Stay away from Chernobl and 3 Mile Island but be here in the hospital

Radiation Dept Wednesday at 8:30 AM for your cancer treatment.

Something is wrong with this picture!


Radiation XRays create a ton of free radicals and ruin your bone marrow

 where stem cells and red cells are manufactured. This lowers your

blood volume and circulation/oxygenation.


Bad news. Do not do it.


              STEM  CELL  THERAPY


Dr Jörg C Gerlach developed a stem cell skin gun at

McGowan Center Univ of Pittsburgh. Early trials are

 showing impressive results.

                  “Stem Cell Gun“

which looks and acts more like an airbrush than a gun,

 uses a patient’s own stem cells (taken from healthy skin),

 processes them in a solution in the gun, then sprays them

 back on the patient’s skin.

In the small number of patients that have been treated,

the results have been nothing short of miraculous: skin

that might normally take weeks or months to heal rejuvenates

 in days. And to the naked eye, signs of problems

are no longer visible.

Adult and umbilical cord blood stem cell therapy is the wave of the future.

And it does not raise moral issues.


Here are 3 patients who have received treatments based on such research:


Cathy Pell’s daughter was treated with her own cord blood stem cells

 for brain damage suffered during birth. She is improving.


Stephen Sprague was brought under control from leukemia

by a cord blood adult stem cell transplant after being told by doctors

that he would not survive.


Ryan Schneider , a three-year-old, received a cord blood

adult stem cell treatment for cerebral palsy. He is much improved.

Breakthrough allows scientists

to grow stem cells without cloning

By Steve Connor, Science Editor

Scientists have made a major advance in overcoming the principal ethical

objection to the medical use of stem cells derived from human embryos.

 They have generated embryonic stem cells - which might eventually

be used to treat chronically ill patients - from a person's skin, without

 creating or destroying human embryos in the process.


Although the breakthrough is still in its early stages, the researchers

believe they may one day be able to generate embryonic repair cells

for a range of incurable illnesses from Parkinson's and heart disease

to diabetes and spinal injuries.


Professor James Bainbridge

THE blind and partially-sighted have been given new hope

after British scientists got the go-ahead for a trial of a

revolutionary stem cell treatment.

AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration) is caused by

 faulty Retinal Pigment Epithelial (RPE) cells, which

form a supporting carpet under the light-sensitive

rods and cones in the retina.


You can repair damaged retinas with cells derived

from human embryonic stem cells

. This involves simple surgery that soon will become

as routine as cataract operations! Surgeons inject

a small patch of new cells measuring

4x6 mm (millimeters) into the eye.


By injecting replacement RPE cells derived from stem cells

 in the lab, Dr Lyndon Da Cruz of Moorfield Eye Clinic

in London hopes the operation can be reduced to a simple

45-minute procedure under local anesthetic.


The London Project to Control AMD brings together

 scientists from University College London (UCL),

Moorfield Eye Hospital in London and the Univ of Sheffield.


The technique is capable of restoring vision in the

vast majority of patients with Age-related Macular Degeneration

(AMD), a leading cause of blindness among the elderly that

 afflicts 14 million people in Europe.


Experts at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London

will test the therapy within weeks.


They will inject cells derived from human embryonic

 inherited eye condition, Stargardt’s macular dystrophy -

which affects 1 in 10,000, causes gradual loss of central vision.


Professor James Bainbridge, who will be conducting the trials,

said: “There is real potential that people with disorders

including Stargardt disease and Age-related Macular Degeneration

(AMD) might benefit.


“The ability to regenerate retinal cells from stem cells

has been a significant advance and the opportunity

to help translate such technology into new treatments

 is hugely exciting.”


AMD is Britain’s leading cause of sight loss, affecting 500,000.


             STEM  CELL  THERAPY  for 




There is currently no treatment for the 90% with “dry” AMD.


All this has been made possible by a 4 million pound ($8 million)

donation from an anonymous US donor, who the project’s leaders

 say had become frustrated by US curbs on stem cell work.


Embryonic stem cells are the ultimate master cells of the body,

giving rise to all tissues and organs. Their use is controversial

 because many people oppose embryo destruction. Britain has

 encouraged such research.


“If it hasn’t become routine in 10 years it will mean we haven’t

 succeeded,” he told reporters. “It has to be something that’s

available to large numbers of people.”


Similar tests on rats have already proved highly effective.
