Stem Cell Therapy for Stroke in Malaysia 2020

In recent years, stem cell therapy has gained popularity as a promising complementary treatment option for stroke. However, there is also a lot of confusion due to the overwhelming mixing of credible scientific information and marketing hypes available on the internet.
Stem cells have been used extensively for many proven indications like leukemias or genetic disorders like thalassaemia. Bone marrow haematopoietic stem cell (HSCs) transplants have more than 35 years of patient applications in blood diseases and cancer.

Due to its potential, stem cell therapy has also been repurposed into newer indications such as neurological disorders. A key issue in the treatment of neurologic diseases is that injurious processes are often irreversible because nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are unable to spontaneously regenerate. However, neural plasticity has been observed experimentally in both global and focal brain ischaemia in animal models (Neurol India. 2009). Whether neurogenesis increases in response to brain and neural lesions or stem cells can be used for transplantation are the potential questions to be answered.

Stroke remains a significant clinical unmet condition with only 3% of ischaemic patient population benefiting from the thrombolytic drug tissue plasminogen activator largely because of the drug’s narrow 3-hour therapeutic window. Functional recovery may occur in a small or a localized brain injury using rehabilitation measures, but for large ischaemic strokes the restoration may require new synaptic connections within and away from the damaged tissue. For these reasons, the prospects of repairing the neuron system, using cell transplantation seems promising and may offer a unique approach for brain repair and restoration of function.

As of June 2020, there are more than 3,000 scientific publications on stem cell and stroke on PubMed.gov.

As of June 2020, more than 80 studies have been launched to investigate the benefits of stem cell therapy and stroke. You can review the status of these trials on clinicaltrials.gov.


Stem Cell Therapy Price for Stroke in Malaysia

Stem cell therapy prices will vary depending on the type of stem cells, the cell count and will also vary from clinic to clinic based on their treatment protocol.

As a guide, the cost of mesenchymal stem cells in Malaysia will vary from RM 50,000 to RM 70,000 for 100 million cells.

Some doctors may also recommend supplements to support the stem cell therapy. This may incur additional cost or may be included as part of the package.
