5 THINGS TO KNOW: About Stem Cell Therapy and Lyme Disease
#1: While most Lyme disease patients respond to standard antibiotic treatment, stem cell therapy may help with lingering muscle aches, fatigue and other symptoms.
#2: Patients are treated with their own stem cells from their fat. The fat is obtained by a liposuction procedure.
#3: The stem cells are freed from the fat using an enzyme in a closed, sterile single-use system. This produces a richer, more potent mixture of stem cells.
#4: Patients with Lyme disease are treated with an IV infusion of adult stem cells to reduce inflammation and minimize pain. For patients with neurological symptoms, Mannitol is given before the infusion to help the stem cells cross the blood-brain barrier.
#5: They may also help to regulate immune responses and aid in attacking the Borrelia bacteria.
