It expects a satisfactory outcome of the 3700 patients who were treated with stem cells until December of 2011, as part of the studies conducted in Cuba on this therapy.

The effects are similar to those from developed countries to avoid most major amputations sick, the newspaper Granma said Porfirio Hernandez, coordinator of the National Group for Regenerative Medicine, Ministry of Public Health.

But he said that the procedure is still in clinical trials with strict selection criteria, although such services are provided in 10 of the 15 provinces of the Caribbean country.

Six of 10 patients treated with the procedure had severe ischemia of the lower limbs, followed by number of regenerative cell therapy.

Hernandez said Cuba has achievements that are real contributions to international scientific literature in this area, as experienced improvement in individuals with chronic lymphedema of the lower limbs.

Also highlighted the favorable response obtained in less suffering from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, in whom the treatment based on stem cell graft avoided the need for a lung transplant.

With the ability to divide indefinitely, stem cells can regenerate tissues damaged by disease, trauma or aging and are derived primarily from bone marrow, peripheral blood, cornea, brain, lung, and endometrium.

  1. I was diagnosed Multiple Sclerosis in the remittent form 9 years ago at the age of 54. I went to Poland in 2010 to receive the Zamboni treatment. It was successful for 2 years but went back to the previous limitations and limping of the right leg. I am now ready to try the stem cells treatment of the less intrusive form or whatever you suggest. I would like to have an approximation of the cost and duration of the treatment.
    Thank you, Truly yours,

    1. Hello, I hope you are feeling better. I just learn that one member of my family just got the diagnosis with ALS, for that reason, I am doing research to look for help. I saw the comment you wrote more than a year ago. I am just wondering how you are doing.

  2. I have ms, the slow progressive type and suffer from incredible fatigue, memory loss, vertigo, optical neuritis, and what seems an endless list of other symptoms. What kind of treatment do you have, what kind of success record does it have, and what would be the cost. I don’t think my insurance will cover it.

  3. My girlfriend has been dealing with, MS, for over 12, years. And now she’s been bed written for over 2 years, is there any thing that can be useful for her situation.

    Thank you,

  4. I would like to come to Cuba to receive stem cell treatment for advanced COPD. Could you send me advice on how I would do that and associated cost. Thank you.

  6. I have MS for 18 months now which is causing severe fatigue, loss of balance limping on both legs and difficulty on remember and/or focusing. I’ll like to get more information on Stem Cells Therapy and any further information that could help me reach out to where I can get treatment.

  8. My son is 24 years old. He was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting MS 8 years ago. During the past 2 years there has been a marked deterioration in his health……. most of it due to damage to the cerebellum. Can you PLEASE give us some options on stem cell therapy that will greatly improve his quality of life?…

    We are from Trinidad and Tobago and will gladly travel to Cuba for treatment.


  9. Myname is Niquel Brown I suffered a gun shot wound through the chest resulting in a T10-T11 complete spinal cord injury can u help me please and if u can u could send me the price please

  10. I have had systemic scleroderma for 20 to 25 years.Total remission with only using minocycline and zithromax as we think it was caused by micoplasma Fermentans and mico.Pneumoniae.Micoplasma feed off our system’s lipids resulting in total lack of sub cutaneous fat leaving severe wrinkles and no padding on the feet.I was a scientist and am very much aware of autologus stem cell transplants so I wonder if you do such procedures in Cuba.I know it can take several weeks to cultivate new cells in a lab but I am most interested in being a test subject as my curiosity has never ended.
    I really must congratulate your medical system for thinking outside the box and having the fortitude to do so withouts much help.
