Bright Future Using Placenta Stem Cell Treatments

With the passing of legislation that will allow federal funding for newer cells that are easier to work with, represent more diversity, and have no mouse feeder cells to contend with, no doubt, science is closer than ever to a breakthrough for many cures.

The younger the stem cells are, the more flexibility they have. After 40 years in the lab, the more mature, differentiated adult stem cells have demonstrated safety and efficacy in all three phases of clinical trials and are considered as “standard therapy” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) treatments for nine conditions. These are: Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, Aplastic Anemia, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia, Multiple Myeloma, Myelodysplasia, Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Syndrome-X1, and Thalassemia Major.

For the past twenty-five years, US residents have gone out of the country to receive placental stem cell treatment for ALS, cancer, cerebral palsy, dermatomyositis, diabetes, gangrene, hepatitis C, HIV, immune deficiency, multiple sclerosis, migraines, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's, retinitis pigmentosa, rheumatoid arthritis, spina bifida, and stroke. While placental stem cell therapy has not been approved for use in the U.S., it is benefiting people who are physically and financially able to travel to Mexico.

Now, just imagine what illnesses could be cured or treated with blastocystic stem cell research once these cells have the same funding and years of research as the adult stem cells! It’s an exciting time to be a scientist!

There is a group of physicians, patients and other interested people working together to get treatment with adult stem cells legalized in the U.S. as it should be. Please ask your family and friends to sign up ("JOIN"), and get as many doctors to sign up as well. Please see The American Stem Cell Therapy Association site
