Thread: Paraplegic move legs after stem cell procedure- Brazilian Center of Cell Theraphy

  1. #191
    Parties involved in this research are: the San Rafael Hospital (attached to a Italian foundation) and Fiocruz. Fiocruz is a government institution where vaccines and medicines are produced, and where tropical diseases are studied. In contrary what was said here and where I know, the USP (Universidade de São Paulo) is not envolved in this research.

    Curiously, yesterday the TV said that researchers from Fiocruz, while they were researching the protozoan (Trypanosoma cruzi) that causes Chagas disease, a very serious chronic illness, they observed an interesting "side effect" in the rats used in research, ie, 100% of these mice did not develop diabetes type 1, even those genetically programmed to show the disease, or after receive drugs that usually triggers diabetes in rats.

    Marcus what happened? No news given by you and end of december is there. Have they not much convincing data to give? Why so much delay when they have used adult cells not the neural or embryonic.

    Note: the first part of the text (not translated) talk about cell therapy to be applied in bones,

    "Studies to return the body movements advance in other parts of the country. A center conducts research in Salvador that do not promise a cure, but the results of a first test already showed that it is possible to improve the condition of life of patients without mobility.

    "I was not born in the wheelchair. I had an accident and I'm in a wheelchair, and seek an improvement, "said Mauricio.

    In 2011, Mauricio went through a stem cell transplant as a volunteer. When there is a severe trauma in the column, the impulses sent by the brain can not get to the muscles, and body movement is compromised. The injection of stem cells taken from the patient's bone marrow, want to return movements.

    "Nothing from the waist down. Nothing. Today I feel everything, even the feet. Identify heat, cold identify. It won "celebrates Mauricio.

    Other patients also had gains with the test. Rejane has regained feeling in his back before being discharged. That is progress every day.

    "Stem cell therapy is one that is beginning, but we're still looking for the best cell, how many times this cell must be injected into the patient, and how long it will take effect," says Ricardo Ribeiro dos Santos, research coordinator.

    The beginning of a long journey that has already shown results. Mauricio can walk with the aid of a walker, but only during physical therapy."

    Thanks Marcus for digging up some more information.
    It would be nice to hear how the first patient is doing now. If he has had more gains since the original post.
