LONDON, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Thorn Medical PLC ("Thorn" or the "Company"), the international healthcare group, today announces that it has received full approval from the Bahamas Ministry of Health to carry out stem cell research and treatment on humans.
The approval allows Thorn to use human stem cells to cure or treat the full range of conditions and illnesses that humans are prone to.
Jack Kaye, Thorn Medical's Chief Executive, said: "Human stem cells will allow us to regenerate human tissues and have the potential to cure, rather than merely treat, an incredible number of diseases and conditions, from cancers through to quadriplegia.
"We have already done amazing things with animals, such as growing new tendons in race horses, and have achieved similar success in treating a British quadriplegic who can now stand and move both arms, which would have been considered a miracle in the past. The potential to extend stem cell treatments even further is unlimited and we look forward to rising to the challenge of curing many of mankind's ills."
The Ministry of Health, National Ethics Stem Cell Committee for the Bahamas, added "The approval of Thorn Medical's application for human stem cell research and therapy will put the Bahamas firmly at the leading edge of medicine in the developed world. The creation of this new medical industry will not only bring jobs and prosperity to our nation, but will allow us to cure many of the world's most dreaded diseases, which will benefit everyone, wherever they live."
