Stem Cell Transplants for Autism Spectrum Disorders


Stem Cell Therapy for Autism

Autism is recognized as a complicated developmental disability. Specialists think that Autism Spectrum Disorders present themselves during the first few years of an individual’s existence. The condition is an outcome of a neurological disorder which has an impact on the regular brain function, affecting the development of the person’s communication and social interaction abilities.

A wide range of social interactions and activities which includes a component of play and/or banter, plus non-verbal communication are the usual problems of individuals with autism.

ASD stands for Autism Spectrum Disorder and may occasionally be called  “Autistic Spectrum Disorder”. ASD and Autism mean exactly the same. Any developmental disabilities which is caused by a brain abnormality is considered ASD. An individual/child suffering from ASD usually has problems with socializing and he/she may have speech and language difficulties. An individual with ASD will usually also favors to stick to a set of behaviors and can resist any significant (or numerous minor) modifications to day-to-day activities.

What are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are primordial cells that may divide and differentiate into any and every other cell in the human body. This differentiation is often  into much more specialized cells inside your body. The 2 main kinds of stem cells are

Why use stem cells to treat kids with autism?

Kids with autism suffer from two significant dysfunctions:

  1. Hypoperfusion.
  2. Immune Dysregulation.

Hypo-perfusion is basically decreased blood flow towards the brain, which means that the brain doesn’t obtain sufficient oxygen and can’t function in the

autism-spectrum-disordersnormal way. If there is not sufficient blood flowing towards the brain, then the resulting outcome causes the brain cells to get swollen and producing  more nitric oxide. This in turn, breaks the cells to obtain an excessive amount of calcium, and this consequently damages the mitochondria (responsible for the power of cells).

Consequently, the brain cells are affected by the lack of food which lead to death of brain cells.

Immune dysregulation in kids with autism indicates that their immune systems don’t respond in a usual manner to stimulation. When the physical body signals towards the immune system that it currently need some help, (like when the brain becomes inflamed) the correct immune response and subsequent healing don’t happen in kids with autism. Rather, kids with autism frequently suffer from the autoimmune responses, some chronic inflammation, and they have incessantly suppressed immune systems.

The autoimmune response occurs when the body automatically attacks the big cells because they do not recognize your own body cells. Autoimmune disorders such as MS, Crohn’s and autism. The Immune dysregulation is an extremely apparent condition within the gastrointestinal well being of kids with autism. Most kids and patients suffer from signs and symptoms ranging from mild gas, diarrhea, inflammation of gastrointestinal systems, and lastly, bloating of the intestinal lesions.

Two types of the stem cells are especially helpful in relieving Autism and the immune dysregulation and hypo-perfusion which are the characteristic of kids with autism. Reversing hypoxia helps in the activation of the self-repair mechanisms. This neural proliferation is noticed after reperfusion in cases with cerebral ischemia.

Nevertheless, to our understanding, in order to stimulate angiogenesis (New blood vessels), the utilization of stem cells is now commonly used by many for treating autism. Adult Stem Cells have already been proven to be very safe, efficient and effective in treating children suffering with Autism.(23493959)

Our doctors use Autologous blood stem cells,dental pulp derived stem cells and fat derived stem cells to effectively help the proliferation of angiogenesis in numerous models of ischemia.(24362370)

Cell Treatments for ASD

The CD11b+, CD34+ fraction, that is roughly lesser than half of cord blood stem cell CD34+ was shown and demonstrated to acquire the capability to specialize into the endothelial cells. CD34+, VEGF-R3+ cells illustrated the capability to specialize into endothelial cells and had been in a position to extend into 40-fold expansion. Blood stem cells are usually adequate to induce neuroregeneration. We recommend that this kind of stem cell might be very helpful for the treatment of autism given the effectiveness of the cord blood CD34+ cells in inducing angiogenesis in locations of cerebral hypoperfusion.(24350413)

Proven Treatment for Autism Spectrum

Treatment Method :
Number of Stem Cell Injections:  2-6 Enriched MSC Injections per treatment stage. Multiple stages may be required for severe cases such as Rhetts or Asperger’s. (24410563)

Types of Injections:   Hematopoietic Mesenchymal Enriched Stem cells. The age and lack of physical development of a child may prohibit them from donating stem cells from their adipose (fat) tissues. If the patient is not eligible for Autologous therapy then Allogeneic HLA matched Mesenchymal cord blood derived stem cells or placenta derived CD34+ cells will be used. Depending on the patients requirements the treatment injections will be made via a Guided CT Scanner (when necessary) or through a non-invasive and painless Intravenous Drip without anesthesia. Direct injections or Intrathecal injections may be required in some cases.

Rehabilitation Post-Treatment:Physical and/or behavioral rehabilitation will be optional depending on the patients travel/time constraints. Complete physical, language and behavior rehab can be provided upon request for 2-6 hours per day and up to 6 days per week. Medical visas for longer travel and extended stay apartments or hotel accommodations for the patient and family can also be requested.

Cost of Treating Autism With Stem Cells

The treatment will require a minimum of 14-21 days in Bangkok.  Due to the varying degrees of ASD our medical team will need to qualify the potential patient before a detailed treatment protocol can be provided. Upon approval, a detailed treatment plan will be provided that will includes the specifics such as exact total number nights required in Thailand along with the total medical related costs (excluding accommodations or flights). To begin the pre-qualification process for our multi-stage treatment protocol for Autism please prepare your recent medical records such as Behavioral tests,Brain MRI / CT Scans or PET Scans and contact us today.

    We have an active 8 year old boy with autism. We have been looking at neural stem cell therapy to help us but there are several questions we have. Does mild inflammation in a womb trigger hyper-proliferation of cells? Can this cause the brain to somehow overgrow causing autistic behavior? Reply

    Dear Mr or Mrs, My son has diagnosised autism, he is 5 years old now. I am interested in stem cell treatment, I hope it can help my son. How much does it cost for stem cell autism treatment? Reply

    dear sir I have son name aarav he is four yrs plus he can't speak he walk in his toes frequently he put his hands in his two ears and always flapping hyper sir I want to how stem cell can help my son is there any side effect time needed and above all cost for the treatment thanks Reply

      Hi. We are trying to find the right treatment for our 4 year old child. She seems to be getting worse and we would like to try stem cells with a behavioral specialist to try to correct her autism problem. Please email us so we can get started. Reply
