Historic Breakthrough in Fighting Children's Batten Disease as China Stem Cells Give New Lease on Life to 6 Year Old California Boy
Date:1/30/2008

BEIJING, Jan. 30 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Tiantan Puhua Hospital Stem Cells Center ( http://www.stemcellspuhua.com ), the worldwide leader in using stem cells to effectively treat Parkinson's and other neurological diseases, announced another historic first in successfully using stem cells to improve and potentially prolong the life of 6 year old California native Blake Dell'Aringa. Blake was a normal, happy toddler until last year when diagnosed in America with what has been widely thought an untreatable genetic disorder occurring primarily in children called "Batten Disease". Due to a missing gene, the disease causes sudden, rapid degeneration of the nervous system and always ends in premature fatality, often between the ages of 6 and 12. After undergoing Tiantan Puhua's comprehensive stem cell therapy program in Beijing, Blake's family is now reporting a significant reversal in the recent swift deterioration of Blake's motor skills, giving real hope that he will live long enough for a scientific cure to be found. More on Blake can be found at http://www.stemcellspuhua.com/s71.html .

Blake's mother Dawn said, "Our world was just rocked when Blake was diagnosed with Batten Disease. Now, every second of his life is meaningful to us. Going all the way to China wasn't our first choice, but it was almost our only choice and definitely the right one as Blake has had clear improvement since he's returned. Every day he's stronger and stronger than before. Tiantan Puhua has given Blake real hope."

Blake's parents decided to bring him to Beijing after first being allowed to participate, but then later rejected just days before commencing treatment, in one of America's only federally authorized stem cell trials in the State of Oregon. As is often the case in the West, patients like Blake can be blocked or delayed for political reason
