Mr. Li is an ischemia heart disease sufferer from China. He was diagnosed with ischemic heart disease 10 years ago.
Mr. Li was a choreographer and had adhered to healthy life style when he was young. When he was diagnosed with ischemic heart disease 10 years ago, he was prescribed with drugs to control his disease. He was only able to walk within 200 meters before gasping. As the disease deteriorated 8 years ago, he was admitted to hospital and received stent implantation. 2 years after implantation, under the recommendation of his friends, he had decided to undergo cell-based gene therapy.
Therapy and Procedure
Cell-based Gene Therapy (HGF and adipose-derived stem cells)
Conditions after Cell-based Gene Therapy for Ischemic Heart Disease
Two months after Mr. Li received cell-based gene therapy, he looked more energetic than before. His hair looked thicker and darker. He was now able to walk more than a thousand meters without feeling fatigue and planned to go for a holiday with his family. Mr. Li said he was really looking forward for this holiday as he had not been on any holiday for the last decade.
His son wrote that:” I’m really glad to see my father to be able to enjoy life again, I was worried about his condition when he first received gene-based cell therapy, but as time passes, the result is truly amazing. He always said that he wanted for a trip with his grandson and now I think this trip is gonna bring us together just like the old time.”
