Global Stem Cells Group Teams With CordónVida Servet Stem Cell Bank and Clinic to Organize the First International Symposium on Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine

Global Stem Cells Group announced plans to team with Servet CordónVida Stem Cell Bank and Clinic in Santiago, Chile to organize the First International Symposium on Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine. The symposium will be held at the InterContinental Hotel in Santiago Sept. 26, followed by an intensive, two-day hands-on training course in stem cell harvesting, isolation and applications Sept. 27 and 28 at the CordónVida Clinic.

Global Stem Cells Group and the Servet CordónVida Stem Cell Bank Clinic of Chile will be teaming up to organize the First International Symposium on Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine in Santiago, Chile Sept. 26, 27 and 28. The three-day symposium will be followed by an intensive hands-on training course at the Servet Clinic for medical practitioners interested in learning techniques for harvesting stem cells for in-office medical therapies.
Symposium organizers plan to initiate a dialogue between researchers and practitioners to bridge the gap between “bench” science—research science that is exclusively conducted in a lab setting—and stem cell therapies delivered in the physician’s office.

The first-of-its-kind conference will host some of the world’s leading experts on stem cell research and therapies. Servet CordónVida General Manager Mauricio Cortes, Ph.D. says that Santiago is the perfect launching pad for the event, as awareness and increasing demand for stem cell services has swept the South American country’s healthcare market over the past decade.

“The use of human stem cells in medical therapies has attracted major scientific and public attention because stem cells are pluripotent, meaning they have the ability to differentiate into all body tissues,” Cortes says. “Knowing this, the possibilities for regenerating damaged or diseased tissue where no effective treatments existed before opens a new world of possibilities to patients and healthcare providers.
“We’re very excited to participate in this important conference.”

Servet CordónVida is a private umbilical cord blood bank that harvests and stores the hematopoietic-rich blood stem cells found in all newborns’ umbilical cords after birth. The hematopoietic tissue is responsible for the renewal of all components of the blood (hematopoiesis) and has the ability to regenerate bone marrow and restore depressed immune systems.

Umbilical (UCB) stem cells offer a wealth of therapeutic potential because they are up to 10 times more concentrated than bone marrow stem cells. In addition, UCB cells have a generous proliferative capacity with therapeutic potential that is very similar to embryonic stem cells, without the ethical debate associated with embryonic stem cell research and use.

Perhaps most significant is the fact that UCB cells are the purest adult stem cells available, coming from newborns who have not been exposed to disease or external damage. Many parents today are utilizing cord banks like Servet CordónVida to store their newborn’s UCB cells safely for future medicinal use if the need arises.

“Thanks to advances in stem cell science, we can preserve an infant’s stem cells at birth and store them safely for his or her future,” says CordónVida Director Javier Sáez. “Hopefully, this symposium will be the first of many like it in the future of regenerative medicine, because the more we discuss what we know about the power of stem cells to heal, the closer we get to sparing our patients from needless suffering when the cure is right before us.”

Global Stem Cells Group and Servet CordónVida represent a growing global community of committed stem cell researchers, practitioners and investors whose enthusiasm is a direct result of the hundreds of diseases and injuries that stem cell therapies are curing every day, and the list keeps growing. Global Stem Cell Group’s First International Symposium on Stem Cell Research and Regenerative Medicine will host experts from the U.S., Mexico, Greece, Hong Kong and other regions around the globe who will speak on the future of regenerative medicine and share experiences in their field of specialty. The Global Stem Cells Group Symposium is seeking to open lines of communication and cooperation, explore new and exciting techniques in stem cell therapy, and create an environment of education and learning.

The symposium will be held at the Santiago InterContinental Hotel. For more information on the symposium and the lineup of guests and speakers already confirmed, visit the First International Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine website.

Bioheart, Inc. and Global Stem Cells, Inc. Announce New Clinical Site in Mexico

Bioheart, Inc., in collaboration with Global Stem Cells, Inc. have initiated a new clinical site in Cozumel, Mexico.

Bioheart Inc., a biotech company focused on the discovery, development and commercialization of autologous cell therapies, has announced that it has initiated a new clinical site in collaboration with Global Stem Cell Group, Inc. in Cozumel, Mexico. The two companies successfully treated their first congestive heart failure patient at the new clinical site last week, using Bioheart’s AdipoCell (adipose derived stem cells).

The therapy involved the use of stem cells derived from the patient’s own fat (adipose tissue) obtained using liposuction. The recovered stem cells were injected into the patients’ heart with Bioheart’s MyoCath® needle injection catheter which allows for introduction of the cells directly into the heart without invasive surgery.

Rafael Moguel, M.D., Head of the Cardiac Program at the Centro Medico de Cozumel, was the treating interventional cardiologist for the Bioheart therapy procedure.
“Our center is very excited to participate in the cutting edge programs at Bioheart,” Moguel says. “We can offer new hope to patients suffering from debilitating diseases by utilizing regenerative medicine, and delivering them non-invasively into the heart.”

The MyoCath catheter was introduced using a radial artery approach, the first such documented stem cell case using this delivery method. The benefit of a radial artery approach is that it does not require the patient to lie flat for up to six hours, as in a femoral artery approach. Patients are able to sit up, walk and eat immediately following the procedure, and the risk of internal bleeding is eliminated.
Bioheart and Global Stem Cells Group have designed several different protocols to be utilized at the center in Cozumel, offering treatments to patients for a variety of different indications.
