Medical Breakthroughs 8/15/19 - Stroke Recovery

Fifth most common cause of death and the number one cause of long-term disability.

We're talking about stroke ... and now researchers are conducting a new clinical trial called pisces three to see if a drug made from stems cells helps with stroke recovery.

Martie salt has the details.

A simple signature speaks volumes for malena (muh-layna) buck.

Malena (muh- layna) had a stroke during saint pete college graduation she couldn't write her name, walk or even talk with her students.

"i was walking in a walker for a long time.

I couldn't move my hand."

(:06) but then, through a u-s-f study, she had a drug made from stem cells injected in her brain at the university of chicago.

This was after the surgery.

You can see her waving her right hand.

"i told the doctor and he goes they can't work that fast but the minute i got out of surgery i could do things that i couldn't do before."

(:12) u-s-f and tampa general hospital doctor scott burgin says most patients can feel the effects of the stem cells gradually.

"preliminary research has shown that in these circumstances its very encouraging that using these cells can aid recovery."

(:08) doctor burgin says right now most stroke recovery treatments are limited to conventional therapy.

He says there isn't medication that helps with recovery.

This would be kicking the door open to an entire new realm of possibilities for people with the most disabling medical condition that we come across in the world."

(:11) after the surgery malena's (muh- layna) life changed dramatically.

"if it wasn't for them or the stem cells, i would have just given up."

(:07) i'm martie salt reporting.
