DIABETES CLINICAL TRIALS

  • FIRST USE OF CORD BLOOD TO ALTER COURSE OF TYPE 1 DIABETES, June 25, 2007 – (I’ll bet nobody heard of this one!)transfusion of stored, autologous (i.e. the person’s own), umbilical cord blood into a group of children newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes appears to have reduced their disease severity, possibly re-setting the immune system and slowing the destruction of their insulin-producing cells, according to a report presented today at the American Diabetes Association’s 67th Annual Scientific Sessions. –http://parentsguidecordblood.org/content/media/m_pdf/ADA_T1D_PR-06-25-07.pdf(The ADA in 2007 knew stem cells can treat Diabetes type 1 in children!)

  • Why no diabetes clinical trial s in the US when mice were cured of diabetes type 1 in the 1990’s? -  Weissman, a professor of pathology and developmental biology at Stanford University, states: “Stem cells are rare, self-renewing, and can regenerate body tissues.” He repeatedly expressed frustration that while many of his discoveries seemed to hold remarkable potential for life-saving treatments, commercial or regulatory hurdles have prevented his scientific research from benefiting human beings. One example is, his mid-’90s research on type I diabetes, in which he demonstrated the ability to fully cure type I diabetes in mice using stem cells. Even though the experiments avoided political controversy by using adult/repair stem cells, which do not come from embryos, Weissman ran into a road block when pharmaceutical companies refused to sponsor clinical trials. The therapy went nowhere. “The pharmaceutical companies had put profit over principle, preferring to keep diabetes sufferers dependent on costly insulin than to cure them once and for all.” – http://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/09/13/research-from-90s-cures-type-1-diabetes/

APATHY, IGNORANCE OR BLINDNESS?

In CELEBRITIES & STEM CELLS on October 6, 2011 at 1:27 am

I posted this on Montel William’s Facebook page:

“I just received 13 pages of new Stem Cell Treatments for MS info. There is editing and translation and I am trying to get fully substantiated results for these treatments…if you are interested in reviewing the info.”

http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2008/specials/fall_tv/blog/080211/montel_williams_240x320.jpg

SO SAD!: 

It was removed within 10 seconds of my posting it on Montel’s page.  Why would they not want to know about new treatments?  Don’t they have a responsibility as leaders of social media to share new treatment info with their followers?

It’s really a damn shame.  Christopher Reeves died chasing embryonic stem cells while adult stem cells have given the ability to walk to paraplegics.  Michael J Fox chases embryonic stem cells while adult stem cells have 60-70% success treating Parkinson’s disease.  The brilliant visionary Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer never knowing about a number of successful cancer treatments.  The blind can now see.  Diabetics are off insulin.  Heart transplant patients play tennis with their own heart healed.

It’s time people!!  If you know any leaders in media, corporate or politics; please refer them to me and I will personally explain to them why so many people do not have to die today.

More evidence links diabetes, Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s Improvements with stem cell treatment

NEW YORK | Fri Apr 15, 2011 9:29am EDT

(Reuters) – People with diabetes may be more likely to also develop Parkinson’s disease – and this seems particularly true for younger patients, a new study suggests.

The findings, published online by the journal Diabetes Care, add to evidence linking diabetes and Parkinson’s. One recent report said that U.S. adults with diabetes had a slightly higher risk of developing Parkinson’s over a 15-year period, compared to nondiabetics.

Neither study, however, proves that diabetes itself causes Parkinson’s.

Instead, researchers think it’s more likely that the two disorders share some common underlying causes.

The new findings are from Denmark, where researchers compared close to 2,000 adults with Parkinson’s disease and nearly 10,000 people the same age but without the disease (the “control” group).

Overall, 6.5 percent of the Parkinson’s patients had diabetes for at least 2 years before they were diagnosed with the movement disorder. By comparison, just 5 percent of people in the control group had diabetes for at least 2 years.

Overall, the study found, having diabetes was linked to a roughly one-third higher risk of developing Parkinson’s. That was after the researchers accounted for participants’ age and sex, and any diagnoses of emphysema – which was considered a proxy for heavy smoking. (Studies have found cigarette smokers to be at lower risk of Parkinson’s, for reasons that are not clear.)

In particular, diabetes was related to a higher risk of developing Parkinson’s before the age of 60 — which is about the average age at diagnosis.

Exactly what the findings mean is unclear, according to the researchers, who were led by Dr. Eva Schernhammer of Harvard Medical School in Boston.

But they say that for now, the “most plausible” explanation would be that diabetes and Parkinson’s have some of the same biological underpinnings.

One possibility is continuous low-level inflammation throughout the body, which is suspected of contributing to a number of chronic diseases by damaging cells. There might also be a common genetic susceptibility.

However, even if people with diabetes have a relatively bigger risk of Parkinson’s, that does not mean it is a high risk. For example, the recent U.S. study that tracked patients for 15 years involved nearly 289,000 older adults. The proportion of people who eventually developed Parkinson’s disease was 0.8 percent among diabetics and 0.5 percent among nondiabetics – less than 1 percent in either case.

The researchers on that study said that people with diabetes should simply continue to do the things already recommended for their overall health — eating a well-balanced diet and getting regular exercise.

More studies are needed, they said, to understand why diabetes is related to a higher Parkinson’s risk, and what, if anything, can be done about it.

Diabetes arises when the body can no longer properly use the blood-sugar-regulating hormone insulin. Parkinson’s occurs when movement-regulating cells in the brain die off or become disabled, leading to symptoms like tremors, rigidity in the joints, slowed movement and balance problems.

Researchers say it’s possible that something about diabetes — like a problem regulating insulin — might somehow contribute to Parkinson’s. But that remains unproven.

About Stem Cell Treatment for Diabetes

Traditionally diabetics administer insulin injections in an attempt to replace the function of the pancreas. Studies show there is a new alternative for diabetes treatment by use of stem cells. The use of stem cells can stop the progression of diabetes, and in some cases, eliminate the need for insulin injections.

http://repairstemcell.files.wordpress.com/2009/08/asc_dia-type-1.jpg?w=331&h=248

  1. What is Type 1 Diabetes?
    • Type 1 diabetes, or juvenile diabetes, occurs when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the insulin producing cells in the pancreas. Without insulin, the body’s cells cannot absorb glucose. This leaves the glucose in the bloodstream. High blood glucose levels can cause organ deterioration, ketoacidosis, coma and even death.

    What are Stem Cells?
    • Stem cells can convert themselves to special cells like insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas. They also have the ability to repair organs and tissues of the body by dividing themselves without limit. They can be extracted from bone marrow, muscle and the brain. These are called adult stem cells. The cells taken from these areas are able to generate replacements. This is a phenomenal step toward treating diseases like diabetes.

    Objective
    • The objective of diabetic stem cell treatment is to stop the immune system from attacking the beta cells of the pancreas. It is not possible to reverse diabetes with this method or any other method. The stem cell treatment can only stop the degeneration of the pancreas. Because of this, long-term diabetics will not benefit from this treatment. The best candidates for diabetic stem cell treatment are newly diagnosed patients. These diabetics still have a pancreas that can be saved.

    Diabetes Stem Cell Treatment Study
    • Fifteen diabetic patients with ages ranging from 14 to 31 were part of a stem cell treatment study in Brazil. These patients were given drugs and hormones to move their stem cells from the bone marrow to the bloodstream. Doctors used a device to remove the cells from the bloodstream. After two weeks, the patients received chemotherapy to destroy their current immune system over the course of five days. The patients rested for a day, and then were administered their own stem cells for 12 days. This created a new immune system that would not attack their pancreas.

    • To review more studies like this: http://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/diabetes-stem-cells/
    Results of Brazil study
    • The results of this treatment enabled 12 patients to stop taking insulin right away. Over the course of 18 months, two patients have not needed insulin injections. Five patients have been insulin-free for 23 months. One patient received no effect from the treatment. Doctors determined the patient’s diabetes progressed too far. According to Dr. Jay Skyler, with the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, even if insulin shots are still needed, the treatment is a success if it saves beta cells from being destroyed.

OPTIC NERVE HYPOPLASIA, SEPTO-OPTIC DYSPLASIA, MACULAR DEGENERATION and OPTIC CHEMICAL BURNS

In VICTORIES & SUCCESS STORIES on February 11, 2011 at 9:41 am

Until she was 15, Morse had 20/4,000 vision in one eye and only light perception in the other due to optic nerve hypoplasia, or an underdevelopment of the nerve that transmits vision signals from the eye to the brain. She could make out human figures but not see details, could only read if the paper was within inches of her eye, and could only watch TV standing with her nose pressed to the glass…

After raising $15,000 from community donations, the mother and daughter set out for China on July 4…

She received spinal injections of cord blood stem cells each week for six weeks. After her third treatment, she realized she could read and knew the treatments were working…

More info on OPTIC NERVE HYPOPLASIA, SEPTO-OPTIC DYSPLASIA, MACULAR DEGENERATION and OPTIC CHEMICAL BURNS:

Treatment with adult stem cells, due to the amazing transformation from blindness to sight, are some of the most powerful success stories in adult stem cell treatments.

·         Macie Morse from Colorado before stem cells had 20/4000 vision in one eye and in the other eye she only had “light perception,” she could only make out light.  Also, she could only watch TV with her nose pressed against the glass. After treatment she had 20/80 vision in one eye and the other is 20/400+.  She is now driving her family’s van and enjoying her new driving permit. http://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/02/16/stem-cells-optic-nerve-hypoplasia-victory/

·         Jakob Bielski from Canada received stem cell treatment because he couldn’t see at all and had no response to light.  After the Cord Blood Stem Cells Were Implanted he has some vision, can respond to visual information and responds to light.

·         Dakota Clarke’s mother said “It’s been worth every single penny to see the changes in her.”

·         Coby Fend’s mother said ““We are talking about going back — we’d almost be crazy not to, because right now it’s the best thing going in the entire world.”

·         Connor Corkern’s mother said: “He’s doing great. He is doing wonderful. It’s like we’ve got a totally new baby.”

·         Cameron Petersen’s Grandma said: “There was nothing for Cameron before this treatment. Now, his world is limitless.”

·         Lydia Black’s father said: “the treatment is already having a huge effect on her life, and he is glad that she was able to receive stem cell treatment…”

·         Savannah Watring’s mother said: “She said hello to herself in an elevator (after seeing her reflection). It blew everyone away. We weren’t expecting that.”

·         Xavier Carballo’s ophthalmologist, Dr. Jack Guggino of Tampa, said he did a baseline exam on the boy before the trip to China and after his return. Before the treatment Xavier could only detect hand motion at 1 to 2 feet, and after the treatment he could count fingers at 3 to 4 feet.  “As far as Xavier is concerned, there has been definite and measurable improvement, neurologically and ophthalmologically,” Guggino said.

·         Lawrence Brown III looks at the number “10” on a family laptop and tells his mother Georgina Brown what the number is as part of a daily exercise to see if his sight is improving. For most people, it is insignificant.  But for Lawrence, 16, who has been blind since birth, it was an exceptional moment.“They call it a really good placebo effect,” Lawrence said. “Whatever, if it’s a placebo effect, I want some more.” http://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/08/09/stem-cell-therapy-shows-results-el-paso-times/

·         Blind Man Can See Again After Stem Cell Therapy – A man blinded after having ammonia squirted in his eye is now able to see again thanks to adult stem cells taken from his own body.  Russell Turnbull, 38, from England had therapy using stem cells taken from his other eye in a research study in London.

·         A study in the New England Journal of Medicine on 112 patients with corneal damage from chemical burns whom received treatment.  After adult stem cell treatment, a permanent restoration of a transparent, renewing corneal epithelium was attained in 76.6% of eyes. The restored eyes remained stable over time, with up to 10 years of follow-up (mean, 2.91±1.99; median, 1.93).  http://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2010/06/24/chemically-burned-eyes-repaired-with-stem-cells/

VIDEO: Meet Sam, a visual artist who was confronted with the one thing a man in his profession fears most: Compromised vision. In his case his ability to see clearly was being undermined by age-related macular degeneration (AMD.) His Doctor harvests and uses a patient’s own stem cell-rich bone marrow to help effect healing. Sam discerned improvements in his vision within the first ten days following his treatment and siz weeks later the vision in his left eye had improved while that in his right eye was now normal.
