Injecting Adult Stem Cells IV Doesn't Work (Unless You Have a Lung Problem)
A recent study has shown what seemed obvious, out of country stem cell outfits injecting adult stem cells IV fail to get those cells to the target organs being treated. These cells don't end up in the brain, liver, heart, joints, etc... they end up in the lungs. This is similar to the first pass effect seen in drug delivery (in that case it's the liver). Credible stem cell delivery is direct to the target organ or tissue. So if you want cells in the pancreas, you have to place them there. If you want cells in the joint, again you have to place them in the joint. Organizations doing this type of credible adult stem cell delivery include Regenerative Sciences and Regenocyte.
