A patent has been granted by the Ministry of Economy for the development of an innovative and promising treatment for Covid-19 infections using stem cells.
The treatment was developed by a team of doctors and researchers at the Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Center, ADSCC, and involves extracting stem cells from the patient’s own blood and reintroducing them after activating them.
