Spinal Cord Injury Patient Give an Account of His Improvement and Returned Capabilities After Stem Cell Treatment in 2008 (Vide

Posted May 05 2011 3:52pm

This is a raw video of the patient talking about his progress with receiving stem cell treatments and he chronicles it each step and year.  Yesterday if you saw the news the CIRM announced funding for the Geron clinical trials, which are just that, stem cell spinal treatments.  In California a few years ago, stem cell funds were approved by voters and the state has been a leader in the development of all types of treatments.  This interesting as his initial treatment began back in 2008 and now he can drive again (standard transmission car) and has recovered many other neurological functions in his legs.  BD 

“The FDA-approved, phase-1 trial is meant to test only the safety of the cells, which can develop into neural support cells called image oligodendrocytes found in the brain and central nervous system. If the investigational treatment is shown to be safe for use in humans, larger clinical trials will be designed to test whether the cells are better able than conventional treatments to improve a patient’s condition.”
