    Cuba Carries Out First Stem Cell Transplant

    Havana, June 29 (acn) Cuba carried out for the first time a central nervous system stem cell transplant in a fully paraplegic 32-year patient, who is satisfactorily recovering just three months after having undergone surgery.

    In statements to acn news agency, neurosurgeon at the Cira Garcia Hospital, Dr. Amado Delgado Gómez, said the patient is already recovering leg movement and can walk assisted by a mechanical device known as ortesis.

    Dr. Delgado, who has a master degree in spinal surgery, pointed out that this innovative technique, imported from first-world countries, stimulates the growing of new tissue. As a result, the patient recovers his motor functions after several months of rehabilitation.

    The Cuban expert said that some of the illnesses which could be treated with stem cells transplants are Parkinson Disease, cranial disorders, congenital malformations, Alzheimer Disease, multiple sclerosis and other conditions under study, such as the hereditary ataxia.

    The first central nervous system stem cell transplant was carried out five years ago in Massachusetts, the United States. This complex surgical operation is internationally valued at 20.000 dollars.

    How can such a claim be made on a clinical trial of one? Degree of "recovers motor function" based on what pre-treatment neurological assessment?

    Much more information is needed.
