@iPoop the treatment cost $18,000 but I know it varies where you go the cost might be different. I know in other places it costs less, but we decided to go to panama because we actually have family friends who went there for other medical conditions with promising results.
My shot of Stellara costs my insurance exactly $18,000 and it's not nearly as effective and I need it every 2 months.
I'm worried about
the rogue reaction to the Stem Cells where they don't do as expected and cause something else to be set off or grow. I'd be one of the first ones to line up for it after the clinical trials are concluded in the US and approved by the FDA. This is all very promising and rapidly advancing. I'm very happy that it is working for you.By rogue reaction, do you mean a negative adverse affect or that your body will reject the stem cells. I'm going to copy what it says exactly from the site what they have to say about
your concern. These stem cells by the way are collected from umbilical cord tissue, are the trials you're going for, the same type of stem cells? Just wondering. "The body’s immune system is unable to recognize umbilical tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells as foreign and therefore they are not rejected. We’ve treated more than 1,000 patients with HUCT stem cells and there has never been a single instance rejection (graft vs. host disease)."
EDIT: misread what you said, I thought you said you were going to the trials. Whether or not they work for someone is based on the person, but from the institute told me, everyone they've treated said they've felt better. Also it depends on the severity of the condition and your health overall. Also, if you're a smoker you need to stop 2 weeks before and 6 months after treatment. If this has any relevance; the family friend we knew had autism and he had to go for more than one treatment but he did start noticing improvement after the first. Depends on the condition, and severity.
