Stem Cell Treatments for First Responders in the News

erved (frozen) and last for decades. They can be used later in life if one faces diseases such as blood cancer, including leukemia, or even radiation exposure.

It is broadly accepted by experts in the medical field that the only treatment that can save an individual with fatal radiation exposure is a stem cell transplant. If the transplant is performed within 7-10 days of exposure, cure rates can be high for this procedure. Stem cell transplantation has been used successfully in Japan following the Tokaimura nuclear reactor accident in 1999 when a serious mistake allowed a nuclear reaction to occur outside the reactor core. In that case, three workers suffered severe ARS; one received a cord blood transplantation and two received stem cell transplantations.

Stem cell transplantation has improved since then with the advent of autologous engraftments. Prior therapies required donation of stem cells, typically from close relatives to assure a close match. But, even then, grafts were frequently rejected. Autologous transplants take stem cells from the patient, ensuring a perfect match. This procedure only works if one has cells of their own to work with. In cases of severe ARS, patients may have much of their stem cells destroyed.

Dr. Robin L. Smith, NeoStem's Chairman and CEO said, "One solution is for people at risk of exposure to prepare by collecting and storing their stem cells before they are exposed, in a safe place until they need them. This is part of NeoStem's core mission: the collection and storage of adult stem cells for those who are at risk and need added protection. NeoStem's network includes facilities across the US to collect the cells and, through our Progenitor Cell Therapy subsidiary, we own and manage two state of the art current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) storage facilities, enabling safe storage with quick access should the cells ever be needed. Since 2000, we have completed over 33,000 cell therapy procedures, stor
