According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the estimated prevalence of autism in the United States was 1 in 150 children in 2000. Currently, the prevalence has increased to 1 in 36 children, a staggering 315% increase.
Stem cell therapy using Wharton's Jelly mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) holds great promise for helping children with autism. Wharton's Jelly MSCs are a type of stem cell that is found in the umbilical cord. They have the ability to differentiate into various cell types. These cells have anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects, which may help improve the symptoms of autism in children.
Children with autism often have high levels of inflammation in their brains. It can lead to damage to neural tissue and impaired brain function. The anti-inflammatory properties of Wharton's Jelly MSCs can help to reduce this inflammation and promote healing and regeneration of neural tissue.
Regeneration of damaged neural tissues
Modulation of immune system
Increased production of growth factors
Wharton's Jelly MSCs have low immunogenicity, meaning they are less likely to cause an adverse immune response in the recipient. This makes them a safe and well-tolerated treatment option for children with autism.
Studies have shown that stem cell therapy using Wharton's Jelly MSCs can help improve social communication, behavioral and cognitive function in children with autism. It can offer a safe, convenient, and effective approach to improving their symptoms and quality of life. See some of these studies below. If you have further questions, contact us to speak to a doctor or a past Stem Cell Medical Center patient who has seen significant improvement in symptoms of ASD.
While relatively few treatments currently exist to help manage the symptoms of ASD or to treat it at its roots, stem cell therapy has emerged as an effective, safe and well-tolerated solution with little to no adverse effects. The Stem Cell Medical Center, having already had success treating children with ASD, is paving the way to create consistent results using Wharton’s Jelly stem cells.
So how does it work?
Our stem cell therapy is a low-risk, minimally invasive treatment involving intravenous infusion of millions of Wharton’s Jelly mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Our healthcare professionals take extra precautions to ensure that the treatment environment is as calm and
predictable as possible. This may involve reducing sensory stimuli, such as noise or bright lights, and using calming techniques to help the child feel more relaxed and at ease.
A significant portion of the autistic population has immune dysregulation. So MSCs, which can possess immunological properties, not only repair inflammation, but regenerate and replace damaged cells in the brain by releasing growth factors that regulate immune imbalance and promote tissue healing.
Additionally, MSCs may aid in repairing damaged tissue, such as inflammatory gastrointestinal issues, by releasing anti-inflammatory cytokines, promoting growth factors, and restoring plasticity, thereby integrating the neural network. Clinical studies have reported impressive results, although the exact mechanism of how MSCs work is not yet clear.

Is it for you?
Many parents have struggled to try to find an effective way to treat or manage their children’s symptoms of ASD. While there is no cure today, stem cell therapy offers an innovative approach that could drastically improve the daily lives of children with autism.
To determine if stem cell therapy using Wharton's Jelly MSCs is a viable treatment option for your child, it is important to consider their age, severity of symptoms, medical history, and other treatments. Contact us today to speak to a physician and learn if your child may be a good candidate.
There are several traditional treatment options for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) to manage their symptoms. These treatments can be tailored to meet the individual needs and symptoms of each child. They include therapy (behavioral, speech, and occupational), specialized education programs, medication, and nutritional/dietary intervention.
- Traditional treatments have been studied for many years and have a long track record of success in treating various symptoms associated with ASD.
- Traditional treatments are often covered by health insurance plans and are more widely available than newer treatments.
- Behavioral therapy, which is a common traditional treatment for ASD, has been shown to improve social skills, communication, and behavior in children with ASD.
- Medications such as antipsychotics and antidepressants can also help manage symptoms such as anxiety, depression, and aggression
- Traditional treatments may not be effective for all children with ASD, and may only address some symptoms rather than the underlying causes of the disorder.
- Medications can have side effects and may not be well-tolerated by all children.
- Traditional treatments can be time-consuming and expensive and may require ongoing therapy and/or medication management.
WOULD YOU BE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THIS PROCEDURE?
It's important to note that each patient is unique, and their specific situation will determine whether they are a good candidate for stem cell treatment. A consultation with a qualified healthcare provider is necessary to determine if this treatment is appropriate for an individual.
- Patients must have confirmed diagnosis of a condition
- Patients should be in good overall health and be able to undergo treatment
- Patients must be of a certain age or older, depending on the specific treatment
- Patients who have previously undergone other treatments for their condition that were ineffective

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental condition that affects communication, social skills, behavior, and sensory processing. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 59 children has been identified with ASD. While there is no known “cure” for autism, emerging research suggests that stem cell therapy may help improve…Read More ❱
