TheraVitae Founder Don Margolis issued the following Press Release to pass on his birthday wishes to stem cell heart patient Don Ho.


Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) August 18, 2006 -- Don Margolis, Founder of TheraVitae, the producer of VesCell Adult Stem Cell Therapy for Heart Disease wished legendary Hawaiian crooner Don Ho a happy birthday today from his home in Bangkok, Thailand.

“A friend sent me a recent story published in the Honolulu Advertiser about Don Ho. When I met him at Bangkok Heart Hospital last year, we hit it off right away. I am delighted to see that Don’s recovery has progressed so well. I just wanted to take this opportunity to wish Don a happy 76th birthday -- and many more,” said Margolis.

TheraVitae is one of the world’s leading stem cell therapy companies, focused on using the patient's own (autologous) adult stem cells to treat a variety of disorders, especially cardiovascular diseases. Nominated by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer for 2006, the company conducted a clinical trial in Bangkok, Thailand that led to the approval of its first commercial therapy for "no option" heart patients, VesCell. Over 130 patients suffering from very severe angina pectoris or heart failure have been successfully treated with VesCell by either administration of the cells through the heart arteries, or by direct injection into the heart muscle.

On April 12, 2006, the company announced the enrollment of its first patient in a clinical trial to study the safety and efficacy of the administration of autologous adult stem cells to patients suffering from severe Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), a deficiency of blood supply to the lower limbs.
