Stem cells VS chemo resistant metastatic esophageal cancer?

“…chemo resistant metastatic esophageal cancer…”

I was recently contacted by a patient with chemo resistant metastatic esophageal cancer.  This is the 2nd patient in a row with this condition.  The prior one presented with stage 4 esophageal cancer. We had to determine if the cancer is/is not in the bone marrow to assess how much it has metastasized or whether it is localized to the esophagus. In any case, the first patient was treated with the protocol I posted previously and it reduced the cancer cell markers by 40% within 3 weeks. The mesenchymal stem cells recruited NTK (Natural Killer Cells) which reduce the tumors and cancer cell markers. The patient is now 3 months post op (as of 1/26/13) and is doing extremely well. He is at Stage 1 down from Stage 4. He has decided to receive a second treatment and we are hopeful he will retain full remission.

Stem cells for cancer? Yes.

This works because:
“…tumor-oriented homing capacity of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), the application of specific anticancer gene-engineered MSCs has held great potential for cancer therapies. The dual-targeted strategy is based on MSCs’ capacity of tumor-directed migration and incorporation and in situ expression of tumor-specific anticancer genes.”
