Cuban Experts Promote Stem Cell Therapy
They began implanting stems cells obtained from the patients themselves at the Lucía Iñiguez Clinical Surgical Hospital in November 2008.

Stem-cells transplants have been successful to treat lower limbs affected by chronic arterial insufficiency.

The therapy consists of implanting stem cells in the damaged tissue to restore its functions or regenerate it.
