Neurologic Bone Marrow Derived Stem Cell Treatment Study (NEST)


Phase: Not Applicable

DESCRIPTION:

The Healing Institute in Margate, FL, is conducting a trial utilizing autologous (from the patient’s own body) stem cells to treat the following neurological diseases:

  • Neurologic Disorders
  • Nervous System Diseases
  • Neurodegenerative Diseases
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Cadasil
  • Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy
  • Cerebral Infarction
  • Cerebral Ischemia
  • Cerebral Stroke
  • Cerebral Hemorrhage
  • Parkinson
  • Multi-System Degeneration
  • MSA – Multiple System Atrophy
  • Progressive Supranuclear Palsy
  • ALS
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
  • Neuropathy
  • Diabetic Neuropathies

The treatment involves aspiration of the bone marrow from the iliac crest (ridge of the hip bone), then those stem cells isolated from the bone marrow are administered to the patient in one of the 2 methods: IV or as a combination of IV + nasal swab.


PATIENT MUST:

  • Be 18 years of age and older
  • Have a diagnosis of one of the neurological diseases listed, with 6 months elapsed since onset
  • Be medically cleared for the bone marrow aspiration procedure

THE STUDY INVOLVES:

  1. Prescreening tests to confirm eligibility of the patient to participate.
  2. Surgical recovery of bone marrow aspirate, an outpatient procedure
  3. A delay while the stem cells are derived
  4. Return after a preparation period to receive the stem cells either via IV or IV + nasal swab
  5. Activities of Daily Living (ADL) will be assessed at 3,6 and 12 months following the procedure

LOCATIONS AND CONTACTS:
