Can enough money buy you eternal youth?

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)

A bath in donkey’s milk, the blood of children, tortoise scrotum soup — the list of anti-aging treatments goes back centuries.

No need to go that far.

It turns out, the best kind of anti-aging treatment is inside one’s own body, and the rich are taking advantage of it, exploring the latest research in new technologies, genome mapping and stem cell treatments.

Among them is Oracle billionaire Larry Ellison, a large investor of the Ellison Medical Foundation, which supports research exploring the biology that underlies aging and age-related diseases. And there’s billionaire Peter Nygård, who says he wants to live forever (or die trying), and has suggested he’s found the keys to immortality in stem cell research.

Some doctors agree that stem cells are a key part of chasing youth.

“If you’re a wealthy guy and haven’t stored your stem cells, I think you’re a total idiot,” said Dr. Lionel Bissoon, a New York City physician who sees a number of stressed out, wealthy patients.

For the long term he recommends stem cell storage, which works as a sort of rainy day insurance. The cells are extracted, preferably when the patient is on the younger side — around 30 is said to be a good age — and can then be used to boost an immune system or help to rebuild damaged organs later.

Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj stores cells at his South Florida Bone Marrow Stem Cell Transplant Institute in Boynton Beach, Fla.

“People are looking and finding ways to be able to help them to live longer to spend the money they’ve earned,” he said.

Stem Cell Webinar: Aging & The Immune System – This April 9th at 4pm Eastern Time

Stem Cell Webinar - Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj

Stem Cells, Aging, & The Immune System

Do Stem Cells Hold the Key to Unlocking the Mystery Behind Aging?

As much as the medical community has been trying to cure major diseases like cancer, Parkinson’s, diabetes, etc., could it be that the real disease to understand is aging?  As our immune system ages and decreases in function we start to see dysfunction both internally and externally.

Internally, we see critical markers such as Natural Killer Cell function and Naïve T Cells decrease.  Externally, as patients age, we see wrinkled skin, slowness of movement, and increased susceptibility to infection.

In this webinar we will discuss how the immune system ages, the manifestations that it has in the body, and potential ways that we might have of either slowing down or even reversing the immune aging process. New clinical and laboratory data will be discussed that highlights key concepts in this process.

Come and join Dr. Dipinarine Maharaj MD this Wednesday April 9th as we discuss evidence based information on stem cells, aging, and the immune system.

The Annie Appleseed Project began as Ann Fonfa’s personal answers to questions (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAAHa5zDsUI) (video) on natural(CAM) therapies, it has become a nationally recognized organization, and is now a nonprofit corporation in the state of Florida. (May 23, 2003)and tax exempt, 501 (c)3 as of August, 2003. From its inception the Annie Appleseed Project decided to Challenge the Existing treatment paradigm, to Question the existing research methods and subjects, and to Propose new directions for both ending with true Integrative Oncology.
Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj MD is one of America’s leading experts on adult stem cells and cancer treatment.  He has published extensively on bone marrow/stem cell transplants and peripheral blood stem cell collection in revered publications such as the Lancet, and Blood. Dr. Maharaj has also pioneered new protocols for Parkinson’s disease, neurological illnesses, and diabetes.  He was part of the pioneering group in Scotland that developed stem cell transplants for blood cancer patients.  Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj is currently running an FDA approved Phase I/II Clinical Trial for Solid Tumor Cancer Patients.

Traumatic Brain Injury Clinical Study Information

Today, we understand a great deal more about the healthy brain and its response to trauma, although science still has much to learn about how to reverse damage resulting from head injuries.

TBI costs the country more than $56 billion a year, and more than 5 million Americans alive today have had a TBI resulting in a permanent need for help in performing daily activities. Survivors of TBI are often left with significant cognitive, behavioral, and communicative disabilities, and some patients develop long-term medical complications, such as epilepsy.

“Our work with TBI patients is some of the most important that we do.  Our brave men and women in the military deserve the very best.” – Dr. Dipnarine Maharaj M.D.

Other statistics dramatically tell the story of head injury in the United States. Each year:

  • approximately 1.4 million people experience a      TBI,
  • approximately 50,000 people die from head injury,
  • approximately 1 million head-injured people      are treated in hospital emergency rooms, and
  • approximately 230,000 people are hospitalized      for TBI and survive.
Study/Product Aim

The   principal objective of this research program is to test the use of Granulocyte   Colony Stimulating Factor, a stimulator of pluripotent stem cell production,   for the recovery of function of individuals with treatment refractory   moderate-severe TBI. Complete characterization of physiological and   psychological measures (with INAS) and immunological measures will occur.

Approach

Veterans   from S. Florida with treatment refractory TBI will be recruited for G-CSF   treatment.  Physiological,   psychological, and immunological characterization will be compiled at pre-   and post-G-CSF treatment, and at 3, 6, and 12 months following.  Multivariate repeated measures statistics   will be applied to clinical measures. Integrated analysis using random forest   classifier will be used to compile all acquired data sets.
