SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
cell research institute of STC Life Co., Ltd. (Chairman: KYE HO LEE)
B&H Clinic (Representative Doctor: WON JU JUNG) successfully

Stroke refers to a disorder of partial or overall brain function that
lasts for a considerable period of time, its causes, other than
cerebrovascular disease, has not been found. Stroke is a general term
for disease caused by cerebrovascular disorders, commonly refers to the

body. Stroke occurs due to sudden neurological dysfunction regardless of
causes, Symptoms include headache, vomiting, hemiplegia, or partial
paralysis of body, sensory paralysis (or loss) of body part.
B & H Clinic intravenously injected stem
cells to stroke patients five times at intervals of two weeks. Mesenchymal
stem cells, one of the adult stem cells, are widely used for tissue
regeneration. Stem Cell Research Treatment Center (Ph.D: SANG YEON LEE)
of STC Life gathered and used some stem cells from fetal umbilical cord.
Patients who received stem cell treatment significantly reduced the
symptoms of paralysis such as speech impairment, arms and legs
paralysis. Also, the patients who were chair bound were able to walk
