Culturing stem cells to use to treat certain illnesses is already a reality. In Spain, two labs have received authorization from the Agencia Espanola de Medicamento y Productos Sanitarios to produce stem cells, and there are others waiting to be certified.
Currently, just one public health center, the Gregorio Maranon Hospital in Madrid (HGM) and one private center, the Clinica Universitaria in Navarra (CUN) have undergone the rigid system of quality certification to become “Good Manufacturing Regulations” (GMR) laboratories and are developing stem cell products to be administered and transplanted into
At the San Timoteo Hospital in Termoli-Larino (Molise, a small region in south central Italy, formerly part of the region “Abruzzi e Molise”) everything is ready for stem cells gathering – in conjunction with the orthopedy ward (branch of medicine dealing with diseases of the bones and joints) – which will be used for local treatments, above all on pseudo-arthrosis.
A children’s book about a little stem cell named Doris who is transformed into a Super Stemmy to fight her adversarys!
This is the first children’s book in the world about ADULT STEM CELLS!
Doris is a repair stem cell with some very remarkable qualities. Her will and persistence is vigorously challenged during her quest to overcome adversity and improve the health of an ailing heart.
Come join the adventure and discover the natural healing capabilities of the repair stem cells residing in all of us. Don’t wait! Dive right in to the exploits of Doris and the Super Cells!

Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem discovered a method to potentially eliminate the tumor-risk factor in utilizing human embryonic stem cells, said the university on Wednesday.
The researchers’ work paves the way for further progress in the promising field of stem cell therapy, said the press release of the university sent to Xinhua.
According to the release, human embryonic stem cells are theoretically capable of differentiation to all cells of the mature human body (and are hence defined as “pluripotent“).
This ability, along with the ability to remain undifferentiated indefinitely in culture, make regenerative medicine using human
Joseph Wagner sees most cell-therapy companies offering little more than a bag of cells.
His company will give the bag a little direction.
Cell Targeting is developing technology that can point stem cell therapies to specific areas of the body. Among the many challenges in cell therapy is direction: not enough of the stem cells are getting to the tissues that needs treatment (…)
Currently a stem cell therapy can help different parts of the body. That attracts more customers, but doesn’t do much when the company wants to differentiate its product and charge a different price.
