[update] Reminder: Stem Cell Treatments Already Available

Medra… a company that is already offering stem cell cures to the public.

From the website:

A medical procedure whereby Human Fetal Stem Cells are transplanted into a patient. These cellular building blocks are usually administered intravenously and subcutaneously (under the skin). It is a painless procedure, which takes place in approximately one hour, and has no negative side effects.

The Fetal Stem Cell searches out, detects and then attempts to repair any damage or deficiency discovered, as well as releases growth factors, which stimulate the body’s own repair mechanisms.

Medra’s Medical Director William C. Rader, MD. has treated over one thousand patients with Human Fetal Stem Cells, including children and adults suffering from many of mankind’s most devastating diseases.

You should have a look at the two videos listed there.

  1. The power of Fetal Stem Cells to reverse a child’s fatal disease. Watch Video
  2. Successful clinical results of Fetal Stem Cells in Spinal Cord Injury, Down’s Syndrome and Epilepsy. Watch Video

This is just the beginning.

In the coming decade, we will see more and more diseases obliterated by modern science.

Looking back to the past, we will see our current times as a barbaric period in human history. A black page. One that we’ll eagerly forget.

Update:

This may be a complete hoax. See the comment below, which quotes from www.quackwatch.com.

    “Medra, Inc.

    The chief American commercializer of embryonic stem cell therapy is William C. Rader, M.D., a psychiatrist in Malibu, California, who used to run Rader Institute clinics that specialized in treating eating disorders. For $25,000 (wired in advance), Rader will arrange for treatment at his Dominican Republic clinic. In the past, he has also done business under the names Mediquest Ltd., Czech Foundation, and Dulcinea Institute, Ltd. A message posted to the Yahoo StemCells group indicates that before he opened his own clinic (in 1997 in the Bahamas), Rader escorted patients to the Ukraine clinic.

    Like EmCell, Rader has claimed that his fetal stem cell treatment is not antigenic and has no side effects. In a 1997 document, he stated:

    Because fetal cells uniquely do not have antigenicity, they can be given to anyone with no reaction, no rejection, immunusuppressive drug therapy, or any side effects whatsoever. When a patient receives fetal fresh cell therapy (usually given intravenously over a few hours. . . ), the first action of cells is to stimulate the cells already present in the recipient’s system, making them more potent. Then they actually replace the recipient’s immune cells and, eventually engraft, which means they actually continually grow more fetal cells, resulting in a new and stronger immune system [15].

    With respect to cancer, Rader claims that his treatment enables chemotherapy and radiation to continue longer and virtually eliminate their side effects [15]. Medra’s “Factsheet” claims:

    The fetal stem cell searches out, detects and then attempts to repair any damage or deficit discovered, as well as releases growth factors, which stimulate the body’s own repair mechanisms. . . .

    A partial list of diseases includes:

    Alzheimer’s, Anemia, Autism, Brain damage, Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Depression, Diabetes, Diverticulitis, Epilepsy, Impotence, Immune Suppression, Leukemia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sickle Cell Anemia, Spinal Cord Injury, Stroke, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Ulcerative Colitis. . . .

    Rarely has a single treatment modality offered so much promise to those suffering from some of mankind’s worst afflictions [16].

    Rader also claims that by “strengthening the immune system, fetal cells offer prevention from acquiring multiple diseases, including cancer, where the fetal cells actually form an anti-cancer barrier which becomes another anti-aging factor.” [13] In order to substantiate such claims, thousands of people would have to be followed in a controlled trial that lasted many years. Stem cell technology has not existed long enough for any such study to have been done.

    Medra, Inc.’s “Factsheet” identifies Rader as medical director and “Prof. Albert Scheller, M.D., Ph.D.” as “chief scientific investigator.” Searching Medline, I found no publications one by either of them that are relevant to the claims they make for Medra’s treatment.”

    Thank you Bush administration for allowing quacks to flourish in the wake of regressive scientific policies. Ignorance as an investment strategy is alive and well. P.T. Barnum would be proud. A sucker may be born every minute but its when they’re dying that they can really be exploited.
