Clara had a severe heart attack in 2004. Before contacting us she had received adult stem cells from a company in Thailand - a process requiring at least a one week stay.
When she contacted Stemaid™, she had just had an echocardiogram showing that her overall left ventricular ejection fraction was estimated to be 30 to 35%. She opted to receive one injection of 5 million Embryonic Stem Cells by Stemaid™ in November 2010. She arrived at 1pm and was done by 3pm the same day.
We received the following email from her in April 2011: I had an EKO last week and rate is 44%, up from the 33/35% it was before I received Stemaid's stem cells! . Are the stem cells still available and still as good?
The heart contains a small amount of stem cells, the cardiac stem cells, that are produced when there is a need for production of more heart cells or for an active replacement of damaged ones. These cardiac cells are produced in high quantity for about one week following an infarction, actively repairing the damaged areas of the heart.
However this high production stops after a week and the repair stops as well.
Initial studies showed that by introducing embryonic stem cells, the heart starts to repair again within minutes of their injection. More recent studies showed that the injection of embryonic stem cells actually triggers the production of cardiac stem cells for one week. Another week of active repair is offered each time that one receives embryonic stem cells.
If you have suffered from an infarction, we suggest a minimum of 3 injections of esc over the course of 3 weeks to get significant repair.
Some of the patients who have received Stemaid™ Embryonic Stem-Cells have agreed to be mentioned on our website so that we may illustrate the benefits of them.
