    The Alliance for the Advancement of Adult Stem Cell Therapy and Research Announces Successful Treatment of End-Stage Heart Disease with Stem Cells

    Adult Stem Cell Therapy Proves Effective in Treatment of Previously Untreatable Cardiomyopathy

    BONITA SPRINGS, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zannos Grekos, MD, Associate Clinical Professor at Nova Southeastern University, has announced six month follow-up results for a patient treated with adult stem cells in a clinical study of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. The clinical study is a collaborative effort among physicians at Regenocyte Therapeutic, an American stem cell therapy clinic; researchers and scientists from Theravitae, a biotechnology company from Israel; and physicians from the American Institute for Regenerative Medicine, Dominican Republic.

    Leonard Narracci, 71 from Venice, Florida, underwent the adult stem cell therapy in October 2008. Since being diagnosed with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure, Narracci's ejection fraction was severely reduced at 18% (with normal being over 55%). Within three months of the treatment, his ejection fraction improved to 40% and it is now at 51%.

    ?It goes against traditional theory that we should try to fix damaged heart muscle, but we are generating new heart tissue with impressive results that improve cardiac function and quality of life,? said Dr. Leonel Fernandez Liriano, Professor of Medicine at Pontifical Catholic University School of Medicine (PCUSM), and the head of the cardiology team that treated the patient with adult stem cells.

    Grekos states, ?After comparing this patient?s echocardiogram and MUGA nuclear scans before and after treatment, we are very pleased to see a profound increase in cardiac function.?

    Regenocyte Therapeutic has treated several similar patients and they are demonstrating correlative improvements. Grekos continues, ?We have had success in the ischemic heart disease patients since 2006, and it is encouraging to see that the technology can now be applied to other diseases.? Regenocyte Therapeutic is also treating patients with pulmonary hypertension, COPD, kidney disease, peripheral artery disease, and early senile dementia.

    Athina Kyritsis, MD, chair of Regenocyte?s Scientific Advisory Board, says the patient results are based upon several years of Regenocyte?s clinical experience in the treatment of numerous degenerative diseases with adult stem cell therapy. ?We have had consistent success in generating viable heart tissue and growing new vessels, treating diseases like cardiomyopathy and peripheral vascular disease. With the increased circulation, healing of wounds and improvement in ejection fractions, it seemed a natural progression to approach cardiomyopathy in the same manner. I believe we have only begun to discover what adult stem cells can accomplish in altering the course of diseases until now thought to be untreatable.?

    Dr. Grekos, Regenocyte, is where I had my treatment. I am doing great! From an EF20 to an EF 30 in one month after stem cell treatment. I am so greatful.

    I do not have a web site at this time. I will speak to anyone about my experience. It is wonderful. I have a new life after only a month. Adult Stem cell therapy has given me back my life.

    Hi Healing Heart - We do not allow website addresses or promotional information for doctors or clinics to be posted by members. That's why I edited your post. This decision was reached after many sales people took advantage of our good nature and wanted to use the forum as a sales tool.

    I do caution anyone that has gotten stem cell therapy that results may not be long lasting in some cases. I do not want to burst your bubble and certainly am not implying that this could happen to anyone in particular that posts of early success on the forum, but some therapy has resulted in big disappointments for people who felt better quickly only to have that feeling fade away. I know because it happened to me the first time I had treatment. I attribute mine to growth factors which is a fairly common occurrence. These can make you feel good early on, but have no long lasting rejuvenating effect.

    I hope you will continue to update us with relevant clinical information. Thank you.

    No problem. I didn't realize that when I was asked for a site.

    I do pray that mine will continue to work. Thank you.
