Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS is a type of motor neuron ailment that attacks the nerve cells that controls the voluntary muscles. The disease is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, Charkot’s sclerosis and Charkot’s disease. Recent discoveries have shown the capabilities of stem cell repair mechanism and it acquires the regenerative capabilities to develop different types of cells such as brain cells, red blood cells and muscle cells etc. Cell transplantation treatment can restore essential cells including the motor neuron stocks to restock the microenvironment between the brain and spinal cord and to safeguard the motor neurons. Stem cell therapy combines different types of cells that rebuild and prevent damage of the motor neurons and regenerates new blood vessels to enhance the blood flow at the same time.
Every patient requires a personalized cell transplantation treatment depending on their medical condition. The therapy is suggested by the doctors after through check-up. It is previously mentioned that there is no cure for this disease and cell transplantation therapy can only improve the condition.
