“The Stem Cell Show”: Premiering on TalkRadio 790 KABC – Sundays @ 4pm, Hosted by Dr. Thomas A. Gionis, Surgeon-in-Chief, of the Irvine Stem Cell Treatment Center

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) March 28, 2015

Stem cells remain a fascination to the general public – and to the medical profession as well.

While millions of dollars are being spent by most States each year on stem cell research, and while the National Institute of Health (NIH) spends $ 1 Billion dollars per year on stem cell research (Estimates of Funding for Various Research, Condition, and Disease Categories (RCDC); (2015, February 5); http://report.nih.gov/categorical_spending.aspx), both the lay public and medical professionals continue to wonder: Where are we? How much have we learned? Are we making progress introducing stem cell therapy to the public?

Dr. Gionis will explore the many facets, intrigue and complexities of stem cells and stem cell therapy.

Dr. Gionis will have a frank and open discussion on the type of progress being made in advancing stem cell biology and therapy from the bench to the bedside. He will explore the current law regarding stem cell practice; both state law and federal law. The doctor will also investigate how new therapies – like stem cell therapies – get “approved” – and the role of the FDA, an IRB, and the role of the US Department of Health, Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) in the provision of such “approval.”

The doctor will explore the different types of stem cells with respect to their potential uses. And, he will look at new and emerging stem cell therapies which are being considered to address various medical infirmities such as Emphysema, COPD, Asthma, Heart Failure, Heart Attack, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, Muscular Dystrophy, Inflammatory Myopathies, and degenerative orthopedic joint conditions (Knee, Shoulder, Hip, Spine).

The format of The Stem Cell Show will be Questions and Answers, as well as Interviews of key thought leaders and researchers currently engaged in stem cell therapy – both nationally and internationally.

The spirit of The Stem Cell Show will be that of honest, open and vibrant discussion – in an effort to advance the public’s health, well-being, and the amelioration of devastating chronic disease. To get more information, visit TheStemCellShow.com or call 949-679-3889.
