    This seems to be the new buzz words in rrevitilizing /renewing the body. So far, from what I've been reading, it's in the very earliest of trial stages therefore there is nothing available available as far as long term results. Also, only certain, very specific conditions and subjects are viable candidates. Age, general health, level of deterioration etc are part if all this..7

      I am looking into this.I have read some material and wrote to a clinic in Lithuania. They seem to say they can treat knee joint arthritis with this treatment.there are probably risks but then  there are risks with TRK too.

    I would also be interested in finding out whether that's an option instead of a PKR. I understand that Australia and New Zealand are more advanced in regenerative medicine.
