Posted on 02/07/2014 9:13:51 PM PST by Olog-hai
A scientific breakthrough that enables researchers to create adult stem cells much faster and easier will radically transform the way medicine is practiced, predicts Dr. Marc Darrow,assistant clinical professor of medicine at the University of California/Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Medicine.
It will be the standard of care, said Darrow, who teaches regenerative techniques utilizing platelets and adult stem cells to medical residents at UCLA, and who has been using the same techniques to treat patients with joint, tendon, ligament and muscle injuries in his own LA clinic. [ ]
Our bodies make stem cells all day long and thats probably whats keeping us alive, by regenerating tissue. The whole field of medicine is moving into regenerative medicine, Darrow told CNSNews.com.
And despite the fact that most insurance does not cover stem cell therapy, he predicted: This will become the new medicine sometime soon.

I don’t see how that benefits anyone if it can’t be used to justify killing babies.
Always a “caveat emptor”, isn’t there?
We are fearfully, wonderfully, made.
I thought it was 0bama who would Transform Medicine.
That’s the good news. Because adult stem cells are more responsive, they can move away from embryonic stem cells.
This could be promising for our craziness.
If this come true we could scare kids 1/2 our age with our fearlessness
Bahda Bing !
It’ll take 30 years to get the FDA to approve it.
From the article
Darrow said, stem cell therapy is the easiest, simplest and cheapest form of medicine that I know of to regenerate tissue, get rid of pain and return function.
Yes Obama will transform medicine. After he is done you wont recognize medicine as the once humane profession it was when you were a kid.
After Obama is done no matter how cheap medicine might become you wont be able get medicine unless the death panels deem you worthy.
Not as bad as asking for a ping of Guinness...
Anyone up for making Guinness pings the next Facebood?
it wont be long before using adult stem cells to regenerate damaged tissue becomes standard medical care. Who wants to do surgery when its going to hurt someone? Who wants to get surgery when it can hurt [you]? This is the way. This is the Holy Grail. It's a no-brainer. - See more at: http://cnsnews.com/news/article/barbara-hollingsworth/adult-stem-cell-breakthrough-will-transform-medicine-doctor#sthash.Co2hHmuT.dpufAfter Obama is done no matter how cheap medicine might become you wont be able get medicine unless the death panels deem you worthy.Itll take 30 years to get the FDA to approve it.

Ha! Well be getting this treatment using a 3-D printer!(dont 3-D printers do everything?)

course thatd be the end of any annuity/pension/social security system . . . NO WAY they survive unlimited life expectancy.
That it could. We'll be back to 250-300' Australian rappelling to start.
Adult stem cells saved my cousin’s life. A sibling donated the stem cells and the rare form of leukemia has been in remission since.
Man, when I get better we should meet.
When my shoulder gets better I’m going to Utah and bungee jumping off tge Corona Arch, UT.
Hopefully in June.
Go for it.
“But... but... we want to murder BABIES! This is gonna ruin everything for us.”
The use of embryonic stem cells has produced absolutely NOTHING good that I am aware of. Adult stem cell therapies have gone from success to success to more success.
Sure, if “deform” was what they really meant.
Works for the sea level, doesnt it?
