A treatment has been developed by a team of doctors and researchers at the Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Centre with promising initial results.
The new treatment involves extracting of stem cells from the patient’s own blood and reintroducing them after activating them.
The patent was approved by the Ministry of Economy to use for treating Covid-19 patients.
The treatment was used in the country to 73 patients who have all been successfully treated and cured of the virus by inhaling the treatment into their lungs after it has been nebulized into a fine mist.
“It is hypothesized to have its therapeutic effect by regenerating lung cells and modulating the immune response to keep it from overreacting to the Covid-19 infection and causing further damage to healthy cells,” WAM reported.
