Chances are, you have or know of someone who has been directly impacted by the challenges autism can bring in life. Autism is a spectrum of disorders characterized by marked abnormalities in communication and social interactions. Common characteristics of people with autism can include:
- Difficulty with speech or language
- Sensory sensitivities
- Behavioral issues, such as increased aggression or tantrums
Living with autism, having a child with autism, or caring for a friend or loved one with autism can be challenging. That’s why it is important to seek out support or therapies for autism that work best for your situation. Various strategies currently exist for mitigating the effects of autism, including stem cell therapy.
What is Stem Cell Therapy? How Does It Work?
Stem cell therapy is a type of regenerative medicine that is unique to each patient depending on their condition and needs. Stem cells not only have the power to potentially treat patients with autism, but they are also being used to treat autoimmune diseases, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, sports injuries, and more.
You can find stem cells in most tissues in the body, including:
- Human umbilical cord tissue
- Bone marrow
- Peripheral blood
These types of stem cells can be injected into the body and used to treat different conditions.
At Stem Cell Institute, we use Golden Cells™ for the treatment of autism [also referred to as Human Umbilical Cord Tissue Mesenchymal Stem Cells (HUCT MSCs)]. These proprietary cells are the culmination of two decades of research by renowned applied stem cell research scientist, Neil Riordan, PA, PhD.
The stem cells are processed at Medistem Panama, Dr. Riordan’s lab in Panama. We have found that these cells modulate the immune system, reduce inflammation, and proliferate more efficiently than other types of stem cells.
Can Stem Cell Therapy Be Used for Treating Autism?
Stem cell therapy with Golden Cells™ is being used to help improve the lives of those living with autism.
Children with autism often experience diminished oxygenation in the brain and chronic inflammation in the gut. Stem cell treatments with intravenous infusions of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can potentially alleviate common symptoms of autism by decreasing that inflammation, helping patients with autism make impressive progress.
The National Center for Biotechnology Information also backs up these findings by noting that MSCs exhibit paracrine secretion and properties of an immune system modulator, which makes them a promising potential candidate for treating autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).
The Stem Cell Treatment Process for Autism at Stem Cell Institute
Our process for treating autism with stem cell therapy is research-backed and thorough. We only offer the highest quality stem cells to our patients.
- Umbilical cords are donated by mothers after normal, healthy births.
- The umbilical cords are then sent to the laboratory, where mesenchymal stem cells are isolated from the cord tissue. These stem cells go through a very high throughput screening process to find cells that we know have the best anti-inflammatory activity, the best immune-modulating capacity, and the best ability to stimulate regeneration. In order to ensure safety, all umbilical cord-derived stem cells are screened for viruses and bacteria to International Blood Bank Standards.
- Once the assessment is complete, the stem cells are administered to the patient during the treatment process.
When treating autism, our human umbilical cord-derived Golden Cells™ are ideal because they allow our physicians to administer uniform doses. The stem cells are donated by healthy mothers, so they do not require any stem cell collection from the patient, and therefore no anesthesia. For autistic children and their parents, this can make the treatment experience much more pleasant.
Additionally, the stem cells we use are collected right after normal and healthy births. This makes human umbilical cord-derived stem cells much more potent than their “older” counterparts, like the stem cells derived from bone marrow.
Stem Cell Therapy for Autism – Success Stories
The Kelley Family watched their son Kenneth Kelley hit developmental milestones and achieve increased independence after receiving stem cell therapy for autism at Stem Cell Institute. Prior to stem cell therapy, Kenneth couldn’t read, he lacked awareness of his surroundings, and he needed increased support to help him with everyday tasks.
Each time that Kenneth came back to Stem Cell Institute for his stem cell treatment, his family saw improvements. By helping to manage Kenneth’s aggression, normalize his brain functionality, and increase his independence, stem cells truly changed the Kelleys’ lives.
“Our son is now thriving in ways I once thought would be impossible.”
Marty Kelley, Kenneth’s mother
