President of the UFC Dana white has claimed that his Menieres disease has been cured after undergoing a type of Stem cell treatment. It involves using the patients own blood and injecting it back into them. See link below for the article, http://www.mmafightcorner.com/2013/...00-percent-cured-stem-cell-procedure-germany/ From wikipedia, Orthokine is an experimental medical procedure in which a patient's own blood is extracted, manipulated, and then reintroduced to the body as an anti-inflammatory drug to reduce chronic pain and osteoarthritis. Known in the United States as Regenokine, the process removes about 2 US fluid ounces (59 ml) of blood from a patient's arm, which is then incubated at a slightly raised temperature. The liquid is then placed in a centrifuge until its constituent parts are separated. The middle yellowish layer is dense with agents that are believed to stop an arthritic agent known as interleukin-1, which causes degeneration of the joints and the breakdown of cartilage. That serum is injected into the patient's affected area. The procedure reduces pain and discomfort in the joint. The treatment generally lasts five days, with six shots of the serum into the affected area. It is normal for a patient to receive annual injections to ease the joint discomfort. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orthokine If this is true it is very interesting that if it could heal inner ear nerve damage in the case of Menieres then maybe it has great potential with Tinnitus and hearing loss perhaps?
