Basically a “blank” cell, an adult stem cell is capable of becoming another cell type in the body, such as a skin cell, a muscle cell, or a nerve cell. Adult stem cell therapy can be administered to help replace or even heal damaged tissues and cells, serving as a built-in repair system for the human body and replenishing other cells. TBI Therapy, founded and managed by Dr. John Hughes, D.O., treats traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients by combining regenerative therapies – including hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), intranasal platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, and intranasal stem cell therapy – with supplementary nutritional.
Traumatic brain injury is a devastating event for which current therapies are limited. In this report the authors discuss the current status of using adult stem cells to treat traumatic brain injury, including the basic cell types and potential mechanisms of action, preclinical data, and the initiation of clinical trials.Cited by: 74. Nov 01, 2016 · Treatment of severe, adult traumatic brain injury using an intravenously delivered autologous bone marrow mononuclear cell infusion is safe and logistically feasible. There appears to be a treatment signal as evidenced by central nervous system structural preservation, consistent with previous pediatric trial data.Cited by: 25.
What Stem Cell Therapy Can Do For Traumatic Brain Injury Therapy. Traumatic brain injury is a devastating condition that is most commonly associated with severe trauma, massive head injuries, multiple sclerosis, stroke, or other catastrophic injuries or side effects of diseases. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major health problem worldwide. Currently, there is no effective treatment to improve neural structural repair and functional recovery of patients in clinic. Recent studies suggest that adult neural stem/progenitor cells residing in the neurogenic regions in the adult mammalian brain may play regenerative and reparative roles in response to CNS injuries or Author: Andrew Rolfe, Dong Sun.
