Treating Arthritis in the Knee
WHAT WILL IT TAKE to bring a less painful and less expensive solution than total knee replacement to patients suffering from crippling arthritis?
Remarkable results in more than 3,500 horses and 1,500 dogs already point the way.
These animals, treated with their own stem cells over the past five years, have shown great improvement in mobility and evidence of significant pain relief.
While they cannot talk to us, their behavior tells the story. Removal of stem cells from their fat and injection into their joints takes mere moments, yet led to improvement lasting months in many cases.
The Cell Therapy Foundation is working to find support for testing this therapy in people who are suffering the pain of arthritis and whose only hope until now would be joint replacement.
IT WILL TAKE $700,000 to conduct the first trial of this therapy in humans.
IT WILL TAKE 20 patients with arthritis in their knees who want to avoid surgery.
IT WILL TAKE YOU. The patients are waiting. The clinical investigators are ready. The rest is up to YOU. Please contribute. Some whom you love, and many others, are depending on your generosity for a chance to walk pain free once again.
