Stem Cell therapy

Posted , 4 users are following.

Has anyone tried or knows anyone who has tried Stem Cell therapy? I have read from some places on Internet that they are using it now on Trigeminal neuralgia also. Any thoughts on that?

    Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC)  have been examined in a couple of small studies to assess safety and utility in a selection of Trigeminal associated neuropathic conditions, but not TN as such. It's very early days yet and it's not clear if MSCs would in fact replace damaged fibres at the Trigeminal nerve root in cases of TN. There has been a lot of public interest in stem cell therapy and a lot of the techniques have been tried in humans and animals with not much thought for "why" they're being done. Squirting stem cells into regions of the body where some disease has been localised (or supposed to have been) and then having a look to see if anything has improved is hardly an acceptable procedure in clinical medicine.  

    No matter, there are bound to be no end of studies reported over the next few years doing this sort of thing. The trouble is, there haven't been any follow ups on most of the earlier studies, which makes you think that perhaps this is not the panacea it's deemed to be. 

    We'll all keep watching of course and you can be sure that if any progress is made about TN on the drug side or any other side, we'll soon hear about it, loud and clear. 

    Keep safe
