From Despair to Recovery

Synopsis
The age of regenerative medicine is here!

NHK documents Sapporo Medical University's clinical trials in regenerative medicine. Over a three-year period, the program follows two patients who suffer from severe paralysis, where their stem cells are cultured and reintroduced into their bodies via IV drip. These Mesenchymal stem cells repair damage in the spine, and both patients show remarkable improvement, with one even driving again. The program captures the phenomenal progress being made in this field.
