Baptist Health Doctors Announce Successful Treatment of Wuhan Virus Patients with Stem Cells

Published

on

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.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
