Stem Cell Therapy for ALS in Brisbane, Australia
ALS Disease Overview
The amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as ALS and the Lou Gehrig's disease) is a progressive degeneration of the nerve cells (that control the patients’ striated muscles) in the brain and spinal cord. The affected neurons atrophy and disappear without showing signs of abnormalities. Next, muscle damage occurs due to the disappearance of the nerves that stimulate those muscles.
Stem Cell Treatment for ALS Overview
The procedure is done through the collection of peripheral blood (same as blood donation) - around 250 ~ 400ml depending on the patient's weight. The process is followed by 4 days of lab processing of the peripheral blood by conversion and incubation into pluripotent stem cells.
It's a 5 day procedure where the patient will only need to attend on day 1 for blood collection (30 minutes to 1 hour) and day 5 for stem cell reinfusion (2 – 3 hours).
