Stem Cell Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

Stem cell treatment for MS

Stem cell treatment for MS is a promising new approach to addressing the disease’s progression and its associated symptoms. Our stem cell therapy for MS addresses its progressive and incapacitating symptoms while also targeting nerve cell repair by utilizing the powerful healing mechanisms of mesenchymal stem cells derived from Wharton’s jelly.

The Condition

What is Multiple Sclerosis​?

Multiple Sclerosis is a serious condition that attacks the nervous system directly and gradually incapacitates the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. In severe cases, the patient may become paralyzed, blind, and experience a variety of unpredictable symptoms throughout their body.

Stem cell therapy for multiple sclerosis is a promising new approach to addressing the disease’s progression and its associated symptoms. Our stem cell treatment for MS addresses the progressive and incapacitating symptoms while also targeting nerve cell repair. It does this by utilizing the powerful healing mechanisms of mesenchymal stem cells derived from Wharton’s jelly.

Stem Cells, we know why

Stem Cell Therapy for MS: How does it work?

Our stem cell treatment for MS uses the healing properties of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Not only do MSCs stimulate nerve tissue repair, they also reduce inflammation and prevent further nerve cell death. MSCs can also detect changes in the body that cause pain or dysfunction. Once damage is detected, these healing cells – which act as central nervous system protectors – migrate to damaged myelin zones of brain tissue to repair them. However, MSCs are distributed throughout the body, and the concentration of MSCs in an affected area is usually insufficient to fight or alleviate a progressive disease like MS.

How Effective Stem Cells are

Stem Cell therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

Stemwell’s stem cell treatments for MS can immediately address its debilitating symptoms, while at the same time instigating a long-term strategy of healing and repair. The action of implanting Wharton’s jelly-derived stem cells into the affected area effectively floods it with pure MSCs, also known as “repair cells”. They: 

  • Actively slow down the disease’s progression
  • Stimulate cell and tissue regeneration
  • Prevent further cell death
  • Reduce scar tissue that prevents normal organ function
  • Decrease Inflammation
  • Stimulate the creation of new blood vessels

Stemwell’s proprietary delivery protocols are specifically designed to open up the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to ensure that the processed stem cells travel directly into the brain. This enables correct blood flow to be re-established, damaged nerve cells (or neurons) to be repaired and, most importantly, myelin sheathings to be restored. Overall, all this process plays a major part in halting MS’s future progression of symptoms.

Stemwell Procedures

Stemwell uses cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells ethically sourced from full-term human umbilical cords. We administer more than 300 million cells that are all thoroughly tested for viability before treatment. These cells are NOT a blood product; therefore, it is extremely safe and does not require HLA or phenotypic matching.

Before Traveling

Video call with one of our doctors, where patient’s condition and medical history will be discussed.

First day

The patient undergoes an initial evaluation and blood work by Stemwell’s doctor. The patient is later sent to rest at their hotel.

1.5 hours

Second day

Application of 3 Million x Kg of weight distributed in 2 intrathecal applications, under sedation in the surgery room and two endogenous applications.

Oral Detox in children.

Third day

5 sessions – Hyberbaric chamber 

(xxmin per session)

Fourth day

5 sessions – Transcranial Magnetotherapy 

(45min per session)

Fifth day

5 sessions Biophotomodulation 

(30min per session)

Multiple Sclerosis

Understanding Multiple Sclerosis

We all take simple daily tasks for granted, such as getting out of bed in the morning, walking, or even talking to our loved ones. All of these seemingly simple functions, however, are completely dependent on a functioning central nervous system, brain and spinal cord.

As an example, when a healthy person decides to get out of bed, their brain makes the decision to stand up. Nerve cells communicate with one another via pathways that connect them throughout the nervous system; they are then protected by myelin sheathings. The brain sends signals along this nervous network, through the spinal cord, and to the person’s extremities, causing him or her to stand up and out of bed.

However, in a person with MS, the myelin sheathings are mistakenly attacked by the person’s own immune system, destroying this protective cover and, as a result, the underlying nerve fiber is inevitably damaged. It is then impossible for nerve cells to transmit signals and perform their functions, so the person gradually loses control of their own body. As the disease progresses, ongoing inflammation and nerve tissue damage result in temporary and permanent symptoms such as numbness, paralysis, and blindness.

AutoImmune diseases

Which types of stem cells are used to treat autoimmune diseases, and how are they collected?

Stemwell collects the stem cells for MS treatment from human umbilical cord tissue. They and are used to treat autoimmune diseases (allogeneic mesenchymal). These stem cells are expanded in our cutting-edge laboratory.

The mesenchymal stem cells we use are recovered from donated umbilical cords following normal, healthy births. Each mother’s medical history is checked, and she is tested for infectious diseases. Prior to donation, each family provides written consent.

Before being approved for use in patients, all umbilical cord-derived stem cells are tested for infectious diseases in accordance with International Blood Bank Standards.

Only a small percentage of donated umbilical cords make it through our stringent screening process.
