this question is regarding my mother.
She has been diagnosed with advanced stage of liver cirhosis in March and since then her condition is deteriorating.
Now she has got Acute Liver failure along with ascites, gall bladder stone,spleenomegaly,SBP,Hepatic encalopathy,low HB count.doctor is saying only way is transplant but we have got no donor as within family our blood group is not matching with hers.
i got to know something as liver regeneration from stem cell therapy.
Could anyone tell me where it is been introduced in India successfully?
Please answer ASAP, as docs are saying my mother has got omly three mnths time.
There is no approved stem cell therapy, it is all experimental. Transplant is the best option. You can google about "acute on chronic liver failure", there are some newer treatments that may be helpful.
All the very best.
