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,

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,

Retinitis pigmentosa

Retinitis pigmentosa is the name given to a group of genetic, usually hereditary, disorders of the retina. (The retina is the part of the eye that converts light to nerve impulses.) About one in 3500 people suffer from retinitis pigmentosa throughout the world. It is a progressive disease ending in tunnel vision or complete blindness and for which there is no known cure.

Diabetic retinopathy

One of the usual complications of diabetes is the breakdown of the blood vessels that feed the retina, which is the part of the eye that processes images. Retinopathy occurs when blood leaks out of those vessels into the eye, causing blurred vision and ultimately blindness. Eighty percent of all patients who have suffered from diabetes for ten years develop diabetic retinopathy as a consequence.

How to use a Heart Machine (AED) (3 min video a very impressive watch).

    Watching this video, could help you save someone’s life.  Maybe someone you know or a complete stranger. 

    We have all walked by the AED sign in airports or public places indicating where a heart machine (AED-Automated External Defibrillator ) is located.  Do you know what is in them and how to use it?  

ProgenCell success stories: Scleroderma

A forty-four-year-old man came to us with scleroderma in 2008. His disease had already progressed several years by then and his skin had become hardened almost like cardboard. He was unable to turn his head because of the tightness of his neck and speech was difficult because of tightness of his lips. He had only limited movement in his hands and fingers and complained of pain in his joints and back as well as depression.

Reevaluating arthritis


In the past, people with arthritis have had to resign themselves to it as being just another part of growing old. Traditional treatment emphasizes medications – anti-inflammatories and analgesics – to mask the symptoms. This lessens the amount of pain a patient experiences but it does not help the patient get better.

Stem cells offer hope for autism

Medical science still doesn’t know what causes autism, which is a spectrum disorder of the brain that appears with varying severity in as much as one percent of the population, but we do know that the spectrum is associated with restricted flow of blood to the brain and with immune dysregulation.

The connection between autism and the immunological system has created a lot of interest within the regenerative medicine community.
