If so, what were the results. Where did you go to get them treated?

Stem cell therapy, despite it's acclaims, remains only mildly successful and extremely expensive. The prep for it meant total body radiation and intense chemo. It's Pure Hell. My daughter's medical bills reached $1,000,000 in six months for bone marrow stem cells and the cancer returned with a vengeance. They wanted to do it again!! Both the health insurance and I said NO.

Read the history of Polio. President Franklin Roosevelt (a polio victim) hired Jonas Salk to develop a vaccine. Salk never made a nickel on it, refused to get a patent, and stopped the epidemic cold. Now that's a HERO.

FDA and big pharma are evil. I believe that they suppress knowledge of cures that would help esp. Alzheimers and Cancer. Too much money involved for them.

It's my understanding that stem cell use in research allows them to grow human nerve cells in a lab that mimic human brain cells. This is by far better than testing on rats. Often times, things that work on rats don't work on humans. This makes me wonder if it goes the other way as well, where it didn't work on a rat but it may have worked on a human, hmm. Using human cells derived from stem cells will help improve this testing.

I'd be very interested in any research and application of stem cells. This is an area of medicine that has not been forthcoming. I doubt that they can do anything for Alzheimers, but some promising results are coming in for cochlear -damaged patients in Boston and Duke University Hospital. This will be a boon for the deaf seeking an alternative to cochlear implants.

Keep us informed. I would try anything to help my wife. An Alzheimer sufferer does not have a good life.

At this time, nothing has been approved by the FDA, and I have not yet heard of any clinical trials. There is a trial my husband participated in trying to get FDA approval in the USA for Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TSM), and it works for depression (see Beth Israel hospital), so wait for the results in Dec.

Why would they publish anything. It seems everything about this treatment for a lot of ailments has put put in the hush hush mode. probably by al the drug companies. I this this is why the trial for the ddrug to beat Alz, Pd and dementia is on hold. FDA has someone in their pocket.

Go to clinicaltrials.gov and try to find a clinical trial near you. Last I heard Emory University in Atlanta was doing one.
