Has anyone here heard of Tristem?

They claim to use a new process of 'retrodifferentiation' to convert a patients own blood cells into stem cells, which can then treat several diseases, including ALS.

I'm should I be sceptical or hopeful?

Skeptical...stem cells are undifferentiated cells and this sounds iffy. Check on ALS Untangled web site...these professionals are doing a wonderful job unmasking the charlatans...and there are a bunch. There are real stem cell trials going on in the US at Emory in Georgia and some international ones. We can be hopeful but informed.

I think that Israel has some studies underway. I think Teva is the company involved. I don't believe anything like this has been approved for market yet. Check out ALS Untangled and the scam watch here on the forums.

sounds exciting, but how the hell can we take part in this trial or a similar one?... unfortunately we can't wait with this disease!

I sent ALS Untangled a request to look into Tristem a while back but no news as yet (that I'm aware of). I'll check out those other trials!
