New FDA Approved Study with Adult Bone Marrow Stem Cells in Vascular Disease
Using One's own adult stem cells taken from bone marrow, researchers are studying the effects of potentially preventing amputation in ischemic (poor blood supply)limbs. Doctors do a minimally invasive procedure obtaining stem cells, then much like PRP or platelet rich plasma they increase the concentration and then inject it. Doctors are injecting multiple sights just beneath the tissue in the blood flow deprived extremity. We look forward to following this study & the results that follow.
