  • Ref stem cell therapy stroke

    Stem cells shown safe, beneficial for chronic stroke patients
    Stanford, 2016

    People disabled by a stroke demonstrated substantial recovery long after the event when modified adult stem cells were injected into their brains.

    Injecting modified, human, adult stem cells directly into the brains of chronic stroke patients proved not only safe but effective in restoring motor function, according to the findings of a small clinical trial led by Stanford University School of Medicine investigators.

    The patients, all of whom had suffered their first and only stroke between six months and three years before receiving the injections, remained conscious under light anesthesia throughout the procedure, which involved drilling a small hole through their skulls. The next day they all went home.

    ‘Clinically meaningful’ results

    “This was just a single trial, and a small one,” cautioned Steinberg, who led the 18-patient trial and conducted 12 of the procedures himself. (The rest were performed at the University of Pittsburgh.) “It was designed primarily to test the procedure’s safety. But patients improved by several standard measures, and their improvement was not only statistically significant, but clinically meaningful. Their ability to move around has recovered visibly. That’s unprecedented. At six months out from a stroke, you don’t expect to see any further recovery.”

    This meta-analysis has a slightly more "cautious view"

    Cell therapies administered in the chronic phase after stroke: a meta-analysis examining safety and efficacy.

    Abstract
    AIM:
    To assess the safety and efficacy of cell therapies for chronic stroke.
    METHODOLOGY:
    Five databases were searched for treatments administered >90 days post-stroke. Reporting quality, adherence to research guidelines, treatment safety (risk ratios/pooled incidence rates) and neurological/functional efficacy (Hedge's g) were all evaluated.
    RESULTS:
    Twenty-three studies examined 17 treatments. Reporting quality scores were medium to high, but adherence to recommended guidelines was lower. Three treatments resulted in serious adverse events; four improved outcomes more than standard care. However, many studies were under-powered and individual patients varied in their response to some treatments.

    CONCLUSION:
    Preliminary findings suggest that some cell therapies may be relatively safe and effective, but larger double-blinded placebo-controlled studies are needed to establish the long-term risks and benefits.

    For patients to improve as in this video (Stanford) must be quite empowering

      Alas there are many (many) frauds walking around the globe, it is a good thing to expose these malpractises (stemcell fraud on 60 min.s)
      and others like the market for organs

      Unfortunatly whenever there is big $$ to be made there will be people willing to do whatever it takes to get that $$

      Don't be mistaken it doesn't have to be fraud per se, for example the pharmaceutical industry produces and doctors prescribe many drugs where the NNT,
      Number Needed to Treat is quite high http://www.nature.com/news/personali...trials-1.17411

      That means many people take drugs (with potential serious side effects) who will never benefit from these pharmaceuticals
