Adult Stem Cells Reverse Strokes

stanfordThere’s been yet another huge breakthrough with adult stem cells—another reason to reject embryonic stem cell research which kills human embryos.  Stanford University’s School of Medicine treated eighteen patients who had stokes at least six months before, some years before.  Doctors injected donor adult stem cells from bone marrow into their brains, next to the stroke-damaged areas.  Within a month, all patients improved and could move.  The donor stem cells disappeared in less than a month, so anti-rejection drugs weren’t necessary.  But before leaving, they emitted “factors” that stimulated “regeneration” of nervous tissue.  It combined the curative powers of adult stem cells with the ability of the brain to repair itself.  Whatever the reason, I say thank you Lord!
