Kims gets certification from centre
Hyderabad: Stem cell treatment for diabetic foot, lupus and scleroderma by the Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences Hospital has been cleared by the Institutional Committee for Stem Cell Research and Therapy of the government of India.
The permissions were granted after the centre treated patients with the disease successfully. A 55-year-old patient, Satyanarayan from Vijayawada, was suffering from diabetic foot and his leg was to be amputated. But the with the help of the stem cell culture, he has recovered and is now able to walk properly.
Dr Kanakabhushanam, head of department of the Kims Foundation and Research Centre, said, “With good outcomes, the Centre has granted the permission to start the department of regenerative medicine.”
Kims will be the first centre in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana State and the third centre in the country to be granted the permission. The centre has also got four cases of lupus as there have been documented reports from other centers in the West of good results and they are keen to try the same.
Dr Bhushanam said, “We are clearly following the guidelines laid by the Indian Council of Medical Research. Hence, all the treatment methods are in tandem with what is set by the Centre.”
