Interesting update on SVFC potential. Can't put the link here so Google it - saw the article this morning.
Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, Director of the Facial Paralysis Institute, comments on the recent treatment of a Bell’s palsy patient with stromal vascular fraction cells.
Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 08, 2013
An article published October 9, 2013, on CNN described the recent treatment of a patient living with permanent Bell’s palsy and Type I diabetes with IntelliCell Biosciences, Inc.’s stromal vascular fraction cells. Stromal vascular fraction cells (SVFC) are developed from adult autologous vascular cells derived from blood vessels. Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS, renowned Bell’s palsy and facial paralysis surgeon, says this patient’s experience may bring hope to others with permanent Bell’s palsy.
The patient who was treated with the SVFC had undergone many unsuccessful treatments in the past, and was eventually given the new stem cell applications. He received two treatments 6 months apart. The patient experienced complete Bell’s palsy recovery and--as an unintended benefit—improvement of his diabetes condition. IntelliCell Biosciences is hopeful that its product will be revolutionary for the treatment of medical conditions that don't respond to traditional therapy, particularly Bell’s palsy.
