Bone marrow stem cell therapy used to treat spinal injury

It’s called Trinity and it’s been FDA approved since 2005.  Dr Pasquale Montesano, pictured above, has high praise for this therapy, “Trinity works as well as other, costlier options and is especially useful in patients . . . , whose prior spine fusion surgery failed.” Demand for Trinity, he says, exceeds supply.

Somehow . . . don’t you just know what that’s going to mean to some scientists, somewhere? That’s right, We need more embryonic stem cell lines! Of course!

  1. Hi .. how much time it generally takes after Adult Stem Cells (100 ml) are transplanted into one’s spinal fluid in an attempt to recover #L1 compression injury. Please note that person is recovered to a good extent already and reports say the signals do not pass below L4 and in sacrum area.

    Person is active and can walk in absurd fashion. Cannot balance himself for more than 5 seconds on bare feet. And some more symptoms but in short is not lying on bed and is independent.

    Can you please help. Thanks in advance.

    Best regards,
