October 8, 2007 - Beijing, CHINA 

Neural Stem Cell Therapy Research Center, the world´s leading center for effective treatment of Parkinson´s disease using adult retinal stem cells, today here announced that four more international patients returned home from China with a significant reduction in their debilitating Parkinson´s disease symptoms. These success stories clearly demonstrate stem cells can effectively be used to treat afflictions like Parkinson´s in addition to many other neurological disorders. More details and videos of the four patients´ progress can be found at www.chinastemcell.com.cn
While debates over stem cells continue in many countries, Western clinical trials have so far found the use of adult retinal stem cells to be the best chance for Parkinson´s sufferers to gain a better quality of life. Chinese neurologists at China stem cells medical center are among those worldwide leading the implementation of this cutting edge science through safe and effective treatment. Following Penny Thomas of Hawaii, who benefited from the hospital´s stem cell treatment a year ago, four more patients have now come home to better lives in the United States and Europe after treatment at Stem cells medical center in Beijing.
Jane Edwards, a 55 year old United Kingdom citizen, saw comparatively dramatic improvement in her debilitating Parkinson´s symptoms almost immediately after a minimally-invasive injection that implanted millions of high quality adult hRPE (human Retinal Pigment Epithelial) cells. The procedure utilizes the latest stereotactic technology. This cutting edge three-dimensional imaging system assists doctors in locating the most appropriate area of the brain or other nerve center to implant the cells. Medical center´s several weeks treatment program for Parkinson´s sufferers also often includes a nutritious intravenous (IV) cocktail that protects the implanted stem cells, personalized physical therapy, and even complementary traditional Chinese medicine. This all takes place in a medical center whose doctors and staff function under fully international standards. More details on Jane´s treatment can be found at www.chinastemcell.com.cn
"I hope everyone suffering from this terrible disease and seeking hope will examine the evidence, and will consider coming to China to seek improvement through these great doctors,"said Jane. "Those in the West that urge caution for Parkinson´s sufferers who consider going to Beijing, with no evidence to say why, simply aren´t going through what I have been going through," she said.
Jane was diagnosed with Parkinson´s in the spring of 2001, reaching stage three of the disease (on the Hoehn/Yahr scale) as her symptoms became progressively worse just before the treatment. Before coming to China, Jane could not do the simple things in life on her own that most of us take for granted, such as turning over in bed, getting up from a chair, dressing herself, putting on shoes, or writing?the last of which she had given up more than two years ago. She also could not turn her neck and her speech was becoming increasingly slow. Within 6 weeks after the treatment, almost all of Jane´s Parkinson´symptoms were greatly reduced. Jane can now write again, turn over in bed, dress by herself, and even ride a bicycle.
Linda Rouen, 59, from the United States, was diagnosed with Parkinson´s 5 years ago. In 2007, Linda decided to come to China for stem cell treatment to seek solutions for her deteriorating condition. To control her symptoms, Linda previously took a high dosage of medications every 2 hours.
"I was a watch keeper. I used to watch the clock all the time. After time, I stopped swimming and avoided other physical and social activities because I never knew when the medications would wear off," she said. "Without heavy medication, I could hardly get dressed, get out of bed, or take a shower on my own."
Linda´s most notable change after the surgery and treatment at China stem cells medical center was her first peaceful full night sleep in five years. Within 5 weeks after the stem cell implantation, most of Linda´s symptoms gradually went away, allowing her medication to be significantly reduced.
At the time of this release, two more international Parkinson´s sufferers report having significant improvement from the treatment at Tiantan Puhua Hospital. American David Brown, 64, reports better balance, more fluid movement, and the disappearance of ´´freeze-ups´´ after his treatment. As well, sixty-five year old US citizen James Devlin, from Hawaii, shows significant reduction in his tremors, is feeling increased energy and muscle strength, is getting more sleep, and much more relief from the anxiety and depression he suffered for many years. The experience of both patients is recorded at www.chinastemcell.com.cn
