    Intathecal Delivery of Your Stem Cells Available

    A paraplegic friend told me about a recent announcement from the Repair Stem Cell Institute in FLA where they now offer more affordable, possibly more effective stem cell treatments using intrathecal delivery and I wondered if anybody had comments or info on this. I emailed them about my incomplete sci problem with spasticity just yesterday, but haven't heard back yet. Here's part of their announcement:

    It?s a procedure in which the patient?s own stem cells are given to him/her, both intravenously and through the spinal canal (intrathecally) to maximize results and minimize the time that you have to spend at the clinic. All in all, the treatment takes less than four hours

    Stem cell treatments are becoming more and more available all over North America for an average price of about $9000. However, almost all of these treatments use only a single intravenous implantation of the patient?s stem cells. Using the intrathecal treatment allows the stem cells to circulate around the spinal cord and brain, giving SCI patients the best chance for improvement.

    Contact RSCI for more information:

One woman with an incomplete thoractic injury who I spoke to on the phone said her pain levels went way down, and her abdominal strength increased. Another man I spoke to, had MS and told me he definitely felt better and had less fatigue. No one Ive spoke to said it was a cure all. No one I've spoken to regrets having it done, it could help.

    Check out Richard M Cohens 1st stem cell treatment at the Tisch Center in NYC. The science is moving on. Trials in humans are happening now

    Cohen has had MS for 30 years. It takes balls to do what he's doing, no promises, no guarantees but he's doing it.

    There getting very close to finding a possible cure for MS.

    Embryonic stem cells were successfully used to treat multiple sclerosis in mice.

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disease where the body accidentally damages neurons and affects the communication between the brain, spinal cord, and other areas of the body. Severe cases of MS result in paralysis or the inability to speak. The incurable disease affects over 2.3 million people worldwide.
    Robert Lanza and his team of scientists replicated the first experiment that cloned human embryos capable of producing embryonic stem cells using DNA taken from infants. A month and a half after that, Lanza and his team reported that human embryonic stem cells might have the ability to treat multiple sclerosis in humans after successful trials on mice.
    The researchers took cells from frozen human embryos and transformed them into an immature cell called a mesenchymal stem cell. This type of cell could potentially help treat multiple sclerosis after the researchers found that they appeared to travel to the damaged tissues in mice and helped mitigate the immune system response that affected the neurons' health.
    "Untreated mice were suffering. They are paralyzed. They on their backs. They are dragging their limbs. They are in really sad shape. Treated animals, they are walking and jumping around just like normal mice," said Dr. Lanza in this NBC News article.
    The study, "Human ESC-Derived MSCs Outperform Bone Marrow MSCs in the Treatment of an EAE Model of Multiple Sclerosis," was published by the International Society for Stem Cell Research in the journal Stem Cell Reports on Thursday.
    The new stem cells helped reduce the symptoms of the MS-like disease in the mice and also prevented further damage to the brain's nerve cells. Such testing on humans is many months away Lanza said, but he believes if all goes as planned, human embryonic stem cells will be able to match any patient with the disease and they will not need to use controversial cloning technology that puts the political world up in arms.

    Repair Stem Cells Institute is a patient's advocacy group of a decade plus standing and you can freely ask questions and get helpful recommendations for RSCI-approved stem cell treatment. They want to approve of centers in Midwest and California too. I already sent in my request form and am under no obligation to take their advice. It's founded and directed by former Philly man now humanitarian Don Margolis. Go to repairstemcells.org if interested...Jan

    Thanks for your post FellowHawkeye. Do you know if adult stem cells could improve dead brain tissue in the prefrontal cortex of a persons brain? I am new to stem cells and not sure what it would take to improve what I have. How would the injected cells find the damaged area. I am not clear on what exactly adult stem cells do?
    Thanks,
    SOG

    Hi Fellow Hawkeye,
    For some people stem cells are really expensive. Do you know what their prices are like by any chance? I am also still not familiar with standard stem cell protocols. How many stem cells in an injection? How many injections in a month? How many months do you have to wait to get more ?
    Thanks so much,
    SOG

    I think you would be better off contacting the center itself to get those type of questions answered
