Parkinson's Treatments Could Lead to Serious Side Effects

A recent research project by the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has revealed potential for a new stem cell treatment for individuals living with Parkinson's disease. The study showed a new set of cell surface markers on the progenitor cells of the brain that create dopamine, which allows researchers to more effectively target cells to produce induced neurons for cell-replacement therapy.

What Is the Impact of This Discovery?

This discovery may mean new treatment for those living with Parkinson's disease. Parkinson's affects neurons in the brain, and cell-replacement therapy has shown promise in treating the condition by replacing dying neurons. The study could help researchers isolate the kind of cells needed to optimize cell-replacement therapy, which is still in the trial phase and not being widely used in patients.

Current treatment options often include a regimen of drug therapy; some of these medications have severe and uncomfortable side effects. Innovations Stem Cell Center offers patients living with Parkinson's some relief from their condition and hard-to-handle side effects with fat stem cell therapy.

What Is Parkinson's Disease?

Parkinson's disease is a degenerative brain condition that affects about 10 million Americans. It is caused by the breakdown of dopamine-producing neurons. Although the symptoms of Parkinson's disease vary among individuals, patients often experience tremors, problems with balance and gait, and rigid limbs. Many sufferers of Parkinson's disease also experience bradykinesia, or the slowing of movements.

Treatments for Parkinson's Disease

Drug therapy is the primary way that doctors manage the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. While these medications can help control the symptoms and slow the progression of the disease, many patients experience the onset of side effects including diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, lightheadedness and low blood pressure, confusion, fatigue, involuntary movements, changes in behaviors, and difficulty urinating.

As a result, not all individuals can tolerate these conventional treatments. This is where fat stem cell therapy from Innovations Stem Cell Center can help. Fat stem cells may be able to differentiate into new, healthy, dopamine-creating neurons - the same cells that are damaged by the disease. Fat stem cell therapy may also reduce inflammation caused the condition. Many patients experience improvements in their condition and a reduction in Parkinson's-related symptoms.
