StemCell Pharma, Inc. Treatment Center To Open In Las Vegas



10/19/2005 5:09:02 PM

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 27, 2005--StemCell Pharma Inc. announces the opening Oct. 3, 2005 of the StemCell Treatment Center of Las Vegas, where the placenta/stem cell implant developed by Alfred T. Sapse, M.D. (ret), will be used. A number of patients with MS, early Alzheimer's, and Retinitis Pigmentosa have been registered already with the center. The procedure is carried out privately in a physician's office after local anesthesia and consists of inserting a placenta/stem cell implant, developed by a proprietary technique. The procedure lasts less than half an hour. Based upon extensive clinical trials, carried out in the past, the effectiveness of the placenta implant lasts up to 12 months to be renewed thereafter. By contrast, interviews with U.S. patients, who traveled abroad to take the stem cell treatment (at exorbitant prices), indicate that their effectiveness, sometime very impressive, wears out after two-three months. That seems to be the case with Roy Horn of Siegfried and Roy fame, who was badly mauled by a white tiger two years ago, and unable to walk due to a brain injury, who had "successfully completed" a treatment in a special stem cell clinic in Germany, and yet will have to go back in two-three months to continue the treatment.
