This isn’t to say that all is roses with no thorns. The process that helps stem cells to perform their miracles is still a mystery. Although certain patients see significant improvements, if not cures, some may not benefit from the same care. As a result, anything becomes a gamble, highlighting the need for a lot more analysis. The messengers who carry out the healing process are still unknown. The relationship between a patient’s age and the amount and quality of stem cells available is still a mystery.

The issue of cell viability and ability to divide is particularly essential for diseases that occur later in life. When have the stem cells’ healing powers been depleted? Is it possible that an early preventive withdrawal will be beneficial? Then there’s the problem of how to address and deal with the embryonic stem cell controversy while continuing to perform the requisite studies.
The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine awarded approximately $7 million in multi-year grants to the University of California at Davis for R&D of adult stem cell therapies in August 2009, recognising the urgent need for advanced research in this important field. UC Davis has started work on a new Center for Regenerative Cures in Sacramento, which will house more than 125 scientists and doctors, bringing the possibility of cures for many incurable diseases closer to existence.
Since stem cells and stem cell therapy have gained a lot of recent media attention, some of it contentious, I’ve decided to talk about stem cells in general, as well as some approaches to stem cell therapy, this month. The stem cell therapies I promote are both legal and easy, particularly now that a new nutritional supplement called Stemplex is on the market, which I’ll talk about later. But first, a little background on stem cells…
