Are Stem Cells the Future of Autism Biomedical Therapies?

Dr Bradstreet is actively involved in research and treatment of autism using various types of stem cells. An animal model of autism has been created to study different types of stem cell therapies in collaboration with The Department of Experimental Medicine at the Second University of Naples, Italy. In addition, Dr Bradstreet is collecting outcome data on children treated using neuronal stem cells in Europe. This discussion will address all types of available and experimental stem cell types and their individual benefits and risks. Stem cell may prove to be a great hope for long-term immunological and neurodevelopmental therapy for ASDs.

Jeff Bradstreet, MD

Dr. Bradstreet obtained his medical degree from the University of South Florida and his residency training at Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center. He is extensively published on the subjects of immunology, toxicology and molecular biology. Currently he is enhancing techniques for stem cell yield from adipose tissue. This work continues and enhances his efforts at immunotherapy, heavy metal detoxfication and restoration of a healthy gut ecosystem.
