Stem Cell Progress Being Made

Postby misterjuanperalta on September 1st, 2014, 10:36 am

Excerpt:

"The first major surprise occurred with the trial’s most impressive responder, Atlanta resident Ted Harada, who couldn’t walk without a cane before receiving one million cells, 500,000 on either side of his lower spine. Within months, in March 2011, he had abandoned the cane and participated in a 2.5 mile walkathon, actions considered unprecedented in medical circles."

Please remember that this is a forum for BFS sufferers, not ALS sufferers. While many here have an unhealthy preoccupation with ALS, this kind of stuff isn't relevant to this forum.

It may not be relevant to people with BFS, but it sure as hell is much welcomed good news (from last year).

Welp, if it's not relevant to BFS, then it has no business on this board. This website is AboutBFS, not AboutALS. Good news, sure. Doesn't mean it belongs on this forum.

He's right. I just thought it would have some anxiety relief benefits.
