He was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2 years, and since then, he has been undergoing occupational and speech therapy. BB medical history revealed that he was born by emergency caesarian because he was being choked by his umbilical cord and this caused mild brain damage.

Where umbilical cord derived Mesenchymal stem cells (UCMSCs) were used for the therapy. Stem cells were injected into patient body through two different routes like intravenous route and lumbar puncture. Following the UCMSCs as the primary therapy, he underwent speech and occupational therapy also. The therapy was for one session and the patient was discharged in stable condition from the hospital.
