Navi Mumbai-based Urologist-cum-regenerative medication researcher, Dr Pradeep V. Mahajan, 61, stated that the stem-cell/lyophilised platelet treatment is a confirmed protocol for Covid and post-Covid sufferers on OPD foundation, with out requiring hospitalization for concentrating on the first lung illness.
Dr Mahajan – Chairman of StemRx Biosciences Options Pvt Ltd – stated that the lungs are the prime goal of Covid, inflicting most morbidity, highest keep in ICU/ventilators and deaths, and post-treatment, the affected person requires oxygen for a number of months as lungs develop fibrosis.
“Most medication, medicines, numerous types of remedy and even vaccines fail to provide the specified success price as they’re concentrating on the virus, not its surroundings. So, to outlive, it retains mutating, and we fumble for newer cures. My protocol is straightforward – I sort out and strengthen the surroundings which kills the Coronavirus naturally,” Dr Mahajan identified.
Elaborating, he stated for this, his group acquires blood platelets – thought-about the primary line defence of the lungs, adopted by white blood corpuscles and platelets for the following stage of the therapeutic course of.
“We take the platelets from common blood banks or donors, they’re lysed, (to take away its partitions to extract the granules), convert them right into a powder and administer as a combination by a Nebuliser or a Rotahaler instantly into the lungs – much like any bronchial asthma sufferers,” Dr Mahajan stated.
These pumps (Nebuliser-Rotahaler) are simply obtainable for between Rs 250-Rs 1,500 apiece, whereas the stem-cell concoction utilized in them is ready in a particular lab machine.
Presently, Dr Mahajan has put in one such small capability machine on the StemRx facility, Seven Hills Hospital in Andheri, Mumbai.
“At present prices, a affected person must pay round Rs 600-700 per vial, wants 14 vials for per week, after which 1 vial day by day for 3/4 weeks for restoration from post-Covid morbid circumstances like lung fibrosis. Sufferers might be handled at house throughout quarantine, with our fleet of ambulances to assist administer the answer to them, and eliminating the stage for oxygen beds or ventilators,” Dr Mahajan smiled.
Within the early section of the illness, he claimed that the stem-cell/lyophilised platelet treatment works like a miracle, reduces hospitalization wants by over 50 per cent, axes a large load off the government-private well being community, moreover stopping mutations of the virus and slashing post-Covid problems, as are being witnessed now.
Dr Mahajan’s machine (Freeze Drier/Lyophilizer) – costing round Rs One crore – produces 3,000 vials day by day although larger machines can enhance manufacturing enhancement to cater to main cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Bengaluru, Thiruvananthapuram, Chandigarh, Ahmedabad, and so on, inside a fortnight.
“I’ve approached the Maharashtra Authorities, the Union Health Ministry and different states to assist us arrange comparable amenities nationwide, or at the very least in all districts the place Covid is taking an enormous toll. We are able to overpower the virus by the year-end at a fraction of the prices now being spent per affected person by the federal government,” Dr Mahajan declared.
He added that stem-cell remedy/lyophilised platelet nebulisation would work complementary to different remedy protocols, at the very least until it may be produced on a mass-scale to make it obtainable in each neighbourhood household physician’s clinic to be prescribed as ‘home-treatment’.
The scientist can be exploring prospects of native corporates or Members of Parliament funding one such Machine for his/her constituency out of the MPLADS to cater to the native inhabitants and stop overloading medicare facililties.
