Stem cells have shown great promise when treating Lyme disease. This article dives into the subject in depth.
Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne illness in the Northern Hemisphere. It is caused by the spread of the bacteria Borrelia through the bite of ticks. If caught early and treated with antibiotics, patients have a good chance of recovery. However, later stage cases can have more severe symptoms, and even cured patients can suffer from post-treatment lyme disease syndrome (PTLDS). Symptoms include fatigue, chronic pain, joint pain, and nervous system issues.
Cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells are harvested from donated umbilical cords. Specifically, DVC Stem uses American Association of Tissue Bank (AATB) certified suppliers of full term umbilical cord tissue. These cells are essentially "new" and "unclaimed", making them extremely potent, free from immune rejection, and easily sourced without the need for tissue extraction from the patient. Additionally, they are free from the effects of disease and aging that affect bone or fat derived stem cells.Cord tissue-derived MSCs have been used to treat a wide range of autoimmune and degenerative diseases. When applied systemically through IV deployment, they have the ability to travel the body, seeking out inflammation and damaged tissue for repair. Stem cells have a strong anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effect. This makes them prime candidates for the treatment of Lyme and PTLDS symptoms.
Patients can expect a reduction in inflammation-related symptoms, reduction in pain, regulation of the immune system, and assistance in eliminating the Borrelia bacteria. Additionally, the effects of treatment last for lengthy periods of time, even halting the progression of symptoms.
DVC Stem is a stem cell therapy pioneer, offering stem cell therapies for years and has become a cornerstone of the medical tourism industry. Located in the tropical paradise of Grand Cayman in the Western Caribbean, we offer patients a nearby alternative to traveling long distances and to less ideal locations. Our protocols are IRB approved, and our cells come from regulated, U.S. based, FDA compliant laboratories. We seek to offer the highest quality products, the latest available treatments for a variety of conditions, all combined with a world-class setting and service.
