Age: 37 Sex: Female Nationality: British
Treatment center: Belgrade Date: 05.-26. January 2012
Diagnosis: Primary Progressive Ms
PRE-TREATMENT CONDITION: Physical examination shows stable vital signs. Patient was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Ms in 2008. Since then, Ms symptoms progressed in severity - vision, hand grip, vertigo headaches, pain and stiffness in legs. Other symptoms (fatigue, weakness, energy level, depression) stagnated. No new symptoms occurred. The patient does not use crutches or wheelchair but has extreme walking problems (right leg) and writing (right hand). Weakness in limbs is visible. Energy levels are low, even when resting. Blurry vision is almost constant (probably causes headaches and vertigo). Hand grip is weak in both hands, but much stronger in the left one. Now after treatment patient story is full of optimisim, and six months after stem cell treatment symptoms have significantly improved.
PATIENT CONDITION: After stem cell treatment for Primary Progressive Ms, patient had no side effects, feels fatigued, but not depressed. Initially, she feels that her mood improved significantly. Leg pain and muscle stiffness reacted very well to physiotherapy (especially lymphatic drainage). The patient feels that enhancement procedures helped her symptoms. Her mood, energy level, limb weakness, hand grip and fatigue improved. Headaches, vision problems and vertigo persist (much less intensity)
FOLLOW - UP #1
Treatment center: Belgrade Date: 20. April 2012
Patient condition: 6 months after the treatment, patient shows significant improvements. Long walks are rarely followed by pain and muscle stiffness. She still has some trouble walking, but stability is not a great problem anymore. Limb weakness and hand grip improved but she still cannot write as good as she wants to (but "writing exercises are not a priority") Her vision is still "blurry". Headaches and vertigo are less frequent than three months ago.
Based on the patient's evaluation on the levels of improvement of her condition (improvements of the Ms symptoms are graded 1-10) we can conclude that her overall condition significantly improved (average rating of 5.60) immediately after stem cell administration. First follow-up evaluation showed additional improvements in all of her symptoms (average rating of 7.00) as well as the second follow-up evaluation - final improvement rating of 7.92 which means that the patient's condition improved 79,2 % by her own assessment.

For me, since I got back after my 2 weeks of having my treatment, within 2 days of being home speaking to friends and family around the world, they all noticed the difference in my speaking, cognitively and I was able to listen and integrate with conversations with my family at home.
A wonderful experience, a wonderful care are these very caring people, yes.continue
Everything is done naturally and pleasantly here. Actually I do not feel sick, it is the most important thing – during these 12 days I haven’t felt sick.
I didn’t have the impression that I was treated like a patient. I was treated like a normal person, it is true I take medicines, receive infusions and still have some pain, but I never felt like I was in the hospital.continue
