Stem Cell Therapy for Peripheral Artery Disease at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center 



Stem Cell Therapy for Peripheral Artery Disease

A new treatment option, using a person’s own stem cells, could hold promise for some of the hundreds of thousands of patients suffering from critical limb ischemia, which blocks blood flow to the legs resulting in constant pain, ulcer formation or gangrene. Researchers and clinicians at The Ohio State University Medical Center are leading a trial testing the effectiveness of marrow-derived stem cell therapy for patients affected by critical limb ischemia (CLI). Dr. Michael Go was interviewed. This coverage resulted from a multimedia release distributed by OSU Wexner Medical Center Public Affairs and Media Relations, available online at: http://medicalcenter.osu.edu/mediaroom/releases/Pages/Stem-Cell-Therapy-May-Help-Critical-Limb-Ischemia-Patients.aspx
