During the past few years researchers at a number of leading universities including Duke University announced plans to carry out clinical studies on CP involving the use of human umbilical cord blood and in some instances pure cord blood-derived stem cells. However, long before these announcements Dr. David Steenblock was advising and working with highly credentialed and accomplished physicians in Mexico who administered pure umbilical cord stem cells to children with cerebral palsy.
This pioneering work produced remarkable turnarounds including five children with “cortical blindness” whose condition resolved following a cord blood stem cell treatment. This led to a more formal evaluation in the form of a pilot study involving eight children with cerebral palsy treated with cord blood stem cells (in Mexico) during 2004-5 which demonstrated both safety and efficacy. In 2006 Dr. Steenblock coauthored one of the very first lay-level books on umbilical cord stem cell therapy ever published titled “Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Therapy: The Gift of Healing from Healthy Newborns” (Basic Health Publications).
The results of the aforementioned study clearly showed that cord blood stem cells are very effective for CP and worthy of additional study. In the years since similar results have been seen in hundreds of children treated with cord blood stem cells at foreign clinics Dr. Steenblock serves as a medical and technical consultant (8 in 10 children have shown clinically significant improvements in various bodily and some cognitive functions after getting infusions of pure cord blood stem cells.)
Naturally, many parents who would like to see their child get a stem cell-based cerebral palsy treatment are reluctant to do so because this involves travel to Mexico, China or elsewhere. There is an alternative for at least some of these young folks: During 2010 Dr. Steenblock began administering FDA complaint stem cell-rich bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) treatments to CP patients by intravenous (IV) drip.
The results? Judge for yourself by listening to what a teenage CP patient named “Emily” had to say about her response to this treatment:
