Re-Stem Biotech Provides Banking of Immune Cells for Medical Staff in Hubei
By: ReStem Biotech
As of 24:00 on February 9, the cumulative number of confirmed cases of the new coronavirus has increased to 35,982, with 6,484 severe cases, 908 deaths, 3,281 cured cases, and 23,589 suspected cases. The First Affiliated Hospital of Gannan Medical University held an expedition ceremony before its medical staff headed towards Wuhan, capital of Central China's Hubei province, the epicenter of the virus. Re-Stem contributed to their fight against the coronavirus by providing the banking of immune cells for these first-in-line medical staff.
There is currently no vaccine against or specific treatment for coronavirus. A virus is a common microorganism in nature and there is no way to completely kill it. Even if it invades our body, drugs can only inhibit its activity and prevent it from continuing to reproduce. The same is true for the coronavirus. Although it cannot be killed, like other viruses, we can use existing drugs to inhibit its activity and prevent it from multiplying in the human body. The fight against this virus is dependent on the body's immunity. The immune system is a barrier against bacteria and viruses. It is an important way for the human body to recognize and eliminate foreign invasions and ensure physical health. So far, all treatments have only dealt with the symptoms of the human body after infection. Essentially, they are fighting for the immune system of the human body, and ultimately rely on the immune system to kill the virus.
"Banking of immune cells for the medical staff who went to the frontlines of the epidemic is an attempt to protect the immune system," commented Benno Jiao, CEO of the Company. "We are proud to support these front-in-line medical staff by cryogenically preserving their immune cells at their most potent state for later use if and when needed. Together we stand to fight against this coronavirus"
