Benefits of stem cells
Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).
Multiple sclerosis damages the myelin, an insulating layer that forms around the nerves of the central nervous system: the brain and spinal cord. It acts as a protector, similar to the insulation of an electrical cable.
Among the most common symptoms are decreased visual acuity, balance disturbances, loss of strength and sensation, fatigue, cognitive impairment, tremors, sleep disorders, seizures, or difficulty speaking and walking.
The potential of mesenchymal stem cells to treat multiple sclerosis has been confirmed.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells develop new healthy cells, reverse damage to the nervous system, and significantly improve symptoms.
Stem cells help:
- Produce proteins that support the growth and survival of neurons.
- Support the growth, development, and maintenance of blood vessels.
- “Restart” the immune system (known as immunomodulation), preventing the immune system from attacking nerve cells.
- Aid in the repair of damaged myelin sheaths, remyelinating the nerves and allowing their proper functioning again.
