Study uses new stem cell therapy in patients up to 19 days after stroke
Date:7/14/2011

ace was drooping," said the 67-year-old cosmetics developer. "We were just three blocks from a major trauma center. I had an angel with me because if it had happened two hours later, I would have been on an airplane."

Once back in Houston, she was referred to Savitz' study by Erin Furr-Stimming, M.D., UTHealth assistant professor of neurology, who treats her for Parkinson's disease.

While she doesn't know whether or not she received the stem cells in the double-blind study, she didn't hesitate to join the trial.

"I did a lot of research on stem cells online. I was very excited when I heard about the trial. I wanted to participate in the research for me, if possible, and for other people behind me," she said.

Savitz and his research team are studying other stem cell therapies for acute stroke, and these must be administered within a few days of the stroke. One of those, a safety and efficacy trial using a patient's own bone marrow stem cells administered intravenously, is funded by the National Institutes of Health. UTHealth researchers in the Department of Pediatric Surgery also are studying the use of stem cells for pediatric traumatic brain injury.
