ABU DHABI -The Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Centre (ADSCC) announced this week that it had succeeded in ramping up the number of coronavirus treatments from 73 in initial clinical trial.

This breakthrough comes following a decision by the Emirati government to make treatment available free of charge for all moderate-to-high risk COVID-19 patients in the country.

A treatment, branded UAECell19, has previously demonstrated efficacy with no significant changes in adverse events reported, an absence of any unexpected serious reactions (such as anaphylaxis, allergies or sudden death) and no reports of any lung complications as determined by radiological exams from inhalation of the nebulised product.

A team of doctors and researchers at ADSCC, led by doctor Yendry Ventura, announced in May they had developed a new treatment for COVID-19 patients.

UAECell19, an autologous stem cells based therapy, appears to help the body fight the virus and make the disease less harmful.

Following an initial trial, researchers were able to conclude that UAECell19 reduced the duration of hospitalisation from 22 days to just six, when compared to patients who had received standard treatment.

Further analyses revealed that patients treated with the stem cells were 3,1 times more likely to recover in less than seven days than those treated with standard therapy.

67 percent of the patients who received the stem cells treatment owed their recovery to the new treatment.

ADSCC has since secured intellectual property rights protection for UAECell19, which opens the way for the treatment to be shared widely so more patients can benefit.

ADSCC said researchers are at various stages of several investigatory efforts to establish effectiveness (Phase 3 trial), optimal efficacy of dosage, and efficacy to treat other respiratory diseases such asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis.
