The process is a three-stage procedure:
First, researchers inject stems cells from the patient’s own blood back into their body.
They then inject peptides into the patient’s spinal cord.
Lastly, the patient undergoes a two-week course of median nerve stimulation to try and reverse brain death while under observation via MRI scans.
The trials are part of a broader project called ReAnima.
“The Mission of the ReAnima Project is to focus on clinical research in the state of brain death, or irreversible coma, in subjects who have recently met the Uniform Determination of Death Act Criteria, but who are still on card-pulmonary or trophic support – a classification in many countries around the world known as a ‘living cadaver’”, Pastor says.
