Adult stem cell treatment shows dramatic effect

From WorldNetDaily...

In an apparent major breakthrough, scientists in Korea report using umbilical cord blood stem cells to restore feeling and mobility to a spinal-cord injury patient.

The research, published in the peer-reviewed journal Cythotherapy, centered on a woman had been a paraplegic 19 years due to an accident.

After an infusion of umbilical cord blood stem cells, stunning results were recorded:

"The patient could move her hips and feel her hip skin on day 15 after transplantation. On day 25 after transplantation her feet responded to stimulation."...

The report said motor activity was noticed on day 7, and she was able to maintain an upright position on day 13. Fifteen days after surgery, she began to elevate both lower legs about one centimeter.

The study's abstract says not only did the patient regain feeling, but 41 days after stem cell transplantation, testing "also showed regeneration of the spinal cord at the injured cite" and below it.

Umbilical cord blood stem cells do not take a life when obtained, and are therefore not controversial, unlike those taken from babies murdered in the womb.

In spite of this report, those that love the idea of killing babies in the womb will continue to insist that embryonic, stem-cell harvesting must be done, and must be paid for by money taken by force from those who find it immoral and offensive.
