Advanced Stem Cell Therapy for Leukemia in Mexico


The life-saving Stem Cell Treatment in Mexico is being provided at a 70% lower cost than in your home country. The same transplant could cost you thousands of dollars at home. This is why this treatment option has gained much popularity in recent times.

After a long period of clinical trials and controversies, Stem Cell Transplant is now being performed on individuals suffering from degenerative diseases. The success of these therapies can be observed in the fact that people will terminal illnesses are living better lives now.

Statistics

According to statistics from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, one person is diagnosed with blood cancer every 3 minutes in the United States (US).

Here are a few more startling statistics to give you an idea about the seriousness of the problem:

  • An estimated 1,345,123 people in the US are either living with, or are in remissionfrom, leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma.
  • One person dies of blood cancer every 9 minutes in the USA. This adds up to approximately 160 people each day or more than 6 people every hour.

What is Leukemia?

Leukemia is a Cancer of the blood or bone marrow. The basic defect lies in the production of blood cells. Blood cells are formed in the bone marrow. Usually, the cells affected in particular are the White Blood Cells (WBCs).

In Leukemia, WBCs overgrow and divide at a higher frequency. Their life span also becomes longer than usual. These cells will not be able to perform their functions properly. Thus, the body’s immunity will be compromised.

Forms of Leukemia

Leukemia can be classified in two ways:

  1. On the basis of type of cell affected:
  • Lymphoid
  • Myeloid
  1. On the basis of speed of onset:
  • Acute: The onset of the disease is rapid.
  • Chronic: the onset is very slow.

So, combining these two, we get four distinct types:

  1. Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)
  2. Acute Lymphoid Leukemia (ALL)
  3. Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML)
  4. Chronic Lymphoid Leukemia (CLL)

Some other forms of the disease have been observed, including the following:

  • Hairy Cell Leukemia
  • Myelodysplastic Leukemia
  • Myeloproliferative Leukemia

Symptoms

Pain in the bones and joints Red spots on the body (petechiae)
Swollen Lymph Nodes Fever and anemia
Fatigue Bleeding, bruising
Frequent Infections Loss of appetite
Weight loss Enlargement of Liver and Spleen


Why Stem Cells?

Stem Cells are a blessing in disguise for the patients who are suffering from life-altering disorders like Leukemia.

Following high-dose chemotherapy, stem cells are infused into the patient’s body. Chemotherapy will get rid of the cancerous cells. The stem cells will promote the formation of new, healthy blood cells.

What causes Leukemia?

The exact cause of Leukemia is unknown. However, several factors have been linked with the disease. Some of these are:

  • DNA mutation
  • Tobacco consumption
  • Family history
  • Ionizing radiation
  • Identical twins

If one of two identical twins has leukemia, there is a 20% chance that the other will have it within a year.

Known Complications of Stem Cell Therapy

There are two main complications which need to be avoided after stem cell treatment:

  1. Infections: The time period of recovery is when the patient is highly prone to infections. Care should be taken to limit human contact. An antibiotic regimen is also given in such cases.
  2. Graft versus Host Disease (GvHD): This occurs when there is a mis-match between the cells of the donor and the recipient. The most common symptoms are rashes and fever. This condition can be life-threatening and should be taken very seriously.

How can I reduce my risk of getting Leukemia?

  1. Quit smoking
  2. Avoid high-risk chemicals like Benzene
  3. Healthy diet, which will further make a strong immune system
  4. Protection from radiation

Procedure

  1. Consultation:

This step involves examination of the patient’s condition by the concerned doctor. Various tests are done and past medical records are also taken into account. The patient can discuss the procedure with the doctor at length.

  1. Treatment Plan: A treatment plan is decided upon and all aspects of the plan are discussed with the patient.
  2. Pre-op Preparation: The pre-op prep includes full physical examination and testing. The patient’s vital signs are kept under constant check to avoid any complications.
  3. Transplantation:
  • Extraction of Fat: Fat tissue is extracted from the donor site. This will serve as the source for stem cells.
  • Separation and Cultivation of Stem Cells: Stem cells are separated from the fat tissue using special machinery.
  • Reverse Aging process and Function assignment: The isolated stem cells are then made ‘blank’. The result is Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (IPSCs). These can now be converted to any other cell of the body.
  • Infusion of stem cells into recipient’s body: The final stem cells are infused into the patient’s body. These will then reach the target organ and perform the specified function.

5 things to know about Leukemia

  1. Surgery has very little role in the treatment of leukemia. It is a blood cancer which can not be excised by surgery.
  2. Leukemia is the most common cancer in the under 20 age group. In the elderly, people above 60 years of age are the most commonly affected.
  3. There may be late effects of leukemia. Among others, there maybe heart, liver and lung troubles. Patients have also reported some problems in the bones and muscles.
  4. Maintenance therapy might be required.
  5. Many patients have achieved partial or complete remission after stem cell therapy.
