Re: Cord Blood and Cerebral Palsy
I am a physician/scientist in Texas: The results at Duke University are modest at best. Remarkable results are always possible (as seen in two cases amongst dozens of children); but other, more probable factors will most likely explain these results. "Improvement" from the treatment can take months. Most importantly, remember that there are serious risks--such as potential liver damage--so you will need to accept those risks, as with any new treatment. I hope you have the sense to avail yourself of conventional therapies; there are alternative medical treatments which can at least (if not do more than) provide symptom relief. I pray you have the means to explore all these avenues; for, in the end, no one knows what will work. And I feel compelled to add this: I had a special needs child and acceptance of her fate ultimately gave me more peace than chasing false hope.
