Asian Football Confederation Meeting

The Melbourne Stem Cell Centre General Manager and Donor Study supervisor, Mr Michael Kenihan, attended the Asian Football Confederation meeting in Chengdu China in March 2019.

This meeting is attended by all of the member federations in the Asian region which spreads from the middle east to the far east and include the worlds most populous nations, (China, India, Indonesia etc)

He was invited to present about stem cells and presented “Stem Cells the next frontier”. His presentation covered our most recently published trial “Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cell therapy in the treatment pf knee osteoarthritis: a randomised controlled trial”. This study was published in the journal “Regenerative medicine”. We will soon have two year outcome data and expect the improvement to be maintained.

This study is important in many ways and validates what we have observed now over many patient treatment in the last three years.

We have just completed our donor cell trial treatments May 2019. Exciting times ahead!!!

It was also gratifying to have our received so enthusiastically at an international forum.

We will update you again soon about the successes we demonstrate with our research.
