A new topical treatment is making the news (albeit low-key) for its potential in spinal cord injury recovery. TetraStem is created by Phillips Company and reportedly converts your own cells into stem cells. According to the press release, which details the ongoing recovery of a young woman named Miranda, Phillips Co. is interested in finding others who would like to be involved in the trials process for TetraStem.
Research like this tends to take a backseat to traditional pharmaceuticals, in part because your personal stem cells belong to you and cannot be patented.
Something to think about!
