    Military Veteran with Spinal Cord Injury Is First Patient to Receive Intraspinal Inje

    Military Veteran with Spinal Cord Injury Is First Patient to Receive Intraspinal Injections of Reprogramed Stem Cell Therapy from Precision StemCell

    Within one month, paraplegic patient experiences movement
    GULF SHORES, Ala., Jan 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – In 2007, an ATV accident left military veteran Scott Williams with a spinal cord injury that paralyzed him from the upper chest down. In the summer of 2012, after undergoing an autologous adipose-derived stem cell transplant into his spine at the Precision StemCell (http://www.precisionstemcell.com) facility in Gulf Shores, Williams began noticing increased sensation in his left leg and the ability to slightly move both feet.
    “Within one month, I was able to move my feet some, and I haven’t done that in over five years,” Williams stated. “I feel that this is amazing progress.” Williams received the “Selegeline reprogramed adipose derived stem cells” treatment that Precision StemCell has been giving to patients suffering from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Seventy-five percent of those ALS patients have experienced improvements in moving, breathing and speech.

          The small detail is that you go to Bogota, Columbia for the injection according to their website.

            Depends on what you mean by "legit". Sure this person could have received this treatment. But that might not be the reason for the recovery. Theres alot of un answered questions that I myself have that make all the difference.

              I love to hear what Dr. Young has to say about this one. I am the list person to answer any questions regarding this. People sending me private emails with smart questions and I cannot answer them back because I don't know, but I love to get emails from my friends here. I do, when I come from work, look for the daily spinal cord injury news to see what is going on and love to post them here so we can all share them. So forgive me when I don't answer medical questions. Now, I have to tell you about this article anyway. lol, my heart got excited when I was reading it because: First, he is chronic, he moved his legs after one month right? Up to here it sounds safe. Most important, the doctors try it on humans, do you know how much they learned with those trials? I only see positive newswith this article. I am very excited, I'm always excited any way when I read things like that. Now, too many places are trying different things with humans, that's why we hear good results. Sorry my friends I have to go now to pray for good things to continue, one day, hope soon, my prayers will be answered very very soon, I hope.

              love u all, manouli.

                Very cool!

                Glad to hear about the ALS progress, too. It's in my family's genes, sadly. We've lost a MiL, & 3 Aunts/Uncles, over a couple of generations, to ALS. (That bloodline is partaking in a study in IL, currently)

                Thanks for sharing!

                  The one thing I value is you can be counted on just like the sun rising to post news that is promising in some way nearly every day.

                              one response of doctor


                              Thank you for your email! In our procedure we harvest stem cells from fat (adipose derived stem cells), then we expose them to selegeline in to generate some neural reprogramming. The stem cells are then injected into the spine (spinal fluid)
                              The work is early yet. We are about to start culturing the stem cells, which will result in much larger numbers (170+ million versus the usual 30 million). The culturing cannot be done in the USA, so we are working in conjunction with a stem cell
                              lab in Bogota, Colombia (Stem). In addition, we soon hope to start a study where we genetically engineer the stem cells to increase neural growth. The only problem is that there is no outside funding currently to back up this work.
                              We are starting to get some research funding in ALS. We hope that releasing the initial results with paralysis and nerve injury will help create awareness to gain funding to support patient treatment.
                              Currently, patients have to help fund the bulk of the expense for the procedure. We also support some of the cost as well, but with increasing numbers of patients, it is wearing our resources down.
                              We feel that these initial results show that the therapy has great potential. It may be best to follow us closely, while we work on trying to gain additional funding support.
