HISTORY

Patient Ahemd, a 65-year-old male from Libya, was admitted to Beijing Puhua International Hospital due to a ten-year history of “involuntary tremors and bradykinesia." The patients condition had worsened over the two years preceding admission.

 

Medical Condition before Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for Parkinson’s Disease

Before the stem cell treatment (SCT), the patient’s speech was slurred, with low voice and a mask-like facial expression. Muscular tension was high in his four limbs, especially in his right arm. Deep-tendon reflexes were present in all four limbs. It was difficult for him to lift his upper limbs or rotate his right forearm due to the increased muscle tone. Bilateral finger-to-finger and finger-to-nose tests were inaccurate and unstable. The alternate motion exams of both hands, and finger movements, were clumsy. Bilateral finger-to-finger and finger-to-nose tests were lacking in accuracy and stability, as was the heel-knee-tibia test, which was worse in his right leg. The patient was prone to leaning forward while walking.
 

 

Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for Parkinson’s Disease

The patient was given stem cell implantation via lumbar puncture and IV infusions; activation of neural cells via a daily supply of neurotrophic factors, daily rehabilitation and occupational therapy sessions and daily traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) treatments. 

 

Medical Condition after Stem Cell Treatment (SCT) for Parkinson’s Disease

After the stem cell treatment, the patient’s vital signs are stable and he began to be able to speak a little faster than before. The rigidity began to improve in the neck, back and trunk. More flexibility was seen when patient rotated his body. The patient can also walk faster than before treatment. The alternate motion tests of his both hands was been improved from the time of admission. Excess muscular tension was decreased in the limbs and trunk. More flexibility was noted in the alternate motion in his limbs.
Patient Ahmed was very satisfied with these initial improvements after the SCT treatment, and Beijing Puhua International Hospital will continue to monitor his follow-ups.
