He also announced that his intentions have materialized in an agreement with the Governor of California, who, although a Republican,
Stem Cell Research Trial for Congestive Heart Failure
Look what we have here- another stem cell research trial for heart disease (congestive heart failure) and another heart patient has his life improved. This time, at the University of Louisville, the first heart failure patient treated with his own Adult Stem Cells has improved already, […]
For nearly three years, Sundar (26) was waiting to be told that he could to regain control of his bladder and move around.
