Tay-Sachs Children Respond to Ground-Breaking Stem Cell Gene Therapy

Tay-Sachs Children Respond to Ground-Breaking Stem Cell Gene Therapy

As a result of Dr. Feinerman’s continued ground-breaking efforts to treat Tay-Sachs disease through stem cell gene therapy, the treatment of three children suffering from this devastating genetic disorder have recovered. Children with Tay-Sachs appear to develop normally after birth, but symptoms begin to affect them around 6 months of age. They lose the ability to turn over, raise their heads, sit or crawl. They make little or no movement and may have trouble even swallowing. Many have frequent seizures and lose the ability to hear or see. The disease usually results in death by age four.

Until now there has been no curative treatment for children suffering from Tay-Sachs. The gene therapy treatment provided by StemCellGeneticMed, however, will offer thousands of families a chance to help their children who suffer from this catastrophic disease.

Burton Feinerman, M.D., who trained at the Mayo Clinic and now practices in Sarasota, Florida, studied the natural pathology of Tay-Sachs, which is caused by a genetic mutation on the HEXA gene and affects production of the enzyme beta-hexosaminidase A. This enzyme assists in breaking down fat deposits in brain cells. When deficient, an abnormal accumulation of these fat deposits will occur in the brain and spinal cord.
Dr. Feinerman first developed methods to increase enzyme activity, empty substrates that formed in cells, and correct non-functioning misfolded proteins.

Dr. Feinerman teamed up with longtime colleague, Javier Paino, M.D., Ph.D., a neurosurgeon and scientist who trained at Mt. Sinai Hospital Medical School in NY and George Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. Feinerman and Dr. Paino administered treatment to Aspen Brown, a 14-month-old child from Alabama suffering from Tay-Sachs. Aspen was the first child to receive the treatment. Within days of the treatment she exhibited improvement in muscle tone, the ability to move her head and neck, follow movement, and grasp objects.

Dr. Feinerman and Dr. Paino took their research one step further by inserting the HEXA gene into neuron stem cells without using a viral vector. The neuron stem cells with the HEXA gene were administered into the central nervous system and brain. The gene treatment was provided to three children at the Concebir Clinic in Lima, Peru. Although Dr. Feinerman and Dr. Paino were not expecting any miracles from the treatment, they were greeted by the overjoyed parents of the children at the hospital just two days later. The children were making sounds, showing active facial expressions, moving their arms and legs, following moving objects, making head and neck movements, showing increased muscle tone, swallowing more and exhibiting a decrease in drooling. Two of the children had been suffering from multiple seizures a day, but those seizures stopped shortly after the treatment.

All You Need To Know On Stem Cell Therapy


How Does Stem Cell Therapy Or Regenerative Medicine Work?

Essentially, stem cell therapy is the next level of modern medicine. Stem cell therapy is the process of your own stem cells going through a degree of programming to make them specialize into specific cells. These specialized cells are then injected back into your body. The implanted cells then hone into the damaged parts of your body and start the repair process.

There is no rejection since the stem cells come from the body of the patient.  The stem cells are extracted from the areas containing stored fat (adipose tissue) or the bone marrow. A ‘centrifuge’ harbors the extracted cells and then spins the extracted cells at a very fast pace. This process proceeds to make the contents in the centrifuge to become ultra concentrated.  The stem cell concentration then enters the affected body system via injection. The cells then work immediately after entering the system and start to perform their function.


Stem cell therapy is having tremendous success in the following medical cases:


Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy

  • This form of therapy is good for patients experiencing severe pain or are facing a life threatening condition. This is because it does not entail expensive reconstructive surgery or medications. It is applicable on joint pains of the knee, shoulder, elbows, and tendon to neurological and autoimmune diseases.
  • It is a simple way of treating and reversing debilitating conditions in the body due to its mode of introduction to the body. The stem cells are programmed to hone into the specific areas that need repair. 
  • It increases collagen in the body. The application of the treatment entails injection of the stem cells with other substances. Some medical practitioners, campaign for anesthetic substances and collagen being one of the substances introduced into the body.
  • It helps patients return to their normal healthy states as fast as possible. This is because they continue reproducing even after periods of remaining inactive.
  • It aids in reducing the damage to the nerves and compensation of muscles, which in turn increases the probability of impending injuries.
  • Prevents the formation of scars on the skin and reduces the possibility of hair loss. Some stem cells to aid in the regeneration of hair cells.
  • It helps to repair blood vessels and tissue in the body.
  • Spine injuries and trauma to the brain are now treatable. In addition to this, neurodegenerative diseases and conditions are also treatable.
  • This therapy is also beneficial to the improvement and treatment of impaired vision.

Precautions of Stem Cell Therapy

  • Headaches preceding the therapeutic injection
  • Redness or and swelling in the area of injection one to two days preceding the therapy
  • There might be an increase in stiffness and pain in the affected area. This, however, happens for a short period.

Overall, stem cell therapy is the future of medicine and Stem Cell Genetic Med makes that future a possibility today.  Other treatments  from other clinics see little no to success due to the lack of patent stem cell protocols created by our lead physician Dr. Burton Feinerman .

We at Stem Cell Genetic Med have developed an advanced way of dealing with terminal illnesses. Has your physician told you that there is no hopeful treatment option? We challenge the incurable with cutting edge therapy treatment options that cover a wide range of diseases. Our stem cell and gene therapies aid to reverse even the most debilitating conditions from various diseases.  Contact us today for more information on our treatment methods, via our social media accounts, site (https://www.stemcellgeneticmed.com ), or Call us (561-557-3358)
