An English priest living in Baghdad, Iraq has had his own Adult Stem Cells used to treat his Multiple Sclerosis. , the vicar of St. George’s Church in Baghdad was the recipient of this stem cell therapy to treat MS.
No Ethical Issues to Use His Own Stem Cells for Multiple Sclerosis
Andrew has a medical background and had helped establish the Bone Marrow Transplant Centre in Baghdad in 2001. He was good friends with Dr. Majid, the director of the center who saw that Andrew was suffering from the effects of his Multiple Sclerosis and approached him about using his own Adult Stem Cells for treatment. Andrew had no objections or ethical issues about using his own stem cells and agreed to the stem cell therapy.
Process of Using Andrew’s Own Adult Stem Cells
- Both his arms were cannulised
- He was connected to the Blood Cell Separator
- Blood was taken from one arm and the stem cells were removed and then the blood was returned through his other arm (took 2 hours)
- Andrew’s own Adult Stem Cells were injected into his spinal cord via lumbar puncture
Good luck Andrew. My best wishes to you. Since you used your own stem cells, you have nothing to lose- and much to gain.
Hopefully it will turn out well- like Jason Bradshaw, the Texas Sheriff who also had stem cell therapy for Multiple Sclerosis, albeit using a different technique- Adult Stem Cells taken from his fat and a mixture of cord blood stem cells too.
