Stem cell research and MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY

Muscular dystrophy is an umbrella term used to characterize a number of disorders related to progressive muscle mass loss and strength loss. It can happen as early as infancy, or up to middle age or even later. Stem Cell Centers treatments may help with symptoms associated with muscular dystrophy.

Cause of Muscular Dystrophy:

Muscular dystrophy is caused by certain genetic defects and abnormalities. All forms of it are inherited through an abnormal gene that does not produce enough/faulty dystrophin (a protein that helps muscle cells keep their normal shape and function). This gene is located on the X chromosome (women are less likely to have it because they have two X chromosomes, as opposed to men who only have one). A woman who has this abnormal gene can also be a “carrier” of it (being able to pass it down to her children) without having the condition herself.

The face, arm, leg, spine or heart muscles are all vulnerable to muscular dystrophy. Because of muscle mass loss and weakness, these muscles face many physical limitations or lose ability to function altogether. This may also lead to shortened life span. 

How Can Stem Cell Therapy Help?

Muscular Dystrophy Symptoms:

The most common symptoms of muscular dystrophy are:
  • Muscle weakness
  • Joint stiffness
  • Difficulty walking
  • Enlarged calves
  • Issues developing motor skills
  • Fatigue

Muscular Dystrophy Risks:

There are no environmental factors that can increase your risk of developing muscular dystrophy. All forms of muscular dystrophy are caused by genetic mutations, so those with certain genetic factors are at the highest risk.
