Stem Cell Research Shown To Improve ALS

Stem Cell Research Shown To Improve ALS
In a recent published clinical stem cell research study, adult stem cells were shown to help delay Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) progression and improve an ALS patient’s quality of life. This research study was believed to be the first published study comparing ALS patients who had their own […]

Home Run for Lou Gehrig’s Disease With Stem Cell

A recent scientific follow-up study of patients who underwent autologous stem cell therapy for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig‘s disease, has proved the effectiveness of the therapy. Returning Hope, in Thailand, is one of the first Asian health care providers to arrange for this type of stem cell treatment.
The follow up study was conducted by a team from Akay Hospital, GATA, the University of Marmara, and the Sila Neurorehabilitation Center. It followed 13 patients for one year after stem cell treatment for ALS.

Participants in the study had the following outcomes:

Nine of thirteen participants had significant improvement, proven by

UT Houston enrolls first patient in stem cell study for stroke

Roland "Bud" Henrich, 61, was the first stroke patient to be enrolled in a Phase I trial using his own stem cells.

For the first time in the United States, a stroke patient has been intravenously injected with his own bone marrow stem cells as part of a research trial at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston.
Sean Savitz, M.D., assistant professor of neurology at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, leads a first-of-its-kind bone marrow stem cell therapy study for stroke patients.

Advancements in stem cell research could make it possible for one baby’s umbilical cord to repair his brother’s eyesight

It’s the same umbilical cord that helped to bring Jakob Bielskis a baby brother three weeks ago.
Now, that cord and its treasure trove of genetic material may bring Jakob a clear view of his younger sibling in the future, as doctors use cord-blood stem cells to reverse the blindness the older boy was born with.

That’s the hope of Jakob’s mom and dad, Dawn Villeneuve and Richard Bielskis, as they go through the first frazzled weeks with a new baby — like any infant, Jaxon Bielskis is wide awake at 1:30 a.m., and asleep during the day.
“He’s doing great —
