"Why Can't They Use Stem Cells to Help Stroke Recovery?"

I am happy that this blog has been able to partner with SanBio, a company on the leading edge of stroke recovery research. They aim to answer the question, can stem cells help with stroke recovery? SanBio is a San Francisco based company that is looking for participants for their study.

You can get all the information you need by clicking on the SanBio link, to the right.

  • A few pertinent points about the study:
  • Participants (subjects) must be between 6 and 36 months post stroke
  • All participants will have had an ischemic stroke (a block, not a bleed)
  • All participants will have their movement, sensation and cognitive ability tested
  • The safety of the treatment is the primary focus of the study
  • The studies being conducted in two places: Palo Alto, CA and Pittsburgh, PA
  • "All transportation and study-related costs will be covered"

But Pete, Dr Steenblock already has his Stemgevity pills for only 89.95 for 90 pills although he doesn't point to any research.

Please delete the link I don't want to even point to this quackery.

Hi Dean, thanks for your comment. Unfortunately I can't delete only the Link from your comment. Do you have a blog entry on these pills? I have a query into an expert in the field, so I might do something blog wise in the future. We need to know what doesn't work.

My wife had this procedure several months ago with modest results so far. I read that some professionals think the procedure provides better results if applid much earlier, like one week pst stroke.
