More than 2,000 patients in the UAE have recently been treated using the stem cell therapy for free, with 1,200 already fully recovered from the novel coronavirus.
The treatment was conducted by the Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Centre (ADSCC) to all moderate to high-risk Covid-19 patients in UAE.
The new way of treating the virus was announced in May by a team of doctors and researchers at ADSCC led by Dr. Yendry Ventura.
The autologous stem cell-based therapy UAECell19 is seen to help the body fight the virus and make the disease less harmful.
It has been reported that through the treatment, the duration of hospitalization, especially for all moderate to high-risk Covid-19 patients, reduced from 22 days to just six.
