Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has ordered payment of all costs related to treatment of critical cases of coronavirus through stem cell therapy.
The initiative of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan comes after the Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Center, ADSCC, announced development of an innovative and promising treatment for COVID-19 infections using stem cells.
The treatment was administered in the UAE to 73 COVID-19 patients who have all been successfully treated and cured of the virus by inhaling the treatment into their lungs after it has been nebulized into a fine mist.
The ADSCC’s initiative aims to encourage medical research to develop a COVID-19 treatment by utilising human and technical capabilities, providing necessary technology and facilitating its use in all hospitals of the UAE.
According to the ADSCC, the new potential therapy is a supportive treatment that rather helps coronavirus patients overcome the symptoms of the virus. However, it does not kill the virus on its own.
It involves taking a blood sample from the patient with the therapy used to activate these cells so that they can get inhaled back into the lungs.
It is hypothesized to have its therapeutic effect by regenerating lung cells and modulating the immune response to keep it from overreacting to the COVID-19 infection and causing further damage to healthy cells.
The treatment has been given to patients along with the conventional medical intervention and will continue to be applied as an adjunct to established treatment protocols rather than as a replacement.
In a statement, the Ministry affirmed its aim to expand the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.
The infected individuals are from various nationalities, are in a stable condition, and receiving the necessary care, Ministry added. MoHAP also announced 3 deaths due to COVID-19 complications, bringing the total number of deaths in the country to 1,529.
The Ministry stressed in a statement on Wednesday that its aim to continue expanding the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.
The health authority announced in a statement that it is providing this service through its 'Doctor for Every Citizen' initiative, which was launched by the authority last December to fulfil the goals of Article 5 of the Fifty-Year Charter.
