Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, has ordered payment of all costs related to the treatment of critical cases of coronavirus through stem cell therapy.
The initiative comes after the Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Center, ADSCC, announced the development of an innovative and promising treatment for COVID-19 infections using stem cells.
The treatment was administered in the UAE to 73 COVID-19 patients who have all been successfully treated and cured of the virus by inhaling the treatment into their lungs after it was nebulized into a fine mist.
According to the ADSCC, the new potential therapy is a supportive treatment that rather helps coronavirus patients overcome the symptoms of the virus. However, it does not kill the virus on its own.
The treatment has been given to patients along with the conventional medical intervention and will continue to be applied as an adjunct to established treatment protocols rather than as a replacement.
