"A year after her first stem cell treatment, Sarah has stopped her chemotherapy treatments and cut out almost all of her maintenance drugs. She has received several cycles of therapy, totaling 2.5 billion of her own stem cells since the initial treatment, and she will receive more in 2016. Her physicians will reevaluate Sarah in 2017 to see whether her immune system has learned to self-regulate after two years of stem cell therapy."

"A stem cell injection that could kill pain for more than a month has been tested by scientists.
Many people suffering from chronic pain caused by the nerve damage of type 2 diabetes, surgical amputation, chemotherapy and other conditions find current painkillers have little or only short term effect."

"A $10,000 experimental medical procedure has helped saved the careers of two NSW players. Stem cells placed into the knees of Trent Hodkinson and Aaron Woods have helped resurrect their careers and has allowed them to leap into the representative arena. They both had severe knee problems which could have forced them into early retirement. Hodkinson had the procedure in 2012, Woods at the end of last season."
