Multiple sclerosis occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin sheath protecting nerve cells. It affects 2.5 million people globally and can cause mild illness in some people and permanent disability in others.
MS is definitely an uncommon disease in India. Certain clinical characteristics, previously noted individually, have been confirmed to exist in India. When compared to MS in Western countries, the Indian cases show a relatively high incidence of optic nerve involvement (both at the onset and during the course of the disease). Neuromyelitis optica is also seen more frequently. MS may be more common in Northern as compared to Southern India.
Treatment involves managing the symptoms of multiple sclerosis as well as treating the disease before permanent damage causes symptoms. Treatment may include medications, physical and occupational therapy and experimental therapies.
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been under investigation as a potential treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) for over a decade, and several studies have indicated that this treatment can stabilize neurological disability in patients with this condition. Autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (into the bloodstream) has been tried in clinical trials around the world, to eliminate autoreactive lymphocytes and replace them with self-tolerant ones, thereby 'resetting' the immune system and halting the autoimmune process.
At our centre, intrathecal (into the fluid around the spinal cord and brain) autologous stem cell therapy is being used to address the disability caused as a consequence the disease process. The possibility of stem cell leading to stalling or reversal of disease process is still under evaluation.
At NeuroGen Brain and Spine Institute we provide a ray of hope to people who have none and thereby increase the quality of life.
NeuroGen Brain and Spine Institute is an institution which not just wants to give treatment to the patients but also take into consideration the overall well being of the patient.
The NeuroGen Brain & Spine Institute has been set up to help such patients get relief from their symptoms and physical disabilities using the safest and most effective available treatments and technologies from the field of the Neurosciences & Regenerative medicine in a professional & scientific as well as a holistic & caring manner.
