Consider Osiris for example. This company has a stem cell product, Grafix, that improves wound healing. Osiris stock soared when clinical trials showed that Grafix was much more effective than conventional treatments for diabetic-foot ulcers. Just imagine what a lifesaver such a product would be for someone who otherwise might have had to have their foot amputated. Here’s more about it.
And what about a heart-attack patient? So many times the heart is unable to heal itself and the patient’s life remains compromised. A company called NeoStem has a stem cell product to help such patients – AMR-001. Read about it:
What does this have to do with you, Living the CR Way? A lot. Stem cells are already very much a part of your life: Living the CR Way helps preserve your stem cells, so you will have them around longer (See: Calorie Restriction, the CR Way, is a stem cell diet). The CR Way also helps activate adult stem cells for tissue repair. According to research from Nobel Laureate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn and Dr. Dean Ornish – a healthful lifestyle may also lengthen your telomeres.
But what about stem cells and aging? We are jumpstarting research on that right now – starting with a teleconference, featuring stem cell experts from NeoStem. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 6, at 7:30 pm (ET).
The number of short telomeres is directly linked to the ability of adult stem cells to repair tissues. So we decided to hold a telomere teleconference, shortly after the stem cell conference. Dr. Jerry Shay, telomere expert, will discuss telomeres and the important role they play in aging on Saturday, November 9, at 11:00 am (ET).
The new gold standard for measuring telomere length, counting the number of short telomeres, is part of the DNA HACR study.
