I need help for new life
Organized by: Ahmad Youssef
My name is Ahmad youssef age 27 years since I was born suffering from nerve disease, I have had several surgeries to my feet, but did not succeed in a national Lebanon, after research found treatment in America, which is very expensive and my family can not pay this amount, the name of this therapy stem cells, I hope to help. ABOUT MD, THE TRADITIONAL TREATMENTS, AND HOW STEM CELL THERAPY CAN HELP Muscular Dystrophies are a group of hereditary, neuromuscular disorders which involve Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy (BMD), Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD), Fascio-scapulo-humeral Dystrophy (FSHD) and Dystonic Dystrophy as few of the most common types. Muscular dystrophy results in progressive muscle wasting which significantly affects motor function and balance and coordination. Many of such patients suffer from secondary complications including cardiomyopathy and respiratory failure. The currently available treatment options include corticosteroids and mild-to-moderate physiotherapy but the treatment outcomes remain very mild. Gene therapy and stem cell treatment are two of the most promising alternative treatment options for muscular dystrophy patients. While gene therapy is in its very initial research level, extensive focus has been on utilising stem cells to halt the disease progression, and to increase muscle mass and improve motor function.
