Parathyroid Glands

Jump to: navigation, search

Parathyroid insufficiency was the first disease treated by fresh cell therapy/cell transplantation according to the official history, and very succesfully, since it saved the life of the dying patient and the patient lived without any additional cell transplantation another 27 years. Despite that cell transplantation of parathyroid, thyroid, hypothalamus, placenta, in case certain genetic disease also of kidney and adrenal cortex, has been used extremely rarely, or at least there are barely any reports. Apparently the thyroid surgeons learned their anatomy, or the parathyroid hormone substitution has worked well in clinical practice, and autoimmune diseases of parathyroids have not become as common as autoimmune diseases of thyroid, i.e. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.

A rare case report of a 53 years’ old female with hypoparathyroidism after thyroidectomy that suffered for 10 years from inadequate substitution therapy by AT10, vitamin D and calcium. Her condition gradually deteriorated until she became completely disabled. Already the 1st cell transplantation by parathyroid, thyroid, hypothalamus and placenta, brought on a marked improvement. Such treatment was repeated every 12 months and patient remained well. VI.BIBLIOGRAPHY [95]

A 33 years old female underwent bilateral thyroidectomy for struma. Immediately after the operation a tetany developed, with marked hypocalcemia and low parathyroid hormone level. Cell transplantation of parathyroids brought on extremely fast ecovery. Cell transplantation did not have to be repeated. VI.BIBLIOGRAPHY [331]
