    What did Stem Cell Researcher have to say about adipose cells? It's like a plum fell in your lap! Do tell.

    Ann, I was thinking the same thing when I read Cherie's post. Not fair Cherie - you must share everything you learned.

    I am just reporting in as Gary ordered.

    I will be offline from the computer for quite a while. Moving this room around for new carpet, and taking care of some medical issues. I have more specialists than I can count on two hands. I'll return when I can.

    All of you my good friends, please be well and don't overdo things. I won't be reading here, or anywhere. I'll catch up when I return. I'm not leaving here forever, don't think that. I just have so many things on my calendar, and so many doctors to see, labs to catch up with, and many body parts that need fixing.

    Sally, please pass on the info to any other peeps. Thank you.
    Take care..later then
    carry on..
    Lady


    May happiness be at your door. May it knock early, stay late, and leave the gift of good health behind.

    He's skeptical. After being closeted solely with Embryonic stem cell lines for more than 20 years, he does not understand the technology. I told him about Peg before her procedure and he emailed his friend Arnie who does Mesenchymal stem cells (adult rather than embryonic). Arnie said that he had heard of success stories in cosmetic areas such as moving fat cells from one part of the body to another to fill in areas of atrophy. Arnie also said that what Peg had done "made sense" in that the body does not reject its own cells but was not sure how the cells were treated to heal the CNS. So...Mike, on my suggestion, contected stemGenex and Adistem and they told him about this conference which fit nicely into his travel schedule.

    He also did not know about the CCSVI theories and was intrigued by them. He said he had a whole line of myelin cells growing but no one interested in doing research on an animal model which was needed if this technique was to go to the FDA. He is willing to overnight some of these cells to any researcher that is willing to try them out on an animal model and see if they work so if you know of any clinics or docs who would be interested in this, send me a PM with contact info and I will put the two of them together.

    He just seems almost melancholy about not having had a breakthrough yet that can help (in more than theory) those of us with diabetes or heart disease or MS. He is open and hopeful going to the adipose cell conference. As I get his impressions I promise to pass them on. Heck! I offered to go to CA and be his guinea pig with David's blessing. He is just not there for human trial with all the years put into this area of research. Said he has gotten it to work in animal models but not found researchers with the cash to take it to human testing level. He is now working with a large group in Israel that is ready to begin human trials on his cell lines.

    Best to you, Lady, and I'm taking this as a written promise that you are taken care of what needs taken care of and will be back.

    Cherie, among us we have a thousand cats. Not a good animal model, I guess. Ornery animals.

    Your news is incredible! Everyone who has an MS Specialist who also does research knows at least 1 person who might help connect this guy. And you have many connections and then there is Stuart!

    Hi Virginia!

    Lady, you'll certainly be missed here! Good luck with moving things around and the new carpet--and with the medical issues too.

    Some years ago they decided to put a new carpet in my apartment. Moving things around and coordinating the whole experience was very time- and energy-consuming. I completely understand why you feel overloaded just now.

    Hello everyone.
    Been a bit under the weather the past while. Nothing major, but just overall blah. Must be the change in seasons...I had a few health issues and still not sure what took place with my heart...had ECG & Holter monitor then Dr. ordered Echo right away after results...I have had the echo done on Wed...but can't see my doctor until next Friday for results. I'm sure !t's all ok, but best to be safe than sorry.

    Other than that, all is well in my neck of the woods...(both necks of the woods)lol I am in Canada at the moment, Hubby needed to renew his passport, and we will head back to NJ after my dr. appt. next week (I hope). I want to be there for Thanksgiving and of course, Black Friday! I already have my Christmas shopping done, but my husband is a real SHOPPER, and I usually make a list, send him out and I stay at home and cook a nice meal for when he gets home! That's the best way to shop!!! lol

    Well, folks, I hope everyone is doing well. My grandbaby is growing so fast (16 months now) and is absolutely a delight! We are going to get our grandson in March!!! My d-i-l is due March 9th and they found out just this week that it's a boy! YAY. I am not sure I know how to shop for a boy...I'll have to practice!

    Take care all,
    Lorraine:)
