Is your current treatment working for you?

The biggest problem with incurable conditions is that they’re incurable. Standard treatments for such cases usually obligate the patients to spend the rest of their lives taking drugs that don’t make them better and often produce unpleasant side-effects.
Conventional wisdom has a saying about this sort of thing. “If you keep doing what you’ve been doing,

What is a cure?

One of the most troublesome words in regenerative medicine is “cure”. Pill-pushers and regulatory bureaucrats warn darkly than any practitioner in the field who would dare to use that word is guilty of fraud. And yet, more often than not, the word is used by patients whose treatments were successful.
To be fair, regenerative medicine does not cure any disease – it can only potentiate the body to heal itself by regenerating damaged cells.

Even medicine has its fashion victims.

Lately, we’ve noticed that some of the clinics that limit themselves to liposuction for their stem cells have been disparaging bone marrow as a reliable source – they’re calling it “old-fashioned”. Don’t they see the fallacy in their reasoning? There’s nothing old-fashioned about our bone-marrow protocols. A medical technique younger than the Internet can hardly qualify as old in any sense.

Stem cell therapy in the not too distant future (Humor)

We would like to share with you a flyer that Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd brought back from one of their Back to the Future ventures. By the looks of it, this future is not too far off. Some doctors are already offering similar services in their offices today.

A crash-course in eye diseases

The eye is such a complex mechanism that it can’t be dealt with effectively in blog posts. The more we know about it, the more we know that we don’t know. And, of all our five senses, vision is the one we know the most about. Here at ProgenCell, we have successfully treated many cases of macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa,

Can stem cell therapies cure diseases?

The short answer is that we still don’t know.
In saying that, ProgenCell takes a very conservative approach to the meaning of “cure”. We generally use the terms “treatment” and “therapy” to describe our work. When stem cell therapy is successful, all it really does is to help the patient’s body heal itself.
As scientists,

No news really isn’t good news

People who remember the cancer scares from the 1950s to the ’70s avoid diagnosticians because they don’t want to be told they have a fatal, incurable disease. The kindly doctors in the soap operas and Hollywood movies of that era were forever summoning up the courage to deliver the death sentence, and the people who remember those scenes would just as soon not be on the receiving end in real life.

Bone marrow stem cells aren’t just for kids…

We believe they’re for patients who want to get well.
The most famous precursor to modern stem cell therapy was pioneered by Dr. E. Donnall Thomas in 1956, when he treated a case of juvenile leukemia by completely replacing the child’s bone marrow. His risky, painful, and complex experiment immediately became associated with children and leukemia.

Stem cell treatment for Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system that often impairs speech and other motor functions. Its symptoms include muscle rigidity, tremors, and the slowing of physical movement to a total loss of physical movement in the worst cases. Secondary symptoms may include autonomic, cognitive, and linguistic impairment. Parkinson’s disease is chronic,
