Stem Cell Therapy for Mitochondrial Cytopathy-Hope Medical Group


Mitochondrion DiagramMitochondria are small organs which contain enzymes and they are responsible for generating energy. The presence of Mitochondria is all pervading. As mitochondrion acts as a power house of a cell, it plays an important role in cell metabolism.
If in case, mitochondrial can’t produce sufficient amount of energy in cells, it can lead to a disease which is known as Mitochondrial Cytopathy. In this disease, generally brain, heart and muscles are affected because these parts of a body consumes maximum amount of energy that is generated by mitochondrial.
The cause of this disease is not pinpointed but some practitioners believe that Mitochondrial Cytopathy is the direct result of genetic abnormality. A child can acquire this rare disease from his/her parents. When an embryo develops in the womb, a spontaneous mutation can cause this disease.

Sometimes a person, who is suffering from Mitochondrial Cytopathy, can experience mild symptoms but sometimes the symptoms may become severe and in that situation, it should be brought under medical attention.

As heart is affected by this disease, a patient may face some difficulties while breathing. One can experience dizziness or numbness because of the lack of energy production by mitochondria. Seizures, hearing loss and headache are some of the common symptoms of this disease. A patient may have a physical stature and he can be susceptible to diabetes.

Mental abnormality and an irregular eye movement are some of the important signs of Mitochondrial Cytopathy. This disease is sometimes associated with some problems of liver and gastrointestinal disorders. The symptoms of this disease can emerge in any stage of a person’s life.

Sometimes one can experience sporadic movements in muscles and one may have to face some difficulties while swallowing food. Fatigue and the increasing level of cerebrospinal protein are some of the important signs of this disease. Nausea and muscle cramps are also some of the conspicuous symptoms of this disease.

Maternal and Mendelian are the two most common types of Mitochondrial Cytopathy. These two are different from each other depending on their inheritance patterns. In Maternal inheritance, a child is affected by a genetic disorder through his mother. But the symptoms can vary even within a single family.

Chromosomal defect is the main cause of the second type of Mitochondrial Cytopathy. Kearns-Sayre syndrome and Leigh’s Syndrome are also some of the common types of Mitochondrial Cytopathy.

Stem Cells Treatment for Mitochondrial Cytopathy

The treatment protocol for mitochondrial myopathy involves managing the symptoms and slowing down the progress of the disease. Treatment measures include taking vitamins, reducing physiological stress and undergoing diet therapy. However, with the advances that medical science is making, stem cell therapy could open up treatment avenues for this disease. Treated a patient suffering from mitochondrial encephalomyopathy neurogastrointestinal. The patient received umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (UCMSC) infusions and observed dramatic decrease in symptoms. So, there is hope that even mitochondrial myopathy may be treated using stem cell therapy.
