Stem Cell Treatment for Optic Neuropathy

A combination of stem cells and extensive therapies giving the patient
real chances of improvement

What Makes our Treatment for Optic Neuropathy Effective?

Since 2005, we have been developing comprehensive stem cell treatment protocols for optic neuropathy to overcome the limitations of conventional therapies. In our protocols, stem cells are combined with specialized therapies that not only focus on helping the patient to cope with their symptoms, but also treat the direct cause of the symptoms by promoting the healing of the optic nerve. We believe that our comprehensive treatment approach for optic neuropathy gives our patients the best chances of improvements, allowing for a better quality of life. Medical conditions such as optic nerve atrophies (ONA), optic nerve hypoplasia & septo-optic dysplasia (ONH/SOD), Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON), glaucoma and more can be be considered for stem cell treatment.

What potential improvements after the treatment?

The purpose of the treatment is to heal the original injury to the optic nerve and/or the retina in order to restore visual function. Thus, various kinds of visual improvements are possible after our treatment and our past patients have experienced the following*:

  • Sharpened visual acuity
  • Increased light perception
  • Enlarged visual field
  • Improved color vision
  • Decreased nystagmus
  • Reduced disease progression (for progressive conditions)

Kevin and Janice’s Stem Cell Journey – VIDEO

Kevin and Janice's Stem Cell Journey

Janice has suffered from visual impairment all her life, but her glaucoma diagnosis and worsening condition coupled with a lack of treatment options was heartbreaking. That all changed when Janice and her husband saw Kevin Naidoo's story on local television talking about his upcoming trip for stem cell treatment.

Stem Cell+ Therapies

Beike treatment protocol: Stem Cell Treatment+

Beike is unlike any other stem cell treatment provider in the world, the reason? Since 2005, we have been developing and optimizing our stem cell treatment protocols with the concept that stimulation through various therapies is necessary to enhance stem cell regenerative response. Our approach allows our patient to maximize their improvements. Select any of our therapies to find out more and watch our videos to get the live experience.

  • Acupuncture

    Acupuncture is a therapy in which thin needles are used to penetrate the skin at various depths in order to stimulate specific locations in the body. The insertion sites are called ‘acupuncture points’ and allow to simultaneously stimulate muscles, nerves and connective tissues. There are over 350 acupuncture points positioned on 12 meridians (pathways) throughout the body. Stimulation of these points activates the body’s natural painkillers as well as increasing blood flow. This is highly beneficial for stem cell patients as it increases movement of natural immune cells, anti-inflammatory cells and key nutrients, thereby accelerating recovery.

  • Aquatherapy

    Aquatic Physical Therapy is the practice of physical therapy in a specifically designed water pool with a therapist. The unique properties of the aquatic environment enhance interventions for patients with neurological or musculoskeletal conditions. Aquatic therapy includes a wide range of techniques allowing patients to improve their balance, muscle strength and body mechanics. Aquatic therapy works to enhance the rehabilitation process and support effectiveness of stem cell treatment.

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

    All body's tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function properly. When tissues are injured, they require even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen the blood can carry, allowing to restore normal levels of blood gases which in turns promote general tissue function. Optimal blood oxygen levels also then support the development of stem cells as well as survival of the newly generated cells.

  • Nutrition Therapy

    Medical nutritiontherapy (MNT) is a therapeutic approach to treat medical conditions and their associated symptoms via the use of a specifically tailored diet devised and monitored by a specialist. The therapy aims at fixing nutritional deficiencies and physiological imbalances in order to provide the best environment possible for the stem cells to develop properly as well as improving patient’s general health.

  • Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

    During a TMS session, an electromagnetic coil is placed against your scalp. The electromagnet painlessly delivers a magnetic pulse that stimulates nerve cells in the region of your brain involved in the patient’s medical condition, supporting recovery of the relating functions.

  • Occupational Therapy

    Occupational therapy interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task and teaching the skill, in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities, particularly those that are meaningful to the patient with physical, mental, or cognitive disorders. Our Occupational Therapists also focus much of their work on identifying and eliminating environmental barriers to independence and participation in daily activities, similar to everyday life.

  • Physiotherapy

    Physical therapy or physiotherapy (often abbreviated to PT) is a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialty that, by using mechanical force and movements, remediates impairments and promotes mobility, function, and quality of life through examination, diagnosis, prognosis, and physical intervention. We combine our PT with stem cells for maximum physical rehabilitation improvements.

  • Nerve Growth Factor (NGF)

    The Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a member of the neurotrophic factor (neurotrophin, NTFS) family, which can prevent the death of nerve cells and has many features of typical neurotransmitter molecules. NGF plays an important role in the development and growth of nerve cells. NGF is synthesized and secreted by tissues (corneal epithelial, endothelial, and corneal stromal cells), and it can be up-taken by sympathetic or sensory nerve endings and then transported to be stored in neuronal cell bodies where it can promote the growth and differentiation of nerve cells.

    NGF can exert neurotrophic effects on injured nerves and promote neurogenesis (the process of generating neurons from stem cells) that is closely related to the development and functional maintenance and repair of the central nervous system. It is also capable of promoting the regeneration of injured neurons in the peripheral nervous system, improving the pathology of neurons and protecting the nerves against hypoxia (lack of oxygen)/ischemia (lack of blood supply).

About our Stem Cells

About our Stem Cells

Different types of stem cells for different needs

Beike provides stem cells from two separate sources: umbilical cord blood and umbilical cord tissue. Umbilical cord related samples are donated by healthy mothers after normal birth and are sent to Beike Biotech's laboratories for processing.

After reviewing the patient’s full medical information, our doctors will recommend which source of stem cells should be used for treatment. Our treatment protocols may include one or multiple types of stem cell in combination depending on each patient's specific condition.

Delivery methods

The intravenous injection (IV) can be defined as the infusion of liquid substances directly into a vein. IVs allow healthcare professionals to administer fluids, blood products, and medications directly into a patient’s bloodstream via a small tube.

The Intrathecal Administration consist of an injection made into the spinal canal in order to access the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and by extension, the central nervous system. This type of administration allows to deliver the stem cells to the brain and spinal cord in an easier and more effective way. 

more

Retrobulbar injections (RB) are usually used worldwide to provide local anesthesia in the retrobulbar area (behind the eye). During Beike Biotech stem cell treatment protocol, this type of injection is utilized to deliver stem cells as close as possible from the optic nerve and/or retina in order to better target the site of injury.
