Why bank? More Evidence to Bank Young Healthy Stem Cells.

cellsStem cell therapy is often a “last resort” treatment for patients with end-stage heart diseases. A recent study, however, finds that the treatment could be more harmful than helpful if cardiac stem cells are involved.

Researchers found that using patients’ own cardiac stem cells to repair damaged heart tissue may not only be ineffective but that the stem cells may also develop inflammatory properties that cause further heart damage.

In the United States, around 5.7 million adults are living with heart failure. The condition occurs when the heart is no longer able to pump enough oxygen-rich blood to fulfill the body’s needs.

There is currently no cure for heart failure. In some cases, the condition can be managed through medication and lifestyle changes. For people with end-stage heart failure, however, there are limited treatment options.

Heart transplantation remains the primary treatment for end-stage heart failure, but there are not enough donor hearts to meet recipient needs. Figures from the Organ Transplantation and Procurement Network show that there are more than 3,900 patients in the U.S. waiting for a heart transplant. Last year, 3,191 heart transplants were performed.

Scott Wolf, CEO and Director of Research for Grace Century comments: “These research findings confirm the obvious fact: stem cells from the sick hearts are not good and unusable, hence, banking from a young healthy person is the only way to secure the future health.”

New Law Opens Door for Stem Cell Therapy in Texas

image001The legal battle to get patients access to stem cell therapy in Texas is closer to reality, according to TWCNews.com latest news article.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed such legislation into law this week, and it means some patients will be heading into uncharted medical territory.

After Sept. 1, patients with terminal illnesses or severe chronic diseases will be allowed to access experimental stem cell treatments in Texas.

Currently, most patients who want stem cell therapy have to travel outside the United States to do it, and stem cell re-injections are only allowed here within a 24-hour window.

“This is going to protect patient health, and provide for the treatments to be done here locally at home,” said Mike Byrom, the Chief Science Officer at Austin stem cell bank BioEden​.

Byrom said the new law will keep patients in the country, and will provide renewed hope for those with serious ailments.

Scott Wolf, CEO and Director of Research of Grace Century commented: ”The recognition of Stem Cells treating aliments, and acceptance in Texas is cracking the flood gates open. Get the Insurance companies on board and it lights out!“

The Quantum Group Receives 13th Patent

BN-GZ066_EdpCha_P_20150216111110The Quantum Group, Inc. (QGP) is pleased to report that in the last month of 2016 it has added yet another success in the Company’s path towards helping redefine healthcare, with the issuance of its 13th patent.

This 13th patent was permanently recorded on December 27, 2016, as United States Patent #9,532,295. The patent, originally filed on August 23, 2013, bears the title “Predictive path communication protocol across a network of transiently connected mobile devices”.

One of the great benefits of PWeR is that it can collect and assemble all of an individual’s medical information from any point on the planet, and then store that data centrally, securely in one place, or online. Similarly, PWeR can then use the Internet to project it to any point on earth, on demand, as required, and in a secure manner. PWeR is capable of this, but in some places, communication of such large amounts of data is impractical and/or expensive. Predictive Path Protocol is a communication technique designed to resolve that limitation, inexpensively, at any remote point.

Brain Cancer to be Cured With Stem Cells

surgeons

Few major advances in treating aggressive brain cancer were made earlier this year, according to neurosurgeons from the University of North Carolina.

Assistant Professor Shawn Hingtgen of UNC’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy Lab has been researching new methodology of deadly brain tumours treatment and believes that a cure could originate from stem cells.

One of the most dangerous types of brain tumours – gliobastoma – leaves a high risk of cancer return even after its removal.
