“Stem Cell Awareness Seminar”

August 28,2010 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Free Admission – open to the public


Learn the Truth regarding the differences between embryonic and adult stem cell treatments. Doctors, patients and others will share their knowledge and experiences with you and answer any questions you may have on stem cells.

Regenerative stem cell therapies for diseases, disorders and injuries will be discussed: ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, Ataxia, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Diabetes, Heart disease, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, ONH & optic disorders, Parkinson’s disease, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke patients have shown significant improvements after treatment.

Several doctors will speak about the progress they have noted in their patients. They will share information with you both pre and post stem cell therapies. You will also hear from several stem cell patients who will share their personal experiences and views of this regenerative therapy. You can also read documented case studies of adult stem cell patients.

David Granovsky, author of “The Stem Cell Blog” and the 1st children’s book on stem cells  “Super Stemmys Doris and the Super Cells” will begin the discussions.

We look forward to meeting you!

Reflecting On A Decade Of Stem Cell Research

By Joe Palca, NPR – December 28, 2009

Some say they hold the potential for medical miracles. Others claim they are a moral abomination. Either way, human embryonic stem cells captured headlines during the past decade in a way few areas of scientific research have before…

via Reflecting On A Decade Of Stem Cell Research | KPBS.org.

The focus of this article is all wrong.  While Embryonic Stem Cells may have potential for unknown results from research 20-50 years in future (as established by some of the top embryonic, stem cell and cloning researchers…and the director of NIH)…in fact, researchers still haven’t even mitigated the basic scientific problems inherent in the utilization of Embryonic Stem Cells in treatments…mainly tumors and rejection.

Meanwhile, around the world, the potential for treatment has ALREADY BEEN REALIZED in Adult or Repair Stem Cells.  Over 100 diseases in hundreds if not thousands of patients have already been treated successfully including HEART DISEASE, CEREBRAL PALSY, DIABETES, PAD/AMPUTATION, STROKE, MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and more. https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/10/10/do-stem-cell-treatments-work/

As for Max’s statement: “America once paved the way for such innovations but now we are lacking in almost every field; sustainable energy, data infrastructure, public transport. Do not let stem cells be the next failure of our time”…

Max, I share your position 100% but I’m afraid that ship has sailed long ago.  The US, already years behind most of the world in regard to Stem Cell research FOR TREATMENTS of our millions of ill patients, is still losing ground.  https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/screw-the-embryos-they%e2%80%99re-irrelevant/

Imagine this scenario.  A patient comes back from Repair Stem Cell treatment oversees and is already seeing improvements when she and her spouse got off of the plane.  Her husband says: “I’m so glad we’re back and you’re feeling better.”  She responds:  “Yeah, I love America! It’s a great place to live…it’s just a bad place to get sick.”

‘No proof’ of benefit to children????

The factual information is only half here and the conclusions are all wrong! My comments in red. -dg

No proof’ of benefit to children

By REBECCA TODD – The PressLast updated 05:00 23/09/2009

Stem-cell treatment is “highly experimental”, with “potential hazards“, the Paediatric Society of New Zealand warns.

Re: “highly experimental”
  • There have been thousands of adult/repair stem cell treatments with virtually no side effects and a significant proportion were successful.
Re: “potential hazards”
  • By not differentiating between the problematic embryonic stem cells with a history of causing tumors and the non-problematic adult stem cells with a history of treating people successfully, the author  effectively generalizes to the point of ridiculousness.  This is like saying: “all bacteria is bad.” (think pro-biotic and beneficial flora in the digetive tract)

… society president Rosemary Marks said the therapy (had) no controlled studies to back claims of dramatic improvements.

Re: “No controlled studies:”
  • 5,030 scholarly papers when you type “stem cell” and cerebral palsy into google’s scholarly papers
  • 2,572 clinical trials completed or in process when you type “stem cell” into clinicaltrials.gov (After “studies,” scientists perform even more rigorous clinical trials to back up their findings.)
  • 1,160,000 scholarly papers when you type “stem cell” into google’s scholarly papers

It said the stem-cell operation carried risks of introducing viral diseases or bacterial infections, and even malignant tumours developing after the transplant.

Re: “viral diseases, bacterial infections, malignant tumours”

  1. Any blood drawn that goes through a lab is at risk of “viral diseases or bacterial infections.”
  2. So too, any stem cell rich sample drawn that goes through a lab is at risk of “viral diseases or bacterial infections.”
  3. Evidence supports that the risk is the same for both and standard safe practice of lab protocols removes this risk almost entirely.
  4. ONLY embryonic stem cells have a history of creating tumors and malignant tumors.
  5. Adult stem cells have no history of generating tumors in thousands of studies, clinical trials and patients treated.

“…stem-cell treatment for children with cerebral palsy is unproven…

Re: “Unproven”

“Most centres offering this treatment also follow the treatment with intensive physical-therapy programmes,” the pamphlet said. “It is very difficult to know whether improvements are the result of the stem-cell treatment itself, or the intensive physical therapy, or are the result of the child growing and developing.”

Re: “It is very difficult to know whether improvements are the result of the stem-cell treatment itself, or the intensive physical therapy, or are the result of the child growing and developing.”

“…there was “no evidence” that using your own cord blood had benefits, he said.”

Re: “no evidence”
  • One stem cell center uses a treatment method involving any cord blood.  The cord blood does not have to be autologous or from the patient’s own body.  So far, it’s been effective in treating cerebral palsy with an 80 percent success rate in over 200 patients.

Adult Stem Cells Restore Sight to the Blind

By Bob Ellis on June 5th, 2009

It looks as if there may be yet another successful therapy derived from adult stem cells, on top of the more than 70 (more like 130-150 -dg) other successful adult stem cell treatments for illnesses like meningitis-related limb damage, brain injury, stroke, retina regeneration, heart tissue regeneration, angina, diabetes, bone cancer, nerve regeneration, cerebral palsy, cartilage regeneration, Parkinsons, kidney damage, liver cancer, lupus, multiple sclerosis, leukemia and more.

Perhaps some blind people may soon be able to retire their guide dogs.

Families flying toddlers to China for stem-cell treatments

In ALL ARTICLES, STEM CELLS IN THE NEWS on April 29, 2009 at 7:01 pm

Why is this important?  Because every treating doctor whom the Repair Stem Cell Institute has asked, has said: “With only one exception, the sooner we are able to treat a patient with stem cells after they have been diagnosed or start showing symptoms, the better the results will be.”

The one minor exception is SCI, because if you can’t treat it in the first couple of days after the trauma, it is better to wait 6 to 12 months before starting stem cell procedure.

For CP, sooner is definitely better. Well done, Klomp family!-dg

cerebral palsy

cerebral palsy

April 29th, 2009 By Barbara Anderson

Driven mostly by hope, two California families will travel more than 6,000 miles to China for an experimental stem-cell treatment for their children.

Aleesha and Michael Klomp of Hanford, Calif., say they don’t need guarantees — they’re willing to take a chance so their son Gryphon Klomp, 2, might walk and grasp a spoon some day soon. Fresno, Calif., mother Jennifer Schmidt has the same faith about the benefits of umbilical-cord stem-cell therapy for 2-year-old daughter Brooke Schmidt-Jordan.

Both toddlers have cerebral palsy. Their families’ situation highlights the real-world effects of the prolonged national debate over stem-cell research.

That research in the United States has been delayed amid concerns about the use of stem cells taken from embryos destroyed in the process. The families want to use stem cells from donor umbilical cord blood — but even that form of treatment has not progressed here as fast as it has overseas.

President Barack Obama’s administration this month proposed looser restrictions on stem-cell research than those that the Bush administration had enacted, yet it could be years before the United States catches up to other countries in therapies offered to the public.

The families don’t think their children have that much time.

“Why would I wait five years to help him?” asked Michael Klomp…

High hopes for tiny cells

TWO days after her first-born daughter’s experimental stem cell treatment, Karen Jepp walked into a London hotel room to face the results. She had steeled herself for disappointment, for the fact she might have flushed $15,000 — much of it not her own money — down the drain. She reminded herself of what the doctors had said: that results might not appear for months, or at all.

But she couldn’t quite quell the hope that 23-month-old Sierra Rose’s severe cerebral palsy might have abated — just a little. That the stem cells from Sierra’s bone marrow, extracted and injected into her spine, had travelled into the brain and somehow healed the damaged neurons.

Sierra was lying on the hotel bed, next to her father, Shane Hill.

“I picked her up, and I said, ‘Shane, she feels looser,’ ” Karen says. The “tone” or spasticity in Sierra’s limbs seemed less. “It was really obvious.”

She went through some of the exercises they had learnt from physiotherapy. One involved pulling Sierra’s legs apart, to see how far they would go before the muscles locked up. The previous record was 10 to 15 centimetres. Now they moved 25 centimetres.

Hope growing, Karen tried another test: touching Sierra’s elbows together. It couldn’t be done before. Now they touched.

“I was excited, delighted,” Karen says from her home in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. “It was a big risk to spend the money, to ask people to support us (through fund-raising for Sierra’s treatment), when we couldn’t be sure we would get any results. There was a lot at stake. We had taken a big risk emotionally as well.”

These risks are being taken by more and more parents, as the slow but sure scientific process labours behind the extraordinary promise of the healing potential of stem cells.

…One clinic in Germany seemed to stand out as the safest bet in an area with no guarantees.

The clinician they spoke to at the XCell Centre in Cologne made no rash promises. “She said we don’t have any case studies for cerebral palsy,” Karen says. “She said there’s a 40 per cent chance it might work. It could be mild to significant improvement. She had seen some people get no improvement, though no one had gone backwards.”

…these matter-of-fact warnings persuaded Shane and Karen it was worth a try.
