OF RESULTS
When performing an analysis of the cases, it could be concluded that the use of stem cells began to progressively reduce the progress of the disease in patients, allowing them an extension in their quality of life. The measure was, in numerous cases, much more effective than the use of conventional multiple sclerosis.
Although long -cell treatment with stem cells for this disease has already been considered effective, until then it had only been tested with more premature states of it. However, the treatment was effective even in patients with more serious and advanced paintings.
Without a doubt, this represents a hope for patients who, for one reason, handle an acute picture of the disease.
