Efficacy of Fetal Stem Cell Transplantation in Autism Spectrum Disorders: An Open-Labeled Pilot Study 09 March 2015

A pilot study showed no adverse effects of fetal stem cell transplantations in treating children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders and proved effective in improving speech, sociability, sensory, and overall health of the patients.

Lab-Grown Neurons From Autistic Kids Could Lead to New Treatments 30 November 2014

Progress in stem cell research can help identify the underlying genetic causes of autism and develop new treatments.

Bryan, the Italian boy from Aiello del Sabato, is one of those from our country who has been to Ukraine where they practice this type of treatment.

Mesenchymal stem cells in treating autism: Novel insights 02 May 2014

MSCs could exert a positive effect in ASDs through the following mechanisms: stimulation of repair in the damaged tissue, e.g., inflammatory bowel disease; synthesizing and releasing anti-inflammatory cytokines and survival-promoting growth factors; integrating into existing neural and synaptic network, and restoring plasticity.

Autism Treatment

Background, Causes, and Symptoms

Autism is one of the five pervasive developmental disorders (PDD), which are characterized by widespread abnormalities of social interactions and communication, severely restricted interests and highly repetitive behaviour. Autism affects information processing in the brain by altering how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize; how this occurs is not well understood.

The main goals when treating children with autism are to lessen associated deficits and family distress, and to increase quality of life and functional independence. No single treatment is the best and treatment is typically tailored to the child's needs. Families and the educational system are the main resources for treatment.

Stem cell therapy for autism

Cell Therapy Center EmCell offers stem cell treatment for autism. Stem cell therapy is a novel and effective approach to treating autism and is based on the unique ability of stem cells to influence metabolism, immune system and restore damaged cells and tissues. EmCell's experience in treating autism and the results achieved in patients prove the role of EmCell as an excellent autism treatment center.

Fetal stem cells (FSC) that we use in autism treatment positively affect all body organs and systems, and, first of all, this treatment targets the brain. In autism, areas of brain regulating memory, concentration, attention, speech etc. are damaged. Stem cell treatment improves blood and oxygen flow to the brain (improved perfusion), replaces damaged neurons and stimulates formation of the new arteries. After some time, FSC acquire properties of cells surrounding them and multiply into these cells, which results in white and gray matter restoration and, consequently, in subsidence of neurologic symptoms and improved intellectual capacity. It has been proven that mesenchymal stem cells improve immune system and terminate inflammation. CD34 stimulation helps formation of the new arteries in hypoxic tissues, thus they increase blood flow in the temporal lobe and other parts of the brain.

We treat autism with meso- and ectodermal stem cells harvested from 5-8 week old fetuses, tested and certified by the state. These cells are pluripotent and, administered to a pattient, differentiate into cell types needed by the body (neurons, oligodendrocytes, blood cells etc.).

Stem cell therapy targets several aspects of concern:

  •  immunity;
  • metabolism;
  • communication ability; and
  • learning capacity, memory, thinking.

Improvement is reached through restoration of the lost (impaired) neuron connections and formation of the new neuron connections, speeding up brain reactions through improvement of synaptic transmission and development of the new neuron connections.

Based on our practice, we outline the following expected improvements in autistic children after the stem cell therapy:

  1. Better tolerance of different foods and improved digestion. Some children start trying new foods and liking them.
  2. Easier contact with the child (first of all, eye contact). Children who were not fixing their gaze on the objects start looking at them with interest.
  3. More adequate behavior at home and outside.
  4. Less or no fear of loud noises, strangers and bright colors (gradual improvement).
  5. Improved verbal skills (if the child is non-verbal, s/he is very likely to start making sounds, syllables, and then pronounce words; bigger vocabulary in verbal children).
  6. Writing skills improvement or development.
  7. Improved self-care skills.
  8. Improved attention span and concentration.

Though the degree of the above improvements varies, they were reported in all cases.

One of the main goals of stem cell therapy is triggering brain development, and then the child’s body will do its own work. Children should be happy, and the parents are to prepare them for happy adult life by developing skills they will need the most, such as communication, self-care, educational and professional skills.

In order to be happy, autistic person should have:

  1. Feeling that his life is well-planned.
  2. Well adapted communication system.
  3. Self-care skills.
  4. Ability to study and work.
  5. Leisure skills.
  6. Communication skills (and be happy to communicate with people).

Stem cell therapy is an effective and safe method of autism treatment and can help many children suffering from autism and autistic spectrum disorders of different degree. However, cell therapy is the dessert, not the main course, and integrated treatment (diet, educational program) is recommended for optimal results. 

The earlier autism is diagnosed and the earlier parents start helping the child, including stem cell therapy, the more chance the child has to be happy!


We have treated with stem cells more than 250 autistic children from various countries of the world, namely, from the USA (California, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, etc.), Canada (Calgary, Surrey and others), the Great Britain (Northampton), Sweden (Onsala), UAE (Dubai), Montenegro (Bar), Serbia (Belgrade), and others. Below are some parents’ comments about their experience and improvements they see in their children.
