Episode 69: Autoimmune Disorders - There's Hope! With Dr. Rafael Gonzalez and Dr. Keith March

Haylie Pomroy is joined by her guests, biochemist and cell expert Dr. Rafael Gonzalez and cardiologist Dr. Keith March, to discuss the science behind autoimmune disorders and how stem cell therapy could be the future of treatment for patients with autoimmunity.

They also tackle the details of an ongoing clinical study on the effectivity of umbilical cord-lining stem cells as a treatment for polymyositis and dermatomyositis.

Keith L. March, M.D., Ph.D., FACC, has dedicated his career to bringing new medical approaches to patients. His publications include more than 150 manuscripts. He was the editor of the first book dedicated to cardiovascular gene transfer. Dr. March’s research has resulted in more than 55 worldwide (20+ U.S.) patents, with others pending. He invented the Closer, a widely-utilized patented suture-mediated closure device, used to close the puncture wound in an artery following heart catheterization. He has served as a scientific advisor to numerous pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies. Most recently, he co-founded NeuroFx, Inc., based on a patented platform of technology originating in his laboratory that establishes the therapeutic factors secreted by stem cells as powerful therapeutics for critical medical needs, including degenerative and ischemic diseases of the nervous system.
