The Controversial Stem Cell Transplant Surgery a Failure, Patient died

A New Zealand woman who travelled to China for stem cell treatment died on Thursday night in the arms of her husband, Rein. She was 66. //

Willie Terpstra, a New Zealander, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in 2004.She left her home in Rotorua 18 months ago to have a foetal cell tansplantation operation in China.

Motor neurone disease leads to the loss of voluntary muscle activity that aids speaking, breathing and swallowing.

The Chinese operation involved the transplantation of around two million cells from an aborted foetus into Mrs Terpstra's brain and was performed by surgeons at Beijing West Hill Hospital.

This operation is banned in many countries including New Zealand. After the operation, Mrs.Terpstra showed signs of improvement.

Within days her breathing, talking and eating improved.But her progress did not last long and the symptoms returned and deteriorated and she died on Thursday night.

Mrs.Terpstra's body was at the family home and her funeral would be held in Rotorua on Wednesday.
