WASHINGTON, May 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The International Center for Adult Stem Cell Education (http://www.Adultstemcelleducation.com) today announced that it has officially launched a global communications and government-political affairs program at the 3rd International Spinal Cord Injury Symposium, Olfactory Mucosa Autografts (OMA) and Rehabilitation to be held today, May 9th, through May 10th in Argostolli, Kefalonia, Greece. The ICASCE will be headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, with operational offices in Washington, D.C. (contact: Jack Wynn, 703-623-4288; firstname.lastname@example.org) and Bangkok, Thailand.
Donald Margolis, ICASCE Chairman and Founder (email@example.com; 215-764-6312), will be one of the guest speakers at the symposium. In 2003, Mr. Margolis became the FIRST person in the world to create a company to treat dying heart patients with adult stem cells. The guest of honor at the symposium will be pioneer Portuguese neuropathologist Dr. Carlos Lima, who has developed the successful OMA transplant surgical procedure for treating spinal cord injury by harvesting patients' own stem cells from their noses, by which those cells are then transplanted into the sites of the spinal cord breaks. ICASCE is a public affairs educational organization seeking to educate and inform the world about the research and treatment of diseases using adult stem cells.
According to Mr. Margolis, "ICASCE was recently (April '08) founded to educate the American public on the potential of adult stem cells for diagnosing, treating, curing and preventing disease. Thousands of people are dying unnecessarily each month because they don't know there are adult stem cell treatments available. The fact is that adult stem cells offer promising prospects for effective treatments and possible cures for people with heart conditions, spinal cord injuries, and a host of incapacitating diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's."
