Stem Cell Treatment for Muscular Dystrophy

Beike’s stem cells have been used to treat patients diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy since 2005. Different types of muscular dystrophy can be considered for treatment, such as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Becker Muscular Dystrophy, Limb Girdle and Fascio-Scapulo Humeral Muscular Dystrophy.

The aim of our treatment is to regenerate the damaged and lost muscle fibers by using stem cell transplantation. To do so, the stem cells are injected intravenously and locally into the affected muscles in order to better target the affected areas.

Improvements

Our stem cell therapy for muscular dystrophy can potentially bring improvements such as Muscle mass and Strength, Movements, Balance, Tremors and Stiffness. The stem cell treatment can slow down the loss of muscle mass and relieve the symptoms.*

However it is important to remember that the treatment is not a cure and it can not eliminate the underlying cause of muscle fiber loss. Thus, improvements are not permanent and will last for a certain period of time depending on how fast the disease is progressing. Upon receiving your medical information our doctors can give you additional guidance regarding your/your relatives particular condition.

*As with any stem cell therapy, improvements may vary from patient to patient and cannot be guaranteed.

Treatment Location

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. Read more about BBH

Injection Methods

The medical team at the center uses a combination of two injection methods for our patients diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy: intravenous and intramuscular injection. More information about each type of injection below:

Intravenous Injection (IV)

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.

Intramuscular Injection

This type of injection brings better improvements for patients diagnosed with muscular dystrophies and allow the stem cells to be directly transplanted into the muscles of the affected area. Upon admission, doctors will examine the patient and decide how many stem cell packets should be injected locally into the affected muscles. This method has also been applied in the treatment of lower limb ischemia and diabetic foot.

Patient Testimonials

Below are video interviews recorded during treatment with Beike stem cells. These patients are talking about their experience including the improvements they have notices following the treatment. The improvements mentioned in these videos are typical in patients with Muscular Dystrophy, however it does not guarantee that all patients may have improvement.
