Delivering High-dose Stem Cell Therapy
While UCMSC stem cells can protect damaged motor neurons (which are the neurons affected in MND patients) and promote their regeneration, UCBSC stem cells can create new blood vessels to improve overall blood flow to the damaged area, leading to better cellular function.
Our stem cell therapy for Motor Neuron Diseases can potentially bring improvements in Motor Function, Balance, Coordination, Muscle Tone and Strength, Fatigue, Tremors and slow down further regression.*
It is important to remember that the treatment is not a cure. ALS, PLS and other MNDs are progressive conditions and the aim of the treatment is to temporarily reverse the disease symptoms to achieve better quality of life. Upon receiving your medical information our doctors can give you additional guidance regarding your particular condition.
*As with any stem cell therapy, improvements may vary from patient to patient and cannot be guaranteed.
What Makes This MND Treatment Unique?
We understand that Motor Neuron Diseases like ALS and PLS are progressive conditions and that time, cost, and effectiveness matter. In order to maximize the efficiency and minimize the cost, this specially designed MND protocol utilizes high dosage packs of UCMSC stem cells in addition to the traditional UCBSC stem cells. This unique protocol allows for only 4 injections of stem cells totaling more than 200 million cells over 8 days only. Please see below to compare the protocols.

Beike Biotechnology is partnered with the Better Being Hospital (BBH) in Bangkok, Thailand, to provide the most extensive treatment available for our patients. This partnership brings stem cells therapy to another level as BBH is the first accredited center in Asia for functional medicine.

The medical team at the center uses a combination of two injection methods for our patients diagnosed with Motor Neuron Diseases: intravenous and lumbar puncture. For details regarding the purpose and procedure of each injection type please click below:
Intravenous Injection (IV)
Based on the clinical data and research stem cells do cross the blood-brain-barrier when injected systemically thus IVs injections carry the same treatment effectiveness as compared to spinal injections. Moreover hematopoietic stem cells (which are part of our UCBSC stem cells) tend to work better when injected systemically.
The Intravenous (IV) delivery method is a very simple process and should already be familiar to most patients. A tubing line with a catheter tip threaded over a needle is placed into the patient’s vein. Once proper placement is obtained, the needle portion is removed and the flexible plastic catheter is left in place in the vein with the tubing attached. The stem cell solution mixed with the cord blood serum will be administered through the IV (after the evaluation by local medical staff, Dexamethasone may be considered beforehand to avoid any potential allergic reactions). Typically no sedation is required for this procedure. The entire IV injection process takes less than 45 minutes to complete.
Lumbar Puncture (LP)
A lumbar puncture is also commonly referred to as a spinal tap. It is a procedure used to access the cerebrospinal fluid of the brain and spinal cord and helps to deliver stem cells directly into the cerebral spinal fluid, bypassing the blood-brain barrier. Our doctors have determined that this is the least invasive method for delivering stem cells directly into the central nervous system. Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) is used by the body to provide protection for the brain and spinal cord, limiting the possibility of injury to these areas. The body constantly produces CSF and thus any withdrawn fluid is naturally replaced within a few hours.
Below are video interviews recorded during treatment with Beike stem cells regarding patient experience including the improvements they have noticed following the treatment. The improvements mentioned in these videos are typical in patients with Motor Neuron Diseases, however it does not guarantee that all patients may have improvement.
