A new press release by Vitro Biopharma a CLIA, ISO9001, ISO13485 certified laboratory in Golden, Colorado, USA, has announced a remarkable COVID-19 patient recovery after being treated with expanded cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells.
The current global state of COVID-19 is looming over many. Daily news reports, Facebook posts & blog articles express a gloomy future outlook that can cause anxiety and stress among many.
However, encouraging news and data does sometimes find its way into the public sphere. Mesenchymal stem cells are beginning to show promise as a potential treatment for COVID-19.
A new press release by Vitro Diagnostics, Inc, dba Vitro Biopharma a CLIA, ISO9001, ISO13485 certified laboratory in Golden, Colorado, USA, has announced a remarkable COVID-19 patient recovery after being treated with expanded cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells.
The patient initially admitted into an emergency room with traditional COVID-19 symptoms. The patient had several comorbidities (more than one pre-existing medical condition) before hospital admission. Doctors initially used a standard treatment (yet still experimental) with convalescent plasma, but the patient's condition continued to worsen. While in the intensive care unit (ICU), the patient's liver and kidney functions began to fail. The patient also experienced sepsis and a stroke, cumulatively placing the patient in a coma for almost seven weeks.
The FDA authorized a study through an Investigational Drug Application (eIND) for emergency use of Vitro Biopharma's AlloRx Stem Cells® (cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells) as a therapeutic agent.
Following the treatment with Vitro Biopharma's culturally expanded cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells, the patient experienced resolution of multiple organ function failure, recovery from coma and restoration of neurological, pulmonary, liver, and renal function. (1) Resulting in the patient being removed from dialysis and assissted respiration machines.
The patient has not only gained the ability to eat, drink, and speak but has also regained motor function. The patient's inflammation levels have also dropped back down to normal. The patient has now been discharged from the intensive care unit and follows a physical therapy regime to improve mobility.
According to Dr. Jack Zamora, MD, Vitro Biopharma's Chief Medical Advisor:
"The miraculous recovery of our first critically ill COVID-19 patient using AlloRx Stem Cells brings great hope in these troubling times."
This recovery shows the exciting promise of mesenchymal stem cells' ability to treat inflammation and help resolve issues such as organ failure. The natural immunomodulatory capabilities of Mesenchymal Stem Cells may be among the most effective ways to reduce inflammatory cytokine damage in the lungs caused by COVID-19.
Dr. Jim Musick, CEO of Vitro Biopharma, states:
"We are pleased to have achieved this milestone based on a thorough understanding of the science of stem cell biology. While regeneration of destroyed cells is a common effect of stem cell therapy, stem cells also regenerate damaged cells by various regenerative processes that restore normal organ function. This case supports the further study of AlloRx Stem Cell® Therapy for COVID-19 patients and other conditions characterized by acute respiratory distress that are ultimately related to the inflammatory cytokine cascade neutralized by the cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells. "

Liver disease has had an increasing incidence and has become a troubling cause of death in more people each year. It accounts for over 33,500 deaths in the U.S. alone every year. Unfortunately, past treatments for damaged or diseased livers have been plagued with issues. Treatments are often rarely available, too expensive, or come with large costs of quality of life for patients. However, advances in stem cell treatments have created a new path toward regaining their health for patients with liver disease.
