Nirma – SMA III Stem Cell Patient

Nirma traveled from Indonesia to China to receive transplants of umbilical cord blood stem cells–a form of adult stem cells–to treat symptoms associated with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type III.

SMA III is caused by a rare genetic mutation. While the treatment she received is not a cure for SMA III it can offer progressive quality of life improvements for a patient.
