ANIMALS BENEFIT FROM STEM CELL TREATMENTS

Pineville vet using stem cell therapy

This past November, Mikey, a German Shepard, was dealing with “the most progressive hip dysplasia I’ve seen in 13 years,” said Dr. Michael Herman, a veterinarian who owns South Charlotte Animal Hospital in Pineville. “His X-rays were just horrific, showing bone against bone.”

Dr. Michael Herman, one of the first veterinarians in Charlotte to offer stem cell therapy for animals, used an innovative stem cell procedure to regenerate growth in Mikey’s hips and leg joints.  First, Dr. Herman extracted fat tissue from behind the shoulder area of Mikey.  Then his technician at the hospital then adds enzymes to “photo activate” the cells, which in turn accelerates the regeneration of cells. Dr. Herman then injected the regenerated cells directly into the joint areas while intravenously administering any leftover cells.

“I normally take about two tablespoons of fat from either the shoulder area of the animal or the abdomen and within that fat is five to 50 times the amount of stem cells than what we can get from bone marrow.”  Stem cells are the body’s repair cells, and they have the ability to divide and differentiate into many different types of cells based on where they are needed throughout the body.  The cells can divide and turn into tissues such as skin, fat, muscle bone, cartilage and nerve, said Dr. Herman.

“Cells at the embryonic level can differentiate cells on a much higher level, even replicating human organs.  Contrary to embryonic cells, Dr. Herman said, “There are no moral or ethical concerns in harvesting these adult cells, activating them and reintroducing them back to the animal patients in areas where healing and regeneration is needed.”

 “Regenerative medicine is really the wave of the futures for veterinarians…It’s less invasive and will be a huge part of treating patients.”

“Mikey’s owners, Stephan Nadzam, 37 and his wife, Rosa DiSimone, 44, who live near Lake Wylie, know how stem cell therapy has affected their beloved dog.  The pair rescued Mikey from a family that kept him crated nearly all day and night for four years, leaving Mikey’s legs in bad shape. He underwent stem cell therapy in 2009 performed by a New Jersey veterinarian. It provided relief for nearly four years until they noticed the dog was having trouble with stairs.”

Dr. Herman performed the procedure on Mikey in the end of November and within the first 24 hrs he was up and mobile.  Mikey’s owners noticed continued Improvement over the following days and noted that since the treatment, they have not fed Mikey any pain medication.

“Katie Miller of Cotswold is just as equally proud of her 13-year-old Labrador mix, Sadie, who suffers from osteoarthritis.  In addition to having Herman perform therapy on the dog, Sadie also received a dose of platelet-rich plasma.  Miller shared a video of Sadie walking across her kitchen the night before the treatment. The dog hobbled and limped, breathing heavily. She then shared a video of Sadie trotting outside happily after 12 days.  I truly think it’s been a miracle for her. It’s allowed cells to regenerate and cartilage to rebuild. She and our younger dog play now, and Leila can sense how much better Sadie feels. Even her eyes look happier.”

Dr Herman said, “He has had a 95 percent success rate and sees “amazing” differences in his patients on average about 45 days after procedures.

BENNY HILL IS ALIVE AND WELL AS BRITAIN GOES BLIND

In ALL ARTICLES on September 23, 2011 at 7:00 am

Remember in the final scene of every episode of Benny Hill where he does something really scandalous and then gets chased by the entire cast around and around in circles?  Turns out, Benny Hill is ALIVE AND WELL and advising Britain on their medical protocols!  https://i2.wp.com/www.webtvwire.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/the-benny-hill-show-logo.jpg

You see, Britain, like the USA, is chasing this fleet footed “embryonic stem cell treatment comedy of errors” around and around in circles just like in the Benny Hill episodes.  Every week, the same scene is played out with Benny running, the entire cast chasing and he never gets caught.  So in Art, so in life.  Britain is chasing embryonic stem cells used for treatment of optic diseases.  And remember…

  • Embryonic stem cells STILL have ZERO successful clinical trials
  • Embryonic stem cells STILL cause cysts and tumors that can become cancerous (wait 20 years and ask again though)
  • Embryonic stem cells STILL have rejection issues that require immunosuppressive drugs
  • Embryonic stem cells STILL carry the genetic anomalies of the donor
ON THE OTHER HAND…

So on top of wasting time chasing a cure with no prior history of success and huge negative side effects, thy are running right past a treatment with a huge history of success and safety and trials.

So cue up the cameras, get everyone in costume and let’s start that famous music going as everyone chases embryonic stem cell treatments around and around.  Wait! STOP! Hold it! CUT!

How on earth can we explain the entire medical community and government running right past what already works?  Got it! Give them all blindfolds!  That way they can be assured to miss the forest but they will hit every damn tree in it and so will the patients, patiently waiting for treatments which will never come!

…annndddd   ACTION!!!

Iris of a human eye

First trial of embryonic stem cell treatment in Europe gets green light

Patients in Britain with an eye disease that leads to blindness will take part in Europe’s first human embryonic stem cell trial

British surgeons are to take part in the first trial in patients of a human embryonic stem cell therapy to gain approval from regulators in Europe.

Surgeons at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London will inject cells into the eyes of 12 patients with an incurable eye disease called Stargardt’s macular dystrophy, one of the main causes of blindness in young people…
