Lyme disease is an infectious pathology that develops after a tick bite. Often, this disease affects nervous and cardiovascular systems. Meningitis, meningoencephalitis, lymphocytic meningoradiculitis, myocarditis, endocarditis, and other complications are possible. Skin, joints, and other organs and tissues are affected. Although antibiotics are the treatment basis, since they eliminate the cause of inflammation, residual effects are often observed after the completion of a primary therapy. Therefore, in addition to etiotropic therapy, the pathogenetic one is also applied. In Germany, patients with chronic Lyme disease can receive stem cells treatment.
What are the effects of the stem cell therapy?
There are hundreds of cell types in the human body. But all of them arise from the single precursors – stem cells. Any tissue can be formed from these cells, for example, nervous, muscular, or connective. Ability of body to recover depends on the number of stem cells. Their reserve decreases with age. This explains why in the childhood recovery from injuries and illnesses is quick and doesn’t have any consequences. While in the middle and, especially, old age, the body’s capabilities are significantly limited.
Stem cells are used to restore recovery functions of the organs and tissues damaged by Lyme disease. With their help doctors can achieve the following results:
- Strengthen the immunity, which will more effectively fight spirochetes – Lyme disease pathogens
- Increase the body tone, eliminate asthenic syndrome
- Restore structure and function of damaged organs and tissues
- Accelerate recovery after the Lyme disease
- Increase working capacity
- Relieve joint inflammation
Additionally, a number of positive effects arise. Stem cells slow down aging and improve function of internal organs.
Is the therapy safe?
The stem cell therapy in patients with Lyme disease is safe. German doctors know when to use it, and when to postpone the procedure for a more suitable time. Usually, stem cell therapy is not prescribed in the first phase of Lyme disease, when general intoxication is present. In the second and third phases, as well as after the antibiotic therapy, stem cells are successfully applied and demonstrate good results.
The autologous cells are used for the treatment. They are received from patient himself, but not from a donor. Therefore, there are no complications.
Following side effects are possible during the treatment:
- Short-term exacerbation of chronic pathology
- Redness and tenderness at the injection site
As a rule, all symptoms pass quickly, usually in two weeks maximum. After that, a steady improvement comes.
How to treat the Lyme disease by means of stem cells?
First, the patient undergoes examination. The doctor assesses his condition and identifies all complications of Lyme disease. Such parenteral infections as HIV, syphilis, viral hepatitis, cytomegalovirus are also obligatory excluded.
Then the next step of stem cells obtaining follows. They are taken from different parts of the body – bone marrow (in this case iliac crest puncture is carried out), adipose tissue, or patient’s blood. The doctor counts the number of cells and assesses their viability.
Obtained stem cells are cultured. This process allows doctor to increase their number. Then they are injected into a patient's body. Exact procedure depends on the specific problems caused by Lyme disease. The cells may be injected:
- In the regional bloodstream – in the arterial system, which supplies a specific organ
- In the systemic blood circulation – the cells are injected intravenously and spread throughout the body
- In the cerebrospinal fluid (by lumbar puncture) – if the symptoms of central nervous system lesion prevail
- Directly into the affected organ during the surgery
