Stem cells for the treatment of neurological disorders. It has been believed that nerve cells do not regenerate. In fact, in neural tissues also have stem cells, but they are not arranged uniformly in the nervous tissue, and are concentrated in several locations. In humans, the most concentration is in the olfactory bulb and is back gyrus of the hippocampus. These are the two places where neural stem cells are produced. Therefore, we do possess some potential for regeneration of nervous tissues.

Treatments for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
It is possible to use stem cells for the treatment of patients suffering from the effects of traumatic brain injury, stroke and other diseases of the central nervous system. Patients with brain injuries cannot be cured solely with surgical means, that is why researchers started exploring the ways that stem cells can be used to regenerate nerve tissues and treat brain damage.
Stem cell therapy for stroke
Strokes can be ischemic and hemorrhagic. In the first case, little blood flows through the vessels, causing ischemia, lack of oxygen, in the second case a vessel bursts and blood enters the head.
Clinical practice proved that the introduction of MSCs to stroke patients had an evident therapeutic effect: the state of the musculoskeletal system, motor skills and coordination improved significantly, fatigue and tiredness were reduced, general emotional and psychological state improved.
All this is possible because of the ability of stem cells to regenerate: instead of dead brain cells new cells are built.
Treatment of multiple sclerosis
Stem cells can be used to treat multiple sclerosis.
Multiple sclerosis (sclerosis disseminata) is a chronic demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Centers of multiple sclerosis are associated with autoimmune reaction that destroys myelin. That is a demyelinating disease. Myelin is a substance, which forms myelin sheath of nerve fibers. The myelin sheath is an electrically insulating sheath, which covers the axons of many neurons. (Axon is along slender projection of a nerve cell, by which nerve impulses come from the cell body to the innervated organs and other nerve cells).
Multiple sclerosis is quite a common disease. There are about 2 million patients with multiple sclerosis in Russia – more than 200 thousand.
After the stem cell therapy, the disease stops progressing. That is, we are able to stop the progression of the disease, and in many cases we observe significant improvement.
There is, for example, a patient who suffers from multiple sclerosis, who now can even go skiing, though earlier it seemed impossible.
I have never had a more meaningful visit with a medical professional such as I had with you this morning. You knew exactly my condition, why I was how I was... You made me feel like there was hope.
Your kindness and thoughtfulness was most appreciated and I must say, you really made me laugh.
We are in Kissimmee just now and am managing to play golf without any pain. We were over in Kissimmee in October 2014 and played golf for the first time since I had the stem cell replacement and couldn't believe that I had no pain at all. This is great.
The stem cell procedure was done here in the office and they used my own fat, my own bone marrow, and my own blood. It was very safe and I didn’t have any worries. More people should look into (stem cell treatments), and there’s really nothing to be worried about.
