NEW YORK & PETACH TIKVAH, Israel – (Business Wire) BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics Inc. (OTCBB:BCLI), a leading developer of adult stem cell (ASC) technology, announced today that the company has retained the services of Bio Medical Research Design (BRD) headed by Dr. Moshe Neuman to consult BrainStorm’s regulatory team in its preparations for clinical trials of ALS patients in Israel.

BrainStorm previously announced its plan to proceed to clinical trials for ALS disease in Israel and therefore engaged BRD to assist with the various final pre-clinical studies and stem cells production process that will help fulfill the relevant regulatory requirements…

International Center for Cell Therapy & Cancer (ICTC)

International Center for Cell Therapy & Cancer (ICTC)

If you have cancer or one of the conditions on this list, please  send your diagnoses to Dr Slavin at The Center for Cellular Therapy & Cancer Immunotherapy in Tel Aviv immediately for consideration for treatment!

slavinmd@gmail.com

LIST OF DISEASES & CONDITIONS TREATED:

* Solid tumors: cancer [best to be notified as soon as diagnosis is made so we can cryopreserve tumor cells and make the treatment plan to begin when tumor burden is low;
* Hematological malignancies [acute & chronic leukemia; Hodgkin’s & non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma; myelodysplastic syndrome; multiple myeloma
* Genetic diseases: severe beta thalassemia major; sickle cell anemia; Gaucher’s disease; Hurler’s syndrome etc.
* Deficiency syndromes: severe aplastic anemia; Fanconi’s anemia; severe combined immune deficiency (SCID); infantile osteopetrosis;etc.
* Autoimmune diseases: rheumatoid arthritis; systemic lupus erythematosus; psoriatic arthritis; multiple sclerosis; inflammatory bowel diseases [Crohn’s disease; ulcerative colitis]; etc.
* Regenerative medicine: peripheral nerve injuries; spinal cord injury (SCI); brachial plexus injury; repair of cartilage disorders in the knees; peripheral vascular disease; reconstruction administered healing of complex bone fractures; and more in the near future..
* Any disease treatable by autologous or allogeneic stem cell transplantation from any source [bone marrow; blood stem cells; cord blood stem cells] including especially haploidentically mismatched stem cells from family member (child to parent or parent to child, or any half-matched family member) or matched unrelated donor.

Prof. Shimon Slavin, MD, is the former longtime bone marrow transplantation wizard and stem cell research guru at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem.  He retired from that position recently to create the International Center for Cell Therapy & Cancer Immunotherapy [CTCI].  Dr Slavin knows that terminal patients are not willing to wait until embryonic stem cells are available for implanting into humans.

Some patients with cancer, multiple sclerosis and other diseases are already beginning to benefit from using repair stem cells from relatives who were only partial matches or that were taken from the patients themselves (autologous) before chemotherapy destroyed their immune systems.

Dr Slavin has treated patients with diseases thought to be incurable who have been disease-free for up to 20 years and his techniques can also benefit organ transplant patients.

RSCI is proud to have the world’s #1 cellular therapist as a member of thier Science Advisory Board and a highly recommended treating doctor.  22 years ago Dr Slavin declared at a cancer conference that cellular therapy was the future of cancer treatment.  Today, his prophetic words are a reality nand he is lauded for his accomplishments.  In 2001 he made medical history by making it possible to remove a doomed 3 year old “Bubble Baby” from her bubble using cellular therapy and he continues to perform miraculous medical feats every month in his new facility.

Dr Slavin has had dozens of publications related to his groundbreaking therapies.  Here are just a few:

* Adult Stem Cell Transplantation
* Cancer Immunotherapy
* More on Cancer Immunotherapy

AUTISM & A MOTHER’S ORDEAL post consists of

AUTISM AWARENESS

AUTISM AWARENESS

The following are paraphrased excerpts from a conversation with a woman who is desperately trying to find treatments for her son who has Autism. All she has received in response to her inquiries to date…is abuse.

“My husband and I are trying to raise money to send our son, Niko for Adult stem cell treatment.  Wow, we are finding it is like running on sand and people are so cruel.  Our son is Autistic.  I wish people were more educated on the subject before they crucified us!  Does anyone have any suggestions to take it to the next level?  We would love your opinion!  Anything that will help would be welcome!”

I introduced her to the Repair Stem Cell Institute which is a patient advocate education center that connects patients with adult stem cell treatment centers around the world.  They know of a treatment center which both treats AUTISM and also meets the standards of the Repair Stem Cell Institute: http://www.repairstemcells.org/TreatmentDetail.php?keyword=AUTISM

http://repairstemcells.org

Her response is indicative of what I believe a lot of people are going through right now when they are looking for new treatments to old diseases.

“I will look into this, Thank you! Your email is the first kind email we have received! Thank you for the links! I will join the repair stem cell group right away. We are not going to give up! We have no other option but to fight on! We had to stop the email responses on Niko’s blog, they were just too much for me to handle. Looking forward to keeping in touch with you! Blessings!”

Why are people so resistant to the benefits of RSC?  I find it terribly sad that in all of her research and correspondence, my email was the first kind one she received.  I can only imagine the ordeal of being a struggling parent seeking help for a sick child met on all sides by both adamant opponents of embryonic stem cells and adamant opponents of repair stem cells.  The world must seem a very cruel and cold place.

I wish the best for Niko and his parents.  I hope my recommendations are helpful to them and they are able to gain the relief from the symptoms of Niko’s Autism that they are striving so hard to find.

All my best-

David

A STEM CELL… INSURANCE MIRACLE?

In ALL ARTICLES, STEM CELLS IN THE NEWS, VICTORIES & SUCCESS STORIES on February 9, 2009 at 12:36 am

A 3 year old boy is getting a repair stem cell transplant!

This is not an historic medical event…this barely registers as news.  Doctors have been using repair stem cells in order to prepare patient’s bodies for the ravages of high-dose chemotherapy for decades.

What is a miracle is that an insurance company is actually willing to pay for SOME of it!

A STEM CELL....INSURANCE MIRACLE?

Feb 8 2009 1:40PM -KXNewsTeam -AP-SDInsurance Stalemate,0160

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) A 3-year-old South Dakota boy whose brain tumor treatment had been in question because of an insurance dispute is to begin chemotherapy in Minnesota on Tuesday.

Cooper Urbaniak (ur-BAN’-ee-ak) is to be admitted to the University of Minnesota Medical Center to begin high-dose chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant.

The family’s insurance provider initially declared the procedure experimental and refused to pay for it. But under an agreement reached last month between Sanford Health Plan and the university, Sanford will pay for the chemotherapy and pay a discounted rate on the stem cell transplant.

The boy’s father, Joe Urbaniak, says his son will undergo eight days of chemotherapy treatments followed by a day of rest. Doctors then will give him back the stem cells they harvested earlier this fall.

The family is from Hereford, which is near Sturgis in western South Dakota.
