NFL Super Star Chris Herndon on his visit to Bioxcellerator for Stem Cell Therapy

Recommended Posts

Since Cliff Floyd has been retired for a while now, do you think he'd mind if Herndon took his nickname? "Glass".  Or, if he makes a fuss, "Glass II".

+1. Sounds like he’s out there taking his health serious. Hopefully the treatment works as he expects.

I know of one person who received stem cell treatment. Worked wonders.

Think that phrase is a bit over used, most definitely in this case and I’m a big Chris Herndon fan as well a a Canes fan.

His hamstring still needs treatment?  That’s not good.  Going to the cocaine capital of the world to get cutting-edge treatment?  I think he’s being separated from a lot of his money under questionable circumstances. I wonder what the Jets medical staff thinks of this quackery.

You got the height, it’s the rest of the stuff you need to work on.

I have zero expectations that he will add value. Any contribution will be a bonus. 

Talk about a bust

"My agent said this was a great opportunity..."

This is just an endorsement deal. After watching the video I'm less concerned about the present condition of his hammy. It was probably already 100% before he went down there, thus providing this mall clinic a guaranteed patient cure in advance of "treatment" he received. Otherwise no treatment center, regardless of its legitimacy, releases such a purely promotional video before a successful medical outcome is known.

All jokes aside, I'm super excited to see what he and Griffin can do as a tandem this year for Sam.  Could be special.

All he's been so far is a liability. Injury prone headcase.

I have no problem with this, he is also not the only athlete to do it.  There are much bigger names in the game that go and get this type of work done which mainly is done outside of the US, due to hesitancy to allow stem cell testing here.  

Off the top of my head i know max scherzer has done it, nadal for tennis, ronaldo in soccer has used it as well.  Kobe used to go to germany and get stem cell injections for a degenerative knee condition.  A lot of NFL guys actually have been turning to it to return from surgery faster.

Lot of athletes may do it but there is no data saying it works according to these people from Harvard:hsci_tag_transparent_background.png?m=14

Stem cell tourism 

TourismSCL2013.jpgFalse hope for real money

Internet sites for clinics all around the world—including the US, but especially in China, India, the Caribbean, Latin America, and nations of the former Soviet Union—offer stem-cell-based treatments for people suffering from a dizzying array of serious conditions.
 
Never mind that cancer is the only disease category for which there is published, scientifically valid evidence showing that stem cell therapy may help. Thousands, if not tens of thousands, of desperate people are flocking to clinics that charge tens of thousands of dollars for every unproven treatment.
 
Traveling for therapy, or “stem cell tourism,” was the subject of a panel discussion titled “Stem Cell Therapy and Medical Tourism: Of Promise and Peril?” arranged by HSCI in collaboration with the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics.
 
Brock Reeve, HSCI executive director, introduced the topic by pointing out that there are positive and negative aspects to medical tourism. For example, patients flock from all over the world to the Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Center Institute, and other Boston research hospitals for cutting-edge, scientifically validated treatments for a host of diseases.
 
But then there is the other kind of medical tourism, and every member of the panel agreed with speaker Timothy A. Caulfield, LL.M, the Canada Research chair in health, law, and policy at the University of Alberta, when he said that the stem cell tourism phenomenon “hurts the legitimacy of the entire field” of stem cell science and medicine.
 
While adult stem cells have been used for decades to treat a number of malignancies—bone marrow transplants are, in fact, are the only stem cell treatments that are not experimental.
 
George Daley, MD, PhD, a member of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute’s executive committee and past president of the International Society for Stem Cell Research, added that “we are seeing a growing number [of legitimate clinical trials] but all such uses are experimental ... and there is great skepticism as to whether we have” the scientific knowledge and basis even to “predict that these will be effective.” “It may,” he said, “take decades before there is certainty.” “The only stem cell therapies that have been proven safe and effective,” he said, “are those constituting what is known as bone marrow transplantation for treatment of some cancers.”
 
But the clinics selling stem cell therapy for a sweeping catalog of diseases aren’t offering patients places in clinical trials. They are touting what they claim are established treatments, with proven results. Caulfield said a number of his studies demonstrate that treatments are offered as safe, routine, and effective, but “none of what is being offered matched what the scientific literature said.” He accused the clinics of “financial exploitation” of desperate people, and said those who raise money to finance pilgrimages to them are “raising money to turn over to a fraud.”
 
I. Glenn Cohen, JD, professor at Harvard Law School and co-director of the Petrie-Flom Center, suggested that one way to slow stem cell tourism could be to prosecute for child abuse when the treatment involves minors. Cohen said that though he is sympathetic with parents seeking help for their ill children, “this falls under existing child-abuse and neglect statutes.”
 
Jill Lepore, PhD, chair of Harvard’s History and Literature Program, came at the issues from a very different perspective. “I don’t have patients,” Lepore said, “I have characters.” She said there is a kind of “faith in science that draws” some people to any promise of a cure for disease, no matter how specious. What fuels this false hope, she said, is “one of the most dangerous elements of our culture: that we have forgotten how to die.”

Griffin looked really good last year. He's the real supah-stah at TE.
