Developmental Delay

SmartCell Center offers stem cell treatment for different types of developmental delays.

Developmental delay is the failure of a child to meet certain developmental milestones, such as sitting, walking and talking, at the average age. Developmental delays may indicate a problem in the development of the central nervous system. The child’s mental development is delayed, leading to poor motor and communication skills. Such children catch up to standard development milestones later than normal children.

Our clinic opened 22 years ago and has treated a large number of children from all over the world. Improvements were reported in most cases.

For optimal effect, it is important to start stem cell treatment with your child as early as possible, while the brain is still developing.

Combined treatment involving routine therapy and stem cells results in a number ofimprovements:

  • cognitive improvements;
  • easier contact with the child, starting with eye contact;
  • improved verbal skills. If the child was non-verbal, it is very likely to start making sounds, produce syllables and eventually pronounce words; verbal children are likely to expand their vocabulary;
  • better learning capacity;
  • improved information processing, such as memory, including memorization and storage, information processing and recall;
  • greater self-confidence. Child feels more protected, less vulnerable, and exposure to the environment does not cause negative emotions;
  • improved social adaptation;
  • better self-care skills;
  • boosted immunity.

The advantages of our method are:

  • lack of side effects;
  • no chemicals involved;
  • minimally invasive procedure (IV infusions and injections);
  • no rejection risk;
  • no cancer risk;
  • lifetime follow-up.


The letter from the parents of the patient L.P. with psychomotor delay and secondary immune deficiency

Patient: L.P.
Age: 13
Gender: Female
Diagnosis: Psychomotor delay. Secondary immune deficiency
Country: Denmark
Date of the treatment: 21-22.06.10

We are all fine – thanks!

L. is doing very well. Her spasticity in her legs is decreasing. Her physiotherapist was amazed when checking her legs in August 2010. The quality of walking parents-assisted has improved – she is able to stand seconds longer than before – when walking she seems straighter and more stabile. When evaluated by the Belgium ABR team in August, they found her weight bearing in her shoulders when lying on the stomach has improved much more than expected. Left arm is less rigid. Standing in her standing device has improved too – she can hold her trunk much better. Everybody tells us that her technique when crawling on hands and knees looks much better and more stabile. She is still falling a lot.

Her bladder control is still improving. For the past 4-5 years L. used 5-6 diapers daily. Now she uses 3, 2 diapers only per day since August 2010 – mostly at night. When she is tired it can still be difficult for her to hold until it is time to go to the bathroom. At night there is no change. Concerning her bowel she has mostly control of it but we do see an accident at night once or twice a month. The bowel control is the same. We still see her fingers get white when it is a bit cold. Her Rayneaud syndrome is almost the same.

Her energy level has increased – she has more stamina during the day.

When evaluated at FHC she did her best ever. Her progress since January till July 24th was 115%!!!!! Her growth rate since 2003 has never been over 60%. She showed her intellectual ability very convincingly when speedreading 30 pages in 1 minute and then being able to put 5 sequences from the first chapter written on 5 pieces of paper in the right order without help at all. The book was a book written for adults. She showed her math skills in the same way and there is no doubt any longer how bright she is. Now she shows it. Before the stem cell treatment it was very difficult for her to show it in an unfamiliar environment.

Her ability to communicate nonverbally is increasing – she uses more signs than before and does it faster. She tried harder to participate in dressing herself, locking/unlocking her wheelchair, drinking of a glass independently etc.

We will have a blood test done in November and as soon we get the results you will have them. The physiotherapist will visit us November 25th. Then we will contact you again.

We are looking so much forward to see what the stem cells will bring a year from now – it is amazing what has already happened.

Best regards,
L., J. and M.

Feedback from the patients after stem cell therapy

Three months post-treatment, the patients wrote us the following report on their health condition.

Dear Valentina,

Things have been really good. O.’s OCD – obsessive compulsive behavior – and her anxiety has almost disappeared. Her manual skills has improved, she is now independent pulling up her pants, putting on her shirt and almost independent putting on her socks. She has improved her skills when taking a shower, washing her hair, body, putting conditioner in her hair and so forth.

She has a much more willing attitude to learn new skills and she is now trying to work on the things that are difficult for her. Before she had a very hard time being introduced to things she needed to practice. Also her transitioning has improved, she is smoothly following along and moving on to new activities. Her self-damaging behavior has decreased, she is not hitting herself with the same intensity as before. She is must more calm and cooperative and her compliance has improved in a fantastic way. She is learning new skills and improving very much every week. New sounds and better breathing and she has grown a lot.

In short I would put it this way: it has been the best month in August in all the 10 years I have being doing programs with O. I am so motivated to help her and do the program in contrast to before where is was quite tiresome to do program with O., because she sabotaged the program and was highly oppositional to all things that were introduced to her.

Her prognosis for her heigth was before treatment with stem cells and growth hormone 135 cm. Now the prognosis is 150 cm. And the doctors expect she can get even higher than that.

With regard to me: I have a much better life, more energy, when I do running with O. I am able to do it without getting soar afterwards. I went trough a big court case in August and I was able to focus on O.’s training right after being in the court. So I feel I am better at controlling high stress and getting it out of my system again. I also think my face wrinkles have gotten less and not as deep as before. I look more alive and I feel more alive – and better at cooping with my challenges.

Warmest regards to everybody from O. and M.

Improvements in A.J. condition after the stem cell treatment

Patient: A.J.
Gender: Male
Age: 6
Country: Oman
Diagnosis: Sequels of hypoxic-ischemic damage of the central nervous system with psychomotor delay. Alalia. Symptomatic epilepsy with myoclonic seizures
Dates of treatment: January 21-22, 2015

I am a mother of patient A. who was treated in your centre on January 2015.

A. now completed one year and 2 month from the stem cell treatment. 

He joined intensive physiotherapy programme from last November to February. He did very well in the programme. Really we didn’t imagine that he will get this much of improvements. 

  • Now can change laying position to sitting position without our help.
  • He can also stand on sofa or bed side without our help.
  • He has a good head controll.
  • In general all his movement has improved. 

Still he is not saying any letters or words but he understands what’s going on. 

We take a professional physiotherapy course and we bought  all necessary stuff (like therasuit, standing frame, electrical stimulation machine and others) and we are continuing his programme at home.

I would like to know about his next treatment programme. 

Thank you very much. 

Improvements in Z.M. condition after the stem cell treatment

Patient: Z.M.
Age: 2
Gender: Female
Country: Slovakia
Diagnosis: Organic CMV-induced CNS damage with microcephaly, tetraparesis and cognitive deficit. 
Dates of treatment: November 13-14, 2015

Dear Sirs,

thank you very much for your birthday greetings for our Z. We were very pleased upon receiving it.

We would like to inform you about Z.’s progress which we have noticed:

The stem cells were transplanted in November 13-14, 2015 and since that time Z. completed four weeks of rehabilitation exercises and four horse rides (hippotherapy).

The greatest progress is in the  mental and sciential area = recognition of people – she reacts through laughing or crying.

  • Z. began to laugh out loud when we tickle her or when we cough or sneeze.
  • She began purposefully nibble her fists/hands – thus she is giving a signal that she is hungry.
  • She grew 8 new teeth = she has already 10 teeth.
  • She makes noises:  ej, gay, grr.
  • She can maintain her head up to  approx. 70% and she has stronger back and limbs.
  • She is more mobile, tries to crawl.  When I trig her feet to ground, she tries to pull herself into standing position.

It’s hard to describe the progress fully, thus we’re sending you also some video. For us, it is a very great progress forward and we are very pleased of her. Z. is also very pleased and enjoys when she manages something new, so I think that the treatment with stem cells helped her, because for these last three months she did a lot more that she failed in previous 19-20 months.

Once again, thank you very much and we stay in touch.
