|Last month, Stem Cell News reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared the way for the first trial to see if human embryonic stem cells can treat people safely. A California biotechnology company said it plans to use stem cells to regrow nerve tissue in patients with crushed, but not severed, spinal cords in a clinical trial. This and other companies focusing on stem cell treatment abroad provides services that help many people dealing with autism, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injuries regain their health and quality of life. Locally, I’ve spoken to a stem cell specialist in the San Diego area and he informs me that to benefit from the most recent advances in stem cell therapy Mexico residents consistently seek knowledgeable, compassionate, patient-centered care by highly trained physicians dedicated to serving their patients, survivors, family members, and friends in the area. He adds that it is vitally important to make stem cell services accessible especially to communities lacking such access.
Stem cell treatment abroad and at home relies on cell therapy as defined as a group of new techniques, or technologies, that involve replacing diseased or dysfunctional cells with healthy, functioning ones. These new techniques are being applied to a wide range of human diseases, including many types of cancer, neurological diseases such as Parkinson's and Lou Gehrig's disease, spinal cord injuries, and diabetes. This therapy is similar to the process of organ transplant, only the treatment consists of the transplantation of cells rather than organs. Stem cells have shown by far the most promise of supplying diseased organs with healthy new ones. Cell therapies have also shown great promise in helping to repair catastrophic spinal injuries, and helping victims of paralysis regain movement. While not all, for financial or other reasons, can receive stem cell treatment Mexico’s medical services are constantly being improved to enable this powerful technology to reach the widest range of patients as possible.
