Optic nerve atrophy. What is it?

In order for the information received from the outside world to be transformed into a clear image, many processes are involved. The optic nerve plays an important role in this.

As a result of many factors, the optic nerve can atrophy, that is, stop performing its functions. Diseases, pathological changes, trauma – all this can lead to atrophy of the optic nerve.

Important About Optic Nerve Atrophy:

  1. It’s not an independent disease. Almost always develops against the background of other disorders.
  2. Atrophy is the partial destruction of the fibers of the optic nerve, which leads to partial or complete blindness.
  3. More often men and people over 50 are affected, but it can also develop in childhood.

Stem cell therapy

Stem cell treatment of optic nerve atrophy in practice shows good results.

  • Improvement of vision by 15-30% depending on the degree of the disease
  • Restoration of the ability to distinguish colors
  • In some cases, it is possible to recover rhenium up to 90%

Treatment is selected strictly by a doctor with personal consultation. The doctor will study the analyzes, studies, and also collect the necessary anamnesis.

Treatment is carried out in a course. The duration and composition of the course is determined only by the doctor.

Stem Cell Sources

For injections or stem cell transplants, doctors often use 2 sources:

  • Donor (hematopoietic stem cells). Such cells are obtained from the umbilical cord blood of a donor.
  • Own MSCs. Own SC can be obtained from the patient’s bone marrow or adipose tissue.

Interesting Facts! Why do we use mesenchymal stem cells?

  • MSCs (mesenchymal stem cells) divide easily and self-renew.
  • Among other types of stem cells, it’s MSCs that are ideal for transplantation for optic neuropathies and optic nerve atrophy.
  • There are almost no side reactions
  • MSCs are obtained from the patient’s bone marrow (most often)
  • Mesenchymal cells have regenerative and immunostimulating properties.
  • The treatment is suitable for patients of any age with any form and degree of atrophy.

Feedback from patients after MSC transplantation with optic nerve atrophy speaks for itself. For some patients, the therapy returned 30% of the vision lost after cancer, for others it returned the ability to distinguish colors. After surgery and treatment of optic nerve atrophy, patients leave positive feedback. This patient thanked the doctors for returning his sight.
