Can stem cells be used to treat cerebellar degeneration?

Not yet.: Stem cells are currently used in bone marrow transplants used to treat leukemia. But they may have the potential to treat diseases such as cancer, parkinson's disease, spinal cord injuries, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, multiple sclerosis, and muscle damage. However, more work is needed. ...Read more

Nutrition beneficial for cerebellar degeneration?

Little to offer: There is one uncommon form of cerebellar degeneration that is kept at bay by very large doses of vitamin e. A b-complex with c vitamin is sometimes given to anyone with brain disease. Beyond this, the primary cerebellar degenerations are progressive and incurable (the only real mimic is paraneoplastic cd). Love those around you & be sure they know of your wishes and needs. ...Read more

What is alcoholic cerebellar degeneration?

What is alcoholic cerebellar degeneration?

Special case: In people who have drunk a lot of alcohol, the upper half of the middle ("vermis") of the cerebellum shrinks ("superior vermal atrophy"), telling the radiologist or pathologist about alcohol use. Beyond contributing some to the overall clumsiness and perhaps personality problems of longtime heavy drinkers, this is not really an entity in itself. ...Read more

Stem cells can be used to treat cerebellar degeneration ..Is that true for alcoholics?

Maybe: Use of adult mesenchymal stem-stromal cells (mscs) are currently in clinical trial in us/internationally. Trend is toward use of fat derived mscs, havested by liposuction, isolated and concentrated in tissue culture. Early reports suggest significant improvement in neurological, autoimmune and organ functions. Research is ongoing to study regeneration, but alcoholics present a cell damage loss. ...Read more

How are cerebellar degeneration, cerebellar ataxia and paraneoplastic cerebellar related?

How are cerebellar degeneration, cerebellar ataxia and paraneoplastic cerebellar related?

Ataxia: Cerebellar degneration means that the part of the brain that controlls coordination and balance is losing cells and likely getting smaller. Ataxia is the clumsiness, imbalance, slurred speech and/or abnormal eye movements that can accompany cerebellar degeneration. A paraneoplastic cerebellar syndrome is when the body's immune response to cancer somewhere else damages the cerebellum "by mistake". ...Read more

What are the tests for cerebellar degeneration?

Exam & imaging: Any physician can spot the more-or-less symmetrical loss of coordination. Imaging studies will often show cerebellar shrinkage. A smoker needs to be checked for a hidden lung cancer that can damage the cerebellum remotely. Most of these have an associated damaged gene and a dna lab may discover it after the diagnosis of cd is finalized. ...Read more

What is cerebellar degeneration?

Illness family: This is a group of thankfully-uncommon illnesses, almost all of them genetic, in which the principal cells of the cerebellar cortex die off over time. Generalized lack of coordination results. One is treatable with big doses of vitamin E but this does not touch the rest. The other entity to rule out is remote effects of a small lung cancer. Good luck. ...Read more
