Stem cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica, under the direction of Dr. Mesén, is a pioneer in the use of Stem Cells Therapies in Costa Rica. At Stem Cells Transplant Institute, we use adult autologous stem cells for the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease.
Cell replacement therapies with stem cells are a very promising therapy, as it has been demonstrated in clinical practice. When dopamine is reintroduced in the central nervous system, decreases or reverses symptoms, this means that if stem cells can be induced into dopamine producer neurons and afterwards transplanted in affected zones, they could replace degenerated cells and recover its functionality.
Induced pluripotent stem cells derived from somatic cells of patients represent a powerful tool for biomedical research and may provide a source for replacement therapies. Studies show that fibroblasts from patients with idiopathic Parkinson’s disease can be efficiently reprogrammed and subsequently differentiated into dopaminergic neurons.
Using stem cell therapies offered at Stem Cells Transplant Institute, you can improve symptoms and signs of Parkinson’s disease such as:
- Slowed movement (bradykinesia)
- Rigid muscles
- Impaired posture and balance
- Loss of automatic movements
- Speech changes (softly, quickly, slur or hesitate before talking)
- Writing changes
Parkinson’s disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disease caused by the loss of midbrain neurons that synthesize the neurotransmitter dopamine. This neurotransmitter is responsible of the transmission of motor signals to the brain. Clinically, tremor, stiffness, and slow voluntary movements characterize Parkinson’s disease.
Current therapies are based on the use of dopamine precursors and the reduction of dopamine metabolism, however it does not modify the disease progression but only improve momentarily the symptoms
Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica is a pioneer entity in stem cells therapies, offering innovating and secure options for patients who do not respond to conventional treatment or patients that are looking for treatments that actually change de course of the disease. Costa Rica ranks as one of the best healthcare systems in the World, we offer high quality stem cells treatments for just a fraction of the price you get in the USA. Don´t hesitate to contact us.
