GERON’S EMBRYONIC “WASTE OF TIME” CONTINUES…

In ALL ARTICLES on September 21, 2011 at 9:51 pm

Here’s an 867 word article I’d like to not waste your time with.

https://i1.wp.com/www.epiphanymarketing.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/waste-of-time-283x300.jpg

The premise is:  “The study is not meant to determine whether the stem cells can cure or even improve the patients’ condition, but to find out if the treatment itself is safe. Researchers will be monitoring patients over the following months and years to look for side effects, including possible benign tumor growth if the stem cells start to replicate, or adverse immune reactions.”

So let’s not waste your time, I’ll give you the results right now:

EMBRYONIC STEM CELL = ESC

  • SOURCE/DERIVED FROM•comes from embryos
  • PURPOSE IN BODY•split for 7 weeks until you have a fetus the size of a thumbnail
  • OBSTACLES+SIDE EFFECTS•they create cysts and tumors, rejection requires immunosuppressive drugs for the ill patient, they carry the genetic anomalies of the donor, etc
  • TREATMENT HISTORY•can currently treat zero diseases, probably need to cure cancer first to use them

Read it if you want but that’s really “all she wrote.”  Then again, this will allow billions to be pumped into embryonic research for treatments over “the following months and years” despite this fact…

SCREW THE EMBRYOS, THEY’RE IRRELEVANT!

Paralyzed patient in major Geron stem cell study

Erin Allday, Chronicle Staff Writer, Wednesday, September 21, 2011

A Bay Area patient who recently suffered a serious spinal cord injury and is now paralyzed from the waist down joined the world’s first-ever embryonic stem cell study in humans last week, when Stanford doctors injected 2 million cells designed to replace damaged neurons in the patient’s spine.

The patient, who is not being identified, is the fourth person to be enrolled in the clinical trial being run by Menlo Park’s Geron Corp. and the first person in California. The patient, whose participation in the trial was revealed Tuesday, received the stem cell injection Saturday at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center and is now at the rehabilitation center there.

The study is not meant to determine whether the stem cells can cure or even improve the patients’ condition, but to find out if the treatment itself is safe. Researchers will be monitoring patients over the following months and years to look for side effects, including possible benign tumor growth if the stem cells start to replicate, or adverse immune reactions…

  1. These annoymous individuals participating in the study are very brave and I feel we are about to have a breakthrough for SCIs all over the world. I’m very hopeful for the possibilities of healing with embryonic stem cells. God bless these patients and the doctors
