Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Karine Kleinhaus discuss the following:

  • Can you explain your company’s medical technology? How do you turn placenta cells into life-saving medicine?
  • I understand these cells work to repair the body against a number of conditions, can you explain what areas will these cells help patients? I understand nuclear attacks are also on your list? 
  • I read that these cells called PLX-R18 cells are being looked at by the National Institute of Health? Why is the NIH interested? 
  • I understand that this work you are doing with the NIH may also lead into helping cancer patients later on, can you explain how that will work?
