The Lifesaving Success of Adult Stem Cells
Straight Talk on Life Issues


For years the debate over stem cell science has raged. At one time it was said that fetal stem cells would be the cure for nearly all ailments. Thirty years later fetal stem cells have not cured anything. Rather, adult stem cells are used to effectively treat many ailments and are currently saving lives. This week Brad and Victor are joined by experts Dr. David Prentice and Paul Wagle to discuss cures and adult stem cells.  


Stem Cell Research Facts

This is an educational web site created with the goal of connecting stem cell science, patients and stories. Our Success Stories come from people who have experienced a successful adult stem cell transplant. My Experience is a place where we give transplant recipients the time to share their personal experiences with a little more depth.

Stem Cell Connect is not a clinic, has no doctors and performs no stem cell transplants. We seek to connect those looking for information about the various types of stem cell research with the science and the experiences of those who’ve lived it. We welcome your feedback.

The Future of Stem Cells

Adult, Embryonic and now iPS cells; The field of stem cell research has come a long way in the last 20 years. Doctors, researchers and scientists explain what’s happening now and where the field is headed.

Midwest Stem Cell Therapy Center

The Midwest Stem Cell Therapy Center (MSCTC) is a research and development center, identifying adult stem cell applications for the treatment of various human healthcare conditions. The center is housed within the University of Kansas Medical Center campus in Kansas City, Kansas. The MSCTC is designed to serve as a hub of adult stem cell therapy, research and education in the State of Kansas and the adjoining region. We currently do not treat patients.

We are actively involved in human clinical trials that define the safety and efficacy of the adult stem cells we are investigating.

Adult Stem Cells Save Baby Girl

Regann Moore is a sweet, happy two-year-old who was diagnosed with Krabbe Disease days after she was born.  It destroys the protective coating over nerve cells in the brain and nervous system, which usually results in death at two years.  Her dad, Ferrell, thought his happy world had come to an end.  They rushed her back to the hospital where only an adult stem cell transplant would save her.

Sickle Cell Treatment with Adult Stem Cells

Sickle-cell is a debilitating and deadly disease which largely affects the Black community.  It deforms red blood cells into the shape of a sickle, which can get stuck in blood vessels, causing excruciating pain, strokes or damage of the organs.  Stricken patients can become severely anemic and prone to infections.  But there are three new gene therapies undergoing trials that show great promise…Listen to full story →


Adult Stem Cells Do It Again

My pro-life colleagues at Charlotte Lozier Institute have come out with another exceptional video on adult stem cells.  It features an amazing breakthrough on systemic scleroderma, a progressive and lethal disease.

Exciting Breakthrough with Adult Stem Cells

Promising research is currently being conducted with adult stem cells to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, using induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. These cells are capable of forming into any cell type in the body.

One particular study deserves your attention.

Dr. Jun Takahashi and his team at Kyoto University in Japan have begun a clinical trial that implants neurons from iPS cells into the brains of patients with Parkinson’s disease.
