New Stem Cell Therapy Approaches Have Proven Effective in Treating COVID-19

Despite many advances in the treatment of the COVID-19 virus, no specific treatment remains for patients with infectious diseases. This is especially true for patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) who require mechanical ventilation support. However, Georgina Ellison Hughes, a member of the UNESCO International Society for Aging and Diseases (ISOAD), found mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are effective in regulating multiple mechanisms and can restore immune system homeostasis in COVID-19 patients. MSC’s unique and strong immunomodulatory properties make it an excellent candidate cell type for the treatment of COVID-19.

In February 2020, an international team showed that injections of MSC into seven COVID19 pneumonia patients improved symptoms and recovery time compared to three placebo-treated patients.

Researchers are now advancing these findings showing that MSC is effective in regulating multiple mechanisms and can restore immune system homeostasis in patients with COVID-19.

King’s College London Study

In their latest study, the team completed a randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled phase II clinical trial of MSC injections. The results of clinical t...
