Adult Stem Cells Improve Young Boy with Cerebral Palsy

Corey de Gregorio, a 3 year old boy from Gordonvale, Australia has improved tremendously after going to a Stem Cell research company which implanted Adult Stem Cells from cord blood into him.

Corey’s parents, Mark and Roseanne had doubts before going to China for the stem cell treatment, but they  wanted Corey to have every chance to live a better life and therefore, they made the journey to China for the stem cell therapy which used only Adult Stem Cells.

The miracle treatment consisted of six “therapies” of cord blood stem cells.

Before the Adult Stem Cells for Cerebral Palsy

  • Had very little use of his left arm/hand
  • Little movement in his torso

After the Stem Cell Treatment

  • Can now use his left hand, can use it to drink a cup by himself
  • Increased flexibility in torso

Amazed by the Stem Cell Research

According to the stem cell article:
More than six months after the stem cell treatment, Mr de Gregorio said the family was amazed at the improvements in his torso and his left arm.

Corey de Gregorio is not the only Aussie to go abroad for stem cell research using Adult Stem Cells. Last month, I featured Sierra Rose Hill, another young toddler from Australia who went to Germany for a successful stem cell treatment for her Cerebral Palsy as well.

Adult Stem Cells do seem to work well for Cerebral Palsy as I have posted many stories about children going to Duke University for stem cell research where they were treated with their own cord blood stem cells.

I am happy for Corey de Gregorio and a special kudos for his parents for taking an educated “risk” and going to China for stem cell treatment where hundreds of others have been helped as well.   It paid off for them.


  1. […] May 8, 2009 Where do I start? Today as I was searching on google, I came across something so spectacular that I cannot even begin to express how I feel at this moment. During my illness I was so scarred (emotionally and physicsally), and I wished that I didn’t have to go under the knife. Unfortunately during my time that was the answer, go under the knife or die. Now, there’s hope that everything will be just fine. Stem Cell has come a long way and I truly hope that one day we have the answers to every disease! Here’s the link to the website that I was reading earlier, https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/04/29/stem-cell-research-a-miracle-for-aussie-toddler-with-… […]

  2. So happy for the little boy! This totally made my day!
