How Are Stem Cells Used in Treating Autism?

Autism is one of the few mental disorders that are still not completely understood by researchers. This has much to do with the fact that the disorder is defined as a Spectrum disorder meaning there are different levels of severity and types of symptoms. While understanding the disorder is difficult, treating it is even trickier. Stem Cells to Treat Diseases Scientists and researchers have observed that stem cells present a viable option for the treatment of several diseases. The application of graphene scaffolds of extracellular vesicle-based therapies provides a very diverse range of applications according to Biomed Central. Scientists have

Can Autism Be Cured? Common Treatments And A Ray Of Hope

Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that is hard to define. The difficulty with giving the condition a specific definition arises from the fact that it manifests differently in all individuals. The Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) As Autism has so many different manifestations and affects each individual at a varying level, experts prefer to call it Autism Spectrum Disorder. Instead of being regarded as a disease with specific symptoms, it is referred to as a disorder whose manifestations can vary from mild to very severe on a spectrum. Is ASD Curable? According to the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, as

Stem Cell Therapy For Autism – A Review of Researches Through Time

Overview Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are mostly inherent and affect the brain. It is therefore natural to treat genes and help the brain regenerate cells to treat Autism. Let us explore the promise of stem cell therapy for Autism and what the past and current medical knowledge say about stem cell therapy’s effectiveness. Early Developments Around 2009, a team of medical experts, led by Dr. Philip Schwartz, began working on stem cell therapy for Autism. What is crucial about his work is the technique they used. Dr. Schwartz used skin cells to develop brain cells from Autistic children that could

The Ultimate Guide on Autism Spectrum Disorder: Symptoms, Causes, and Treatments

Diseases with physical symptoms are relatively easy to identify and treat. However, the same cannot be said for mental disorders. One such disorder that has often eluded understanding is the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). What is ASD?  The American Psychiatric Association has created a guide called the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) and updates it timely with newer developments in the field. The latest manual termed the DSM-5 describes ASD as a cause for difficulty in communicating among people, limiting interests, and hindering functioning at school or work. The disorder is related to brain development and therefore

Difference Between Autism And Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism is a lifelong neurological condition that affects how affected individuals perceive the world, and the way they behave, interact, and communicate with others. Simply put, autistic people hear, see, and feel the world in a different way to other people. Autism has different ranges. This means that some individuals are affected more than others. For example, some people with autism do not use spoken language, while others have a firm command of it, but they may find it challenging to understand properly what other people mean. They all have different challenges, abilities, and strengths which affect their lives in various ways

Autism During Coronavirus Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has affected day to day activities for most individuals around the world and completely overturned the life of autistic people and their families. Pandemics are the same as other disasters in their fatalities, unpredictability, and persistent effects. Yet, they are different from disasters as they prevent people from gathering and converging and instead demand the opposite reactions of isolation, separation, and quarantine. These factors cause interference within family norms and rituals that usually protect family bonding during any kind of crisis. Such norms are especially relevant to the population with ASD, where repetitive interests and behaviors are

What Are the Types of Autism Spectrum Disorders?

The term autism refers to a neurological imbalance that may cause several troublesome symptoms. People who are suffering from autism disorder face difficulties in social integration and are unable to understand the feelings and thinking of other people. They might face difficulties in communication, either with words or through emotions, outward appearances, and contact. Furthermore, individuals with autism may have issues with learning. Their abilities may grow unevenly. For instance, they could experience difficulty in communicating, but such people are very talented and are good at crafting, music, and math. Along these lines, they may excel in the trial of

How Stem Cell Therapy Can Significantly Help Kids With Autism

Statistical data by the CDC show that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects children more than adults and currently there are more than 18 per 1,000 children with ASD in the US. ASD is a neurological disorder that is characterized by a restricted interest, deficit of communicationand social interaction, and repetitive behavior (both verbal and nonverbal). Kids with autism spectrum disorder also commonly experience problems with their gut, sleep disorders, and seizures. While the cause of ASD is yet to be determined, studies and clinical trials have shown many factors that may contribute to ASD’s development, such as decreased blood flow

Genetics of Autism

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complicated condition with an unknown cause and no definitive treatment. Scientists believe that ASD is in part genetically inherited in addition to environmental factors. In fact, hundreds of gene variants have been linked to autism, but their consequences are highly variable and some are related to other syndromes. New advancements in genetics research suggest that there may genetic causes that physicians are able to target now. What is autism? Autism is a disorder that is characterized by difficulty with social interaction, emotional processing, and sensory processing. As a spectrum disorder, some patients are high-
