A new therapy based on embryonic stem cells will give a new hope to people who did lose their ability to move in some accident. But that’s not all, because this therapy, developed by the Geron Corp., is the demonstration that in USA, since a few days from Obama‘s election, a new course in research – above all in stem cells research – has begun.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) frees the medics to inject spinal stem cells extracted from embryonic tissue in legs paralysed patients since a short time. The treatment in on experimental phase, but

Stem Cells To Help Treat Brain Injury and Hearing Loss

Cord Blood Registry (CBR) is the exclusive partner for a growing number of clinical researchers focusing on the use of a child’s own cord blood stem cells to help treat pediatric brain injury and acquired hearing loss. To ensure consistency in cord blood stem cell processing, storage and release for infusion, three separate trials have included CBR in their FDA-authorized protocol—including two at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) working in partnership with Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, and a third at Georgia Health Sciences University, home of the Medical College of Georgia (MCG). This makes
