intranasal injection

When considering a regenerative cell treatment that is most effective for your condition, the administration of the cells back in to the body may be one of the most important aspects. Along with the widely utilized intravascular (IV) method of re-introduction, there are several ways that these powerful cells can be placed back in the body to reach specific areas of concern. When targeting damage, degeneration, and/or inflammation within the tissues of the brain, in conjunction with the IV method is an injection of the cells intranasally.

The intranasal injection has been effectively performed at our facility by our team of physicians for over 4 years, providing promising results to those battling a wide range of neurological conditions. This technique is used widely throughout the neurological community to get medications and substances directly to the brain and is now being explored in the field of regenerative medicine. Using this method allows the physician overseeing your procedure the ability to get the harvested mesenchymal stem cells to the tissues of the brain. Our Stemedix™ team of physicians fully believe that the intranasal delivery of stem cells can effectively bypass the blood-brain barrier (BBB). The blood-brain barrier is a semipermeable membrane that filters circulating blood from the brain. By using the intranasal method, stem cells can easily bypass the blood-brain barrier without the use of medication. This technique will allow the stem cells to target the brain and target the tissues responsible for a wide range of neurological conditions, including Alzheimer’s, Frontal Lobe Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease.

The intranasal injection procedure begins with the licensed performing physician numbing the entire nasal cavity using a local anesthetic, Lidocaine. Once this area is completely numbed, the harvested stem cells are gently injected, using a small needle, into the nose towards the back of the nasal cavity. Located within this area are blood vessels that lead directly into the tissues of the brain. This form of administration is considered a minimally invasive, out-patient process and is completed in under ten minutes. There is no post-operative care involved, however a follow up appointment is scheduled for the morning after your regenerative stem cell therapy.
