During our recent trip to the UK we finally made the first important step towards stem cell therapy for Tomas.
His first milk tooth was extracted by Absolute Dental in Prestwich and immediately placed in a special temporary tooth storage pack.
We then drove to Bioeden in Daresbury in Warrington to deliver the tooth to our contact, Ian Clarke, at Bioeden for stem cell extraction and replication.
After years of research into this area of treatment and planning of the first stages, we have recently received confirmation that the stem cell processing has been completed successfully!
The stem cells will now be stored in the special storage facility at Bioeden until the research into stem cell treatment for the brain have progressed sufficiently to enable successful treatment for Tomas .
We have also donated some of the additional stem cells obtained from the extraction and replication processes to help the research.
