Hong Kong LEmed, the specialist stem cell and laser therapy research and distribution group, announced today that it is supporting ALS research which uses Adult Stem Cells, the only stems cells to successfully complete clinical trials for incurable diseases.
 
Wan Chai, Hong Kong, September 15, 2014 -- Hong Kong LEmed (Leading Edge Medical Ltd.), the specialist stem cell and laser therapy research and distribution group, announced today that it is supporting ALS research which uses Adult Stem Cells, the only stems cells to successfully complete clinical trials for incurable diseases.
 
In view of the enormous amount of attention the ice bucket challenge has brought to ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, LEmed is excited to be at the forefront of the revolutionary stem cell treatment technology used to fight this horrific disease.

Considering the fact that no effective long-term treatment exists for patients with ALS as well as a long list of neuro-inflammatory and neuro-degenerative disorders, LEmed has encouraged one of its lead doctors, Professor Shimon Slavin of Tel Aviv, to press forward with his adult stem cell technology.
 
Dr. Slavin is one of the only stem cell MD's in the world who has been successfully treating no-hope patients with a large variety of life threatening malignant and non-malignant indications for more than 20 years. The current research efforts in Tel Aviv is directed towards developing new approaches for regenerative medicine focusing on the use of multi-potent mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) derived from either bone marrow or fat tissue (the patient own cells), or using unrelated placenta & cord tissue MSCs, derived from healthy newborn babies.
 
He has documented how, using new innovative technologies, that MSCs from all sources can be targeted to any part of the central nervous system by a non-invasive extra corporeal technology based on the use of low energy acoustic shockwave therapy. In parallel, they attempt to activate undifferentiated MSCs by multi-channel low energy laser light therapy, all of which are theoretically potentially beneficial to ALS patients and most likely to other indications of neuro-inflammatory and neuro-degenerative disorders.
 
The future goal is to use differentiated MSCs, both autologous and readily available allogeneic off-the-shelf, using differentiated placenta & cord tissue derived MSCs that were also shown to secrete neurotrophic factors that may help regulate the function of neurons in the brain and also play an important role in repairing or replacing damaged neurons. Such factors may also be therapeutically effective by activation of locally residing multi-potent stem cells located throughout the central nervous system, which otherwise do not respond to the body need.


LEmed strongly recommends supporting these research efforts that are the most promising by an experienced team that has already treated several hundreds of patients with ALS and a variety of other neuro-degenerative disorders and autoimmune diseases, thus far with undifferentiated MSCs. Clinical application of the next generation of cellular therapy depends on additional research to confirm the advantage of targeted, activated and also differentiated MSCs in comparison with current therapeutic approach based on the use of undifferentiated MSCs enriched in vitro.  Considering the genetic background of patients with familial type ALS and more subtle molecular abnormalities even in patients considered as sporadic ALS, and the practical need to have available readily available cells for treatment of patients with rapidly progressive disease, much attention will be given in the future to the use of young and normal MSCs derived from placenta & cord tissue of normal newborn babies of consenting mothers
 
Donations should be addressed to CordCure Ltd in Tel Aviv, Israel, earmarked for ALS Research.

Millions of Americans took the challenge. They doused themselves with ice water and sent a check to the ALS Association to help fund the fight against the almost always deadly disease. Now, there is hope for a treatment, coming out of Isreal.
 
The treatment is called NurOwn, and it was developed by the Isreali biotechnology company BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics. The treatment harvests a patient’s stem cells from their bone marrow, treats the cells with chemicals until they grow new neurons, then injects them into that patient’s spinal fluid. Researchers hoped NurOwn would slow the progression of ALS, and it appears to have done that in several Isreali patients.
 
That success in Isreal has led to Phase II clinical trials at three locations in the United States. Those in the American ALS community — like Tanner Hockensmith, with the Texas Chapter of the ALS Association — are watching these trials closely.

“It’s an exciting, new, scientific breakthrough that we haven’t really seen, and there have been a lot of advances about how to come up with stem cells, looking past embryonic stem cells, going to adult stem cells and regrowing them for trials and treatments, so there are still a lot of exciting things happening.”

Hockensmith says any time there are American trials of an ALS treatment, it’s another shot on goal for those struggling against the disease, and he says, “The more shots we can get on goal, as far as attempts at trials like this, is the best, in the long run, for ALS patients.”
 
Perhaps as exciting as NurOwn’s potential as a treatment for ALS patients is its potential for treating many other diseases. Hockensmith says, “If this gets traction, it isn’t just good news for ALS patients. There are things in this that could possibly help other neurologic diseases, as well, so it’s a win-win for everybody when things like this get approved.”
 
So NurOwn may offer hope to people with diseases like Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis.
The U.S. trials of NurOwn start this fall, and will end in 2016.
