A Governor With a Sense Of Vision

Bravo to Governor Rick Perry, for having a bold vision for the State of Texas!

Over the last two months, the Texas Tribune has reported that Governor Perry, a state representative with multiple sclerosis and the spine surgeon who performed the governor’s July 1, adult stem cell infusion have been putting the underpinnings in place for commercialization of this controversial procedure here in Texas. Two weeks after the Governor’s procedure, predictably, The State Board of Medical Examiners met to discuss how to regulate the procedure.

There are two things to consider when reading this story and then doing some research on the topic.

First, is this procedure and those others derived from the use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) safe and what are the long term results? The initial reports of the use of this methodology, particularly in the field of plastic surgery, both cosmetic and reconstructive, are highly encouraging. The Italians have been successful in assisting women who have had partial mastectomies or lumpectomies regenerate the damaged breast tissue. The Japanese are reporting favorable results. This is a good early sign, but what are missing are long-term results regarding the effect of implanting these cells in living tissue. That trials of these procedures in the field of reconstructive plastic surgery are ongoing in Asia and Europe will be helpful in answering this critical question. Though the procedure itself is controversial within the global medical community regarding the long-term results of such transplanted cell concentrations, the data thus far is certainly positive.

That said, and secondly, it seems this data is the very thing upon which Mr. Perry wishes to capitalize. The short-term results of such treatments are all highly encouraging and the science appears sound. The Governor then wants to address the controversies and build upon this and make Texas the center of, what he believes to be, the next great opportunity in Medicine. He sees the job creation and the spin-off, he sees the brightest scientific minds coming to Texas to live and work, he sees people from all over the world coming here to be treated for defects of all kinds using this technology. He is betting on the future. He has a vision and he’s willing to do something few politicians do; that is lead. Good for him…. and good for us in Texas and people all over.

I say move forward, carry on and grab the future to build better lives for Texans and for all people.
