Dr. Runels contracted with Dr. Andrew Goldstein to test methods developed by the O-Shot® provider group for treating Lichen Sclerosus. After Dr. Runels flew to Dr. Goldstein’s office and demonstrated the technique, as they prepared to launch the research, the two of them filmed the following history-making video...
Since that time, the method DID prove to be helpful: Women suffering with lichen sclerosus were treated with the O-Shot® methods. The women underwent biopsies of the affected areas before and after treatment. Then two dermatopathologists who were "blinded" to which was the before and which the after, looking at biopsies, determined that most of the women showed improvement (less inflammation on biopsy). The women also reported a statistically significant improvement in symptoms!
Still, we must be careful before saying that all women suffering with Lichen Sclerosus should be treated this way. This method (developed by key members of the O-Shot® provider group) should undergo further evaluation and confirmation by other experts before becoming adopted by every physician. The way the PRP is prepared is important. How it’s injected is important. And, simply the diagnosis and thinking about lichen sclerosus should be done by someone familiar with other methods of treating the disease.
Still, this research represents a MAJOR breakthrough in the treatment of the disease. Notice that stem cells were NOT used. Simply the technology and methods of preparing blood as worked out by the O-Shot® provider group. So…
The initial results of the landmark study, planned in the above video, as presented at the July 2015 meeting of the ISSVD in New York, NY. You can read the exciting research results here (click, then scroll down to the next-to-last abstract) <–
A more extensive version of this research will be published this year!
We will begin a new study as soon as funding is obtained. There will be free medical care and extensive testing for each woman who participates and we anticipate the results could change the way medicine is practiced world wide. The cost will be $5,000 per patient and we are enrolling 30 women in the study... so we will start the study when we have $150,000 (none of the funds will be for administration...all will be used for the research).
