Stem Cell Treatment for Muscular Dystrophy

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

What Makes our Treatment for Muscular Dystrophy Effective?

Since 2005, we have been developing comprehensive stem cell treatment protocols for Muscular Dystrophy to overcome the limitations of conventional therapies. In our protocols, stem cells are combined with specialized therapies for muscular dystrophy 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 affected muscles. We believe that our comprehensive treatment approach for muscular dystrophy gives our patients the best chances of improvements, allowing for a better quality of life. Different types of muscular dystrophy can be considered for treatment, such as Duchenne, Becker, Limb Girdle, Fascio-Scapulo Humeral and more.

What potential improvements after the treatment?

The purpose of the treatment is to promote the healing and growth of the affected muscles. Thus, various kinds of improvement are possible after our treatment and our past patients have experienced the following*:

  • Enlarged muscle mass
  • Increased muscle strength
  • Improved balance
  • Decreased stiffness
  • Improved range of movement
  • Decreased tremor occurrence
  • Improved development (in children)

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 technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body - most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. It is one of the most effective practices used in traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture stimulates nerve fibers to transmit signals to the spinal cord and brain, activating the body’s central nervous system. The spinal cord and brain then release hormones responsible for making us feel less pain while improving overall health. Acupuncture may also: increase blood circulation and body temperature, affect white blood cell activity (responsible for our immune function), reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and regulate blood sugar levels.
  • 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.
  • Epidural Stimulation

    Epidural stimulation has helped previous patients to regain some voluntary motor function. The technology consists of a device implanted in the epidural space which continuously delivers electric signals to the spinal cord. These electric signals mimic the ones that are delivered by the brain to voluntarily control the body’s movements. The epidural stimulation device is provided by Medtronic.

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen at a level higher than atmospheric pressure. The equipment required consists of pressure chamber, which may be of rigid or flexible construction, and a means of delivering 100% oxygen into the respiratory system. Published research shows that HBOT increases the lifespan of stem cells after injection and provides an oxygen-rich atmosphere for the body to function at optimum levels.
  • Nerve Growth Factor (NGF)

    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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation

    Research has shown that TMS can effectively treat symptoms of depression, anxiety, neurological pain, stroke, spinal cord injuries, autism and more. This procedure is very simple and noninvasive. During the procedure, a magnetic field generator or “coil” is placed near the head of the person receiving the treatment. The coil produces small electrical currents in the region of the brain just under the coil via electromagnetic induction. This electrical field causes a change in the transmembrane current of the neuron which leads to depolarization or hyperpolarization of the neuron and the firing of an action potential.

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. This allows rapid absorption and precise control over the dosage of the substance administered, which is vital for a variety of medical procedures. As stem cells can be taken by the circulatory system to every part of the body, they will migrate to the site of injury or disease.

An intramuscular (IM) injection is a shot of medicine given into a muscle. Intramuscular injections of stem cells can assist patients with muscular dystrophy to receive better health gains. These injections are made directly into the muscles of the affected areas. Upon admission, the doctors will examine the patient and decide how many stem cell packets should be injected locally into the affected muscles. The delivery method has also been applied to treat lower limb ischemia and diabetic foot.
