A good article about scientists injecting Stem Cells into the brains of mice with birth defects and watching them reverse the neural birth defects in the brain and even though the Stem Cells died they induced the brains own cells to wakeup and repair the defects.

My daughter has a terminal illness called Pumonary Hypertension. There is no cure. However, in Canada they are having some success with adult stem cells in developing a partial cure.

I hope all goes well for your daughter Blazer Prophet and that's encouraging to hear about Canada and stem cells .

From everything i've been reading over the last several years is that stem cell technology and treatments for many different types of disease are going to take off soon so keep the faith.

I saw a show which I think was called Medical Mysteries in which a young girl who had had pains and fainting spells for years, finally found a doctor who pointed them to another doctor who discovered what was wrong with her: Pulmonary hypertension. There was some buildup in arteries in the lung area which was gradually worsening. Why, they didn't know, but they said they would try a drug which was fed through a tube to these arteries and capillaries, via some opening in her body (forgot where.) She went to school as she normally would, and said the she started feeling better, right away. This buildup was gone and she was a normal teenaged girl, though I did wonder if she would have to go through this, again.

I have no idea if this would apply to your daughter, since there may be a number of different things causing the same problem. Anyway, here is a
short version of the show on youtube. The sound is out of synch, but you get some information about what was wrong with the girl.

I also have pulmonary hypertension, but fortunately it is not the "bad" kind.
