Matthew visited DVC Stem in October 2019 for an infusion of 300 million cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells.

Stem cell therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

Matthew was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2005. MS, typically characterized by damage throughout the brain and spinal cord can be detrimental towards strength, balance, coordination and mobility.

Matthew visited DVC Stem in October 2019 for an infusion of 300 million cord tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells. Prior to treatment DVC Stem recommends that patients follow a certain number of protocols to help prepare the body for the stem cell transfusion. Before treatment DVC Stem recommends; avoiding alcohol, tobacco and caffeine products as well as complete a 5-day juice fast comprised of green vegetables and fruits. This is optional but studies have shown that a fasted state in the body dramatically increases the potency and activation of stem cells, boosting treatment results. Matthew took it one step further and decided to fast for 2 weeks prior to treatment!

Thanks so much for everything! Your facility is truly top not notch! So, it’s already started (the healing). I talked to a friend of mine today for the first time since I got back and he said “your speech seems clearer”.  Also I can now touch the tip of my thumb and pinky together! Have not been able to do that on my left hand in some time!

Stem cell treatment for MS has demonstrated healing and repair-promoting properties. The use of expanded cord tissue-derived umbilical cord cells have made it possible to potentially treat MS more effectively. Mesenchymal stem cells have the ability to combat inflammation within the body. Once administered stem cells will try to repair and replace myelin as damage occurs. This makes MSCs an attractive potential therapy for MS and other conditions characterised by inflammation and/or tissue injury. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) represent an attractive alternative to develop a cell-based therapy for Multiple Sclerosis.

Other potential advantages of stem cell therapy for people with MS include their ability to move from the bloodstream to areas of injured tissues, allowing for a comfortable IV administration of these cells into the body. The stem cells will then be attracted to those areas of injury or inflammation and begin the process of differentiation to begin the healing process. Stem cell transplants for ms are generally less invasive, have shorter recovery times, and lasting healing effects on the body.

How do patients afford this procedure?

It is not uncommon that Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients will be prescribed drugs that can cost upwards of $80,000 - $100,000 a year. Thankfully insurance covers most of that cost, but this is not always the case and patients still end up having to pay out of pocket.

Unfortunately stem cell therapy is not covered by insurance so patients must fund the treatment themselves or with the help of friends and family. DVC Stem tries to bridge this gap by offering a discount to their MS patients thanks to their partnership with the MS Fitness Challenge Charity. Dr. Cona is able to offer the therapy at a greatly reduced price that can make stem cell therapy a viable option for many. To learn more about reduced pricing for MS patients click here.

EXCITING IMPROVEMENTS

Only 3 days after treatment, Matthew is now able to touch his nose with his eyes closed as well as touch his thumb and pinky together. Both of which he was previously unable to do before treatment.

We are excited to see his continued progress. His story will be updated here so keep an eye out!

Matthew experiences sensation in the bottom of his feet after receiving a simple nerve test.

His left foot did not experience any sensation or move at all, but what happened to his right foot is extremely exciting!

50 DAYS POST TREATMENT

Matthew is now able to lift his leg unassisted. He was previously unable to do so.

Matthew is experiencing the benefits of stem cell therapy first hand. You can view his progress video here.

David Lyons

Multiple Sclerosis

Although David Lyons was able to successfully fight Multiple Sclerosis through a strict regimen of diet and exercise, he wanted to ensure he was doing everything he could to stay fit. Multiple Sclerosis can be managed with treatment, but there is currently no cure for the disease. For that reason, David came to DVC Stem years ago to use the regenerative and anti-inflammatory attributes of stem cells to aid in his fight for fitness.

The positive results he experienced enabled David to stay strong in the gym, now into his 60s, and that is why he continues to support our clinic to this day.
