The patients who got stem cell therapy showed remarkable reduction of the symptoms such as lalopathy and paralysis of arms and legs and also showed satisfactory progress to be able to do light exercise. Furthermore, their linguistic ability, visual function and memory have increased and have not shown remarkable deterioration in cognitive function.
According to the result, Chairman KYE HO LEE of STC Life ( www.stclife.com ) revealed his strong ambitions to push harder to attract overseas patients and domestic patients with hard-to-cure diseases in the future.
It is proven that Mesenchymal stem cell therapy can reduce the symptoms with no adverse effects.
