Nirma – SMA III Stem Cell Patient

Nirma traveled from Indonesia to China to receive transplants of umbilical cord blood stem cells--a form of adult stem cells--to treat symptoms associated with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type III.

SMA III is caused by a rare genetic mutation. While the treatment she received is not a cure for SMA III it can offer progressive quality of life improvements for a patient.
