The patient was first admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital due to delayed development in speech, cognition and mobility after birth in early 2013. His results were excellent.

After 6 months, on September 6th 2013, Patient Saveliy came back to this hospital for further stem cell treatment. In May 2017, he came back for the third time treatment.
 

Medical condition before Stem Cell Treatment

At admission Patient Saveliy was alert, but slow reacting to the outside world, and poor in terms of cooperation. His pupils were equal and round, 3.0mm in diameter, with sluggish response to light. Eye movements were over-active. He had poor visual tracking and had had better response to aural stimuli and voices, esp. his mother’s voice.

On admission, the patient could raise his head for only a few minutes. He could sit by himself with crossed legs for only a short time, and had poor ability to support his trunk. Few autonomous activities were noted in his arms. He might to try to grasp things with his right hand, but his movements were too clumsy to succeed. He tended to put his hands on his eyes. Extension and flexion were noted with the lower limbs, but he generally kept them in flexed position. He was able to raise his limbs from the bed, but unable to crawl. The patient was uncooperative with the muscle strength examinations. Muscle tone was low in all four limbs. Tendon reflexes were basically normal. Abdominal reflexes were absent. Pathological neurological signs were not elicited. Bilateral plantar reflexes were present. The patient had response to the painful stimulation, but he could not cooperate with the tests of coordinate movement.

 

Stem Cell Therapy for Twenty-eight days

After admission, several medical protocols were applied, including Stem Cell Therapy, medical improvement of cerebral circulation and nutrition, combined with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and rehabilitation training.

After the second round of stem cell therapy the child’s overall condition was good and he had quicker responses to the outside with more facial expressions compared with his admission. He was more cooperative with examinations. He could say “mom” clearly. Strength in his neck and trunk has been increased and he began to raise his head and sit by himself longer. He had more self-actuated movements in arms and his both hands were better able to grasp objects. His lower limbs could be kept on the bed straightly and naturally.
