Main Document

Bio-Communications Research Institute at the Center for the Improvement of Human Functioning International Reports Stem Cell Discovery.

A study published in the peer reviewed Journal of Translational Medicine demonstrated administration of Stem-Kine, a commercially available nutritional supplement, significantly elevated levels of two types of stem cells in circulation.

Stem cells act as "repair cells" in the body, which circulate and are on patrol for damaged or old tissue. Numerous health conditions ranging from Alzheimer's to migraine headaches, to heart disease are all correlated with a lower number of stem cells in circulation. The current paper suggests for the first time that a significant increase in circulating stem cells can be achieved by means of nutrition.

"The focus of our Institution for the past 35 years has been assisting the body to heal itself using natural, non-toxic approaches, which have provided benefit for patients with degenerative diseases. Today's findings support, at a cellular level, how some of our interventions may be functioning," said Dr. Nina Mikirova, lead author of the study.

The study examined 18 healthy volunteers who received oral Stem-Kine in the morning and at night. Circulating endothelial progenitor cells, which are involved in healing blood vessels, and hematopoietic stem cells, which produce various healing growth factors, were significantly increased.

"We congratulate Dr. Mikirova and her team of Industry and University collaborators for applying the objective scientific method to the area of nutritional modulation of health." Said Brian Riordan, CEO of CIHFI. "It is the Center's vision to integrate patient observations with detailed cellular and molecular biology in order to provide the best care for our patients."
