Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is an umbrella name for a set of neuro developmental disorders that primarily impact an individual’s behaviour, speech, and social interaction. Autism is the most prevalent form of ASD.
Autism Spectrum Disorder may manifest as a variety of symptoms, with varying degrees of severity and functional independence. Other conditions that may be classified under ASD based on these characteristics include Asperger’s Syndrome, Rett Syndrome, Pervasive Developmental Disorders Not Otherwise Specified (PDDNOS), and so on.
Parents usually detect symptoms of ASD before their children reach the age of two or three. The child’s physical milestones are usually on schedule, but their cognitive milestones, such as speech, eye contact, and interaction, lag or regress.
What are the early indications and symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?
A lack of attentiveness is the first indication of ASD. The kid makes no effort to establish eye contact or reacts to its name. There is a lack of movement, voice, and facial expression mimicry. Additionally, there is a delay in speaking and a lack of engagement.
Some children have symptom regression; they grow normally until a particular age, then regress in terms of speech, eye contact, and learning. Many parents believe their children are “lost in their own worlds.” Even in their own families, they seem to be disconnected from others.
ASD is often accompanied by physical and mental health problems (comorbids). GI problems, seizures, sleep difficulties, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, and phobias are among them.
Stem cell therapy for autism treatment is being studied extensively in India and across the world. Doctors all around the world are working on regenerative medicine as a potential treatment for children who exhibit symptoms of Autism.
Although autism is a complicated neurodevelopmental disease, many researchers have collaborated to investigate how it develops, its impact on the brain, and the best autism treatment options.
The lack of oxygen flow to the brain and immunological deterioration are the two main diseases associated to autism. These variables have a direct link to impaired brain function. Additionally, an imbalance in brain activity may result in autism-related forms.
The whole idea of stem cell therapy at SCCI, one of India’s top autism treatment facilities, is founded on the notion that stem cells have the ability to differentiate into various cells and form specialised cells from the mother cell. These stem cells may aid in the molecular, structural, and functional healing of the damaged brain tissue. They use paracrine disciplinary functions to get to the heart of autism’s neuropathology. It has the ability to control cell differentiation, tissue and organ repair, as well as anti-inflammatory properties. As a result, researchers and physicians are increasingly considering stem cell therapy for autism.
