HISTORY

Jurica was a young patient from Serbia. She was admitted to Puhua International Hospital (PIH) for stem cell treatment for Batten disease. She had a history of “paroxysmal jerks of limbs for two and a half years, unsteady walking for two years, and was unable to see for five months,” with a diagnosis of Batten disease.

Patient Jurica began to suffer from paroxysmal limb spasms three years before admission. Within 6 months time, Patient Jurica seemed to be in poor mental condition. She did not like to talk, or often said wrong things. When she was 4 years old, she cried frequently and seemed to be irritable. Patient Jurica’s mother tried many treatments for her, but her condition did not get improve. She was had lost the ability to see clearly by five months prior to her arrival at our PIH. Her diagnosis of Batten disease (type 2) was confirmed by that time, via genetic testing.

Medical condition before Stem Cell Treatment for Batten disease

Before stem cell treatment, Jurica’s spasms lasted for several minutes duration. She had also slow involuntary movements of both hands. When she moved, tremor was observed.

She was able to pronounce just a few simple words like “Mom,” and “Ah,” and her pronunciation was poor. She was unable to see well. When examined at admission, her pupillary response to light was slow.

She was unable to walk or stand independently. She could not maintain herself in a sitting position.

Stem Cell Treatment for Batten disease

Injections of neural stem cells, self stem cell activation and proliferation therapy, and rehabilitation therapy (Physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy)

Medical condition after Stem Cell Treatment for Batten disease

After stem cell treatment for Batten disease, Patient Jurica’s condition improved gradually.

Soon, there was more facial expression. She was not as irritable as before treatment. She was able to laugh when she felt happy, and she began to kiss people that she cared for.

She began to be able to say some simple words. She began to be able to maintain a sitting position, and she began to walk for a short distance with assistance.

Her sleeping improved and she began to control her tongue better than before. She began to drool less, and grip things with better strength and motor control.
