Stem Cell Treatments Help To Regenerate New Tissue That Extends Peyton Manning’s Career

thNew Orleans – NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, a New Orleans native is having a record season, in part to a stem cell therapy he received Europe.
During the 20 10 and 2011 seasons, Manning sustained potentially career ending neck injuries that forced him to undergo conventional surgeries to repair neck discs pressing his spinal cord by removing older discs and adding spacers and plates.

Unfortunately,  Manning’s surgical procedures did not produce the desired results. Manning is a super athlete that required to perform at a superior level at all times.

Manning investigated stem cell therapy in the US but discovered that the protocols that uses his own fat cells to regenerate the nerves around his neck are not approved. He did locate a facility in Europe that performs stem cell therapy.

Wikipedia defines Stem cell therapy is an intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury. Many medical researchers believe that stem cell treatments have the potential to change the face of human disease and alleviate suffering.[1] The ability of stem cells to self-renew and give rise to subsequent generations with variable degrees of differentiation capacities,[2] offers significant potential for generation of tissues that can potentially replace diseased and damaged areas in the body, with minimal risk of rejection and side effects.

There are many success stories regenerating new body parts, ligaments, cancer, Type 1 diabetes mellitus, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Celiac disease, cardiac failure, muscle damage and neurological disorders, but the US lags behind in the use of stem cells due to the fear of cloning and other bits of false information that hold back American innovation in the medical sciences.

It is time for the US increase the investment in these and other biomedical discoveries so that the thousands of people with crippling diseases can find hope that their quality of life will one day improve.
