Stem Cell Treatments for Cerebral Palsy – Mary Washington’s Story

Sarah Washington and her daughter Mary. Mary is 2 years old and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when she was 4 months old. She was first treated at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama using human umbilical cord-derived stem cells. Mary received these stem cells intravenously over the course of 4 days. Her first treatment [...]

If you haven’t been following our story on stem cells since the beginning, check out our previous blog posts first: 1. Exploring Stem Cell Therapy for Cerebral Palsy: This is how we came to our decision and provides lots of background research as to why we started down this path. 2. Panama City – Hudsyn’s [...]

Dylan’s hope (Stem Cell Therapy for Cerebral Palsy)

The possibility of using stem cells to treat cerebral palsy has been suggested by several scientists based on the ability of these cells to: a) stimulate regeneration of damaged nervous system tissue; b) to prevent ongoing death of neurons; and c) to directly turn into, or "differentiate" into neurons. This is explained in the video [...]

Cord Blood Stem Cell Therapy for Cerebral Palsy in Clinical Trial

Cerebral palsy is characterized by hypoxia/reperfusion induced damaged to the brain in the perinatal period. It is manifested in four main types: a) Spastic, which occurs in 70-80% of cases and is associated with damage to the corticospinal tract or the motor cortex; b) Ataxic, occurs in 10%, is associated with damage to the cerebrum, [...]
