Autism is a growing problem in modern children. It is important to understand the behavioral disorder and to work to treat it with great care.
Is it difficult for your child to chat, play, hang out, or socialize with others? If so, your child may be born with a variety of developmental disorders called autism. The treatment of autism is a major concern. An important breakthrough is the use of stem cell therapy for complete treatment. Before it was picked up in the movies, the awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) was almost zero. Autism is a common developmental disorder in which some children are born or even develop in their early years. When talking about treatment, stem cell therapy is based on the ability of stem cells to affect their metabolism, immune system, communication skills, learning ability, memory, thinking ability, and repair of damaged cells and tissues. Vipul Jain, CEO of Advancells, says: "The main goals in treating children with autism are reducing their associated deficits. However, every treatment is tailored to the needs of the child.
Signs and Symptoms
Dr. Ratan Kumar Vaish, Internal Medicine, Rockland Hospital, names two major categories of symptoms:
Social Situation Presence and Communication Limitations: Autism in children may involve limitations in understanding others' emotions and emotions , There may even be delays in language development. Further, then, inability to talk and participate in conversations, including others.
Repetitive Patterns of Thinking and Behavior: This action may involve repetitive physical movements such as the tapping of hands, twisting, or mere agitation, when repeated movements are disturbed.
Stem cells can renew themselves and are considered the best regenerative medicine. Jain adds, "Stem cells occur in adult tissues such as bone marrow and even in embryos. Your main job in the body is to care for and repair tissues. Important areas in which stem cell therapy can lead to effective treatment are neurological diseases, orthopedics, COPD, lung diseases, liver diseases, cardiology, autoimmune diseases, eye diseases, infertility and cosmetic procedures.

At the right time
The patient's diagnosis is based on his medical history. The stem cell is then extracted and processed in the laboratory before being re-implanted into the patient's body. Treatment may be 2 or 3 sessions, depending on the outcome. Vipul says, "The response to this therapy will vary from case to case. Usually, children show improvements from the first session. The child may take three to four therapy sessions over a five-year period.
Popularity in India
Several other applications of stem cells are being investigated in clinical trials, including the use of stem cells to regenerate damaged tissue – such as heart, skin, bone, spinal cord, liver, pancreas, and cornea – or for the treatment of blood or organ cancer. Most of these studies use mesenchymal stem cells derived from sources such as adipose tissue, bone marrow, and connective tissue. Bone marrow transplants are successful in cases where the cells do what they are intended for, producing more blood. In other circumstances, we want the cells to behave differently than they normally work in the body.
