Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Treatment with Stem Cells in Asia. In this video you will learn benefits of stem cell treatment for SMA.
Before the discovery of Adult Stem Cells, Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) had no cure or treatment.
Normally the only thing an SMA patient can do is try to keep the status quo and try to prevent it from getting worse. However, thanks to great advances made in Adult Stem Cell research, Spinal Muscular Atrophy is now able to be improved.
Adult Stem Cells (AKA Repair Stem Cells) can now help more than 100 diseases and conditions.
Spinal muscular atrophy, more commonly known as SMA, afflicts millions of individuals around the world. Considered a neuromuscular disease, the condition causes a degeneration or destruction of motor neurons, which transmit signals from the brain to the muscles. The condition causes eventual atrophy or wasting away of muscles throughout the body, and can affect all age groups and genders.
Muscle weakness, impaired movement and range of motion are the most common symptoms of SMA, caused by the inability of motor neurons from the spinal cord to reach the muscles. Patients may experience relatively minor symptoms to fatal symptoms, depending on the stage and manifestations of the disease process in any given individual.
While there is no known cure to date for SMA, stem cell therapies and technologies have shown positive results in treating a variety of symptoms associated with the condition. Gene replacement and stem cell replacement therapies involving the implantation of healthy and completely functional motor neurons into individuals diagnosed with the condition are showing promising results, especially in the increase of the production of the specific SMN 2 gene responsible for healthy motor neuron development.
