Shhh…don’t tell the drug companies! Here is a news clip from the Journal of the American Medical Association about patients with auto immune diseases and cardiovascular disorders being treated with their own stem cells. From Dr. Richard Burt from Northwestern University Feinburg School of Medicine on the JAMA Report:
“It’s a whole new approach to these diseases, rather than just surgery or drugs. You can use a cellular approach that seems, in many different studies, to be benefiting the patient.”
The review of these treatments appears in this weeks publication of JAMA.
(a friend of mine emailed me this story after seeing it on Vital Signs)
