Stem cells and stem cell therapy! Many believe that stem cell therapy may lie somewhere in the future. That is not the case, and I am living proof that stem cell therapies are already available. They are repairing hearts, rebuilding livers, assisting in the cure of cancer and a multitude of other diseases. Popular broadcast and print media led me to believe that stem cell therapy is a long way off, held back by presidential order and political factions. I am one of the lucky ones. I found my way into a stem cell clinical trial that repaired my badly damaged heart and restored my life after I had come too close to death for comfort. There were only 24 of us in the Phase I stem cell clinical trial. We had all come for the same purpose; to ease the frightening pain in our chests and to try to stay alive. We were just a few of the tens of millions of people with similar problems who would ultimately benefit if the therapy under test proved to be successful. All 24 patients were very lucky to be selected for the pioneering stem cell clinical trial. In current medical practice, patients with such severe heart disease suffer episodes of severe heart pain (angina) and die slow deaths from congestive heart failure, their lungs filling with blood that their weakened hearts could not pump out to their bodies. We no longer face this grim prospect because of the amazing capabilities of stem cells. Uniquely, they can multiply themselves into large numbers and change themselves into any type of cells needed by the body, including brain cells, muscle tissue, and liver and kidney tissue.

About the Author:

The author was a senior research scientist for a major aerospace company and a researcher of rare earth minerals. He is an engineering graduate of The Pennsylvania State University. With the advent of his own illness, he turned his attention to the investigation of stem cell therapies. His study led him to therapies using stem cells for many serious illnesses. He sincerely hopes that the information presented will aid you, or a loved one, as it has him.

Review:

Mr. van Zyl has written a compelling story of his journey through the myriad paths of science to find a way to achieve an improved quality of life, after experiencing significant loss of heart function. His focus is not just on himself, as he carefully informs the reader about the many aspects of stem cell research and its possibilities for a variety of health problems. This book is an important contribution to the literature on stem cells. It should be highly recommended reading for all patients and members of the health care team who are working collaboratively to develop health care options for many chronic illnesses. It is a wonderful, sensitively written book that sends a message of optimism, which is needed during times of poor health. I commend Mr. van Zyl on telling his compelling personal story that may help to enrich the lives of others and give them hope. --M. P. Quigley

...the true-life story of author Bernard Van Zyl, who suffered from severe heart disease that could not be brought under control by conventional surgery or therapy. Yet an FDA-approved clinical trial transformed him from a dying invalid and gave him a new lease on life. His book does more than tell his story; it presents what he has learned about stem cell treatments, FDA-approved clinical trials for stem cell therapies that are currently helping thousands of people, and advice for readers who may be in need concerning how to locate and get into such clinical trials. Written in plain terms for readers of all backgrounds, this book discusses adult, embryonic, fetal, and umbilical cord stem cells, and is enthusiastically recommended for its inspirational message to never give up hope to anyone struggling with a medical problem. --Midwest Book Review

Fascinating read and eye opener. This book has given me a new perspective on Stem Cell research. Especially as it pertains to real science as opposed to rhetoric. The book presents an interesting case study about a specific kind of treatment, but it also delves into the research that is going on in the field of Stem Cells. It was informative and well researched. --John Brinker
