They performed regenerative therapies with stem cells on Yaracuyan children

IVIC teams together with traumatologists from the “Niño Jesús” Pediatric Hospital used cultured mesenchymal stem cells to care for 3 minors

On July 5 and 6, a specialized team from the Cellular Therapy Unit of the Venezuelan Institute of Scientific Researchs (IVIC) and traumatologists from the “Niño Jesús” Pediatric Hospital in Yaracuy, performed regenerative treatments using cultured mesenchymal stem cells in patients with Congenital Pseudoarthrosis of the Tibia.

This time, the treatment was applied to two children and one adolescent from the region. With these surgeries, scientists from IVIC They demonstrate, once again, the effectiveness in bone regeneration and healing of injuries. This is even in patients who had previously undergone multiple interventions without positive results.

According to a Press release of the Ministry of Science and Technology, the initiative had the support of the Bolivarian Government, through the National Fund for Science, Technology and Innovation (Fonacit) and the Government of Yaracuy.

In addition, the pharmaceutical company Redvital made a donation of osteosynthesis material and equipment required to perform Advanced Cellular Therapy Surgeries.

Congenital Pseudarthrosis of the Tibia affects the normal development of the tibial bone and can cause disability in people.

The IVIC Cellular Therapy Unit is dedicated to basic stem cell research and technological development to apply them in patients who need to regenerate organs and tissues.

This research center is a pioneer in Latin America in these procedures.
