What is Muscular Dystrophy?
Muscular Dystrophy (MD) are a group of muscle disorders that generally appear before the age of 6, in which muscles of the body start deteriorating one after the other, making a patient weak with passage of time. In muscular dystrophy, the deterioration happens rapidly and progressively and ultimately reaches the muscles of the heart and respiration, leading to death.
The disorder is caused due lack of dystrophin, a type of protein, in the gene of the patient’s parent. Males are more likely to develop muscular dystrophy symptoms.
Fatigue & muscle weakness.
Mental retardation (possible, but does not worsen over time).
Difficulty with motor skills (running, hopping, jumping).
Progressive difficulty in walking.
As of now, the only way a MD patient can move is by using orthopaedic appliances such as braces and wheelchairs.
Stem Cell Therapy for Muscular Dystrophy
Stem cells are known to have a tangible application in the treatment for Muscular Dystrophy (MD). These cells, by property can regenerate affected muscles by inducing myogenesis and provide a decent symptomatic relief. While the expected deterioration of patients of MD is about 20% every year, absence of deterioration by that percentage after therapy is generally acknowledged as an improvement by most practicing doctors. Stem cell therapy can halt the progression of the disease which can prevent further complications of the disorder.
The strength, power, tone and re exes of muscles will improve with this therapy due to regeneration of new muscle fibres within the afflicted muscle bundle and this in turn should mitigate most of the symptoms.
