Former Bangladeshi Cricketer treated for Progressive Supranuclear Paralysis in India (PSP)

December 2018: Tanjeeb Ahsan, 58 yr old former Cricketer by profession was diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Paralysis, which is an uncommon brain disorder that causes serious problems with walking, balance and eye movements.



Tanjeeb was a patient of Diabetes and Hypertension but from 2015 he started facing issues like diminution of vision along with diplopia (double vision) with disturbances in gait, swallowing liquids , difficult and slurred speech and gastrocolic. He undertook treatment for the same in his country for about 6 months following which no improvement was observed in symptoms. He also consulted Neurologists and Ophthalmologist from America. His symptoms only got worse over time and no definitive therapy offered him any relief in his daily difficulties of vision, locomotion, speech and bowel regulation. Upon learning about Regenerative Therapy in India and its implications in his current state of disease, as a last resort, the patient arrived for Cell based therapy in StemRx Biosciense Solutions Pvt. Ltd.

Dr Pradeep Mahajan, Regenerative Medicine Researcher, Adigos Stem cells says, “PSP is a rare brain disorder, hence we had to do proper investigations and then decide the protocol. After evaluation and investigations, we suggested 6 sessions of cellular therapy. This was combined with daily physiotherapy, Yoga therapy, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, stimulation and speech therapy. And we are happy that we got positive results and were able to treat this disorder. “

Tanjeeb Ahsan says, “ I am thankful to Dr. Pradeep Mahajan and his team of doctors, after the cell based therapy marked improvement was noted in binocular vision (acuity and focus), balance (gait stability), speech (lesser slurring), neuromuscular coordination (decreased instability and finity of movement) and bowel movements (regular bowel opening). There is positive impact on the overall health and quality of life as my daily activities are now less difficult and require lesser dependence and support”.

PSP is a disorder caused by damage to certain nerve cells in the brain that results in progressive lack of coordination, stiffness of the neck and trunk, difficulties with eye movement, slow movements, cognitive dysfunction, and difficulty walking that can result in falls.
