The problem we solve: The provision of Stem Cell treatment via surgical methods in disorders/acquired injuries such as Alzheimers, Dementia, Stroke, Cerebral Palsy, Brain Injuries, Caudal regression Syndrome, Parkinson’s and Epilepsy is still in development, with costs predicted to be prohibitive for many years to come. This excludes the vast majority of people being able to access treatment to regain their quality of life.
About our solution: Non-invasive stem cell therapy allows us to harness existing neurogenesis within the individual to produce stem cells for as long as it is required via subcutaneous delivery which induces the production, differentiation and migration of stem cells in the brain to damaged areas. It is cost effective and attainable for everyone.Progress to date:
Strategic planning: Strategic Objectives and determination of partners and operational requirements. This has been completed.
International collaboration: we have issued memorandums of understanding to various collaborators at universities worldwide.
Funding and resources: We have resources and expertise in position currently and are now looking for funds so that we can begin Phase 1 of the clinical trials.

Would you like your child to walk again, or your sister to talk again, or for your husband to have his cognitive functions back so that he can go back to the work that he enjoys? This is what the treatment offers, a chance to recover lost motor and cognitive functions. Every life is precious and worthwhile and nothing is more profound than seeing a loved one gaining back some of what they have lost.
By inducing stem cells in the brain, it is possible to regenerate the brain. No surgery is required, it is the inducement and additional production of Stem Cells that you already have via injections and tablets. These Stem Cells turn into different types of neurons, glia, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, which use chemical signals to migrate to the damaged parts of the brain, restoring damaged pathways and creating new ones. Dr Jesus Devesa began his research 40 years ago and developed a way to harness neurogenesis to restore lost functions. There is other research as well that indicates that treatment can be effective.
Disorders and Insults such as Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, Near Drowning, Traumatic Brain Injury, Treatment Resistant Depression, Alzheier's and Dementia could be treated with good outcomes.
To prove the efficacy of a treatment that harnesses neurogenesis to regenerate the brain, thereby recovering motor and cognitive functions in a diverse range of disorders. Research on the below is available via research sites such as PubMed and Medline.
Proposed Scientific Objectives
To provide scientific evidence that neurogenesis can be harnessed for the regeneration of the brain :
2) Melatonin provides neuroprotection and repairs mitochondria, thereby improving cognitive processing and increasing processing speed. Melatonin is a powerful and safe hormone which is produced by cells in animals or vegetables (even unicellular) species. It acts as a strong scavenger of the toxic free oxygen radical species and acts as anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, cardioprotective, antitumoral (even in gliomas). Melatonin is also produced in mitochondria where it is able to replace the genetic deficit of factors I and III participating in the respiratory chain that leads to the production of energy needed for muscles, neurons, etc. It is an antiepileptic, and it has been recently shown that melatonin is able to destroy the beta-amyloid plaques that lead to neuronal death in Alzheimer`s disease, as well as block the phosphorylation of tau proteins which destroy neurons in AD. Melatonin can be easily detected in plasma.
By being able to prove the above we will be able to provide a cost effective form of non-invasive stem cell treatment for patients with injuries/illnesses or disorders.The final objective is to be able to provide this treatment to recover cognitive and motor functions so that they return to a fairly normal life .
Non-invasive stem cell treatment for a diverse range of disorders will recver motor and cognitive functions which could not be recovered previously due to the limitations of neuroplasticity.
We would establish a network of Doctors worldwide who may access and use the treatment. Often in rural areas and poorer coutries the cost of treatment is prohibitive and requires medical interventions that cannot be accessed. This provides an opportunity for ease of access and cost effective treatment with positive outcomes.
We would establish a partnership with organizations wo are interested in a cost effective solution that has a significant impact on the recovery of patients. This would be flexible and dependent on the organization.
