RegenoCELL Announces Panama to be Country Where Patients Can be Treated With Its Autologous Stem Cell Therapy
NATICK, Mass., July 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — RegenoCELL Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCBB: RCLL) , a leader in adult stem cell therapy, is pleased to announce it is planning to open another state of the art facility in Panama for patients to be treated for congestive heart failure and peripheral artery disease with its autologous stem cell therapy.
The Company’s treatment for congestive heart failure when cleared for importation into Panama will be administered at the Hospital Sante Fe. Panama is a convenient location for patients living in the United States, Central and South America and when the treatment is cleared for importation will offer patients an additional location where the company’s autologous stem cell treatments will be permitted.
Since 2005, the Company’s stem cell therapy has successfully treated over 500 patients. The typical patient is suffering from congestive heart failure with no treatment options and 3 to 6 months to live. Over 5 years later patents initially treated are leading active and fulfilling lives.
About RegenoCELL Therapeutics, Inc.
RegenoCELL Therapeutics, Inc. is a stem cell therapy company using adult stem cells for autologous treatment of patients. The Company plans to obtain regulatory approval in the United States and the European Community to market its stem cell treatments. Through its wholly owned foreign subsidiaries, the company is marketing its stem cell treatments for transplantation in jurisdictions where autologous therapy is permitted.
There are therapies to treat congestive heart failure. But there comes a treatment point when the only option may be a heart transplant. Over 25,000 people are on the transplant lists but fewer than 2,500 receive one. The mean life expectancy of a heart transplant recipient is 8 years. A new therapeutic approach to treat this disease is needed.
Peripheral Artery Disease
The same RCLL adult stem cell treatment can be used to treat peripheral artery disease. In the United States, there are over 10 million people suffering from the lack of sufficient blood flow to the extremities with an equal number in Europe. This disease is most often experienced by diabetics in their toes and lower legs.
Since 2005, the company’s stem cell therapy has successfully treated over 500 patients. The typical patient is suffering from congestive heart failure with no treatment options and 3 to 6 months to live. Less than a half liter of blood is extracted from the patient and sent to the company’s subsidiary cell processing facility in Israel. There the patient’s stem cells are extracted and grown from tens of thousands into many millions. The stem cells are primed for angiogenesis or blood vessel formation. The patient then travels to a jurisdiction where autologous therapy is permitted and has the stem cells transplanted in a hospital in a catheterization laboratory in a procedure similar to angioplasty.
