by Tom Conn | Posted on Monday, July 7th, 2014

Argentine international winger, Angel Di Maria suffered a torn right hamstring in Friday’s 1-0 win over Belgium and despite being ruled out of action for the remainder of the tournament, Di Maria Is undergoing stem-cell treatment in hopes of making the 2014 World Cup final next weekend.

According to Spanish sports daily, AS, Di Maria is so determined to join his teammates, should they reach the World Cup final, that he has decided to undergo stem cell treatment, similar to that used by Diego Costa ahead of the Champions League final, in order to fight for football’s grandest prize.

The medical procedure is used to regenerate damaged cells using the patient’s own healthy cells, with the primary object being to reduce inflammation and repair the torn muscle tissue.

In addition to the treatment, Di Maria will also undergo the standard treatment for this injury; ice, kinesiology, electro pulse stimulation and some rehabilitation exercises in the swimming pool.

Stem Cell Breakthrough Helps 85% Of Type 2 Diabetes Patients

Article Date: 07 Feb 2006 – 4:00 PST

A study carried out in Argentina by a team of researchers from a Not-For-Profit Organization called ‘Don Roberto Fernandez Vina Foundation’ (San Nicolas- Buenos Aires, Argentina) demonstrated that stem cells implanted into type 2 diabetes patients, in direct form into the pancreas, improve the production of Endogenous Insulin, increase the levels of “C Peptide”, decrease blood glucose levels and glycated hemoglobin levels faster than other treatments. 84% of the patients that had received the autologuous bone marrow cells could also abandon the drugs that stimulate insulin production or the insulin that they had been receiving previously.

There were no complications at all, demonstrating the safety of the technique, since the extraction, the cellular implants and evolution of the patients…

I have a category entitled CATCH UP!  This article is what I am talking about.  You may be confused when you read it because while Dr Vina is implanting stem cells into the pancreas of diabetic patient and even developed the procedure…it is “fairly” common today.  Point is, check the date for when he was doing it.  Feb 2005!!  SO when I say “CATCH UP!” I mean that everyone else in the world should CATCH UP with guys like Dr Vina.  Well done Dr V!  –  DG

Stem cells implanted into pancreas of diabetic patient through an artery, Argentina – Feb 2005

Main Category: Diabetes -Article Date: 09 Feb 2005 – 10:00 PST

On January 5th, stem cells were implanted in the pancreas of a diabetic patient through a small artery that irrigates this organ – this is the first time this has ever happened anywhere in the world.

The procedure was carried out by a Team of Interventional Cardiologists from the Clinica San Nicol�s, Buenos Aires, Argentina and the Don Roberto Fern�ndez Vina Foundation. Team leaders were Drs Roberto Fern�ndez Vina, Oberdan Andrin and Francisco Vrsalovic.

The procedure was designed by Dr. Roberto Fernandez Vina.

The objective was to implant selectively some stem cells (obtained from the patient’s bone marrow) in the Pancreas, where the Beta Cells are located – hoping to regenerate the insulin producing capacity of the pancreas.

The patient was awake throughout the whole operation. The stem cells were fed through the femoral artery. Within 24 hours the patient was discharged (allowed to go home).

This is a press release from the Fundaci�n Don Roberto Fern�ndez Vi�a, Argentina
