Stem Cell Research and Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy describes a group of permanent disorders of the development of movement and posture, causing activity limitation, that are attributed to nonprogressive disturbances that occurred in the developing fetal or infant brain. The motor disorders of cerebral palsy are often accompanied by disturbances of sensation, perception, cognition, communication, and behaviour, by epilepsy, and by secondary musculoskeletal problems.

In March of last year, a toddler diagnosed with cerebral palsy showed incredible improvement after an infusion of his own stem cells. This was made possible by the collection and storage of his own cord blood shortly before birth.

“[Dallas’ doctors] said by the age of 7, there may be no signs of cerebral palsy at all,” Hextell told TODAY co-host Meredith Vieira, “So he’s on his way, as far as we’re concerned.”

Since the U.S. has more stringent regulations on unproven medical treatments, a commercial solution is not yet available. Hopefully, eventual changes to the strict regulations on stem cell research will occur – opening up literally thousands of treatment possibilities for people suffering countless diseases.
