Innovative Approach to MND Using Your Own Stem Cell With AMPC Treatment

Motor Neuron Disease (MND) is characterised as the loss of voluntary muscle movement control due to progressive degeneration of the motor neurons. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, people may lose the ability to speak, eat, move and breathe.

At ASC Treatment (ASC) we understand the devastating problem caused by MND and are dedicated in providing MND patients a better quality of life. ASC has had years of experience employing innovative techniques in treatment of MND. The focus on regenerative medicine in treating the disease sets ASC apart from conventional medical practices. At ASC, a professional medical team trained in the knowledge and understanding of MND and stem cell treatments will provide care to those who enlist our services. Those under the care of our certified medical doctors will be receive the best standard of care as is the standard of ASC.

Quality & Safety Assurance

ASC prides itself in prioritising the Safety and Efficacy of all product lines used in our treatments. The stem cells we employ in regenerative medicine treatments are no exception. Your own Autologous Multi-lineage Potential Cells (AMPC) will be used in our stem cell treatments as they have demonstrated, through their excellent safety track record, exceptional safety profiles and remarkable efficacy. All manufactured stem cell products are also quality assured with multiple safety standards in place:

Therapeutic Goods Administration Compliant – All manufacturing and use of the AMPC product is compliant with regulations by the Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia where the products are primarily produced.

Lloyds Insurance – All instances of your AMPC’s production and administration is insured for product quality, possible adverse effect and malpractice of medical team.

External Laboratory Sterility Testing – Each and every AMPC products must be screened by a third-party testing laboratory, and the product will only be released for administration after the sterility test has been cleared.

Why AMPC

High Cell Count

Every production generates between 200 ~ 500 million stem cell which is 5x to 10x greater than any competitor products, meaning more repairs and regeneration.

Autologous

Your AMPC products are cultured from your own blood. This provides assurance that the cells are 100% compatible with the patient’s body and are therefore able to recognise all the inflammation signals produced by the body to carry out the necessary repair and regeneration. This will also eliminate the risk of possible rejection.

Multi-Lineage Differentiation Capability

AMPC are superior to existing stem cells being used as they can differentiate into more than one type of cell. AMPC have demonstrated the ability to differentiate into endothelial and neurological cells. This indicates that they are effective in dealing with MND which is the result of progressive neuronal loss.

Our Treatment Strategy

Recent research efforts have been poured into regenerative medicine, and the use of stem cells to slow the progression and in hope of reversing MND. University of South Florida (USF Health) has identify the key development of MND patient is deterioration of the blood-spinal cord barrier and degeneration of motor neurons. Based on the above research and our product characteristic, we are able to formulate a treatment strategy to slow the progression of MND.

MND

AMPC

Damages to the blood-spinal cord barrier

  • AMPC also shown high differentiation capability towards endothelial cells which is the primary cells which makes up the blood-spinal cord barrier.
  • AMPC CD markers for endothelial cell CD31 (93.69%), CD54(54.2%), CD144(7.83%)

Degeneration of motor neurons

  • Ability to repair and differentiate into neurological cells
  • Your AMPC contains high levels of neurotrophic factors (NTFs) which are potent survival factors for neurons :
    • BDNF: Brain-derived neurotrophic factor
    • NT-3: Neurotophin-3
    • CNTF: Ciliary neurotrophic factor
    • GDNF: Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor
    • EGF: Endothelial growth factor

Our Treatment Strategy

Recent research efforts have been poured into regenerative medicine, and the use of stem cells to slow the progression and in hope of reversing ALS. University of South Florida (USF Health) has identify the key development of ALS patient is deterioration of the blood-spinal cord barrier and degeneration of motor neurons. Based on the above research and our product characteristic, we are able to formulate a treatment strategy to slow the progression of ALS.
