This picture was in the American magazine “Popular Science” in August, 2007. It reported that Professor Tian Zengmin and his medical team from Nerve Disease Treatment Center of PLA Navy General Hospital performed neural stem cell transplantation for a Swedish child with brain necrosis (NCL) with robotic stereotactic technique. The child took neural stem cell transplantation in 2005 for the first time. Currently the clinical symptoms are relived and improve continuously.
NCL, also known as neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis, is a worldwide problem and lack of effective treatments. The main symptoms of NCL are dementia, decreased vision, epilepsy and movement degradation. It would progress gradually with bad prognosis. The great effect shows stereotactic brain stem cell transplantation of Nerve Disease Treatment Center of PLA Navy General Hospital has reached the world advanced level.
Nerve Disease Treatment Center of PLA Navy General Hospital has used neural stem cell therapy for nerve functional disease since 2000 and now has treated multiple brain injury diseases. These diseases include cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, intractable epilepsy, cerebellum atrophy, stroke sequela and brain trauma sequela etc. And patients come from various countries and regions, like the United States, Germany, Britain, Italy, Canada, Sweden, Russia, Iraq and Qatar, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan and so on. They all have received great effect from the treatments.
