ABU DHABI| UAE has developed an innovative and promising treatment of Covid-19 using stem cell. The patent was granted by the Ministry of Economy. A team of doctors and researchers at the Abu Dhabi Stem CellCentre has developed the treatment.
About 73 COVID-19 has been successfully treated and cured of the virus using the stem cell therapy. The treatment has been nebulised into their lungs in the form of a fine mist. The hypothesis says that the lung cells are regenerated using the stem cell therapy and it modulates the immune response to keep it from overreacting to the COVID-19 infections and causing further damage to healthy cells.
Initial phase of clinical trials was successfully completed and none of the patient who underwent the treatment using the above therapy has reported immediate adverse effect. Also, no interactions has been found with the conventional treatment protocols for COVID-19 patients.
Non-pharmacological interventions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 such as staying at home, social distancing and infection prevention and control measures remain necessary to reduce the burden of the disease on the healthcare system.
