Stem Cell Therapy for Optic Nerve Hypoplasia- American Doctor Isn't Blind To Fact That It Works

Are you or a loved one interested in receiving stem cell treatment? For free information, please fill out our treatment form or email me don@repairstemcells.org and just put TREATMENT in the subject box and the MEDICAL CONDITION in the message.
An American Opthamologist who has watched some of his patients improve from Adult Stem Cells isn't just sitting back and waiting for a study to say that the Repair Stem Cells work.

Dr. David Klein is going to China to meet with the Beike Biotech doctors and see their stem cell treatment.  Dr. Klein's patient, Cameron Petersen, had optic nerve hypoplasia, a condition in which the optic nerve in a child doesn't develop keeping the child blind.   Before Adult Stem Cells, there was no treatment for it:

From the article

Klein currently treats several patients who have undergone stem cell infusion in China. He became interested in learning more after seeing the progress of Cameron Petersen, the 2-year-old Port Charlotte toddler who underwent treatment last year.

Cameron suffers from optic nerve hypoplasia, a leading cause of blindness in children. The condition causes underdevelopment of the optic nerve and can lead to permanent blindness.

American doctors told Cameron's parents nothing could be done.

The family researched other options and found Stem Cells China (Beike Biotech), a research facility that has infused umbilical cord stem cells into patients with varying disabilities.

Cameron traveled overseas in August 2007 as part of a case study to treat his blindness.

The procedure consisted of four stem-cell infusions to Cameron's arm and the lumbar region of his spine.

By the third treatment, Cameron was standing on his own and crawling toward objects -- simple tasks he couldn't do before. Now, family members say he can see at least 10 feet, and is attending school.

"Cameron has made huge improvements," said Carol Petersen, the boy's grandmother. "There was nothing for Cameron before this treatment. Now, his world is limitless."

Big Kudos to Dr. Klein for having an open mind and wanting to see for himself.  Instead of ignoring the proof in the form of his once blind patients who can now see-  Dr. Klein didn't keep himself blind to the fact that the cord blood stem cells worked.

He could have waited 1o years for results of some random study to be published in the New England Journal of Medicine, but instead went to see for himself NOW.

Beike Biotech isn't the only company that opens its doors to doctors, I know Vescell in Thailand welcomes cardiologists to see their stem cell therapy for heart disease.  And I don't know this for a fact, but I imagine most of the stem cell treatment centers listed at the Repair Stem Cell Institute would be open to have visiting doctors come to see their stem cell therapy.  They are helping patients now and have nothing to hide.  If  you are a doctor reading this post, please email me at don@repairstemcells.org and I will put you in touch with the right person.

And as for Optic Nerve Hypoplasia and other Optic Nerve disorders, for more information, you can email Dr. Kara Zhang of Beike Biotech- Email: dr.zhang@beikebiotech.com
