Wan Chai, Hong Kong S.A.R., November 15, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- LEMed (Leading Edge Medical, Ltd.), the specialist stem cell and laser therapy research and distribution group announces that Dr. Roberto Fernandez Viña has formally accepted the company’s invitation to assume a seat on its Science Advisory Board, effective November 12, 2013.
Among Dr. Viña’s many accomplishments is a stem cell study, conducted in 2008, which proved that cardiology patients that underwent stem cell-based treatments had a survival rate 5 times better than those heart patients relying solely upon standard heart bypass procedures. The findings of Dr. Viña’s study were confirmed in 2010 by a clinical trial run by Dr. Bodo Strauer in Germany.
Dr. Viña, a native of Argentina, is a leading light at the forefront of the drive to expand the proliferation of stem cell-based regenerative and medical therapy and his acceptance provides a timely boon to LEMed’s efforts to bring these advancements into the mainstream. Dr. Viña has earned the well-deserved reputation as the stem cell pioneer of the Western Hemisphere by being among the first to offer stem cell treatments and conduct studies for the treatment of lung disease, heart disease and diabetes.
Mr. Don Margolis, Managing Director at Leading Edge Medical said, “We at LEMed are over the moon. Dr. Viña’s acceptance of our invitation is a profound endorsement for our company and a vindication of our unwavering faith in the potential for this exciting branch of medicine.”
“This is a significant accomplishment for LEMed. By securing the endorsement and technical input of such a recognized titan of frontier medicine, we have demonstrated the extent of the commitment we continue to make in our bid to make these therapies available to as many patients as possible,” he continued.
“We remain committed to further cementing the establishment of dual-therapy clinics that combine our unique adult stem cell-based treatments and the most innovative medical laser technologies across as many territories as possible,” Mr. Margolis concluded.
