Apparently they are doing quite a bit with cord blood stem cells there also.

Note they mention that they had goven cord blood but could not be certain it was the cord blood stem cells that had helped but now have proven that it was...........

interesting. My previous belief was that cord blood stems would have limited usefulness, stories like this make me rethink the possibility that something simple and readily available may turn out having al lot more usefulness than it seemed they could

I hear you, Me too! :lol:
But is it any wonder that people are going to China to get cord blood stem cells in an IV with research like that showing the cells go to the brain and repair?

I wouldn't do it, the problem to me is screening, if even one lady out of the pool of God knows how many was a carrier for hepatitis, guess what you get in additon to MS???

And guess what; if you got hepatitis, you can't have revimmune or any other new chemo type thing that comes out no matter how good it is.

It's a risky proposition.

I WOULD consider my own stem cells though in just an IV like that though. A little more genuine research along these lines and I'll be wanting it sooner than later.

Just as soon as my veins are fixed :lol: :lol:
