in my opinion when we have a stem cell treatment for DMD we will see the first emergence from the various clinics that offer stem cell treatments and advertise the same on the internet.

Found one hostipal in China which talks of treatment of DMD. They claim that DMD is treatable condition (info at http://www.beikebiotech.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=v...).

I did write a email to them asking for details on how exactly is the treatment done. Has anyone contacted them to investigate this possible cure?

Did you hear back from them?
I read the article and I want to believe it but maybe it's just me. When I read something like this it puts a lot of doubt in my mind because if one hospital in China had actually found a cure for DMD wouldn't everyone else jump on board and reserch it further? It would be interesting to see how many successful treatments they have done. For our boys I hope there is a cure and soon. When did you email the hospital and have you heard anything back?
I did not get any response even after follow up.

Looks like a careless posting on a Website
Incidentally I checked my mail box an hour after posting this message and I did have the response. Contents of the reply given below.

This is jsut a glimmer of hope for me. I will persue it and meet Beike personally. Do we have someone in Delhi who can meet these folks and check on their claims.

My parents went to Delhi yesterday however my brother will be going on the 3rd of March. I will send my son's information with him and see what we hear back from them. Will keep you posted.

Have you sent the info they requested? Have you heard from them again?
My parents who are visiting India spoke with them and are going to be meeting with them on Thursday. The lab is located in New Delhi and the treatment is a 26 day treatment that cost $25,000.

Please can you post what the out come is from this meeting?
Actually a little more poking around - the reporter won a Pulitzer prize for a series of articles back in 2004 on the subject of Stem Cells: Here is an index of the articles: http://www.pulitzer.org/works/2005,Explanatory+Reporting

Can you ask in that clinic before you spent your all money how they plan to overcome immune system in case using donor cells or in case of using patients own cells how they paln to fix those cells before using them as those would have same genetic material as your son's muscle cells.( same error in the dystropin gene too)
I have tried getting background information about the people involved with the clinic in Delhi. Till now nothing has popped up so I am concluding that these folks are not well established in medical circles in Delhi. My hopes are not high.

I have submiited some information but no response yet.
