Resolving TBI’s and Suicide Hailed as Most Important Scientific Breakthrough for 2019 Oxygen Under Pressure (HBOT) – Read Why Medical Studies Have Proven This Works

Durham, NC (January 15, 2020) - Congressman Andy Biggs (AZ-05) and Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) recently introduced the TBI and PTSD Treatment Act [House Bill 4370; Senate Bill 2504], in late 2019 to direct the Veterans Administration (VA) to furnish Hyperbaric Oxygen...

The AC133 antigen is a novel antigen selectively expressed on a subset of CD34+ cells in human fetal liver, bone marrow, and blood as demonstrated by flow cytometric analyses. In this study, we have further assessed the expression of AC133 on CD34+ cells in hemopoietic samples and found that there was a highly significant difference between normal bone marrow and cord blood versus aphereses (p <0.0001) but not between bone marrow and cord blood. Most of the clonogenic cells (67%) were contained in the CD34+AC133+ fraction. Compared with cultures of the CD34+AC133- cells, generation of progenitor cells in long-term culture on bone marrow stroma was consistently 10- to 100-fold higher in cultures initiated with CD34+AC133+ cells and was maintained for the 8-10 weeks of culture.
