Autism

Autism Treatment in Mason City

Autism is a spectrum of disorders characterized by marked abnormalities in communication and social interactions. Two common findings among children with this disorder are diminished oxygenation in specific areas of the brain and a chronic immunologically mediated inflammatory condition in the gut.

Current investigative therapies for autism attempt to reverse these abnormalities through administration of antibiotics, anti‐inflammatory agents, and hyperbaric oxygen. Unfortunately, none of these approaches address the root causes of oxygen deprivation and intestinal inflammation.

Stem Cell Therapy for Autism

Umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells may help treat autism. The rationale behind stem cell therapy for autism is that autism, and its degree of severity, has been significantly correlated with inflammatory and neuro-inflammatory cytokines including macrophage-derived chemokine (MDC) and thymus and activation-regulated chemokine (TARC). Intravenous administration of umbilical cord MSCs has been shown in multiple clinical trials to decrease inflammation. Decreasing inflammation in the autistic patient may alleviate symptoms of autism.

Advantages of Using Mesenchymal Stem Cells for Treating Patients with Autism :

  • Mesenchymal stem cells are immune system privileged, cell rejection is not an issue and Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) matching is not necessary.
  • Stem cells with the best anti-inflammatory activity, immune modulating capacity, and ability to stimulate regeneration can be screened and selected.
  • Umbilical cord tissue provides an abundant supply of mesenchymal stem cells.
  • No need to collect stem cells from the patient’s hip bone or fat under anesthesia, which especially for small children and their parents, can be an unpleasant ordeal.
  • Umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells are more robust than mesenchymal stem cells from other sources.

How are Stem Cells Administered?

Allogeneic stem cells can be administered multiple times over the course of days in uniform dosages that contain high cell counts. Concentrated umbilical cord stem cells are administered intravenously.
