Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a disease resulting from defects in muscle proteins (reduced dystrophin), leading to the death of muscle cells and tissue. Progressive muscle weakness results. Muscle biopsy is used for diagnosis with laboratory evaluation (elevated creatine phosphokinase) and EMG findings being suggestive of MD. There are different types of MD leading to different clinical manifestations. With limited treatment options there is hope that adipose derived stem cells may be effective in regenerating muscle damaged by MD. Research has been successful using stem cells to regenerate muscle tissue using human stem cells for MD in mice.
Muscular Dystrophy and OC Regenerative Medicine
OC Regenerative Medicine utilizes a specific SVF deployment protocol for MD. The immuno-regulatory and anti-inflammatory properties of SVF (rich in mesenchymal stem cells and growth factors) are aimed at reducing or repairing the damage to the nervous tissue. The protocol optimizes transport of the SVF across the blood-brain barrier to improve central nervous system delivery. The entire cellular surgical procedure takes approximately three hours and is performed at our outpatient facility.
OC Regenerative Medicine cares about our MD patients. We take the time to listen to our patients and discuss options. We take pride in deploying the best protocols to help our patients achieve their goals. By filling out Confidential Candidate Application, we will answer the questions and concerns you may have about our protocols for MD.
