Girl cured of brain cancer using adult stem cells


According to media report, a four-year-old girl in Spain who was treated with umbilical cord stem cells has been cured of a brain tumor. Alba Martinez was born in the province of Cádiz in 2007 and despite her good health, her parents say they decided to provider her with “life insurance” by means of preserving her umbilical cord in cold storage, report LifeSitenews.com.

At 22 months, Martinez began to suffer from a brain tumor and needed several intensive rounds of chemotherapy, which destroyed her blood cells, requiring her to receive infusions of stem cells from her umbilical cord. Today, 16 months after her stem cells restored her blood system, Martinez remains cancer free. Doctors will be able to certify her as “cured” after living a total of five years without a relapse.

The case adds to a growing number of successes using adult or umbilical cord stem cells in curing a variety of diseases.  In contrast with embryonic stem cell procedures, which destroy a human life in its earliest stages and which have never produced a single cure to date, adult or umbilical cord stem cell procedures are harmless to the donor and are proving to be a powerful weapon in the arsenal of modern medical treatments
