Today the Charlotte Lozier Institute announced the release of its latest testimonial video at StemCellResearchFacts.org, a project of the Washington, D.C.-based research and policy group that serves as the education arm of Susan B. Anthony List. The video revisits Laura Dominguez-Tauer, a young woman with a spinal cord injury whose story was first told in 2011.
A car accident left Laura paralyzed from the neck down at sixteen years old. Doctors believed she would never walk again, but through a cutting-edge treatment with adult stem cells, physical therapy, and determination, she is defying expectations. Two years after her injury, Laura became one of just a handful of patients worldwide at the time to undergo an experimental procedure using her own adult stem cells. She has since regained feeling in her entire body and dramatically improved mobility, standing with the aid of a walker. Laura married and is now the mother of a little boy. “I absolutely believe in the power of adult stem cells,” she says.
Dr. David Prentice, Vice President and Research Director of the Charlotte Lozier Institute and an international expert on stem cells, hailed the new video, saying:
“Laura rightly rejected the initial gloomy prognosis that could have robbed her of her future had she given up then. Adult stem cells have shown validated success in treating the most intractable conditions – not only spinal cord injury, but stroke, autoimmune disease, cancer, and more. Sometimes exotic experiments make attractive headlines and raise people’s hopes, while ultimately going nowhere, but Laura’s ongoing improvement shows adult stem cells deliver immediate and lasting results that make a profound difference in patients’ lives. Thanks to adult stem cell treatment and her spirit of determination, she has her mobility, her sensation, and her dreams back.”
StemCellResearchFacts.org, a project of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, was established in 2009 to facilitate and form a worldwide community dedicated to helping individuals, patients and families discover, learn and share the latest advances in adult stem cell research. To that end, the website has published 16 video testimonials – backed by peer-reviewed published science – featuring patients who have undergone successful therapies for a variety of conditions using adult stem cells. They also convey the testimony of doctors and researchers on the merits of these treatments and the need for more resources to make therapies available to people in all walks of life.
