    • Hi Melody,
      What a great question. I will now include in this page information on this. Thanks for asking! On any given clinical trials page on the clinicaltrials.gov website near the bottom is a “contact” person or person listed that you can email or call to inquire about enrollment. For example on this random trial on stem cells and stroke (http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00875654?term=stem+cells+AND+stroke&rank=1 ) it says:

      Contacts and Locations
      Please refer to this study by its ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT00875654

      Contacts
      Contact: Jean-Luc Cracowski, MD, PhD jlcracowski@chu-grenoble.fr

      So in that case one could email Dr Cracowski.

      Hope this helps!

      Paul


  3. Thanks! I had seen that, but I thought maybe they would only accept emails from a doctor, not a layman interested in the clinical trial for themselves.


  4. A family member had neurological lyme disease. He has lost his eyesight and uses a wheelchair all the time. He has suffered for 4 years, taken IV antibotics for 2 years plus a crate full of other drugs and treatments. Neuro-feedback, homeopathic, diet therapys including; sugar free, gluten free, all organic, meatless, raw…you name it diets! He had 2 co-infections but no longer, just testing positive for lyme by Igenex Lab. He sees Dr. Stryker and also went to Dr. Harris for treatment. My question is are there any reputable clinical trials in the US for stem cell research? AND do you have an opinion on whether stem cells can help in the case of lyme disease? I should note, his health has gone down hill very fast. Any information you may have about other studies for this horrible disease would be greatly appreciated.


    • Hi Ellen,

      This is an alternative approach, but has your family member tried using a Rife machine AKA a frequency generator to kill the Borrelia? I know a number of people who got partially well (but not entirely well) after ABX but improved using this type of device, including myself. I’m still dealing with some problems (fungus, mold, metals and adrenal problems, but my major symptoms are gone.
      Best, Laura


  5. It’s great to see so much information on stem cell trials. I just heard about Bioheart Inc.’s Phase I ANGEL Trial in Mexico where congestive heart failure patients exceeded expectations. 60% of participants are walking more than 65 meters further after 3 months of stem cell injection (http://bit.ly/18s9Mj0) – more promising results.


  6. Hi,
    I am Vietnamese, My father got stroke more than 10 years ago. But he just got worse about 3 year recently.

    I love him very much and keep finding the new treatment which would help him to get better . I was very sad when I found nothing would help him. I’ve read about “stem cell treatment in stroke” then I think that this might be a hope for my dad.

    My question is : Is there any chance for my dad to try Stem cell treatment? it is not available in Vietnam. But I really want to find a chance for him to get better.

    Anyone of you have answers then please help to response.

    You would contact me via my personal email : chi.vuongkim28@gmail.com

    Thank you.


  7. what about epilepsy? Why are you not trying harder to find out to solve this puzzle of disease what is taking the live out go me and so many other slowly? I what to be part of a clinical trial with stem cells transplant for epilepsy.


  8. I have myelomalacia at the site on my spinal cord where I had a spinal cord tumor removed – C4-C5 – I have some neurological symptoms which have developed: tingling in my feet , some numbness – could stem cells repair this? Where could I check for a reputable resource to contact??


  9. Will you have stem cell trials for Restless leg? It would be fantastic! I would do that Trial. I’m sick of this disease.


  10. Hi,
    My name is Angela and I am interested in finding a clinical trial with stem cells for the lungs for COPD, Do you have any knowledge that you can share with me


  11. I saw several questions asking about any clinical trials for stem cell therapy for COPD. Has anyone received any info about this? My husband, a pastor, really needs to find a treatment that will help more than just being prescribed inhalers…HELP, PLEASE!


  12. Hi Paul my baby boy has Leigh’s disease due to a mutation in complex V. Any chance you know of a stem cell trial for mitochondrial patients. He’s going downhill. Would so much appreciate a clue to find a chance to save his life.
    Thanks so much


  13. Is there clinical research for someone who has lost a thumb in an accident? We have an 18 year old in the family who is battling physical and psychological issues that has lost her left thumb from tip back to the first knuckle joint.


    • Hi Joyce,
      I can only imagine what she is going through. That is really tough.
      I’m not aware of the research on digit/limb replacement being very far along and I didn’t see any clinical trials listed on the .gov website for this. However, in a broad sense there is hope that stem cells may be able to be used to grow new parts of fingers, toes, and maybe even limbs. Unfortunately, I’m guessing we are 1-2 decades out from a chance of that becoming a practical reality though.
      Best wishes,
      Paul


  14. i M VERY INTERESTED TO PARTICIAPATE THH CLINICAL TRIALS FOR ALS
    CAN I KNOW HOW TO THANKS I M SUFFERING FROM BULBAR MND THANKS


  15. My uncle have Virus C disease and other hepatic disease i cant remember its name.

  16. Great blog!!
    I am very pleased to read your blog and loved your idea of searching a proper suitable clinic for the patient’s disease.
    Thanks for sharing your blog, that was really helpful to me.


  17. hi i live in Everett wa. i have had tinnitice for two yrs and it drives me crazy i can vollenture for stem cell reserch


  18. You are not logical on your link you can find by yourself :
    https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02241395?term=stem+cells+AND+cerebral+palsy&rank=16

    It’s clinical trail in India But
    Neurogen Brain and Spine Institute
    They are also selling stem cells treatments….

    As well as other examples I can give you:

    Beike Biotechnology
    Do clinical trails :
    https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/results?term=Beike+Biotechnology&Search=Search

    This clinic sell stem cells so haw we can deferring their trails and publications?


  19. One more example Panama :
    Autisme clinical trail :
    ( and they do many others)
    https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02192749?term=stem+cells+AND+autism&rank=2

    And they selling as well therapy

    So not it’s not logical for me:
    At the same time ok scientific world acsepte their clinical trails but so much in criticism with ” medical tourism “….

    So if you go at the same clinic to be a part of clinical trail you “recognized ” as a part of trail….
    But not if it’s not a part of trail ….( for example panama not more taking for autisme trail naw but childrens can go and get the same treatment as for trail but parents has to pay…) so in such case haw we name it ?


  20. I am 42yrs old,I have an 18inch Herrington rod attached to my spine for scoliosis when I was 13…suffering miserably now,my scoliosis has done nothing but get worse along with several diseases of the spine.. praying stem cells will progress rapidly and relieve a lot of us from our pain who suffer with bone disorders and diseases Etc..my son has epilepsy,it doesn’t run in the family but I did just read a report released today about how doctors tested spinal fluid for”anything unknown/not related to”the man’s DNA(or something along that line LOL but either way it was very interesting) and found a tapeworm in the brain resulting in a man’s mis diagnosis of another infection of the brain!! How exciting!!
