ALS is one of worst incurable diseases. About 3000 patients in Japan are known to exist without any method for treatment. It is also known many patients are athletes especially soccer players who used their body very hard. The symptom of this disease is the melt down of nerves starting from legs or hands and deteriorated rapidly to other parts of body making unable to eat, drink or speak finally stop breathing and the movement of heart. Theoretically it was said stem cells therapy would be the final solution for this disease.
From the beginning of June this year, facilities for stem cells therapy was complete at Shengavit Medical Center in the capital of Armenia, Yerevan. The doctor who direct this medication is Dr.Hayk Minasyan, MD.,PhD. who is one of the pioneers of this therapy in East Europe. Actually in the final stage of development of technology of application to human beings he made a joint development in USA. So, his clinic in Yerevan is titled as American-Armenian Health Development Center.
One ALS patient from Japan, female 68 years old, tentatively named Mrs M visited Yerevan from July 2 to 14 in order to receive the doctors stem cells therapy. Dr.Minasyan had a confidence of efficacy of his SCs for ALS through the treatment of several ALS patients in Armenia on experimental treatments of this disease.
When Mrs M arrived at Yerevan and received the first medical examination by Dr Minasyan, her condition was near critical, no walking, almost near to stop drinking, eating and speaking. The progress of her ALS was rather speedy type, one year after the start of disease. After taking her blood and putted in
stem cells 63% of them died by the toxin in the blood and only 37% survived.
The survival of 37% was a good news for Dr Minasyan. Because those 37% obtained immunity against her toxins. Then he increased the number of stem cells from 100,000,000 to 150,000,000. Then he started preparation of her body to accept stem cells. Stem cells were injected intravenously considering the safetyfor the patient. One time number of 50,000,000 stem cells were injected and 3 times were finished.
He sent me a mail he believed in the success of treatment because her complexion turned from yellow pale to normal rosy face. She became easy to raise her hand to above head and became easy to drink, eat and speak.
According to her family, her condition is stable and she is very happy to be able to sleep 8 hours. Before treatment she could only sleep 5 hours because of uncomfortable feeling in her back muscles. It was felt being collapsed by ALS. She is looking forward to visit Yerevan for the second treatment in Autumn when the treatment would be more effective Dr Minasyan predict.
