Healing Your Own Heart?

Friday, July 14, 2006 - Stem Cell Guru

Chicago's ABC Channel 7 TV news station features an article on ongoing studies in the US into reversing the damage caused by heart attacks.

The article 'Healing Your Own Heart?' covers the use of adult stem cells to help heal the damage. At present there are two different trials in Chicago trying to determine if adult stem cells could help heart patients who have run out of options. Some U.S. researchers say proof that stem cell treatments work on hearts, or are even safe, is still far away as the experimental treatments have not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

But, the article goes on to add that "an Israeli-Thai company, Theravitae, is now doing stem cells therapy on heart patients and claiming good results. Hawaiian entertainer Don Ho had the treatment this past December, and so far says he is feeling much better."

There is a possibility that a variety of this treatment may, in the future, be use to treat certain kinds of kidney ailments.

However, it is too early to make any further comment than that.
