Cerebral palsy refers to a group of non-progressive, non-contagious motor conditions which lead to physical handicap in human development. Causes of Cerebral Palsy are congenital, pre-birth, cerebral anoxia, or medical influence during pregnancy. Youngsters are more likely diagnosed with cerebral palsy than adolescents or adults.

Causes of Cerebral Palsy
Recent research has confirmed that infections in the mother may greatly increase the risk of the child developing the cerebral palsy.

After birth, other causes include physical cerebral injury, hypoxia to the brain, shaken baby syndrome, toxins, jaundice, lead poisoning, and meningitis.
The Stem Cell Department of General Hospital of Chinese People's Armed Police Forces and the 309th Hospital of Chinese People's Liberation Army is the first neural stem cell transplantation center at home and abroad, which went through WHO clinical trial registration, obtained the FDA clinical trial approval and had laboratory with GMP certification of stem cell research and preparation. Has high reputation worldwide in stem cell treatments for cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury syndrome, ulcerative colitis, cirrhosis, stroke, diabetes and multiple system atrophy. Until now, we have used stem cell therapy to treat about 10,000+ patients from more than 30 countries. More About Us >>
