Stem Cell Therapy for Ataxia
Ataxia occurs through a disruption in bodies equilibrium brought about primarily through a lesion in the frontal lobe.
Friedreich’s ataxia sclerosis, is another type of Ataxia but Friedreich’s is basically hereditary. Lesions similar to those found in multiple Sclerosis can be found from the lateral and dorsal columns from the spine. The lesions generally start during childhood are are accompanied by speech impairment, ataxia, scoliosis,peculiar movements, frequent hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and even paralysis.( 24708620)
Motor ataxia is the inability to manage the coordination of the muscles. Sensory ataxia is called such because of the proprioceptive area between the peripheral nerves and the motor cortex is lost. This loss results in uncoordinated movements, that becomes more apparent when an individual’s eyes are closed.
Ataxia-telangiectasia is a serious progressive form of cerebellar ataxia, that is related to ab-normal eye movements, oculocutaneous telangiectasia, immunodeficiency, and sinopulmonary disease.

Neural Cell Therapy for Ataxia
Stem cell treatments for Ataxia are without a doubt the most promising treatment solution for those seeing the ability to repair/reverse this kind of permanent brain damage. Stem cells are essentially un-specialized cells that can be differentiated into any type of cell or tissue in the human body. Stem cells are unique since they can reproduce themselves and divide indefinitely.( 23546346) Adult stem cells are able to also create specialized cells such as:
- Nerve cells
- Heart Tissues etc.
The ability to make new cells and tissues in the body indicates clearly that adult stem cells can be used to replace diseased and damaged body
tissues, organs and lesions for treatment of Ataxia with Stem Cells. Ataxia therapy with stem cells is non-invasive (No Surgery) and permanent.( 23598976)
Our Ataxia protocol seeks to repair damaged and/or diseased tissues brought about by injuries or even hereditary such as Spinal muscular atrophy.
Treating Ataxia With Stem Cells
Number of Stem Cell Infusions for Ataxia: 2-8 Infusions of Neural Cells per treatment
Type of Injections for Ataxia: Mesenchymal (MSc) Stem cells from the patients Peripheral Blood,Cord blood,Placenta derived (Allogeneic ) or Autologous derived stem cells) that are extracted and expanded and delivered over a series or through stages. Delivery of cells is done through Intravenous (IV), Intrathecally or via a lumbar puncture.( 19374296)
Rehabilitation Treatment for Ataxia: Rehabilitation therapy is optional and can be performed 2-4 hours per day upto 6 days per week. Medical visas and accommodations packages for extended stay can also be included at an additional cost.
Cost for the Ataxia Cell Therapy
The treatment for Ataxia with Lab Enriched Stem Cells will require a minimum of 14-21 days in Bangkok. Due to varying degrees of the disease our doctors will need to qualify potential patients before offering detailed treatment plan that includes an exact total number nights required along with total medical related costs excluding accommodations and flights. To begin the qualification process for our multi-stage treatment protocol please contact us today.
