Think ahead for transplantation

I was speaking with my good friend in neurosurgery last night. We talked about the injections of trophic factors and stem cell-derived brain cells into patients with Wolfram syndrome and other degenerative disorders. Our conclusion is that we should start preparing for these now. We need a CLIA-Certified facility to create¬†stem cells using patients’ skin cells (not the embryonic stem cells) and stem cell-derived brain cells and eye cells. We need devices for injections of trophic factors and stem cell-derived brain cells. We need to think ahead. The stem cell-based therapy group started last night.

Thank you for reading this blog. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I feel empowered today. Kindly, Fumi Urano
