Muscular Dystrophy

  Stem cell therapy for muscular dystrophy
WHAT IS Muscular Dystrophy (MD)

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is general term for a number of hereditary, progressive degenerative disorders affecting skeletal muscles, and often other organ systems whose manifestation is augmented by inflammatory mechanisms. Given this modality appears to function via suppression of underlying inflammation.

There are many different types of muscular dystrophy : -

1.Becker muscular dystrophy
2.Duchenne muscular dystrophy
3.Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy
4.Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy
5.Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy
6.Myotonia congenita
7.Myotonic dystrophy

STEM CELL SERVICES FOR Muscular Dystrophy (MD) : -

There is no cure for Muscular Dystrophy but stem cell therapy mainly focuses on the inflammatory response in Muscular Dystrophy as a target for mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy. In contrast to other cell based therapies attempted in DMD, Mesenchymal Stem Cells have the advantages to treat Muscular Dystrophy:-

a) ability to fuse with and genetically complement dystrophic muscle to regenerate and repair the dystrophic muscle
b) produce anti-inflammatory activities to stop the inflammation in MD
c) produce trophic factors that may augment activity of endogenous repair cells.

Follow-up with patients:-

Our medical staff members will be in contact with patients to get complete follow-up at 1, 3, 6 month intervals to monitor all the evaluation.
