Adult Stem Cell Therapy Blog

A Brand New Life

Tuesday, March 21, 2006 - Stem Cell Guru

Today's article is a heart warming story that I've added to the blog for a couple of reasons:

Firstly, it involves a seriously ill patient who received stem cell therapy almost 3 years ago, made a successful recovery and is now living a normal life.

Secondly, it reminds us that when the term 'adult stem cells' is used it relates to stem cells taken from a living human's body rather than an embryo. Regardless of the age of the human donor - baby or adult.

And, thirdly, it serves as yet an other example of how 'adult' stem cells can be used to save lives, something that much touted embryonic stem cells have yet to be used to do in humans.

Read the full New Straits Times article and discover how little Angel Lai, a child whose doctors only gave a 10% chance of survival, is now a healthy, happy 4 year old thanks to a stem cell donation from her baby brother.
