Stem Cell Therapy Study to Prevent Amputations Underway in KC
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Stem cells hold great promise for treating and curing disease. A Kansas City woman is the first in our area to enroll in a study of stem cell therapy for severe vascular disease in the legs.
FOX 4 Medical Reporter Meryl Lin McKean says the hope is that the therapy using the patient’s own stem cells will prevent amputations.
