Adult Stem Cell Breakthrough Will Transform Medicine, Doctor Predicts

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 that’s probably what’s 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.

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.

I thought it was 0bama who would Transform Medicine.

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 won’t 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 won’t be able get medicine unless the death panels deem you worthy.

it won’t be long before using adult stem cells to regenerate damaged tissue becomes standard medical care. “Who wants to do surgery when it’s 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.dpuf

Ha! We’ll be getting this treatment using a 3-D printer!
(don’t 3-D printers do everything?)

Hmmm . . . new heart, new prostate, new 12-year molars . . . some new joints, maybe a few other odds and ends . . .
’course that’d 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.

Skydiving, bull riding, 350' rappels . . . and I've never bungee jumped.

Go for it.

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.
