RESTEM, a biotechnology company, and Baptist Health South Florida announced on April 29, 2020 that three Wuhan virus patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) are the first to receive successful treatment in the U.S. with umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave them emergency approval to conduct this treatment.
Baptist Health physicians, Guenther Koehne, M.D., Ph.D., and Javier Pérez-Fernández, M.D., safely applied the new treatment to patients via intravenous infusions of RESTEM’s experimental umbilical cord lining-derived stem cells (ULSC).
The recipients of this treatment demonstrated a reduction of their oxygen requirement from 100% to less than 50% within days of receiving the infusion. In addition, they also witnessed a significant fall in levels of various crucial circulating inflammatory markers.
“The remarkable ability for these cells to mitigate inflammatory processes holds great promise for COVID-19 patients as well as for people with many other illnesses,” stated Guenther Koehne, MD, PhD, deputy director and chief of blood & marrow transplant at the Miami Cancer Institute. “These patients have improved their lung status much more quickly than patients treated with other experimental therapies,” continued Dr. Koehne.
“Our preliminary results show that therapy with these cells could be a game-changer in COVID-19,” proclaimed Dr. Javier Perez-Fernandez, pulmonologist and director of critical care at Baptist Hospital of Miami.
Baptist Health South Florida highlighted the following:
RESTEM’s cells are grown from umbilical cord tissue by a proprietary process and reduce inflammation, thereby allowing tissue regeneration and healing to occur.
Rafael Gonzalez, PhD, Senior Vice-president of Research and Development at RESTEM, declared “we are extremely excited with these preliminary results. The SUCCESS (Systemic Umbilical Cord Cells to Erase Syndrome Severity) Trial will identify COVID-19 ARDS patients that may best benefit from ULSC and will develop randomized placebo-controlled evidence regarding the ability of these cells to heal patients with this terrible disease.”
The FDA approved the RESTEM ULSC for testing their healing attributes in the autoimmune conditions of Polymyositis and Dermatomyositis. Additionally, patients will be able to participate in this clinical trial both at the Miami Cancer Institute and at Sanford Health in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Man Who Brutally Assaulted Michigan Nursing Home Resident Arrested, Charged, and Named
The brute’s name is Jayden Hayden.
The perpetrator of a horrific taped assault at a patient at a Michigan nursing home has been arrested, charged, and finally named.
Detroit Police arrested 20-year old Jayden Hayden of Ypsilanti, Michigan on Sunday morning. Hayden is being charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, larceny in a building and two counts of financial transaction device, steal/retain without consent.
The financial crimes relate to Hayden allegedly stealing the credit cards of 75-year old Norman Bledsoe.
The conscience of the nation had been shocked when video of Hayden brutally assaulting the senior citizen in a nursing home bedroom went viral. President Trump himself expressed his shock at the callous footage, in which Hayden repeatedly punched and beat the U.S. Army veteran.

Hayden has apparently uploaded videos online of other despicable assaults against senior citizens.
Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy expressed her resolve to hold Hayden criminally accountable for the heinous crime.
“The alleged actions of this defendant are truly and uniquely disturbing. We must be able to trust our loved ones in specialty care facilities. I truly hope that the facts of this care are one of a kind.” Hayden was arraigned in court on Sunday morning.
New facts of the case seem to suggest that Hayden himself was a short-term resident of the Westwood Nursing Center, as opposed to an employee of the facility, which some had speculated.
Hayden seems to express racist and anti-white beliefs in some of his social media uploads, stating that he believes that “black people are meant to rule the earth.” However, it doesn’t appear as if local authorities are treating the savage, cowardly assault as a hate crime at this point.
